Samsung has made the Galaxy J4 Core official by listing it in its Mobile Press website. The Galaxy J4 Core is the company's second Android Go smartphone after the Galaxy J2 Core that launched a few months ago in India and Malaysia. 

The Galaxy J4 Core is powered by a 1.4 GHz quad-core SoC. Samsung hasn't mentioned the exact make of this chip but our guess is that it could be a variant of the Exynos 7570 that powers the J2 Core. The phone runs Android 8.1 Oreo (Go Edition) and given the low memory footprint of the OS, the phone makes do with just 1 GB RAM. There's 16 GB of onboard storage that can be expanded up to 512 GB via a microSD card. The Galaxy J4 Core sports a 6-inch 720 x 1480 TFT display. You also get an 8 MP rear camera and a 5 MP front facing camera along with all standard wireless connectivity options. The 3,300 mAh battery should help in offering a great all-day battery life thanks to the low-end specs. 

Samsung hasn't revealed any pricing or availability information for the Galaxy J4 Core yet. Hopefully we will get to know that in the coming days. Samsung is not exactly known for pushing out regular OS updates to its low-end offerings so those concerned about software updates should look elsewhere. With smartphones sporting more powerful specs and the full Android experience becoming increasingly affordable for the average consumer, do you think Android Go is still a viable option as we head into 2019? Let us know in the comments below.

Though a cell and molecular biologist by training, I have been drawn towards computers from a very young age ever since I got my first PC in 1998. My passion for technology grew quite exponentially with the times, and it has been an incredible experience from being a much solicited source for tech advice and troubleshooting among family and friends to joining Notebookcheck in 2017 as a professional tech journalist. Now, I am a Lead Editor at Notebookcheck covering news and reviews encompassing a wide gamut of the technology landscape for Indian and global audiences. When I am not hunting for the next big story or taking complex measurements for reviews, you can find me unwinding to a nice read, listening to some soulful music, or trying out a new game.
