Full Samsung Galaxy A6 and Galaxy A6+ specs list revealed
Although the Samsung Galaxy A6 and Galaxy A6+ surfaced in countless leaks and rumors so far, the last one leaves nothing to the imagination. Thanks to WinFuture, all the technical details — as well as a generous set of official images — are now public. Now, it only remains for Samsung to make the official introduction of these two mid-rangers.
The smaller of the two is the 5.6-inch Galaxy A6, which features an Infinity Display with a ratio of 18.5:9 and a rather low resolution of 1,480 x 720 pixels. This handset is powered by the Exynos 7870 Octa processor, next to 3 GB RAM and 32 GB internal storage. However, some markets will also get a variant with 4 GB RAM and 64 GB storage. A microSD slot with support for cards up to 256 GB in size is also present.
When it comes to the camera department, we should say that the Galaxy A6 features a 16 MP shooter with f/1.7 aperture, as well as a selfie shooter with LED flash, a 16 MP sensor, and f/1.9 aperture. In terms of connectivity, there is NFC and Samsung Pay support, Bluetooth 4.2, WiFi, and GPS.
The Galaxy A6 has a 3,000 mAh battery under the hood and is expected to have a price tag of at least US$350.
The Samsung Galaxy A6+ comes with a generous 6-inch display with the same aspect ratio as its smaller sibling, but with a resolution of 2,220 x 1,080 pixels. Its list of specs includes a Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 processor, next to the same memory/storage combinations we mentioned for the Galaxy A6. However, it seems that this phablet will support microSD cards up to 400 GB in size.
The cameras of the Galaxy A6+ are noticeably better than those of the Galaxy A6. This device comes with a 24 MP selfie shooter with f/1.9, as well as a dual camera setup that brings together a 16 MP sensor and a 5 MP sensor with different aperture values (f/1.7 and f/1.9).
Powered by a 3,500 mAh battery, the Galaxy A6+ features Bluetooth 5.0 support and is expected to hit the market starting around US$420.
Both handsets mentioned here also come with Bixby Vision, Home and Reminder, but they seem to be lacking Bixby Voice support. They are expected to ship with Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box, but Samsung still has to make the official announcement. As usual, these handsets do not look like a serious threat for the mid-rangers from China with similar prices (the Redmi Note 5 Pro, for example), but they should be fine for Samsung fans and carriers looking to add new devices to their portfolio.
