The first thing you should know about Samsung Galaxy J4 is that, currently, it is not available in any store that sells smartphones.
In other words, the Samsung Galaxy J4 exists only in the world of dreams and fantasies. Samsung has not released Samsung Galaxy J4 at any time in the past or in the present. And by the looks of it, the company won’t be releasing Samsung Galaxy J4 anytime soon either.
But that doesn’t mean that there won’t be a Samsung Galaxy J4 ever. Samsung may be thinking about introducing a new Galaxy smartphone and there is a chance, the new smartphone from Samsung might be dubbed as Samsung Galaxy J4.
For the uninitiated, Samsung is a South Korean electronics giant and it manufactures a ton of smartphones. So if you can’t fight off the urge to buy an affordable Samsung Galaxy smartphone then the company can offer you a lot more than just a Samsung Galaxy J4 that doesn’t exist.
In fact, the Galaxy J series isn’t even the only series that Samsung offers to its potential customers.
Samsung also offers the A series and the S series which are superior to the J series in every sense of the word. But that superiority comes at a price. The Samsung A and S series are a lot more expensive than the J series.
For some reason, when people think about the J series, they also think about the Samsung Galaxy J4.
Just to recap, the Galaxy J series has a total of six phones as of 2016. Those six J series phones are as follows,
- J7 2016
Looking at that list, it should be clear to you now that there is no Samsung Galaxy J4. In fact, there is no J6 either. Samsung might decide to make use of Samsung Galaxy J4 and Samsung Galaxy J6 sometime in the future but we won’t know for sure until Samsung actually does so.
However, you don’t need to get discouraged just because there is no Samsung Galaxy J4. Have a look at the specifications and features of other smartphones that have been manufactured by the company for its J series.
Samsung Galaxy J1
The J1 phone from Samsung has an interesting story. Samsung has released at least four iterations of the phone. The J1 has become a series within itself to be honest.
Right now you can buy the Galaxy J1 in four flavors. There is the J1 Mini, the Ace, the J1 4G and the regular J1.
The latest edition of Galaxy J1 was launched in January 2016. Its physical measurements are 132.6 x 69.3 x 8.9mm which is pretty standard but nothing to gloat about.
The J1 2016 weighs in at about 131 grams.
It has a 4.5 inch super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen display. J1 offers a resolution of 480 x 800 pixels, which in all honesty is just a little bit on the lower side since most smartphone manufacturers have moved their lower-end smartphones to at least 720p resolutions.
As far as the processing power is concerned, the J1 sports a quad-core Exynos 3475 Quad chipset with a 1.3 GHz clock speed.
The J1 also comes with 1GB RAM and a storage capacity of 8GB. The J1 will allow users to expand the internal memory up to 128GB via a micro-SD card.
The low-end smartphone from Samsung has a 5MP primary camera and a 2MP secondary one which can prove to be sufficient for selfies.
Other features include geo-tagging,touch focus and face detection.
Thanks to its 2050 mAh battery, the Galaxy J1 has a talk time that can reach 12 hours.
You can get yourself a Galaxy J1 either in White, Black, or Gold.
Samsung Galaxy J1 Mini
The Samsung Galaxy J1 Mini has a 4-inch screen that sports a resolution of 480 x 800 pixels. It features a quad-core processor with a 1.2 GHz clock speed. This smartphone comes with 786MB of RAM and an internal storage of 8GB. The storage capacity of the smartphone can be upgraded up to 128GB via a microSD card.
As far as the physical measurements are concerned, the Galaxy J1 Mini is a bit smaller than Galaxy J1 original, at 121.60 x 63.10 x 10.80 mm and weighs around 120 grams.
The J1 Mini is a dual sim smartphone and has a 5MP primary camera along with LED flash with an autofocus feature.
The front camera is a meager 0.3MP so don’t expect to impress your friends with the selfies you take from this smartphone.
As far as connectivity features go, the J1 Mini supports GPS, FM, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi. In other words, you won’t be able to use 3G or 4G mobile internet with the J1 Mini.
The J1 Mini comes with a removable battery of 1500mAh.
