Samsung's second Android Go phone is the Galaxy J4 Core

Android Go phones are great options for folks that want reliable Android handsets while spending as little money as possible. Samsung released its first Android Go phone earlier this year in the form of the Galaxy J2 Core, and just a few months later, we have another entry with the J4 Core.

At first glance, one of the most noticeable improvements with the Galaxy J4 Core compared to the J2 Core is the display. The bezels have been shrunk down considerably and the screen itself is a lot larger at 6-inches instead of 5. The resolution has also been increased from 540 x 960 up to 720 x 1480.

Inside the J4 Core is a 1.4Ghz quad-core processor, 1GB RAM, 16GB of expandable storage (up to 512GB), and a 3,300 mAh battery. In regards to cameras, there's an 8MP f/2.2 sensor on the back and a front-facing 5MP f/2.2 lens.

Pricing and availability info is still up in the air, but seeing as how the J2 Core sells for around $100, that'll likely put the J4 Core in the $120 - $150 price range.

  • Just because they can get away with giving one gig of ram doesnt mean they have to or should. Ram isnt expensive. 1.5 or 2 gigs wouldn't kill Samsung.
    Not even a Go edition should have such meager ram. I thought we had finally passed the one gig baseline for any phone.
  • No sane mind should risk getting a Samsung ultra-low end device like this, you'll suffer eternally until you feel like flashing this in a toilet. Enough dissapointment from the J,A & S series If Samsung wanted to expand it's footprint in the entry level segment so badly they should have resorted to AndroidOne . Samsung experience isn't something u will drag to do Android Go. (I hope I got the "Go" concept accurately)
