Like a younger sibling, the Galaxy A series has been getting hand-me-downs from the S series, things like the Infinity Display. Now the junior J series is getting some too – the FCC published its report on the Samsung Galaxy J6, including a few screenshots.
These screenshots clearly show an 18.5:9 screen, the mark of an Infinity Display. Naturally, on-screen controls have taken over from the retired hardware keys. This probably means a fingerprint reader on the back as well. Unfortunately, the FCC wasn’t kind enough to publish schematics.
It did publish the dimensions – the phone itself measures 146.3 x 67.0 mm and the screen has a diagonal of 5.6”. This is a dual-SIM phone (as evident from the screenshots).
Digging a little deeper, the list of supplied accessories reveals a standard 1 amp charger, a microUSB cable (boo) and a regular 3.5mm headset (yay). From Geekbench, we know the J6 will use an Exynos 7870 chipset with 2 GB of RAM and will run Android 8.0 Oreo.
At any rate, it’s worth pointing out that there hasn’t been a Galaxy J6 yet – J5 and J7 sure, but no J6. The model number SM-J600F strongly hints at the Galaxy J6 name, though doesn’t guarantee it. The Galaxy A8 (2018) is the A530 while the Plus model is A730.