Samsung Galaxy J2
The Samsung Galaxy J2 was launched in September 2015 and was offered to potential customers in three different colors : White, Black, and Gold.
It has a 4.7-inch screen with a resolution of 540 x 960 pixels. It weighs 129 grams and is powered by an Exynos 3475 Quad chipset that is clocked at 3.GHz.
As with most J series smartphones, the J2 comes with a 1GB RAM and 8GB of storage capacity which can be upgraded to 128GB with the help of a micro-SD card.
The front camera is a 5MP one with features such as LED flash and autofocus.
The “selfie” camera is a 2MP one with f/2.2 aperture.
The J2 also sports features such as geo-tagging,face detection, touch focus and FM Radio.
Unlikes the upcoming Apple iPhone 7, the Samsung Galaxy J2 still has the 3.5mm headphone jack.
The J2 has a decent 2000mAh battery.
Samsung Galaxy J3
Released in November 2015, the J3 weight 138 gm and has dimensions of 142.30 x 71.00 x 7.90 mm.
Similar to the J2, the J3 comes in three colors: Gold, White, and Black.
Thankfully, the J3 has a modern 5.0-inch 720p display. The smartphone ships with a 1.5GHz quad-core processor and has a 2600 mAh non-removable battery.
It has 1.5GB of RAM and an internal storage of 8GB which can be further increased to 128 GB by installing a micro-SD card.
On the camera side, the smartphone offers a promising 8MP primary camera with LED flash and an autofocus feature.
The front camera has also been beefed up to 5MP which should allow users to take quality selfies from their J3 smartphone.
And this is where most users would think that Samsung should go for J4 as their next smartphone.
But, as mentioned before, that isn’t the case since Samsung Galaxy J4 never came out.
After Samsung Galaxy J3, Samsung skipped the J4 and moved directly to J5 and then to J7 afterward.
Samsung Galaxy J5
The 2016 edition of Samsung Galaxy J5 comes with Android Marshmallow pre-installed. The latest edition of J5 is quite big with dimensions 145.80 x 72.30 x 8.10 mm. It is slightly on the heavier side as well weighing in at 159gm.
Samsung is offering the J5 smartphone in three colors: white, gold and pink.
The smartphone has a 5.2 inch 720p display screen and a 1.2 GHz quad-core processor that is supplemented with 2GB of RAM.
Samsung has also augmented J5 with 16GB internal storage which can be increased to 128GB via a micro-SD card.
The J5 sports a 13MP camera as its primary camera and it has a LED flashlight feature as well. The secondary camera is a 5MP one that should prove to be sufficient for taking selfies.
As mentioned before, the J5 ships with Android Marshmallow and as a result of that update, the J5 is a much more secure smartphone than its predecessors.
Connectivity options include Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth, USB OTG and the standard 3.55mm headphone jack.
The J5 is a dual sim smartphone that has support for 3G and 4G connections.
These new features, though impressive, will surely reduce the lifespan of its 3100 mAh battery pack.
Samsung Galaxy J7
Samsung Galaxy J4 may never see the light of day but the one smartphone that has proven to be more popular than the J4 could have ever been, is the new J7.
The J7 was released in 2015 and then re-released in 2016.
The 2016 edition of J7 is, as expected, a slightly upgraded version of Samsung J7 2015.
The affordable yet surprisingly powerful J7 comes with a 5.5 inch 1080p (Chinese versions only) display screen and 3GB of RAM.
All other versions of J7 have a 5.5 inch 720p screen with 2GB of RAM. All versions of the J7, including the Chinese one, have 16GB of internal storage that is upgradable to 128GB with a micro-SD card.
The smartphone has a 13MP rear camera along with a 5MP front camera which should make J7 a robust smartphone for taking quality photos and videos.
The J7 relies on a powerful 1.6 GHz octa-core processor which makes running Android Marshmallow a breeze.
The 2016 model of the J7 also supports connectivity options such as Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, GPS, USB OTG, Bluetooth v 4.10, and 4G/LTE. The wide range of connectivity options should allow users to get their work done on the go, wherever they are.
The J7 has a 3100 mAh battery which should be enough to give the average user plenty of talk time.
