Galaxy J6 inches closer to launch as official support pages surface online
The Galaxy J6 was one of the many unannounced Galaxy device codenames and model numbers spotted in the leaked Galaxy Note 8 Oreo firmware earlier this year. Since then, the device has been spotted on benchmarking websites, at the Wi-Fi Alliance, and at the FCC, confirming its existence and impending launch. Now, indicating Samsung’s preparations for the launch, support pages for the Galaxy J6 have been spotted on the company’s website in India and Ukraine.
Galaxy J6 will sport an Infinity Display
The support pages don’t reveal anything about the Galaxy J6, but we already know some of the details about the device from earlier leaks and certifications. The FCC documents revealed that the Galaxy J6 would sport an Infinity Display and run Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box (which was also confirmed by the Wi-Fi Alliance certification). While we cannot take benchmark listings at face value, according to one of them, the Galaxy J6 will be powered by an Exynos 7870 chipset and 2GB of RAM.
Samsung has been working to bring the Infinity Display to mid-range and budget devices. The Galaxy A8 and A8+ launched earlier this year were the first non-flagship Galaxy smartphones to sport Infinity Displays. Samsung continued the trend by bringing the Infinity Display to the cheaper Galaxy A6 and A6+, which are also rumored to launch as the Galaxy J8 and J8+ in some markets. If that doesn’t happen, then the Galaxy J6 may be the first Galaxy J series model to boast an Infinity Display. However, given the cut-throat competition in the budget segment from Chinese OEMs, it is doubtful that an infinity Display alone will help Samsung in arresting its downslide in key markets.
