Samsung has failed to deliver up to the expectation in recent times. The arrival of other Chinese smartphone brands has made the mid-range smartphones more budget-friendly and features packed. The design of smartphones has been one of the most sensitive issues and has become a dealbreaker for most of the people these days. Samsung recently launched its budget line-up, the Galaxy J7 Duo and it failed. The device had the same old screen and body design with the traditional 16:9 aspect ratio. In order to retain the users’ favor, Samsung is planning to launch its latest midrange smartphone the Galaxy J6 2018 with 18:9 aspect ratio Infinity Display.
The J6 2018 features the Exynos 7870 which was released back in 2016. The device has two variants, 3GB RAM, 32GB internal storage or 4GB RAM, 64GB internal storage. The storage can be expanded up to 256GB using the dedicated microSD card slot. The Facial Recognition and Dolby Atmos are the highlighted feature of this device.
The rear camera is a 13 MP sensor with f/1.9 aperture ( LED flash, HDR, Touch focus, Face detection). It can record 1080p@30fps. For selfie, the J6 is equipped with an 8 MP sensor with f/1.9 aperture and a LED flash for good selfies during low lighting conditions. The device runs on Android Oreo 8.0. It houses a 3000 mAh Li-Ion non-removable battery.
The Galaxy J6 is Priced at Rs. 24790 for the base variant(3GB/32GB) and Rs. 29,090 for the 4GB/64GB variant.
