Galaxy J6 and Galaxy A6+ pricing, retail boxes leak ahead of Indian launch

It's not often that Samsung launches new smartphones from two different lineups at the same event, but the company looks set to break tradition this time around, at least in India. Samsung had earlier sent out invites for a May 21st event in the country for a new device with an Infinity Display, and it looks like it will be unveiling both the Galaxy J6 and the Galaxy A6+, retail boxes and pricing for which have been leaked today. The Galaxy A6 may also be part of the launch, as it received the May security update yesterday despite not being official in India yet, though there's no word on pricing for that particular device.

Galaxy J6 and Galaxy A6+ launch in India on May 21st

The Galaxy J6 price in India will start at Rs. 12,990 ($190) for the 3GB RAM variant; the 4GB variant will reportedly cost Rs. 15,990 ($235). The Galaxy J6 retail box shows a slightly higher maximum retail price (MRP) of Rs. 14,990, and if the box is for the base variant, then the market price of Rs. 12,990 would make sense. Meanwhile, the Galaxy A6+' MRP is Rs. 28,000, so it can be expected to go on sale for around Rs. 2,000 less. It would still be high considering the competition in the segment Samsung is targeting, although features like the 24-megapixel front camera, Dolby Atmos, Samsung Pay, and, of course, the Infinity Display should entice plenty of customers.

Thanks to Samsung's website, we also know the Galaxy J6 will go on sale the day after it is announced. The Galaxy A6+ release date shouldn't be too far, and it could go on sale the very next day like the Galaxy J6. Nothing is confirmed, though, so we will have to wait until Monday to get the official nitty gritties on availability and pricing.
