Samsung Galaxy J6 (SM-J600F) and Galaxy A6+ (SM-A605FN) have officially received the Bluetooth certification.
The models are close to their launch date as the A6 Plus was previously spotted in FCC and Wi-Fi Alliance listing.
Galaxy A6 Plus was previously spotted in GeekBench results which confirmed the specifications of the model including the processor used in it. The phone was identified with the model number SM-A605FN and it was surprising to know that Samsung has decided to use a Snapdragon 625 processor in it instead of the Exynos chipset they often go with.
Galaxy A6 Plus May Launch First
Samsung Galaxy J6 was also certified today along with the A6 Plus in the Bluetooth certification website. As the A6+ was already certified on multiple websites including the FCC, Wi-Fi Alliance and Bluetooth, it is expected that Samsung will launch the model first. The J6 is yet to acquire certification from FCC or WFA and has appeared only in GeekBench results so far which indicates that its launch date could be delayed.
Galaxy A6 Plus Hardware Specifications
GeekBench results are usually limited in terms of revealing hardware specifications. The available resources confirm that the phone will use a Super AMOLED Infinity Display powered by Snapdragon 625, 4GB of RAM and the base variant will have 32GB of storage space while a 64GB variant will also be available. The phone runs on Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box but will get upgraded to Android P later.
Galaxy J6 Hardware Specifications
The Samsung Galaxy J6 has the model number SM-J600F. Being a budget device, it uses an older processor, the 1.6GHz octa-core Exynos 7870 with 2GB of RAM while another variant with 3GB of RAM will also be available at launch. The budget-friendly Galaxy J6 is expected to be a strong performer as it earned a score of 3,643 in multi-core test and 726 in single-core GeekBench tests.
The Galaxy A6 Plus is expected to be officially announced soon while the Galaxy J6 may take time and it is also expected to get launched with another J-series variant, the Samsung Galaxy J8 2018 edition with better hardware specifications.
