Samsung Galaxy J4 Core with Android Go and 6-inch display goes official



Samsung has made its second Android Go smartphone official just a few days after the device was leaked. The Galaxy J4 Core succeeds the Galaxy J2 Core that was launched a few months ago in some markets including India. The official specs and design is no different that what last week’s leak told us. It brings a bigger display compared to the Galaxy J2 Core along with mostly the same entry-level specifications.

The Galaxy J4 Core sports a 6-inch HD+ (720×1480) display with an 18:9 aspect ratio. This is a whole inch bigger than the Galaxy J2 Core along with a bumped up resolution as well. The Galaxy J4 Core gets the same 1.4Ghz quad-core Exynos 7570 chipset coupled with 1GB of RAM. The device is offered with 16GB of internal storage that is expandable up to 512GB via a microSD card.

The Galaxy J4 Core is an Android Go device running a stock and lightweight version of Android 8.1 Oreo. This software is optimised to work smoothly on devices with 1GB of RAM or lower and minimal storage. It will come preloaded with customised Google apps such as Google Go, YouTube Go, Gmail Go. Samsung has also reworked most of its own apps as well to work smoothly on its Android Go devices.

Optics for the Galaxy J4 Core include an 8-megapixel rear camera with f/2.2 aperture and a 5-megapixel front-facing camera with the same aperture. The device houses a 3,300mAh battery, measures 160.6 x 76.1 x 7.9mm and weighs 177 grams. Connectivity options for the Galaxy J4 Core include Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.2, USB 2.0, GPS, Glonass and 4G support.

As of now, there is no word on whether the Galaxy J4 Core will be coming to India or not. The Galaxy J2 Core was launched in the country in August at Rs 6,190 across offline retail stores and Samsung’s online store. We expect the Galaxy J4 Core to have a similar pricing if it does make it to India. The official price of the device is yet to be announced.
