Samsung Galaxy A6 and Samsung Galaxy A6+ were recently revealed on the company’s official support website. The latest leak offers information on important internal components of the handsets. This comes on the back of launch of Samsung Galaxy A8(2018) and the Samsung Galaxy A8+(2018) recently by Samsung.
The Galaxy A6 is expected to have a 5.6-inch full-HD+ display, same as that on the Samsung Galaxy A8 (2018). Its bigger brother, the Samsung Galaxy A6+ would likely sport the 6.0-inch display like the one on the Samsung Galaxy A8+ (2018). Both variants are suggested to get Infinity Displays with a resolution of 1080×2220 in a 18.5:9 aspect ratio, and a pixel density of 441ppi. The Super AMOLED displays on the Samsung Galaxy A8+ (2018) and Samsung Galaxy A8 (2018) were lauded for their vibrancy, excellent sunlight legibility due to high brightness and viewing angles. The revamped A6 line would be a welcome addition to the roster of higher mid-range smartphones currently available
Under the hood, the Galaxy A6 will reportedly be powered by an octa-core Exynos 7870 SoC, coupled with 3GB RAM and have 32GB inbuilt storage. The Galaxy A6+ will likely be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 SoC, paired with 4GB RAM and 32GB onboard storage. The Snapdragon 450 is clearly a better all-round SoC. However, previous leaks revealed that the Galaxy A6+ might be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 SoC, which puts to doubt the latest leaks.
The listings also reveal that the two phones will run Samsung Experience 9.0 on top of Android Oreo out-of-the-box. Additionally, the presence of onscreen buttons in the screenshot suggests that the A6 line might skip a physical home button. The pricing detail, launch date and other critical info is still unknown. The A8 costs around Rs.25990 currently. An educated guess may place the pricing for the Galaxy A6 at around Rs.18000. Similarly, the pricing for Galaxy A6+ may be placed at around Rs.20000. However, the imminent release of the Moto G6 line of smartphones may undercut demand for the Samsung Galaxy A6 line. The A6 line would most likely though, have an edge in display quality. The Moto G6 line would quite likely better bang for buck for the average consumer. Moreover, it would probably offer better camera experience.
