Galaxy J4 gets Bluetooth certification as the ‘2018 Galaxy J4’

The Galaxy J4 is expected to be unveiled alongside the Galaxy J6 sometime later this year as one of the many new devices Samsung is preparing to unleash in the market. Both phones were given Wi-Fi certification earlier this month, signalling their progress on the path to an official launch. The Bluetooth SIG certified the Galaxy J6 as well in early April, and the Galaxy J4 has now crossed the same hurdle. The Galaxy J4’s Bluetooth certification has its name listed as 2018 Galaxy J4, which suggests Samsung is going to be putting the current year in the names of these new devices from the very beginning, as opposed to doing so with their second iterations as it has done in the past.

Galaxy J4 gets Bluetooth certification

It doesn’t mean Samsung will actually sell them as the Galaxy J4 (2018) or the Galaxy J6 (2018), but the year will probably be mentioned on the product boxes, which is also the case with the recently launched Galaxy J7 Duo (read our hands-on experience here). Then, when the successors to these smartphones arrive, it will probably be back to how it is right now, so we’ll have the Galaxy J4 (2019), the Galaxy A6 (2019), and so on.

Unfortunately, while we can speculate all we want about how Samsung will be naming its next wave of smartphones that expand the ever-growing Galaxy lineup, we can’t say what specs these devices will carry. All we know about the Galaxy J4 is that it will have the quad-core Exynos 7570 SoC, 2GB of RAM, Bluetooth 4.2, and Android 8.0 Oreo. The screen size is expected to be 5.5 inches, but the screen resolution or specs like the camera and battery are not known at this point in time.

But that might change soon, as the Galaxy J4 and Galaxy J6 have now been cleared by the Wi-Fi Alliance, Bluetooth SIG, and the FCC, so an official launch could be just around the corner. Or, at the very least, these phones could soon pop up on benchmark databases that give us more info than we have on them right now.
