The Samsung Galaxy A6 and Galaxy A6+ coming later this year
Although the Galaxy A lineup consisted of average mid-rangers in the past, Samsung has recently pushed this family of devices closer to the flagship territory with the release of the Galaxy A8 (2018) and Galaxy A8+ (2018). Now, we hear that two mid-rangers are in the works, and they will launch as the Galaxy A6 and Galaxy A6+.
According to SamMobile, the two aforementioned Galaxy A handsets will launch in the coming months. A set of recently spotted benchmark listings reveals the following details:
In addition to the above, the upcoming Galaxy A handsets will come with Android 8.0 Oreo onboard. Sadly, there is no information about the screen size and resolution or the camera setups that these handsets will use, but we expect that Samsung is wise enough to add a dual camera at least to the Galaxy A6+, since most of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 625-driven mid-rangers currently on the market have one (the Xiaomi Mi A1 is probably the most popular such handset).
At last, SamMobile also revealed that the Galaxy A6 and its more powerful sibling will be released in Europe, Russia, and the Middle East. There is no accurate launch date to talk about yet, but the event should take place in the coming months. The pricing will depend on the market and will probably be revealed at launch.
