We are all set to see new products from Samsung. https://twitter.com/BGRIndia/status/998457300645040128

Samsung is hosting an event in Mumbai today where it is expected to launch a couple of new smartphones. If leaks are to be believed, two of the upcoming smartphones will be the Galaxy J6, and the Galaxy A6+. While the Samsung Galaxy A6+ has already been launched in select markets, the Samsung Galaxy J6 is a new device. The highlight on both the devices will be the Infinity Display, which was first introduced on last year’s Galaxy S8 smartphones.

In the run-up to the event today, we have come across numerous leaks that have given us a fair idea on what to expect from both the devices. In fact, a leak over the weekend gave us a look at how the smartphones could be priced. The MRP of the Galaxy J6 is said to be Rs 14,999, while that of the Galaxy A6+ is said to be Rs 28,000. Needless to say, the final pricing of the smartphones will be a tad different.

We are at the launch event in Mumbai, so follow us for all the updates from Samsung.
