An event has been scheduled in Mumbai to launch the new smartphone that will go on sale on May 22.

For the last three quarters, Samsung's smartphone shipments have come down drastically owing to Xiaomi's popular Redmi series phones and now, the tech giant is planning to bring a feature-rich Galaxy J6 with the iconic design language of the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S9 series and hopes it would reinvigorate the mobile sales in the country. The Galaxy A-series is likely to be priced between Rs 20,000 and Rs 25,000 whereas the J series phone will mostly likely be place between the range of Rs 15,000 to Rs 20,000.

Samsung is also planning to launch Galaxy J4 with a 5.5-inch HD display, Exynos 7570 processor, 2GB/3GB RAM, 13MP rear camera coupled with a 5MP camera. "It's coming to take you #ToInfinityAndMore". The media invite sent out by the brand revealed a silhouette of a smartphone with Infinity display and read "Say Hello To Infinity & More".

According to the leaked specifications, Galaxy J6 will have a 5.6-inches display with an HD+ resolution (720p) which will be 1480×720 pixels.

Still, if the J6 proves too costly, theres always its smaller sibling – the Galaxy J4 (2018). Despite running the modern Android 8.0 Oreo OS, this thing packs a pretty bad 2GB RAM and an outdated Exynos 7870 processor, which probably means the so-called J7 Aero won't be similar to the India-exclusive J7 Duo after all. Galaxy J6 will have a 2GB, 3GB and 4GB RAM options, along with 32GB and 64GB storage, which will be expandable.

"Following a limited number of cases where Galaxy S7 devices have rebooted unexpectedly with the Android 8.0 Oreo, we have temporarily stopped the rollout of the update".

On the camera front, the device is enabled with a 13-megapixel sensor at the back followed by an 8-megapixel front-facing snapper.

Budget Samsung features such as S bike mode and Ultra Data Savings are also likely to make a comeback.
