According to a set of recently spotted benchmark listings, the Samsung Galaxy A6 is powered by the Exynos 7870 processor, while the Plus variant has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 under the hood. Both are expected to debut in Europe, Russia, and the Middle East in the coming months with Android Oreo onboard.

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.

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.
