Samsung has announced the launch date of its new smartphone, the Galaxy J6.

Samsung has sent out invites for the launch of its Galaxy J6 in India on 21 May. One thing to keep in mind is that smartphones are sold at a slightly lower price than the MRP printed on the retail packaging, so the marketing operating price (MOP) of both the Galaxy J6 and Galaxy A6+ should be quite a bit lower.

However, it is important to note here that generally, the MRP is a bit higher than the market operational price of a smartphone.

For the last three quarters, Samsung's smartphone shipments have come down drastically owing to Xiaomi's popular Redmi series phones and now, the tech giant is planning to bring a feature-rich Galaxy J6 with the iconic design language of the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S9 series and hopes it would reinvigorate the mobile sales in the country. Though not official, the FCC certification of the J6 did reveal that the device will run on Android 8.0 Oreo with Samsung's own Experience skin on top and will equip a 3,000mA battery. Connectivity options include 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.2, GPS, 3.5mm audio jack, and a USB Type-C port. Stay tuned on PhoneRadar for more details about these upcoming Samsung smartphones! The device is expected to pack a 5.6-inch HD+ AMOLED Infinity Display with 720x1480 resolution. The Galaxy J6 (2018) cost is listed as INR 15,000 – thats around $220/€190, below the expected price of €250. Fingers crossed you'll get at least 32GB internal storage and 3GB RAM without paying a premium.

Camera-wise, the phone may sport a 13 MP rear camera and an 8 MP front camera with an LED flash.

Coming to Galaxy A6+, the smartphone has been already launched in the global market. The phone is powered by an octa-core Snapdragon 450 chipset with a maximum clock speed of 1.8GHz.
