Samsung has taken the wraps off two new phones in the Galaxy J series. The Galaxy J4+ and Galaxy J6+ were unveiled today without any fanfare. Both phones share a number of key features but also have some major differences.
The Galaxy J6+ has a 6.0” HD+ screen with a 720 x 1480 resolution. It is powered by a quad-core processor clocked at 1.4GHz. Samsung didn’t mention the exact chipset but adds that it may differ with respect to markets.
Depending on the model sold in your country, the Galaxy J6+ will have 3GB or 4GB of RAM with 32GB or 64GB of storage. On the back are dual cameras – the primary camera is a 13MP f/1.9 sensor while the secondary camera is a 5MP f/2.2 sensor. An 8MP f/1.9 sensor is above the display for selfies and video calls.
The Galaxy J6+ is the first Samsung phone with a side-mounted fingerprint scanner. From the images provided, the fingerprint scanner should be easy to reach. The power button, on the other hand, might be a bit difficult since it is closer to the top. The volume buttons are on the left along with the SIM tray.
The phone has a MicroUSB port, Bluetooth 4.2, and 2.4GHz Wi-Fi for connectivity. NFC is market dependent. It runs Android 8.1 Oreo and packs a 3,300mAh battery. It is available in black, silver, and red.
The Galaxy J4+ has the same display and resolution as the Galaxy J6+. It also has the same processor but comes in 2GB RAM + 16GB and 3GB RAM + 32GB variants.
The J4+ has a single camera on its rear – a 13MP f/1.9 sensor while a 5MP f/2.2 sensor is in front. It has Bluetooth 4.2 and single band Wi-Fi. NFC availability is dependent on country. It also has a 3300mAh battery and runs Android 8.1 Oreo. Available colors are black, gold, and red.
