Background and Identification
Samsung Galaxy J is a series of Android smartphones released by Samsung Electronics. Samsung released the first phone in the series, the Samsung Galaxy J1, in 2015. Up until December 2016, various iterations of the Samsung Galaxy J1 were released, including Samsung Galaxy J1 Ace, Samsung Galaxy J1 (2016), Samsung Galaxy J1 Ace Neo, Samsung Galaxy J1 Nxt, Samsung Galaxy J1 mini, and Samsung Galaxy J1 mini prime. The Samsung Galaxy J4, Samsung Galaxy J6, and Samsung Galaxy J8 were all released on the same day in July 2018. Other phones in the Samsung Galaxy J series include the J2, J3, J5, J7, and J Max.
Samsung marketed the J series as an entry-level, mid-range, budget friendly smartphone option. Samsung’s original Galaxy J (model SGH-N075/SC-02F, released 2013) is not a part of this series, even though its naming convention is similar. In order to keep up with their competitors, Samsung discontinued the Galaxy J series in April 2019 and replaced it with the Samsung Galaxy A series.
The letter “J” in the Galaxy J series is for “Joy.”
