With the recent quiet announcement of the Samsung Galaxy J Max, there was another one appearing in South Africa too, called the Galaxy J1 Ace Neo, as a tiny entry-level 4.3-inch smartphone. Below are the tech-specs listed from Samsung South Africa website:

  • Quad-core 1.5GHz CPU
  • 1GB RAM
  • 8GB internal storage (expandable memory available up to 128GB)
  • Measures 130.1 x 67.6 x 9.5 and weighs 131g
  • 4.3-inch Super AMOLED screen with 480 x 800 resolution
  • 5MP rear camera + 2MP front camera
  • Supports 4G LTE connectivity
  • 1900 mAh battery

For some reason, the Android OS version was not specified but we assume it's packing a 5.1 Lollipop in it with the given tech-specs. The phone handles video chats and will be available in white, black and blue. It also has Ultra Power Saving Mode for extending battery life.

We don't think we will be seeing this in Malaysia, but who knows? Stay tuned for more news at
