Nearly two months ago, SamMobile reported about an upcoming smartphone in Galaxy J-series. The same phone is now seemingly inching closer to launch. The phone in question is the Galaxy J6 Prime, which gained the required FCC certification, last week. Additionally, we also recently reported about the support page of this handset going live on Samsung’s India website, hinting at the imminent launch. In the latest development concerning the J6 Prime, it has now received Wi-Fi certification. The WFA Alliance document for the phone mentions the same model number SM-J610F, which also appeared on the support page and FCC certificates.
According to the latest certification, we can see that the Galaxy J6 Prime will run Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box. The phone will support Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n connectivity with 2.4GHz and 5GHz frequency. Other specifications of the device include Infinity Display with an 18:9 aspect ratio. On the hardware front, the phone will come powered by a Snapdragon 450 processor clubbed with Adreno 506 GPU. In terms of imaging, the phone will most likely pack dual rear-facing camera. We do not know the exact camera specs as of now.
Some of the reports about the handset have hinted that Samsung might launch it in Vietnam and Netherlands ahead of other regions such as India. Keeping in mind that the support page for the J6 Prime had already gone live on Samsung’s India website, we can expect the phone to go official soon after Vietnam and Netherlands. Going further, Samsung may launch the phone in select European countries.
As we mentioned in the beginning, the Samsung Galaxy J6 Prime has acquired FCC and WFA certificates. This means that the phone should be made official soon. Besides, the support page on Samsung’s India website also hints at the imminent launch. Other than all these hints, the company is yet to make an official regarding the J6 Prime. We will be keeping an eye on the development concerning the smartphone and bring the latest news to you.
