After introducing nearly half a dozen J-series smartphones a few days ago, Samsung has today added yet another handset to the lineup — the Galaxy J4. Originally announced last week, the phone features budget specifications and starts at Rs 9,990 for the 2GB RAM and 16GB storage variant. It will be available through various offline channels.
The Samsung Galaxy J4 comes with a traditional 5.5-inch Super AMOLED screen with a resolution of 720p and an aspect ratio of 16:9. Under the hood, the phone is powered by the company’s own Exynos 7570 octa-core chipset, 2 or 3GB of RAM, 16 or 32GB of internal storage which can be expanded through a MicroSD card, and a 3000mAh battery.
Out of the box, the Galaxy J4 runs on Android Oreo with Samsung’s custom skin on top. The camera arrangement houses a rear 13-megapixel sensor and a 5-megapixel with a soft LED flash on the front. The phone misses out on any biometrics hardware and hence, also lacks a fingerprint sensor. In addition to that, it’s compatible with 4G VoLTE, Dual SIM, and Bluetooth 4.2.
There are three color options to choose from — Black, Blue, and Gold. While the base variant is priced at Rs 9,990, the one with 3GB RAM and 32GB storage goes all the way up to Rs 11,990.
Commenting further on the launch, Sumit Walia, Director, Mobile Business, Samsung India, stated, “At Samsung, it is our constant endeavour to offer products and services that truly add value to the lives of our consumers. With 60 million plus devices sold & counting, Galaxy J series is India’s most popular smartphone series owing to the millennial focused meaningful innovation. Galaxy J4 comes packed with a host of new innovations like Advanced Memory Management, Adjustable Front LED Flash & Samsung Mall that makes it perfect for millennials.”
