Samsung Sells 2 Million Units of Galaxy J6 and Galaxy J8 Since the Launch

In a recent statement from Samsung, the company has revealed that it has registered massive success with the sales of its mid-range phones Samsung Galaxy J6 and Galaxy J8. Notably, the Galaxy J6 was launched on May 22 this year, while the Galaxy J8 debuted on June 28. Samsung has said that the phones have amassed a sales figure of 2 million within this short span of time. These two phones attracted approximately 50,000 customers daily, the spokesperson said to IANS.

Asim Warsi, Senior Vice President of Samsung India, made the announcement and said “We are happy with the huge success of Galaxy J8 and Galaxy J6 smartphones. Our philosophy of keeping our ears to the ground and incorporating consumer feedback into our products has paid off.” Warsi further added, “Galaxy J8 and Galaxy J6 have set the standard for an unparalleled viewing experience with our signature super AMOLED Infinity Display.”

One of the most liked features of the phone was the Chat-over-Video feature which was reportedly being used by more than 50% users on a regular basis. The Samsung Galaxy J8 retails in the market for Rs 18,990 while the Galaxy J6 (64GB and 32GB variants) is available at Rs 15,990 for the 64GB option and Rs 13,990 for the 32GB variant. The Infinity Display on both the phones has been said to be the highlight of these phones which has been claimed to deliver 15% more screen real estate without increasing the size of the phone. The aspect ratio of the device is also the Samsung’s signature 18.5:9 which makes up for better viewing and browsing experience on the phone. Also, the J8 sports a dual rear camera setup that features a ‘Live Focus’ which blurs the background and brings focus to the foreground, much like the portrait mode.

Warsi further said about this achievement “Galaxy J, known for unique ‘Make for India’ innovations, has a stellar legacy, accounting for one in three smartphones sold in the country. We are confident that the new devices will help us further increase our market share in the country.”

Singapore based research firm Canalys also brought it to light that Samsung had registered 50% annual growth rate in the second quarter of 2018, which makes it Samsung’s best quarter since the fourth quarter of 2015. Samsung also sold 9.9 million smartphones in India in the second quarter of 2018. Among all the phones, the Galaxy J2 Pro remained the highest selling phone with 2.3 million units sold in India.

Did some Speedtests on someone’s J6 and it consistently gave unexpectedly lower speeds on 4G and Wi-Fi as compared to other phones. Won’t recommend to anyone.

After Moto Z play,Motorola has lost the plot totally. It’s heck of one good phone they released. Now they have lost the whole plot and with update policy they will be extinct at least in India in couple of years if they don’t price it rightly.

Samsung J and A series is done and dusted since long. Samsung A8+ is great phone but it’s overpriced to be honest. All Samsung phones are over priced to be honest.I won’t recommend Samsung J and A series unless and until you want good display. Samsung hardly doing anything research in midrange chipsets since years. Or at least use the flagship chipsets in next year’s A series phones at 25000-30000. Thanks chance is also gone as Nokia and Oppo/Honor has taken that place. Now Asus Zenfone 5Z. Who will buy this Samsung A8+. Only fool will buy this. Also last… Read more »

Decent brand always sells like Samsung, Asus, Motorola.
People who don’t have knowledge about after sales service issues usually end up buying cheap Chinese brands like xiaomi oppo gionee etc scrap.
