Samsung's most awaited device at present may be Galaxy S7, but budget phone Galaxy J1 (2016) with the potential to rock price-conscious markets is likely to arrive first. Now, images of the alleged smartphone have been leaked online, revealing more details.

Samsung Galaxy J1 (2016), successor of Galaxy J1 (2015), is seen in black, white and gold colours in the latest photos leaked on Twitter by @evleaks. The photos also hint at a slimmer bezel, physical button, dual SIM and microSD card slot. 

The South Korean electronics giant is yet to reveal the release date of the device, but it is expected to come by the end of this month as its predecessor -- Galaxy J1 1st generation -- was launched in January 2015. The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has also approved it, hence, it could come soon.

According to reports that have surfaced so far, Galaxy J1 (2016) will sport a 4.5-inch display with 480 x 800 pixels resolution, powered by Exynos 3457 processor that clocks at 1.3GHz and run on Android 5.1.1 Lollipop. It is also expected to come packed with 4GB internal storage and 1GB RAM, and a 5MP main camera and 2MP front snapper.

Galaxy J1 (2016) has been spotted with a price tag of Rs 6,686 on Zauba -- a website that keeps track of imports and exports in India, but the actual market price could be higher as Galaxy J1 (2015) was sold at Rs 7,190 when it was launched.

It may be mentioned that Galaxy J1, which was released last year, came with a competitive price despite good specifications. It has a 4.3-inch display with 480 x 800 pixels (217 PPI pixel density), dual-core processor clocking at 1.2GHz, 4GB internal storage expandable up to 128GB via microSD card, 512MB RAM, 5MP main camera, 2GB front snapper, Android 4.4.4 KitKat and a 1859mAh battery.
