We knew that Samsung is working on a Prime version of its Galaxy J6 smartphone, and that it’s nearing release and today, we can put a face on the rumors, thanks to renders based on factory CAD data and recent leaks.
The renders show a device that has changed from its namesake, which was announced earlier this year. For starters the Galaxy J6 Prime (likely to be announced under the Plus name in some markets) has a dual camera on the back, where the Galaxy J6 has a single one.
Another notable change is the missing rear fingerprint scanner. According to the source, the fingerprint scanner may have moved inside the power button on the side.
The screen is also different, showing notably slimmer side bezels. It’s expected to be a 6.0-inch 720x1520px Super AMOLED, up from the 5.6-inch Super AMOLED on the Galaxy J6.
Given Samsung’s earlier practices, we expect the Galaxy J6 Prime to use a Snapdragon 450 chip instead of the Samsung-designed Exynos 7870. RAM will likely remain the same, meaning there will be 3GB/32GB and 4GB/64GB models.
There’s no official word on when Samsung will unveil the Galaxy J6 Prime (or Plus), but given the phone’s recent Bluetooth certification, we expect it to be soon.
