Samsung is well-known for the fact that they always prize a sense of equality between the price that user will dish out for a new device and the quality of the specs that the phone will come with. This is why the company has a wide range of phones that cater to every possible buyer out there. Yes, the South Korean company is well-known for putting all of their hard work into their flagship smartphones, since they represent the best things that the company has to offer, but a large part of their sales is due to people buying midrange phones.
Samsung Galaxy J4 2018 is a midrange phone, and up until this moment we had very little to go on concerning the specs of the phone, its size, and other details. However, a new leak has managed to leave almost nothing to the imagination since it gave us all the info that we could need. Today we will be talking about the origins of this leak and explaining to you in great detail the specs of the device.
The source of the leaked Samsung Galaxy J4
The initial source of the leak was a bit hard to track down since the news was available almost everywhere and few stated where they got their info from exactly. However, we had a pretty huge clue to lead our investigation. We saw that the price of the device was set in UAH currency. This made us understand that the information must have come from a source in Ukraine. After a little bit of digging, we found the exact source: an online Ukraine store that had a very extensive listing for Samsung’s Galaxy J4 2018 already available on their website.
Samsung Galaxy J4 display
For a midrange phone, the size of the display is quite surprising. The screen will come with a 5.5-inch Super AMOLED display. The resolution of the screen is going to be 1280 x 720, and the aspect is probably going to be 16:9. Yes, it is not jaw-breaking news, but for a phone that is meant for the average buyer, Samsung did put a considerable amount of effort to design the display.
Cameras of the Samsung Galaxy J4
Do not expect J4 2018 to come with dual cameras. It will have only one camera on the rear end of the phone. This camera will be a 13MP one with an aperture of f/1.9. On the front end of the phone, we will see a 5MP camera which will also have flash. With the right lighting and a bit of talent, you will be able to take some stunning pictures without much of a struggle.
Processor, RAM and internal storage
The phone is going to be powered by the Exynos 7570 processor. It will come in two different variants. Users will be able to choose between 2 or 3 GB of RAM and either 16GB or 32GB of internal storage. Personally, we would go for the 32GB version since we love to have as much space as possible to stock all of our files.
Dual-SIM and MicroSD? OS?
If you decided not to follow our advice and you went for the 16GB of internal storage, then you may be happy to know that J4 2018 also has a microSD card slot that can support up to 256GB of additional storage. And the phone will even come with Dual SIM so you will have the option to use up to two SIM cards if you want to. The phone will work just as well with a single one so no need to panic. This smartphone is also set to come with Android 8.0 Oreo straight out of the box
Samsung Galaxy J4: Battery
Battery wise, the phone will come with a decent 3,000mAh one. This means that you will get almost up to one full day’s coverage with one charge. If you are one of those people that always need to have a full battery since you have a lot of work to do on your device, then we would like to suggest purchasing a power bank to ensure that you have all the energy needed to get you through your day. If for some reason you may want to take your battery out of your phone then you will be glad to hear that the smartphone has a removable plastic back panel, giving you easy access.
There was a small rumor going around saying that the J4 will come with a fingerprint sensor, but since we didn’t see or hear anything about that, then it is very likely that the phone will not have this feature. To some, this may be a letdown, and to others, this may only be a logical explanation for a phone that is midrange. Maybe in the future, all midrange phones will have fingerprint sensors, but for now just a few do.
Price for the Samsung Galaxy J4
Last but not least, we would like to talk about one of the most important topics when it comes to buying a phone, be it new on the market or not: its price. The Ukrainian website that had all the info about J4 2018 said that the price is 4,799 Ukrainian Hryvnia.
Now, we did not exactly know what that meant since we are not familiar with that currency, so we took to the internet and decided to convert it into dollars. We came up with a set price of around 185 dollars. That is not a lot of a phone that is part of the midrange spectrum. We may see a large number of people decide to purchase this smartphone after Samsung releases it.
