The new Samsung Galaxy J6 will go on sale on May 22, and may offer 2GB, 3GB, and 4GB RAM options and a 3000mAh battery.
Samsung has scheduled a launch event in Mumbai on May 21, where it is expected to launch a total of four new smartphones. These could include two under the Galaxy J series and two under the Galaxy A series of smartphones. The company has already made it official on their Twitter account that one of the Galaxy J models, the Galaxy J6, will be available in stores the very next day after its launch (May 22).
The video accompanying the tweet suggests that the Galaxy J6 will feature an 'Infinity Display', which is Samsung’s term for a display with minimal bezels and a high screen-to-body ratio. The Infinity Display was first introduced in the Samsung Galaxy S8, and has since been a staple of the company's flagship offerings like the Galaxy Note 8 and Galaxy S9. It seems now, however, that with the launch of the Galaxy J6 the trend is gradually trickling down to its mid-range phones as well.
The Samsung Galaxy J6 is said to feature a 5.6-inch HD+ AMOLED display with an unconfirmed resolution of 720x1480 pixels. It will supposedly be powered by an octa-core Exynos 7870 chip, and have RAM options of 2GB, 3GB, and 4GB with internal storage options of 32GB and 64GB. The device might include a fingerprint sensor on the back and pack a 3000mAh battery. The dual-SIM device is also said to support LTE Cat 4 connectivity and is expected to be launched with Android 8.0 Oreo running out-of-the-box.
It is still unclear if Samsung will launch only the Galaxy J6 at the event on May 21, or choose to include the other Galaxy J and the two other Galaxy A smartphones as well.
