To speak of a Samsung Galaxy J6 2018 is to talk of a cheap Samsung, destined to be a top seller from the moment it sees the light. The success of the J family spreads throughout the world, making these devices very popular. It is well known that many bet on Samsung’s mid-range and low range compared to other proposals. Without becoming the most balanced phones or the ones that maintain the best value for money, they manage to attract all those public who want to enjoy the experience of having a terminal from the most important South Korean company in the global telephone industry .
The Samsung Galaxy J6 is official, it is here to stay, and it has a lot to offer us. Perhaps more than you imagine. Today, we tell you everything about this model and its official arrival in Spain so that you are clear about whether or not it is the candidate or not to be your new travel companion.
Samsung Galaxy J6, all the information
Design and display
The Samsung Galaxy J6 stands out mainly for its screen, of a quality that we are not used to in this range. Samsung ensures a panel of the highest quality, with vivid and striking colors. Specifically, we have a 5.6-inch Super AMOLED panel with HD+ resolution in widescreen format. We could indeed ask for FHD + at this point, but remember that the battery and performance decrease if the resolution is increased in this range.
On the other hand, we have a beautiful and straightforward terminal on an aesthetic level. No glass or extremely premium finishes, the Samsung Galaxy J6 aims to be comfortable in hand, with a fingerprint reader on its back and a reasonably compact size – it barely reaches 15 cm in height and weighs less than 155 grams –.
The design is the main strong point of the Galaxy J6, something to be thankful for considering the phone’s price.
Its chassis is made of aluminum and polycarbonate, and perhaps the most notable aspect is the “Infinity Display” panel that leads its front. Yes, we do not have an edge on the sides of futuristic lines on this occasion. However, the margins surrounding the screen have been significantly reduced compared to previous generations of the Galaxy J series.
It is time to travel inside the terminal, and we find an eight-core Exynos processor that runs at a maximum frequency of 1.6 GHz. The Galaxy J6 also incorporates 3 GB of RMAM memory and 32 GB of internal storage expandable through microSD up to 256 GB.
Another aspect to highlight is its battery. Despite having a capacity of 3,000 mAh, quite standard in these times, its reduced screen resolution and the efficiency of its processor ensure a more than correct duration.
Photography and media
usually one of the weak points of Samsung’s more affordable models. On the other hand, something that makes sense considering what type of public these types of terminals is intended for.
With the Galaxy J6, Samsung tries to make a notable qualitative leap, not at a technical level, where we find a single 13-megapixel rear sensor without too many pretensions, but in terms of software, thanks to the included functions.
The Galaxy J6’s rear and front cameras can capture images with a background blur effect.
The first thing we find is the possibility of taking pictures with a background blur effect –portrait mode–, both with the 8-megapixel front camera and the rear one, as well as stickers in augmented reality, and a series of aesthetic filters with which to improve the appearance of the captures in real-time. Also noteworthy is the inclusion of an LED flash with three different intensities on the front, thanks to which it will be possible to illuminate night selfies.
Among other details of the multimedia section, it is worth noting that the Samsung Galaxy J6 includes a 3.5-millimeter headphone port.

Samsung Galaxy J6: availability and where to buy at the best price
The Samsung Galaxy J6 is available in Spain for 249 euros, although you can already get it for much less on Amazon or eBay.
Once again, Samsung will conquer the low range with its J range. During the past year, the Galaxy J5 was the best-selling mobile in Spain, so they shouldn’t have it too difficult to turn this little guy into a sales success. Time will always tell, although it is clear that the South Korean giant continues to bet on this range.
