Samsung Galaxy J4 (2018) and Galaxy J6 (2018) specs leak

Samsung Galaxy J4 (2018) and Galaxy J6 (2018) specs leak
Earlier this month, we passed along a report that Samsung was bringing its "Infinity Display" to some new budget priced Galaxy J handsets this year. Since then, we have shown you a picture of the Samsung Galaxy J4 (2018) that was posted by Taiwan's NCC certification agency (see the picture at the top of this story). Unfortunately, that model will not feature the modern new look. Meanwhile, rumored specs for both the Galaxy J4 (2018) and Galaxy J6 (2018) have leaked out and were found in a fresh report that was published today.

According to the leak, the Samsung Galaxy J6 (2018) will be equipped with a 5.6-inch AMOLED screen. With the "Infinity Display," the resolution will probably be 720 x 1480, which would work out to an aspect ratio of 18.5:9. The 14nm Exynos 7870 SoC is expected to be under the hood carrying eight Cortex-A53 cores running at a clock speed of 1.6GHz. The Mali-T830 MP1 GPU is also included. There will be variants with 2GB/3GB/4GB of RAM, and 32GB or 64GB of expandable native storage. The camera combo, from back to front, weighs in at 13MP and 8MP with the selfie snapper featuring a flash. A fingerprint scanner graces the rear of the unit, which includes dual-SIM capability, a 3000mAh battery, and Android Oreo pre-installed.

The Samsung Galaxy J4 (2018) will have a standard 5.5-inch display, although it is unknown whether it will be an AMOLED or LCD panel. The 14nm Exynos 7570 chipset powers the device. Made for entry-level handsets, the chip includes four Cortex-A53 cores running at a clock speed of 1.4GB. Handling the graphics is the job of the Mali-T720 MP1 GPU. Depending on the market, the phone will offer 2GB or 3GB of RAM. On back is a 13MP camera, while a 5MP selfie snapper (with flash) is found in front. Keeping the lights on is a 3000mAh battery, and the unit will be equipped with dual-SIM slots and Android Oreo.

Both phones will include Bike mode, which turns off calls and notifications when the user is riding a bicycle. They will also feature Ultra Data Savings mode. This stops apps from running in the background except for six individual apps that the user selects. And the new models will support Turbo Speed technology to help apps open faster, and allows for a smoother multitasking experience thanks to software optimization.

Yeah, that 5.6inch 720p will look super crisp /s My tips, avoid any samsung phones that are not A, S, or Note series, their low-end rarely get update, and got really bad value for money. If you want sub-$300 phone, get Honor, Moto G, Asus M1 Pro, or Xiaomi phones instead.

Agree. Or buy a previous generation flagship. I just bought a Galaxy S7 and I couldn't be happier.

I've got a used S7 for my mother, and a Note5 for myself, for less than $100 each. So much better than the new $500 A8 2018.

The one that sucks here is you. You clearly don't know what you are talking about.

Galaxy j7 duo is quite good ( exynos 7885 clocked at 1.6ghz) Also 720p vs 1080p may not make a huge difference unless you look very closely but LCD vs super amoled will be much more apparent so that is an advantage

Not even the A series are safe from being a cash grab with the A6 having this 7870. 7870 was barely enough for HD screen in the J5'17, now they're putting it into FHD+ phones. How stupid do Samsung strategists think we are?

And all Sammy phones with the 64bit 7870 run 32bit Android. They must be kidding.
