“Samsung is all set to upgrade the Galaxy J2 Core and Galaxy J4 core budget smartphones to Android Pie very soon”
Last year, Samsung joined the club of Android Go smartphone manufacturers with the launch of the Galaxy J2 Core. The phone is powered by Android Oreo (Go Edition) and comes with Go versions of Google’s apps. Now it appears that the company is all set to upgrade the Galaxy J2 Core to Android Pie (Go edition) in the near future. In addition, the South Korean tech giant seems to be planning to release the Android Pie update for yet another budget phone, the Galaxy J4, which also arrived last year.
Ahead of the Android Pie update’s rollout, the Samsung Galaxy J2 Core and Galaxy J4 running the latest Android version have been certified by Wi-Fi Alliance. Several variants of these devices meant for different markets have received Wi-Fi certification running Android Pie. The Galaxy J2 Core model numbers include SM-J260G/DS, SM-J260Y, SM-J260F/DS, SM-J260M/DS, SM-J260Y/DS, SM-J260F, SM-J260M, and SM-J260M. Similarly, the Galaxy J4’s model numbers include SM-J400F, SM-J400F/DS, SM-J400M/DS, SM-J400G/DS, SM-J400M, and SM-J400G.
Samsung hasn’t yet announced when exactly it will be releasing the Android Pie (Go Edition) update to the Galaxy J2 Core, and the regular Android Pie firmware for the Galaxy J4. However, since both the phones with Android Pie have been certified by Wi-Fi Alliance, we expect that these devices will be getting the new OS treatment very soon.
For those interested in buying these phones, the Galaxy J2 Core costs Rs 5,990, while the Galaxy J4 is being offered for Rs 8,750 and Rs 10,990 for its 16GB and 32GB storage variants, respectively. They are available to buy on the brand’s e-store as well as through other channels in the country.
