The Wi-Fi Alliance has certified the SM-J400F/DS variant of the Galaxy J4 (2018) running on the Android 9.0 Pie operating system. While we do not expect Samsung to push the stable Android Pie update for the smartphone very soon, the certification suggests the update will begin rolling out as per schedule.
Samsung Galaxy J4 (2018) Expected to Get a Slice of Pie in April
The latest revision of Samsung’s Android Pie upgrade roadmap confirmed that the stable Android 9.0 Pie update for the Galaxy J4 (2018) will begin rolling out in the month of April. Since the smartphone has now been certified by the Wi-Fi Alliance running Android Pie, we can be completely sure that owners of the Galaxy J4 (2018) will get the Pie update in April. Along with the Galaxy J4 (2018), Samsung will be rolling out the Pie update to the Galaxy J4+ as well in the same month. In addition to the usual Android Pie goodies, the update is also expected to bring a refreshed UI design.
Samsung Galaxy J4 (2018) was launched in May last year with the Android 8.0 Oreo operating system out of the box. Since it is a budget device, we are not very hopeful of it getting an update to Android 10. The Android 9.0 update will possibly be the last major OS update for the smartphone. Samsung Galaxy J4 (2018) comes with a 5.5-inch Super AMOLED display featuring 720 x 1280 HD resolution and a traditional 16:9 aspect ratio. The smartphone packs an Exynos 7570 quad-core 14nm processor with a Mali-T720 MP2 GPU and 2GB of RAM. As for storage, the handset includes 16GB of built-in storage and a dedicated microSD card slot for further expansion. It has a 13MP rear camera with an f/1.9 aperture and a 5MP selfie snapper with an f/2.2 aperture. The smartphone is fueled by a removable 3000mAh capacity battery.
