Upcoming Samsung Galaxy J4 pops up in a benchmark

While everyone is looking forward to the grand unveiling of the Galaxy S9 and S9+ at MWC next week, Samsung is also busy working on other, lower-end smartphones. One such model is the upcoming Galaxy J4, which may launch under the J4 (2018) moniker.

It bears the model number SM-J400, and its existence has been revealed by the Geekbench database. The benchmark run that a prototype was put through helpfully tells us a couple of things about the phone.

It's powered by the Exynos 7570 chipset, an entry-level part announced in 2016. It is built on the 14nm process, making it quite power efficient, and comes with four Cortex-A53The ARM Cortex-A53 processor offers a balance between performance and power-efficiency. Cortex-A53 is capable of seamlessly supporting 32-bit and 64-bit instruction sets. It makes use of a highly efficient 8-stage in-order pipeline enhanced with advanced fetch and data access techniques for performance. It fits in a power and area footprint suitable for entry-level smartphones. It also can deliver high aggregate performance in scalable enterprise systems via high core density, which accounts for its popularity in basestation and networking designs. cores, clocked at up to 1.43 GHz in the J4. Given what the SoC supports, screen resolution will be 720p tops.

The handset is endowed with 2GB of RAMRandom Access Memory (RAM) is the place in a computer where the operating system, application programs, and data in current use are kept so that they can be quickly reached by the computers processor., and it runs Android 8.0 Oreo already - which hopefully means it will launch with that OS version on board. Thus it will probably end up being among the first lower-end Samsung phones to ship with Oreo. Other specs aren't out yet, but we'll let you know when we find out more.
