Last year, Samsung introduced the new Infinity display with Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus smartphones. These smartphones came with 18.5:9 aspect ratio and feature minimal bezels on the top and bottom. With very little space below the display, the company also opted for the pressure sensitive virtual home button instead of the physical home button. In December 2017, Samsung also introduced the Infitiy display in the Galaxy A-series by launching the Galaxy A8 (2018) & Galaxy A8+ (2018) smartphones.
Now in 2018, the company seems to expand the Infinity display usage to the affordable Galaxy J-series. The screenshots included in the FCC listing of the smartphone with the model number SM-J600F reveals the on-screen navigation buttons as seen on the other Infinity display smartphones. It is expected to be soon launched as Samsung Galaxy J6 (2018) in the market. However, we are yet to get the first look of this device.
The device is said to measures 146.3 mm in length and 67.0 mm in breadth. Though there is no information about the exact screen size, the diagonal length of the display is mentioned as 142. 8 mm (5.6-inches). It comes with a non-removable battery and supports dual SIM dual standby 2.4GHz Wi-Fi. The device will be offering fingerprint sensor and face unlock for authenticating the device. It also comes with Samsung Pay support for making mobile payments.
It features a 3.5mm audio jack and a MicroUSB 2.0 port. The device lacks fast charging support and only supports up to 5V/1A power input. Last month, the same SM-J600F smartphone was spotted on Geekbench. The listing mentioned the device to run on Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box. Under the hood, it comes powered by 1.59GHz Exynos 7870 octa-core processor coupled with Mali-T830 GPU and 3GB RAM. Stay tuned on PhoneRadar for more details!
