Everything old is new again

At first glance, this "Samsung Galaxy J1" looks nearly identical to the Samsung Galaxy S3 from a few years back.

Upon closer inspection

It's been updated for modern times, though, with the bottom left button bringing up recently used apps instead of calling forth menu options.

Stylish trimmings

The Samsung J1 could feature a hint of silver around the edges. The edges may also be more rounded than Galaxy models.

Palm selfie

Like the recently introduced Galaxy A5 and A3, the J1 should making snapping selfies as easy as holding out your hand.

Entry-level cameras

Keeping with other rumored entry-level specifications, the J1 figures to offer a 5-megapixel rear camera and 2-megapixel front-facing shooter.

Ultra Power Saving Mode

The Samsung J1 should let users squeeze extra life out of the battery thanks to the custom Ultra Power Saving Mode.
