Samsung Launches Exciting New Galaxy J&A Smartphones With Infinity Display And Chat Over Video
Samsung India today launched four new smartphones- Galaxy J6, J8, A6 and A6+ with Infinity display. The mobile industry will witness a paradigm shift in the design of smartphones with the introduction of Samsung’s signature Infinity Design philosophy on the A & J Series.
The Infinity Design on the Galaxy J6, J8, A6 and A6+ gives users nearly 15% more display area without increasing the overall size of the device. This can be attributed to extremely thin bezels and by swapping the physical home button with software powered in-display home button. The finger print sensor also moves to the back of the device for added convenience. These changes in the display hardware deliver a 18.5:9 aspect ratio that provides an end to end viewing experience and more browsing space. All four devices come with Samsung’s Super AMOLED display technology that produces deeper contrasts and delivers the most vivid viewing experience. Samsung’s Infinity display experience is further strengthened by a new ‘Chat Over Video’ feature that facilitates an uninterrupted and uncompromised viewing experience while chatting.
“Galaxy J6, J8, A6 and A6+ are built for today’s millennial. These smart phones will set the standard for an unparalleled viewing experience with Samsung’s signature super AMOLED Infinity Display. These phones also get dual rear cameras that let users capture professional grade bokeh images and express themselves in a unique manner. Our latest ‘Make for India’ innovation Chat-over-Video allows uninterrupted viewing experience just the way millennials want it. We are also introducing a new youthful and vibrant blue color that shows that we listen to our young consumers who constantly seek stylish designs,” said Mohandeep Singh, Senior Vice President, Mobile Business, Samsung India.
The new smartphones have been designed to impress. Galaxy A series smartphones come with metal unibody and sleek design. The A6+ has a 6” FHD+ display, while Galaxy A6 sports a 5.6” HD+ display. Galaxy J series smartphones come with a premium polycarbonate unibody. The J8 has a 6” HD+ display, while J6 come with 5.6” HD+ display. All four smartphones have sleek curves and an ergonomic design with elegant style and comfortable grip.
Galaxy J6, J8, A6 and A6+ debut Samsung’s brand new ‘Make for India’ innovation that complements millennial requirements of uninterrupted video binging. Chat-over-Video allows consumers to chat through a transparent chat window and keyboard, while a video is still running. This new innovation eradicates the consumer pain point of chat interruptions while viewing content on their mobile devices. The other Make for India innovation, Samsung Mall app, brings a revolutionary new service for millennials. It uses Artificial Intelligence to let users shop by clicking a picture of the desired product and automatically getting results for the item across popular e-commerce platforms.
