Samsung Galaxy J4 Philippines Price and Release Date Guesstimate, Four Key Features

For almost a decade now, Samsung has been releasing similar Galaxy Android smartphone models in both India and the Philippines.

Earlier today - June 1, 2018, the Korean tech giant launched the all-new Samsung Galaxy J4 in India, which led me to believe that it won't be long before the same handset reaches our shores.

As part of the company's Galaxy J-Series, this smartphone is positioned in the entry-level category or is crafted for consumers who may be a bit tight on budget but want to best features that they can get for their money.

Looking at the specs sheet of this model, I believe Samsung Galaxy J4 2018 has four stand-out features that should prove enticing for young and upbeat mobile users.

1. Large and Brilliant Display

The Galaxy J4 sports a 5.5-inch HD 1280 x 720 pixels SuperAMOLED display, which is known for being brighter, more brilliant, and more energy efficient than IPS screens with the same resolution.

Sure, its 16:9 aspect ratio is not quite as trendy as 18:9 or 19:9 but this panel should be good enough for delivering an enjoyable photo and video viewing as well as 3G gaming experience.

2. Front-Cam with Soft LED Flash

For those who love to take selfies and groufies, this model has a 5 MegaPixel front snapper with Soft LED flash that ensures crisp and clear images even in settings where there's low to zero ambient light.

3. Decent Set of Internal Hardware for Its Price

This device runs its Samsung UI skinned Android 8.0 Oreo operating system with Quad-Core 1.4 GHz Cortex-A53 and Mali-T720 MP2 based Exynos 7570 Quad processor and has 2GB and 3GB RAM options along with 16GB and 32GB ROM, respectively.

The internal storage is also easily expandable using the dedicated microSD card slot, which means that you won't have to sacrifice the phone's Dual SIM Dual Standby capability just to get more space for your content.

While you can't expect this model to deliver the smoothest gaming and multitasking performance, given its price, it should be good enough to provide a stutter free browsing experience on social media apps and mobile web browsers.

4. Big Battery

Samsung Galaxy J4 2018 has a removable 3,000 mAh Li-Ion battery pack that - according to Samsung - delivers a whopping 20 hours of talk time and up to 80 hours of music playback!

In India, the 2GB RAM / 16GB ROM variant of the Galaxy J4 sells for 9,990 INR while the 3GB RAM / 32GB ROM version goes for 11,990 INR. Considering this, I believe the SRPs of the said variants in the Philippines will be around PHP 8,000 and PHP 9,500, respectively, if and when they arrive here in June or July 2018.
