After launching the Galaxy J6, J8, A6 and A6+ in India just last week (Read First Impressions), Samsung has now launched the Galaxy J4 in the country. The smartphone is aimed at selfie enthusiasts and comes with an adjustable front LED flash which accompanies a 5MP front camera.
Unlike the J6 and J8, the Galaxy J4 does not feature an Infinity Display design. Instead, it comes with a 5.5-inch HD Super AMOLED display, with a 720 x 1280 pixels resolution and a 16:9 aspect ratio. For its processing needs, the Galaxy J4 uses an Exynos 7570 quad-core platform clocked at 1.4GHz. At the back is a 13MP camera with an F1.9 aperture. This entire package is powered by a 3,000 mAh battery.
The Galaxy J4 is available in two storage and RAM variants - 2GB RAM + 16GB ROM and 3GB RAM + 32GB ROM. Although both variants have the exact same specs, albeit storage and RAM, the Galaxy J4 with 3GB RAM and 32GB storage is priced higher at Rs 11,990. The base variant of the J4 with 2GB RAM/16GB ROM is prices at Rs 9,990.
In a press release announcing the new device, Samsung added that it includes a ‘Made In India’ feature for memory management. Called ‘Advanced Memory Management’, the feature helps users save space by automatically redirecting images and videos from social media applications to the external memory card. Advanced Memory Management also helps in keeping the device memory clean by deleting duplicate images received on social media messengers.
Further, the Galaxy J4 comes preloaded with Samsung Mall, a service that lets users shop by clicking a picture of the desired product and automatically getting results for the item across popular e-commerce platforms. There’s also an 'App Pair' feature, which opens a consumer defined pair of apps simultaneously in two multi windows for faster multitasking. Another 'Adaptive Wi-Fi' feature helps the Galaxy J4 turn Wi-Fi on and off automatically depending on the location.
With the Galaxy J4, Samsung aims to offer an affordable device within its “best-selling” J series range of devices in India. “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,” said Sumit Walia, Director, Mobile Business, Samsung India.
