The new phone comes with slightly upgraded features and improvements over its predecessor.
The Galaxy J1 Nxt Prime features a 4-inch TFT capacitive touchscreen with 480 x 800 pixels resolution. The phone is powered by the Spreadtrum SC8830 1.2GHz quad-core processor and 1GB of RAM. The phone also has an 8GB of internal storage which is expandable up to 128 GB with a microSD card. J1 Nxt Prime features a 1500mAh battery similar to the J1 Nxt. Galaxy J1 Nxt Prime has a 5 MP rear camera with f/2.2 aperture which takes decent shots and also records a full 720p videos. Considering the hardware change, there isn’t much change in the new phone.
J1 Nxt Prime runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow which is a good upgrade on the phone. It also has other improved features like S Bike mode, Ultra Power Saving and Data saving mode. These improved features from Samsung will definitely be a good upgrade to the users. The Ultra Power saving and the Data Saving Mode was a great demanded feature in the earlier Galaxy Phones. The S Bike Mode is also a useful feature when you are riding. All these features from Samsung will treat you well when traveling and during an emergency.
With a 1500mAh battery, the phone can last for about 72 hours with minimal usage. The front camera isn’t that good for taking selfies because the phone has a VGA (Video Graphics Array) only.

If you are looking for an entry-level phone with decent specs at a low price then the Samsung Galaxy J1 Nxt Prime can be a good buy.
