Budget yet powerful Infinity Display phones!
Recently last week Samsung announced two of its phones for the budget/mid-range section. Galaxy J6 and J8 are them. Both comes with a beautiful sAMOLED Infinity Display. There is also Face Unlock given as addition to the fingerprint sensor. It will give direct competition to Redmi Note 5 Pro which is currently the best selling mid-ranger as of now.
Under the hood, Galaxy J6 has Exynos 7 series (7870 Octa) processor whereas J8 sports Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 450. There are two RAM:storage variants of J6 3GB + 32GB being the lower one and 4GB + 64GB the higher option. The J8 has only the 4GB + 64GB variant. There is a dedicated micro SD card where you can put micro SD up to 256GB.
Both Galaxy J6 and J8 sports a HD+ sAMOLED display. The display on J6 is 5.6-inch (14.25cm) whereas J8 has slightly taller at 6-inch (15.36cm). There is no word on the protection used however we think there might be some kind of scratch resistant coating over the display.
For the back camera, J6 has a single 13MP (f/1.9 aperture) shooter and a 8MP (f/1.9 aperture) selfie-snapper. Whereas J8 has dual camera to the back with 16MP being the primary lens with an f/1.7 aperture and 5MP as the secondary lens with an f/1.9 aperture. There is a 16MP (f/1.9 aperture) selfie-snapper on the front.
Both phones come with LED flash on the back as well as on the front. In our opinion, the Galaxy J8 will perform better in low light because of the wider aperture.
Both phones support Face Unlock.
Both J6 and J8 adopts its front Infinity Display design from the most superior Galaxy S9. The dual camera on J8 and fingerprint placement on the back of both phones are also adopted from S9. Galaxy A8+, A6 and A6+ were also the phones with Infinity Display.
