Samsung Galaxy J4, the company’s latest budget smartphone, is claimed to have silently been launched in India. According to information obtained from an established Mumbai-based mobile retailer, the Galaxy J4 is now in India at a price of Rs. 9,990 for the 2GB RAM/ 16GB inbuilt storage variant. Notably, the smartphone does not sport an Infinity Display with a 18.5:9 aspect ratio, unlike the recently launched Galaxy J6 and Galaxy A6 series in India. However, it comes with Android Oreo, a Super AMOLED display, and an LED selfie flash.
As we mentioned, Mumbai-based retailer Mahesh Telecom on Thursday took to Twitter to reveal that the Samsung Galaxy J4 is now available in India. According to the retail box, this phone is part of Samsung’s “Make for India” initiative, and its specifications match with the variant spotted last week in Pakistan and Ukraine. We’ve reached out to Samsung for confirmation of the India launch, and we’ll update this space when we hear back.
