The video reveals the smartphone will sport an infinity display, the first on a J-series. The bezel-less display sports sharp corners and not the rounded ones like the Galaxy A8 and will somewhat be less elegant or sharp like the ones in the S-series and A-series. It will sport a plastic body with a rectangular fingerprint sensor in the rear.
The Galaxy J6 appeared in GeekBench with model number SM-J600F two months ago where it reveals the specs. It will feature a 5.6 inch AMOLED infinity Display with a resolution of HD+ (1480 x 720 pixels). It will be powered by an Octa-core Exynos 7870 chipset coupled with 2GB, 3GB, and 4GB RAM. In the optics department, the device will sport a 13 MP camera in the rear while offering an 8 MP on the front. Among other features, a fingerprint sensor, LTE CaT.5, dual SIM, Samsung Experience 9.0 with Android 8.0 Oreo and a 3,000 mAh battery will be included. Additional features include S bike mode and Ultra data saving features.
It’s not clear whether the company will also be launching the A-series or other J-series phone. Rumors point to a Galaxy A6, Galaxy A6+ and Galaxy J4 launch on May 21 where they will be priced between Rs 20,000-Rs 25,000. As, for the Galaxy J6, the smartphone is speculated to be priced at 208$ (Rs 14,000) and Rs 245$ (Rs 16,500) for the 3 GB RAM and the 4GB RAM variants respectively.
