Samsung’s mid-range Galaxy J-series smartphones have been fairly successful in India, but they are still priced slightly higher than the competition. To make the devices competitive, Samsung has given a few price cuts to the Galaxy J6 and other devices, and the recent pricing make them even more affordable.
The Galaxy J6 was launched in India earlier this year at Rs 13,990 for the 3GB RAM variant, and Rs 16,490 for the 4GB RAM variant. Now, with the third price cut, the 3GB RAM variant is available for Rs 12,490, whereas the 4GB RAM variant is available for Rs 13,990. The price drop was revealed by Mumbai-based retailer Mahesh Telecom. BGR India has reached out to Samsung to confirm the same, and we will update as soon as the company reverts.
