Samsung launched the J2 core earlier this year as their first Android Go Phone. The phone really wasn’t anything special. It seems that the smartphone giant is looking to try again with the J4 Core. Their second Android Go phone which looks better but will it be enough to persuade the consumer?
The Samsung Galaxy J4 Core has been listed online through a user manual on the company website. The phone runs on Android 8.1 Oreo Go and has the proprietary look and feel of a low-end Samsung device.
Samsung Galaxy J4 Core – Just Another Android Go Phone
The main difference between the Android Go and the Android One program is how Android One offers 2 years of upgrades with decent hardware and stock Android. Android Go however offers slimmed down versions of popular Google apps like Maps and YouTube with a lower price matched with less hardware. According to some Geekbench listings, the phone is classified as the SM-J410F. It is speculated that the phone could have a Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 to power the phone with a low-end 1GB of RAM.
Price and Availability
We are still in the dark about further details on the phone such as storage, screen size and more, but this is honestly a phone you’d buy for your kids or an elderly person. There is nothing really spectacular or unique here. The phone will initially launch in South-East Asian markets in countries like India.
This is where there could be an appeal for the phone in a very specific demographic, but when sites like Flipkart offer some really good phone deals, there will hardly be any serious consumer who will even have a second look at the J2 or the J4 Core. No price is mentioned, but you should be able to buy fairly cheap.
We don’t know when the phone will be available, but it should launch any time this month.
