The company says that both the phone have seen a huge demand attracting 50,000 consumers a day.
Galaxy J8 and J6 come with Chat-over-Video; a feature that was developed in Samsung R&D center, Noida. This feature doesn’t interrupt while viewing video content on the smartphone by ensuring that the video keeps playing and it also provides a transparent keyboard to continue chatting.

The Galaxy J6 has a 13-megapixel rear camera and an 8-megapixel front camera, both with LED flash and f/1.9 aperture, while the J8 comes with a 16-megapixel rear camera with LED flash along with a secondary 5-megapixel rear camera to capture the depth information for portrait shots with bokeh. It also has a 16-megapixel front camera. Both the phones come with a fingerprint sensor on the back and also feature face unlock.
Commenting on the new achievement, Asim Warsi, Senior Vice President, Samsung India said:
We are happy with the huge success of Galaxy J8 and J6 smartphones. Our philosophy of keeping our ears to the ground and incorporating consumer feedbacks into our products has paid off. Our recently launched Chat-over-Video feature in Infinity models has received an overwhelming response with more than 50% of consumers using it on a regular basis. Built for today’s millennials, Galaxy J8 and J6 have set the standard for an unparalleled viewing experience with our signature super AMOLED Infinity Display. 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.
