Samsung Galaxy J6 and J8

The J series offerings are similar to the A series of releases but come with some cut corners when it comes to hardware and polycarbonate unibody construction instead of metal. The Exynos 7 series powered by J6 comes with a 5.6” HD+ Super AMOLED display with 13MP and 8MP rear and front facing cameras respectively. The J6 comes with 3GB RAM + 32GB storage and 4GB RAM + 64GB storage options with expandable memory up to 256GB via a microSD card. The phone is powered by a 3000mah battery and is priced at 13,990 and 16,490 depending on which storage and RAM variant you pick up.

The J8 is powered by a Snapdragon 450 SoC and comes with a larger 6” display. The camera unit also sees a bump over the J6 with a 16MP unit on the rear and back. Unlike the J6, the J8 comes in just one 4GB RAM + 64GB storage variant with expandable memory of up to 256GB. With a 3500 mah battery to power the device and Android O running under the hood, the device is priced at 18,990 INR.
