The upcoming Samsung Galaxy J6 recently paid a visit to the FCC where the device was unsurprisingly identified by the already-familiar model number “SM-J600F,” and although the FCC documents haven’t revealed many details surrounding the smartphone’s hardware characteristics, one document, in particular, appears to have indirectly confirmed that the device will be equipped with an elongated Infinity Display. Specifically, the application contains information regarding the FCC e-label and how it can be accessed from the phone’s settings menu, complete with a handful of screenshots revealing on-screen navigation buttons and an aspect ratio taller than 16:9.
Although the FCC documents don’t spell the Samsung Galaxy J6’s screen characteristics outright, the three screenshots included in the FCC e-label documents confirm the “SM-J600F” model number and suggest that the device will have an Infinity Display, presumably rocking an 18:5:9 image format. Furthermore, the screenshots reveal on-screen navigation buttons at the bottom of the screen, indicating that the Samsung Galaxy J6 may have abandoned the front-facing physical keys in favor of an elongated design. Additionally, judging by the screenshots the device should feature face recognition and fingerprint-based biometric authentication solutions, and once again given the presence of software navigation buttons, it seems that the smartphone might carry its fingerprint sensor on the back panel.
The Samsung Galaxy J6 is expected to become a new member of the OEM’s J-branded smartphone lineup alongside the Galaxy J3, J4, and the Galaxy J8, and according to preliminary benchmark results, all of these smartphone models should fit in the mid-range market segment with varying specifications. Case in point, a previous Geekbench listing pertaining to the Samsung Galaxy J6 hints that the device should rock an Exynos 7870 chipset featuring eight ARM Cortex-A53 CPU cores operating at a frequency of up to 1.6GHz, 2GB of RAM, and an ARM Mali-T830 graphics processor. Software-wise the unit should rely on Android Oreo though it’s evident from the screenshots that the OS will be largely covered by the OEM’s proprietary Samsung Experience firmware. It remains to be seen when the Korean tech giant might plan on launching the Galaxy J6 to the market, having already introduced the Galaxy J2 Pro (2018) in Vietnam as well as its homeland.
