Samsung is expected to announce the Galaxy A6 and the Galaxy J6 at an event in India next week. However, the phone was spotted in Geekbench’s database as well as in Wi-Fi Alliance certification documents. A few days ago, the design of the phone was leaked, thanks to hands-on images as well as FCC certification documents. The leaked images showed off a rear-mounted fingerprint reader, a single rear-facing camera, and a minimal-bezel screen. Now, we’ve spotted a new variant of the Galaxy J6. Let’s have a look at the specifications of the upcoming smartphone.
Samsung Galaxy J6 (SM-J600G): Exynos 7870, 3GB RAM
The Samsung Galaxy J6 (SM-J600G) which we’ve spotted in Geekbench’s database features an Exynos 7870 processor, 3GB of RAM, and it runs Android 8.0 Oreo. The variant of the Galaxy J6 (SM-J600F) which was leaked earlier had 2GB RAM. This means that the Galaxy J6 will be launched in at least two variants: 2GB RAM and 3GB RAM. As per the images of the phone that were leaked earlier, it appears that it is the first time that a Galaxy J series smartphone from Samsung is getting an 18:9 and minimal bezel screen.
Going by previous leaks, the Galaxy J6 will feature a 5.6-inch Super AMOLED screen, an Exynos 7870 octa-core processor, 2GB/3GB/4GB of RAM, 64GB of internal storage, and a microSD card slot. There will be a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera and an 8-megapixel front-facing camera, both featuring LED flash. The phone will run Android 8.0 Oreo with Samsung Experience 9.0 user interface. The phone reportedly features a dual-SIM card slot with LTE connectivity, a rear-mounted fingerprint reader, and a 3000mAh battery. The phone will also come with Dolby Atmos audio for a more immersive experience.
Samsung Galaxy J6: India Price, Launch Date
The Galaxy J6 will be launched in India on May 22, and the sale starts on the same day, as mentioned on Samsung India’s website.
