Samsung quietly releases another Android Go device, Galaxy J4 Core

  • Samsung just quietly launched the Samsung Galaxy J4 Core.
  • The J4 Core is an Android Go device, only Samsung’s second entry into that ecosystem.
  • Since the Samsung Galaxy J4 Core is a Go product, its specs are underwhelming.

It was only in August when Samsung launched its very first Android Go device, the Samsung Galaxy J2 Core. Now, only a few months later, its quietly announced that device’s follow-up: the Samsung Galaxy J4 Core.

Since this is yet another Android Go product, don’t expect to be blown away by specs; the Samsung Galaxy J4 Core is a budget device through-and-through but should be more than capable for anyone who needs a stylish Android Go phone.

Android Go: What is it and which phones run it?

The most noticeable difference between the J4 Core and its predecessor is the sheer size of the device: the J4 Core has a 6-inch display while the J2 Core only had a 5-inch screen. However, just because the phone is bigger doesn’t make it much more powerful — the J4 Core has an unnamed 1.4GHz quad-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of onboard storage, a display resolution of 1,480 x 720, a 3,300mAh battery, a single rear 8MP camera, and a single front 5MP camera.

The device comes in three colors: black, blue, and gold.

Samsung didn’t announce a release date, countries of availability, or pricing information for the Samsung Galaxy J4 Core. However, considering the J2 Core costs around $100, it’s reasonable to assume this one won’t be much more expensive than that.
