Samsung Galaxy A6 expected to hit the US via AT&T
The 5.6-inch Samsung Galaxy A6 and the larger, dual camera-wielding Galaxy A6+ arrived a month ago, but they are currently available for purchase only in select markets across Asia, Europe, and Latin America. Back at launch, Samsung did not say anything about a US release, but now it looks like they should have.
A recent message posted by Venture Beat editor and popular leakster Evan Blass on Twitter says the following and nothing more: "Samsung Galaxy A6 is AT&T-bound (SM-A600A)." Unfortunately, he did not follow up with any information about the price or special carrier deals to expect, and the US launch date for the AT&T Samsung Galaxy A6 is unknown as well.
If AT&T decides to bring all the colors currently available for the Galaxy A6 stateside, those who will buy this handset will be able to choose between black, gold, blue, and lavender. The Samsung Galaxy A6 is powered by the Exynos 7870 Octa processor, next to 4 GB RAM, 64 GB internal storage, and two 16 MP cameras (the front one with f/1.9 and the main image snapper with f/1.7 aperture). Although marketed as a mid-range device, this handset comes with a set of flagship features that includes Samsung Pay, Bixby Home/Vision/Reminder, Face Recognition, and Dolby Atmos audio.
AT&T will probably bring the Galaxy A6 to the US with Android 8.0 Oreo onboard, but we will know for certain once the carrier confirms the arrival of this handset. Do you think there is still room for a handset like the Galaxy A6 in the US smartphone market? Let us know in the comments, but first you might want to take a look at the movie below that shows both the Galaxy A6 and its larger sibling.
