The new Samsung Galaxy A6 sports a 5.6-inch Infinity display with 1,480 x 720 pixels, a 1.6 GHz quad-core processor, 3 GB RAM, and 32 GB internal storage. Sadly, there is no dual camera setup on the back and its full retail price is US$419.99. Obviously, AT&T customers can get it for 30 monthly payments of US$14 each.

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.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
