After debuting its first Android Go phone in August, Samsung is back with its second such model.
The Samsung Galaxy J4 Core boasts a 6-inch 1480×720 display — up from the 5-inch 960×540 screen on the Galaxy J2 Core — as well as an 8MP rear camera and 5MP front-facing camera. There’s 16GB of storage built into the Galaxy J4 Core, but if that’s not enough, Samsung has included a microSD card slot so that you can add more storage.
Powering the J4 Core is a 1.4GHz quad-core processor paired with 1GB of RAM and a 3300mAh battery. On the software side, Samsung has preloaded the Galaxy J4 Core with Android 8.1 Oreo (Go edition). Android Go devices come with fewer preinstalled apps and smaller app sizes, giving you access to more storage. Google’s suite of Go apps are more lightweight and are meant to work smoothly on devices with entry-level specs.
The Samsung Galaxy J4 Core looks like a nice option for folks who are interested in Android Go, but want something with slightly improved specs compare to the Galaxy J2 Core. Compared to the J2 Core, the J4 Core has a larger and higher-res screen that could be better for watching content on the go, and it also comes with double the built-in storage and a beefier battery. There’s no word yet on when the Galaxy J4 Core will launch or how much it’ll cost when it does, but because it’s an Android Go device, it should be too hard on buyers’ wallets.
