Samsung’s Galaxy J series was first brought to the market back in 2013 and initially began as a higher-end style device with the original Galaxy J having a 1080p display and 3GB of RAM. This idea quickly changed as the Galaxy J1 dropped all the way to 512MB of RAM but was released the year after its predecessor. The series has evolved into a mid-range product line for the South Korean conglomerate and the company has just announced an Android Go version of the device called the Samsung Galaxy J4 Core.
The original Galaxy J4 was launched earlier this year in May, but we have actually focused more on its variant, the Galaxy J4+. The company launched the Galaxy J4+ with its own Infinity Display technology back in September and then we heard rumors about 1st party gradient color cases for it as well. Since then things have been rather quiet in regards to additional Galaxy J4 variants but Samsung has just announced the Galaxy J4 Core with a 6-inch 720p TFT display, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, and running the Android Go version of Android 8.1 Oreo.
This is a rather interesting combination of specs for Android Go with the small RAM and storage sizes. However, it is running a quad-core SoC clocked at 1.4GHz (the Qualcomm Snapdragon 425) and has a 3,300mAh capacity battery to keep the thing running. It will be interesting to see how this compares to the other two Galaxy J models that Samsung has manufactured. Pricing and availability is not known at this time, but it will come in Black, Blue, and Gold.
