Dual camera for Samsung's mid-range

If this Samsung Galaxy J6 + stands out for something, it is, as we mentioned at the beginning of the article, for its camera. In technical data we find a double rear camera of 13 and 5 megapixels with focal aperture f / 1.9 and f / 2.2 . In practice, it results in photos with good definition and enough lighting at night to pick up scenes with low light, mainly due to the f / 1.9 focus aperture. This same aperture is also found in the front sensor , which is expected to take good selfies even in adverse light conditions.

Samsung also announces the compatibility of all its cameras with the Live Focus feature, thanks to which we can take photos with the famous bokeh mode , in the same way as in the Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus or the Galaxy Note 9.

6-inch screen, face unlock and Snapdragon processor

The second aspect for which this Samsung Galaxy J6 + stands out compared to its predecessor is the screen. The latest model presented by Samsung has a 6-inch screen with the same resolution as the J6 . Specifically HD + in an elongated 18.5: 9 ratio. Unsurprisingly, it has the same screen technology: IPS LCD.
