Samsung’s 2015 entry-level and mid-range smartphone lineups look to be entirely 64-bit enabled as yet another device has appeared with the new ARM-based chips onboard. The phone is known by its model number SM-J100F and it has popped up online through a benchmark website.
GFXBench which is responsible for leaking out information on numerous unreleased devices is also the source of the new details. The Samsung SM-J100F will be an entry-level smartphone and run on Android 4.4.4 KitKat. But considering that it has a Marvell PXA1908 processor onboard which is based on the 64-bit Cortex A53 with a 1.2GHz quad core configuration, version 5.0 Lollipop will certainly be planned for the handset in the near future.
The chipset will feature Vivante GC7000UL graphics with OpenGL ES 3.0 support. The listing also highlights that the phone will have a 4.8-inch display with WVGA visuals, 1GB of RAM and 4GB of build-in storage. There’s also a high chance that 4G LTE connectivity will be enabled since it’s supported by the processor.
The actual identity of the smartphone is still a mystery and it could be part of a new series. The OEM was previously rumored to be working on fresh lineups and it has already launched the A series with the E series getting leaked recently. GSMArena notes that the SM-J100F could be the first member in the J lineup, but that’s merely a guess.
