However, all the specifications are still based on rumors so it's worth waiting for the official confirmation on the day of Samsung's event.

The Galaxy J6 Plus will be available with 4GB RAM/64GB storage and the Galaxy J4+ with 2GB RAM/32GB storage.

In the imaging department, the Samsung Galaxy J6 Plus boasts a dual-camera set up at the back comprising a 13MP primary sensor paired with a 5MP depth-sensing camera. For selfies, there is a single 24-megapixel fixed-focus camera sensor at the front along with an f/2.0 aperture and an LED flash.
Both Galaxy J4+ and J6+ are powered by Snapdragon 425 processor for superior performance. Four cameras can actually seriously improve the quality of photos and videos, however, this is only a theory, and in practice the result may not be as good.
Eagle-eyed techies at the XDA Developers site looked into the code for Google's Android 9 operating system update that had been configured for existing Samsung phones.
The most exciting addition to the Galaxy A7 could be the side fingerprint sensor. The second is a 42-mm option that comes in full body midnight black and rose gold option. There are also rumors of HMD Global working on a smartphone with penta-camera setup while a startup named Light is planning a smartphone with nine cameras on the back.
