QMobile, a well-known name in Pakistan for low-end and budget friendly smartphones, has come up with a pair of low-end 4G enabled Android devices – Noir J1 and Noir J2.
The Noir J1 and Noir J2 are dual SIM supporting smartphones having a 5 inch IPS LCD screen with nominal 854 x 480 pixels resolution. The screen size and resolution seem to be targeting the first hand users of Android OS. Both the siblings brings Android 7.0 Nougat with Amigo OS on top to meet the latest Android OS in the market.
As one would expect from an entry level smartphone, the processor is a low end one. QMobile brings both the devices with a quad core 1.1 GHz Mediatek MT 6737M processor. However the Noir J1 features 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage whereas the Noir J2 has doubled the storage size as 2GB of RAM and 16GB of ROM. Users may extend the memory by up to 64GB by using a dedicated microSD card slot.
We also see a little difference in camera specs as the Noir J1 brings the same 5MP shooter on the front and rear whereas the Noir J2 has an 8 MP main camera at rear with autofocus and an LED flash and a 5 MP shooter at front with a flash for night-time selfie experience.
Both the devices are powered by an average sized battery with 2,500 mAh capacity that seems fair enough keeping in mind the specs associated with the smartphone and an average first time user.
