The Samsung Galaxy J4 Core is now official and the phone's specifications have been listed on the company's Mobile Press website. The Galaxy J4 Core is an Android Go phone and therefore, sports modest specs. Pricing and availability details are not yet available.

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.

I am a cell and molecular biologist and computers have been an integral part of my life ever since I laid my hands on my first PC which was based on an Intel Celeron 266 MHz processor, 16 MB RAM and a modest 2 GB hard disk. Since then, I’ve seen my passion for technology evolve with the times. From traditional floppy based storage and running DOS commands for every other task, to the connected cloud and shared social experiences we take for granted today, I consider myself fortunate to have witnessed a sea change in the technology landscape. I honestly feel that the best is yet to come, when things like AI and cloud computing mature further. When I am not out finding the next big cure for cancer, I read and write about a lot of technology related stuff or go about ripping and re-assembling PCs and laptops.
