Samsung Galaxy J1 Mini Prime Specs, Price, Features : Quietly Launched in the Philippines

Apparently, Samsung Galaxy J7 Prime isn't the only new Android smartphone that the Korean Giant introduced in the Philippines earlier this month, October 2016.

Yesterday - October 23, TP Friend Charles Quiachon spotted a curious Galaxy handset displayed at the Samsung Concept Store in SM North EDSA Annex; One that he hasn't seen before, even online.

The new Samsung Galaxy J1 Mini Prime looks identical to the regular J1 Mini model from earlier this year but this fresh release features subtle enhancements here and there.

To be specific, J1 Mini Prime has 1GB of RAM for better multitasking performance and already runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS compared to the 768MB RAM and Android Lollipop operating system of the earlier J1 Mini. And what's cool is that consumers can enjoy these improvements without paying extra.

Apart from those features, the other technical specifications are pretty much the same. Samsung Galaxy J1 Mini Prime is equipped with a 4-inch WVGA TN display, 5 MegaPixel main camera, VGA front cam, HD video recorder, Dual SIM Dual Standby capability (dual microSIM), 3G HSPA+ support, and a removable 1,500 mAh battery pack.

Underneath the shell, this handset is powered by a 1.2 GHz Quad Core processor (most likely still Spreadtrum SC8830) and has 8GB of internal storage that you can expand using the dedicated microSD card slot.

Available in two colors - Gold and Black, Samsung Galaxy J1 Mini Prime dons an official suggested retail price of Php 3,490 and is now up for purchase at all Samsung Concept Stores and authorized retail channels nationwide.

Now, for those who are wondering if this handset is a good buy for that amount: If you're a big Samsung fan and you believe that it's the only brand that's worthy of your trust, then this should be good for you if you're tight on budget. But know that there are many handsets from other manufacturers especially local ones like - Cherry Mobile, MyPhone and Starmobile, among others - with bigger screens and better internal hardware that can give more value for money, at least in terms of those features.
