Samsung Galaxy J6 release date and price
The Galaxy J6 UK release date has been set for “this summer” and it will launch with selected partners. However, who these partners are and how late into the summer we can expect the phone is not yet known.
There’s no price attached to the device either, but going by previous J-line releases, it should cost around £200.
Samsung Galaxy J6 display and design
The Samsung Galaxy J6 has a 5.6in Super AMOLED full-front display, making it look somewhat premium. There are minimal bezels on the sides and the screen fills a good proportion of the phone’s front. The resolution isn’t fantastic, however, at 720 x 1,480.
