Samsung launched the Galaxy J6 alongside Galaxy J8, Galaxy A6, and Galaxy A6+ smartphones in India in May. The company is rumored to bring the Prime variant of Galaxy J6 soon. The alleged smartphone listing was spotted on Samsung’s Vietnamese site last week suggesting that the company is gearing up for the launch. The handset has now been certified by FCC in the US confirming that it is indeed arriving next.

According to Sammobile, the new Galaxy J6 variant with model number SM-J610F has been certified by the FCC. The listing confirms that the smartphone will be marketed as Samsung Galaxy J6 Prime, but the listing doesn’t reveal any specification of the device. The smartphone seems as successor to current Galaxy J6 model.

As for alleged specifications of Samsung Galaxy J6 Prime, it is believed that Samsung will go for large 18:9 HD+ Infinity Display, and could feature a Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 processor along with dual rear cameras. The handset is reportedly being tested with Android 8.1 Oreo, so that could be the firmware out-of-the-box from Samsung.
