Samsung Galaxy J4 2018 is an entry-level smartphone which was first spotted in Geekbench in the month of February.
Galaxy J4 is a dual SIM phone with the model numbers SM-J400F, SM-J400F/DS, SM-J400G, SM-J400G/DS. The Geekbench listing revealed important hardware specifications of the device.
After it was listed on Geekbench, the Galaxy J4 2018 also appeared on Wi-Fi Alliance website. While it has been days since we heard anything solid about this upcoming budget device, a new listing of the phone on Taiwan’s NCC certification website revealed the new Samsung Galaxy J4 with a bunch of real-life images.
Samsung Galaxy J4 Design
Samsung Galaxy J4 2018 is a compact, stylish device which has an acceptable finish that easily justifies its low budget pricing range. A bunch of images found from the NCC listing gives a clear idea of the phone’s look and key design elements.
The phone has a traditional old design with its home button on the front side with slightly smaller bezels making it look contemporary. The device is made mostly using plastic material sporting comfortably curved edges that should feel good to hold. The rear panel sports a matte black finish making it more durable, less prone to dust and improves grip.
The black variant of the Galaxy J4 2018 has been leaked but it we can expect a few other color variants available as well. With right pricing and Samsung’s reliable software UI wrapped over Android, this should be an able entry-level variant to look forward to this year.
According to the listing found on Geekbench, the Samsung Galaxy J4 2018 is powered by a 1.4 GHz quad-core processor. The company will use their own Exynos 7570 processor which will allow them to keep the pricing of the phone affordable without going with a Qualcomm processor.
The Exynos processor is paired with a meager 2GB of RAM which may not blow any benchmark results but is a decent addition for the average user. The listing also confirmed that the phone scored 622 in single-core testing and 1751 in multi-core processing capacity.
As with all latest devices, the phone runs on Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box which is a welcome addition as buyers may no longer have to wait for an Android update and it is a dual SIM model as confirmed in the leaked real-life images.
Camera, Speaker and Buttons
On the rear side, you can find a single camera with LED flash below and its specifications are not revealed yet. The camera and flash are enclosed within a small metallic frame with curved edges. Being an entry-level phone with a low-end processor and competitive pricing, buyers can’t expect it to sport dual cameras or offer great bokeh effect. However, it should easily get the job done when you need to take a snap.
There is an opening for speakers right next to the camera setup at the back. The charging slot is positioned at the top unlike the regular models in which it usually appears at the bottom. There are two buttons on the left side for volume control and a main power button on the right side. Interesting enough, the design doesn’t clearly reveal if there is a 3.5mm jack in the phone but we can see a pair of headphones coming along with the device!
