Comments / {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}} Views / Monday, 11 June 2018 00:00

Samsung Sri Lanka recently launched the Galaxy J6, J7 Duo & J4 smartphones.  The mobile industry will witness a paradigm shift in the design of smartphones with the introduction of Samsung’s signature Infinity Design philosophy to the J Series.

The Infinity Design on the Galaxy J6 gives users nearly 15% more display area without increasing the overall size of the device. This is due to extremely thin bezels and the swapping of the physical home button with the software powered in-display home button. The fingerprint sensor was moved to the back of the device for added convenience. These changes in the display hardware deliver an 18.5:9 aspect ratio that provides an end-to-end viewing experience and more browsing space. All these devices come with Samsung’s Super AMOLED display technology that produces deeper contrasts and delivers the most vivid viewing experience. The new ‘Chat over Video’ feature that facilitates an uninterrupted and uncompromised viewing experience while chatting further strengthens Samsung’s Infinity display experience.

Samsung Sri Lanka General Manager and Head of Mobile Business Shantha Fernando said: “Galaxy J6, J7 Duo & J4 are built for todays Millennial. These smart phones will set the standard for an unparalleled viewing experience with Samsung’s signature super AMOLED Display. Galaxy J7 Duo gets dual rear cameras that let users capture professional grade bokeh images and express themselves in a unique manner. Our latest innovation, Chat-over-Video allows an uninterrupted viewing experience just the way Millennials want it. We are also introducing a new youthful and vibrant blue colour that shows that we listen to our young consumers who constantly seek stylish designs.”

With Galaxy J7 Duo, the dual camera makes its debut in the J series. The rear camera in Galaxy J7 Duo has a 13MP and 5MP setup, while the front camera sports 8MP. Both cameras come with f/1.9 aperture and LED flash, making Galaxy J7 Duo an excellent smartphone for low light photography. Galaxy J7 Duo packs a punch with its superior hardware and software. It comes with an Exynos 7 series processor, 4GB RAM and 32GB memory that is expandable up to 256GB using a micro SD card. The 5.5” HD Super AMOLED display on Galaxy J7 Duo gives you the best viewing experience and the 3,000-mAh battery makes it an extremely capable phone. Galaxy J7 Duo offers the Live Focus and Background Blur Shape functions. These cool features were incoporated following an insight that Millennials are increasingly editing photos before sharing them on social media.

The Galaxy J6 will feature a widescreen Infinity Display with aspect ratio of 18.5:9. The upcoming smartphone will flaunt a 5.6-inch AMOLED screen with a HD+ Infinity Display, an octa-core Exynos 7870 SoC and will come with a dual-SIM & dedicated SD card slot option. The phone will have a 13-megapixel rear camera sensor along with an 8-megapixel front camera sensor with LED flash. The J6 comes with a 3000-mAh battery and runs on Android 8.0 Oreo.

Lastly, the dual-SIM (Micro) Samsung Galaxy J4 runs Samsung Experience on top Android 8.0 Oreo and features a 5.5-inch HD (720x1280 pixels) Super AMOLED display. It also has a 1.4GHz quad-core Exynos 7570 SoC, coupled with 2GB of RAM and Mali-T720 MP1 GPU. The handset has a 13-megapixel rear camera sensor for full-HD (1080p) video recording, supported by LED flash. On the front, there is a 5-megapixel camera sensor with an LED flash. Users now have the ability to adjust flash intensity using three given levels of brightness. Furthermore, there is a story feature that lets users create various stories from their previous memories, add background music and easily share them on social networks.

Galaxy J6 (4/64GB) and J6 (3/32GB) are priced at Rs. 46,190 and Rs. 36,590 respectively. Galaxy J7 Duo (4/32GB) is priced at Rs. 44,190 while the J4 (3/32GB) and J4 (2/16GB) variants are priced at Rs. 28,490, Rs. 25,990 respectively. 

The J7 Duo is available from the end of May onwards, while J6 & J4 will be available from the mid of June at JKOA, Softlogic, Singhagiri, Singer, Damro, and authorised retailers island-wide.
