South Korean tech giant Samsung at an event in Mumbai today launched the Galaxy A6 and Galaxy A6+ smartphones in India. Both these smartphones were announced earlier this month. However, alongside launching the Galaxy A6 and Galaxy A6+ smartphones in India, Samsung also launched the Galaxy J6 and Galaxy J8 smartphones in the country.

Unlike the Galaxy A6 and A6+, the Samsung Galaxy J6 features polycarbonate uni-body construction. However, just like the A6 series smartphones launched today, the Galaxy J6 also features Samsung’s Infinity Display. The J6 features a 5.6-inch Super AMOLED Infinity Display that has an aspect ratio of 18.5:9 and a resolution of 1480 x 720 pixels.

The Samsung Galaxy J6 is powered by Exynos 7 Series octa-core processor which is coupled with 3 or 4 GB RAM. The 3 GB RAM variant comes with 32 GB of storage on board whereas the 4 GB RAM variant comes with 64 GB of storage. However, you do have an option of expanding the storage up to 256 GB via microSD card.

As far as optics are concerned, the Galaxy J6 sports a 13 MP camera at the back and an 8 MP camera on the front – both of which have f/1.9 aperture. The Galaxy J6 runs Android Oreo out-of-the-box and comes packed with a 3000 mAh battery that keeps the lights on.

The Samsung Galaxy J8 comes with better specifications as compared to the Galaxy J6. It sports a 6-inch Super AMOLED Infinity Display, however, the resolution remains the same as that of the J6.

The Galaxy J8, unlike the J6, is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 450 octa-core processor which is mated to 4 GB RAM. The smartphone boots up to Android Oreo and has 64 GB of storage on board.

For photography, the Samsung Galaxy J8 has dual camera setup at the back which consists of one 16 MP snapper and one 5 MP snapper. The 16 MP snapper has f/1.7 aperture whereas the 5 MP snapper has f/1.9 aperture. Having said that, for selfies and video calls, the Galaxy J8 has a 16 MP single camera on the front with f/1.9 aperture.

Lastly, to keep the package up and running, the Samsung Galaxy J8 ships with a 3500 mAh batter.

The Samsung Galaxy J6 and Galaxy J8 also comes with Samsung Mall along with a feature called “Chat-over-Video” that allow users to “chat through a transparent chat window and keyboard, while a video is still running.”
