Oreo update for Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 edge paused amid glitches

Samsung is hosting a press conference in Mumbai on May 21 where it will launch the Galaxy J6 and possibly a couple of more phones from the Galaxy A line-up.

Samsung is expected to launch two Galaxy A series phones and two Galaxy J series phones.

The teaser video in the tweet also confirms the presence of a bezel-less Infinity Display - similar to the one found in the Samsung Galaxy S8 or the S9.

Although hardware specs of the Galaxy J6 are scarce as of now, rumour has it that the phone will come with a 5.6-inch 720p+ AMOLED display and an Exynos processor inside.

Hawaii bracing for major volcano eruption as alert level heightened
Geologists warn that Kilauea's summit could have an explosive steam eruption that would hurl rocks and ash miles into the sky. No deaths or major injuries have been reported, but officials have ordered about 2,000 residents to evacuate the area.

The upcoming Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 is already under process and the possibility of getting the tab is very high. The Infinity Display is Samsung's take on the bezel-less display and sports an 18.5:9 aspect ratio. The Galaxy J series phones will include the Galaxy J4 and the Galaxy J6. It's expected to run an Android 8.1 Oreo-based ROM and feature a 3,000mAh battery.

On the camera front, the device is enabled with a 13-megapixel sensor at the back followed by an 8-megapixel front-facing snapper. The Galaxy J6 (2018) cost is listed as INR 15,000 – thats around $220/€190, below the expected price of €250.

The J6 model will be available in stores from May 22 with three different storage options (2 GB/3GB/4GB RAM) and up to 64 GB internal storage. Despite running the modern Android 8.0 Oreo OS, this thing packs a pretty bad 2GB RAM and an outdated Exynos 7870 processor, which probably means the so-called J7 Aero won't be similar to the India-exclusive J7 Duo after all. Elsewhere, Samsung's J-series has also been the harbinger of extra features developed by Samsung at its R&D centers in India - like the S-bike mode for instance - and chances are the Galaxy J6 may bring something new in this regard.
