MANILA, PHILIPPINES Samsung is finally bringing their newest device on the Philippine shores, the Galaxy J6 (2018).

Boasting features that you don’t usually see on mid-range smartphones, the Samsung Galaxy J6 is equipped with a 5.6-inch HD+ Super AMOLED infinity Display and Dolby Atmos which enhances audio listening experience, which gives it a little edge against competing smartphones.

The phone is basically powered by Samsung’s homebaked Exynos 7870 Octa-core CPU, and paired with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal, expandable storage. The phone is powered by a 3000mAh battery and all of these are managed by Android Oreo 8.0 out-of-the-box.

In terms of optics, Samsung employs the traditional configuration for 2018 midrange smartphones, with a 13MP f/1.9 single rear camera setup and an 8MP f/1.9 front camera to complement it.

As Samsung says, the phone is marketed for next-level entertainment and gaming and while it doesn’t sport the greatest gaming phone specifications, we’re glad to report you that this phone can run PUBG mobile at the very minimal, low settings.
