Samsung’s new pairs of handsets have been unveiled. The two handsets — i.e. Galaxy A6 and A6 Plus — is the latest addition to Samsung’s A-series lineup this year. The launch also now makes both duo a part of a bezel-less trend going on. Let’s take a look at what these two devices have to offer.
Samsung Galaxy A6
The Samsung Galaxy A6 is a cheaper and less exciting version of this list. It still has a (5.6-inch) 720p display, though it’s Infinity. Inside its brain is the Exynos 7870 chipset clocked at 1.6GHz with either 3GB of RAM and 32GB of ROM or 4GB of RAM and 64GB of ROM.
At the rear, the Galaxy A6 misses on something it’s [recently launched] cousin J7 Duo has; a dual-camera. Meaning, the handset has a single 16MP camera with f/1.7 aperture, PDAF, and an LED flash. The front, though is somewhat impressive. Selfies are taken care by a similar 16MP camera with f/1.9 aperture and LED flash.
Powering all these things is an average 3,000mAh battery and Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box which is welcoming to us.
Samsung Galaxy A6 Plus
The Galaxy A6 Plus is an elder brother of the A6. It has a superior screen, camera, and even the battery life is upgraded, thus carrying a ‘Plus’ moniker. The big 6-inch screen is equally complemented with a higher res Infinity display.
Though the chipset is a little bit powerful than its counterpart, the camera is what most of the people would be looking for. The Galaxy A6 Plus has a dual-camera setup at the back. The dual-lens comprises of the 16MP f/1.7 sensor and 5MP f/1.9 sensor. Both cameras support PDAF and have LED flash. The dual-camera allows the A6 Plus to capture images with bokeh effects in the background. That’s also something like a trend going on for a while. At the front, it has an impressive 24MP camera with f/1.9 lens and LED flash.
Talking about that processor, the Galaxy A6 Plus has an unnamed octa-core chipset with a clock speed of 1.8GHz. The chipset is completed with either 3/32GB variant or 4/64GB variant.
Juicing up the device is a bigger 3,500mAh battery, while the software remains to be same.
Although both mid-rangers have been differentiated with each set of features, Samsung has thankfully added some similar perks to both phones. Those include a support for Dolby Atmos sounds on headphones, Bixby, and Samsung Pay support.
Both phones are expected to hit the market early May in Europe, Asia, and America, whilst countries like China, South Korea, and Africa are also on the list for later.
