Samsung is launching the Galaxy J6 later today along with the Galaxy J4, Galaxy A6, and the Galaxy A6 . However, the Samsung Galaxy J6;s design and pricing was leaked last week along with some of its features and specifications. We had also spotted one of the variants of the Galaxy J6 (SM J600G) in Geekbench;s benchmark score database last week, confirming that at least one variant of the phone will feature Exynos 7870 processing chipset and 3GB RAM. Now, we;re happy to exclusively bring you confirmed specifications of the Galaxy J6 ahead of its official launch.The Galaxy J6 features a 5.6 inch Super AMOLED screen with HD resolution (720 1480 pixels), 18:9 aspect ratio, and support for 16 million colours. Like most mid range and high end smartphones these days, the Galaxy J6 has reduced bezels around the screen, making most of the frontal design of the phone covered by the display. The phone uses an Exynos 7870 chipset with 1.6GHz Cortex A53 octa core CPU and Mali T830 MP1 GPU. It has 3GB of RAM, 32GB storage chip (available memory 24.2GB), and a microSD card slot (support for up to 256GB cards). There might be variants of the phone with 2GB and 4GB RAM.
Apple says it began slowing down the iPhone 6, iPhone 6s, and iPhone SE last year, and just began doing so with the iPhone 7, which is little more than a year old. The company;s statement came after a recent Reddit post and blog post on benchmarking tool Geekbench;s website sparked a conversation around the relationship between flagging iPhone performance and battery condition.Apple may have the best of intentions. Having your phone occasionally slow down is probably preferable to coping with total shutdowns, as is prolonging the overall life of your battery. But some are reading the company 's statement as confirmation of a longstanding myth: Apple slows down old iPhones to get users to upgrade to newer, pricer models as a form of planned obsolescence. (The company also charges about $80 to replace an old iPhone battery with a fresh one.)
