Magnetohydrodynamics simulations of collapsing cores predict that rotationally supported disks may form in strongly magnetized cores through ambipolar diffusion or misalignment between the rotation axis and the magnetic field orientation. Detailed studies of individual sources are needed to cross check the theoretical predictions. We present 0.06-0.1arcsec resolution images at 350GHz toward B1b-N and B1b-S, which are young class 0 protostars, possibly first hydrostatic cores. The images have been obtained with ALMA, and we compare these data with magnetohydrodynamics simulations of a collapsing turbulent and magnetized core. The submillimeter continuum emission is spatially resolved by ALMA. Compact structures with optically thick 350GHz emission are detected toward both B1b-N and B1b-S, with 0.2 and 0.35arcsec radii (46 and 80au at the Perseus distance of 230pc), within a more extended envelope. The flux ratio between the compact structure and the envelope is lower in B1b-N than in B1b-S, in agreement with its earlier evolutionary status. The size and orientation of the compact structure are consistent with 0.2arcsec resolution 32GHz observations obtained with the Very Large Array as a part of the VANDAM survey, suggesting that grains have grown through coagulation. The morphology, temperature, and densities of the compact structures are consistent with those of disks formed in numerical simulations of collapsing cores. Moreover, the properties of B1b-N are consistent with those of a very young protostar, possibly a first hydrostatic core. These observations provide support for the early formation of disks around low-mass protostars. Description: The data are provided as two separate FITS files, one for B1b-N and one for B1b-S. The data have been obtained with ALMA in continuum mode. Four continuum basebands with 2 GHz bandwidth, 128 channels each have been combined. Central sky frequencies on each band are 2336.5 and 338.4GHz in the lower side band and 3548.5 and 350.5GHz in the upper side band. The images have been produced by combining two observing sessions in two ALMA configurations C36-7 and C40-4, for a total of 30 minutes on source. The data processing and calibration is described in the article. The image units are Jy/beam.
