Samsung Galaxy J4 Core Android Go phone with 6-inch display may launch soon

The Galaxy J4 Core brings a basic design and entry-level specs with Google's lightweight Android Go running the show

A few months ago, Samsung announced the Galaxy J2 Core as its very first Android Go smartphone. Now, it looks like the company is preparing to launch its second Android Go phone, called the Galaxy J4 Core. The phone was recently spotted in a Brazilian online store, which suggests Samsung is gearing up to launch the device in that market. The Galaxy J4 Core brings a basic design and entry-level specifications with Google's lightweight Android Go running the show.

The Galaxy J4 Core is a bigger phone compared to the Galaxy J2 Core. It comes with a taller 6-inch HD+ (720x1480) display and thinner bezels all round to offer an 18:9 aspect ratio. It is powered by an entry-level quad-core chipset coupled with 1GB of RAM along with 16GB of internal storage. The handset supports storage expandability up to 256GB via a microSD card slot. The Galaxy J4 Core also supports dual SIM cards.

Having 1GB of RAM may sound really low, but that's what Android Go is designed for. It comes with an extremely lightweight interface with stripped down Go edition apps like Google Go, YouTube Go, Gmail Go and so that are optimised to work smoothly on phones with low memory and internal storage. Like the Galaxy J2 Core, the Galaxy J4 Core should also allow users to store apps and content directly on the microSD card to keep the 16GB internal storage free.

Cameras on the Galaxy J4 Core remain pretty basic as well with an 8MP sensor on the back with f/2.2 aperture and a 5MP front-facing sensor with LED flash. The Galaxy J4 Core is listed with a 3,300mAh battery and interestingly there is fast charging support as well over microUSB. As per the online store, the Galaxy J4 Core will be available in Blue, Black and Copper colours. The pricing and availability is still kept under wraps.

Since the Galaxy J2 Core was launched in India a while ago, it would not be wrong to assume that Samsung may bring the Galaxy J4 Core to India as well. The only question is when this will happen and the Galaxy J4 Core's pricing. Samsung has been struggling in the Indian market as rival brands like Xiaomi and Nokia have been offering better specced devices at really competitive prices.
