South Korean giant Samsung is hosting an event to launch a couple of new phones for the Indian market on May 22. This information has been revealed by official sources and the phones can be purchased from the very next day. These new devices are likely to be the Samsung Galaxy J6 and possibly one more. Separately there are rumours doing the rounds that the company may also launch two more devices - the Samsung Galaxy A6 and A6+, though there is no official confirmation on this.
As reported already in these columns, Samsung is enhancing the levels of the mid-segment phones also by bringing the Infinity Display feature to them from the flagship smartphones in the Galaxy series.
Accordingly, the Samsung Galaxy J6 is likely to sport a HD+ Infinity AMOLED display and the screen size is expected to be 5.8 inches and the screen resolution 720x1480pixels. The Exynos 7870 SoC will be the CPU and the phones will be released in three RAM variants, 2GB, 3GB and 4GB. There will be two options as far as the internal storage is concerned as well; 32GB and 64GB.
The battery on the Samsung Galaxy J6 will be of 3000mAh and the camera setup will see a 13MP rear sensor and an 8MP front selfie camera. S bike mode and Ultra Data save are two features being highlighted on these phones apart from the Infinity Display.
Samsung has already been tweeting an image of the bezel-free display phone on its Twitter handle and the invite to the launch event in Mumbai on May 21 also has the mention of this feature.
The above are the specifications projected for the Galaxy J6 model. There is a distant possibility that the company may also introduce three more models, the Samsung Galaxy A6, A6+ and J4. But one has to wait till May 21 to know if these rumours are true.
On the pricing front, the expectations are that the J series phones may cost in the Rs 15,000 to Rs 20,000 range, while the A series if launched, could be higher by another Rs 5,000.
