Samsung Galaxy J4+ and Galaxy J6+ were launched in India on Saturday, just days after their global unveiling earlier this week. The highlights of the two budget smartphones are their 6-inch Infinity Displays with 18.5:9 aspect ratios. The two also sport the same battery capacity - 3,300mAh - and the same processor - Snapdragon 425 SoC - but otherwise, their specifications are quite different. The phones come with Dolby Atmos audio tech, and the company is touting Widevine L1 certification for HD video playback.
The South Korean company has also brought an Emotify feature with the smartphone, allowing users to utilise avatars on messaging apps and social media, in 22 Indian languages. "Galaxy J series is India's most popular smartphone series, making up almost a third of all smartphones sold in India. We are making the J series even more exciting by introducing many features such as Side fingerprint, Emotify, Install Apps on SD Card, Glass finish and striking new reflective colours. Galaxy J6+ and J4+ are just what today’s millennials are looking for in their smartphone – supreme style and unmatched performance," said Mohandeep Singh, Senior Vice President, Mobile Business, Samsung India.
