After the leak the other day, the Samsung J4 Core doesn’t surprise us with its official release today, but we will go over this once again. It’s the company’s second Android Go-powered handset after all and will probably be a good deal in the emerging markets.
The most notable feature would be the display – it’s still LCD, but it comes in a big 6.0″ diagonal and an HD+ (720 x 1480) resolution. Sadly, the chipset hasn’t been updated this year and it’s the same in-house Exynos 7570 Quad SoC with a (you guessed it) quad-core Cortex-A53 CPU clocked at 1.4 GHz that we saw with the J2 Core. Perhaps that’s why Samsung hasn’t listed the SoC in the specs sheet.
Anyway, memory configuration stays the same too – 1GB of RAM with 16GB of internal storage, which is expandable with up to 512GB microSD cards.
Its main shooter isn’t anything fancy – just a regular 8MP sensor with an f/2.2 lens while the front accommodates a 5MP camera with the same f/2.2 aperture.
The battery life is expected to be pretty good thanks to the 3,300 mAh cell giving juice to a low-res display and pretty underpowered SoC. And as mentioned before, the device runs on the Android Go platform with 8.1 Oreo out of the box.
As of now, no information regarding price and availability has been given. But we do know that it’s offered in Black, Gold and Blue.
