AT&T brings the Samsung Galaxy A6 (2018) to the US
Back in May, Samsung released this year's Galaxy A6 handset. Although there is no flagship-level list of specs or features to talk about, this smartphone does not come cheap in the US, where AT&T customers can finally get it for a full retail price of US$419.99. Fortunately, those interested who are not willing to pay this amount at once can go with 30 monthly payments of US$14 each and no initial payment.
Powered by the quad-core Exynos 7870 Octa processor, the Samsung Galaxy A6 (2018) comes with 3 GB of memory, 32 GB internal storage, a rather modest 5.6-inch Infinity display with only 1,480 x 720 pixels (leaving aside the resolution, it is also fair to point out that this is a Super AMOLED screen), and 16 MP cameras on both sides.
In addition to the above, there is a rear-mounted fingerprint reader, optional NFC, WiFi 802.11 a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.2, GPS with A-GPS and GLONASS, FM radio, and so on. Sadly, the 3,000 mAh battery only uses micro USB 2.0 for charging.
The Samsung Galaxy A6 (2018) comes with Android 8.0 Oreo onboard and should receive Android 9.0 Pie in the future. Remains to see when will that happen. Given Samsung's history in this field, one can only hope to run the most recent Android update on the new Galaxy A6 (2018) before 2020 arrives.
Would you spend US$419.99 to get this phone on AT&T or is there any better choice for the fans of this US carrier? Let us know in the comments.
