Samsung’s Galaxy J budget/lower mid-range smartphone series continues to do well in markets like India, despite the fact that the phones themselves don’t usually compete against the likes of Xiaomi, Asus, and Honor in terms of specifications. This year, Samsung has launched the Samsung Galaxy J6, Galaxy J8, Galaxy A6, and Galaxy A6+. Earlier this year, the company also launched the upper mid-range Galaxy A8+ in India.
The Samsung Galaxy J6 Prime could come in red and grey colors in addition to the usual black color variant. It will have a bigger 6-inch display (in comparison to the Galaxy J6’s 5.6-inch display), but the display resolution will remain HD+ (1480×720). The display will be an “Infinity Display,” which means that it has a tall display aspect ratio and small bezels. SamMobile states that there is a chance the Galaxy J6 Prime will have an LCD and not an AMOLED display.
The phone will get a dual camera setup like the higher-end Galaxy J8, with 13MP and 5MP rear cameras, while the front-facing camera will be 8MP. According to SamMobile, it’s possible that the phone’s fingerprint sensor will be placed on the side of the device, which was suggested by recently leaked renders.
The Galaxy J6 Prime will have a quad-core processor clocked at 1.6GHz. SamMobile’s information suggests that the phone could be powered by something like the Qualcomm Snapdragon 425, which is a low-end SoC that is used in phones like the Xiaomi Redmi 5A.
The phone will have 3GB/4GB of RAM, paired with 32GB/64GB of storage along with a microSD card slot. It will have a 3,300mAh battery—up from the 3,000mAh battery of the Galaxy J6. Connectivity options will include a microUSB port, dual SIM slots, and LTE. In terms of software, the Galaxy J6 Prime will be powered by Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box.
The Galaxy J6 Prime’s support pages are already live on Samsung’s website, and it has also received FCC certification. Therefore, it’s probable to expect the phone to launch shortly.
