After Samsung announced a price cut for the Galaxy A6 smartphone last month, the company has now slashed the pricing of its Galaxy J6 4GB RAM model and is now available for purchase at Rs. 15,990, which roughly converts to $233. However, the price cut is not a major one as the 4GB RAM model was earlier available for Rs. 16,490 (approximately $240).
The Samsung Galaxy J6 was launched in India in May for a starting price of Rs. 13,990. Online retailer Flipkart will be offering cashback of Rs.1,500 when the user pays with an ICICI Bank credit or debit card, bringing the effective price down to Rs.14,490 (approximately $211).
The smartphone features a 5.6-inch HD+ Super AMOLED Infinity Display with screen resolution of 1480 x 720 pixels and 18.5:9 aspect ratio along with a 2.5D curved glass on top. Under the hood, the device is powered by the company’s own Exynos 7870 octa-core14nm chipset, coupled with Mali T830 GPU.
It comes in two models based on the memory configuration — 3GB RAM and 32GB internal storage and 4GB RAM with 64GB internal storage. There’s a microSD card slot, which enables users to further expand the phone’s storage capacity up to 256GB.
The Galaxy J6 comes with a 13-megapixel rear camera and an 8-megapixel front camera, both having LED flash for brighter photos during low-light scenarios. Connectivity options on the device include 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.2 LE, and GPS. On the back panel, just below the camera module, there’s a fingerprint sensor for added security.
Connectivity features include Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.2 Low Energy, GPS with A-GPS, GLONASS, BeiDou, FM radio, and 4G VoLTE. It also has support for Face Unlock feature. Running on Android 8.0 Oreo operating system out of the box with Samsung Experience custom interface on top, the smartphone is powered by a 3,000mAh battery.
