Samsung Officially Releases The Galaxy J Series in Pakistan

Samsung J Series targets low and mid-range segment of the market and has made a place for itself among the Galaxy Aces, Plusses, Primes and the rest of the uncategorised low-end segment. These phone have been around for a few months, but Samsung has finally decided to officially release the phones to Pakistan.

The Galaxy J series phones offer typical plastic designs combined with adequate processing speed, 4G connectivity and high-quality Super AMOLED screens. The phones are also optimised for the Asian market with data savings features.

The killer feature of the Galaxy J devices is the Ultra Data Saving Mode which reduces data savings by up to 50% for videos, 40% for social networks, and 30% for normal browsing. The feature is powered by Opera Max but is much more integrated than a separately installed app.

Samsung Galaxy J1 Ace

Samsung Galaxy J1 Ace is a slight downgrade over the regular J1, which is already available in Pakistan, and comes in as the low-end entry in the Galaxy J series. Offering the age old typical Samsung plastic design and big bezels, the phone is no looker, but that is to be expected from phones in the targeted price range. Despite the low price tag, the phone does offer a superior viewing experience thanks to the Super AMOLED display of 480×800 resolution. The 4.3 incher comes with a dual-core processor, half a gig of RAM, 4GB of storage plus microSD support, adequate cameras and dual-SIM support. There’s no 4g connectivity though available on the J1 Ace.

  • Dear All, Samsung wants to place a smartphone in every hand around the globe in comparison to Apple that only wants communication for people that have loads of money. We should appreciate what Samsung is doing. Not every person in this country can afford a 30K or even a 20k mobile bro. not everyone is as blessed as we are by Allah, so we should be thankful to Him for the bounties that He has bestowed upon us.
