Samsung may be planning to launch a new smartphone from its J6-series lineup in the Indian market. According to the information on the internet, the company is planning to launch the Samsung Galaxy J6 Prime in the market. This comes right after the support page for the Galaxy J6 Prime was spotted on the Samsung India website. This indicates that the company is readying the online resources for the page before it makes the official announcement about the launch of the device. The J6 Prime is likely to be a variant of the Galaxy J6 along with some incremental updates.

The support page was spotted by MySmartPrice and the report indicated that the company is working on Prime versions of different devices from the J-series lineup including Galaxy J4 and J6. The report indicated that both these variants were spotted on the Samsung Vietnam website indicating that the company may soon launch these budget devices in the Vietnamese market. The Galaxy J6 Prime support page on the Indian website points out that the company may launch the device in both these markets around the same time. The support page indicated that the J6 Prime will come with model number SM-J610F/DS.

Meanwhile, Samsung hasn’t revealed any other details about the device including its specifications, pricing, or the availability. The support page also does not indicate much about the device and instead, contains “common topics” that future J6 Prime users may need support on.

The report referred to a Dutch blog that claimed that Samsung may launch the J6 Prime in Vietnam and Netherlands before bringing it to other markets. The report indicated that it is likely that Samsung may replace its in-house Exynos chip-set with Snapdragon chips for the J6 Prime. The device is speculated to have 4GB RAM and up to 128GB internal storage while running on Android 8.1 Oreo. The device may also be landing to the United States as it just received FCC certification.
