Samsung lists the Galaxy A6 and A6+ on its official website with full specs in tow


Samsung is about to officially introduce the Galaxy A6 and A6+, two mid-range Android smartphones that are likely to make their debut in Asia. There's no doubt that they will be available worldwide at some point, but chances are Samsung won't bring them to the US.

Even though they haven't been unveiled yet, Samsung has already listed the Galaxy A6 and A6+ on its official website, so we know most of their specs. The only things that are left to determine are when they will be available for purchase and how much they will cost.

Still, there's no doubt that the Galaxy A6 will be the cheapest of the two. The phone has been confirmed to sport a 5.6-inch Super AMOLED Infinity display with HD+ (1480 x 720 pixels) resolution and 18.5:9 aspect ration. 


The Galaxy A6+, on the other hand, will boast a much larger 6-inch Super AMOLED Infinity display with FHD+ (2220 x 1080 pixels) resolution and the same aspect ratio (18.5:9). Both smartphones feature Dolby Atmos support and rear-mounted fingerprint sensors.

However, the regular Galaxy A6 comes with a 16-megapixel single-lens camera, whereas the Galaxy A6+ has a dual-camera setup: 16MP+5MP. Also, the former features a 16-megapixel selfie camera, while the latter includes a 24-megapixel selfie snapper, but both come with front-facing LED flash.

On the inside, the Galaxy A6 packs an Exynos 7870 processor, paired with either 3GB RAM and 32GB storage, or 4GB RAM and 64GB storage, depending on the market. Samsung Galaxy A6+ is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 CPU, and similar memory configurations – 3GB/32GB and 4GB/64GB.


Both smartphones ships with Android 8.1 Oreo right out of the box, but the Galaxy A6+ has a bigger 3,500 mAh battery, as opposed to the regular Galaxy A6 that features a 3,000 mAh battery.

Mid-range, SD 450? Thought mid-range should equip with SD 600 series.

Possibly mid-range means the pricing, not the specs?

That's subjective. I consider mid-range to mean the specs, and not the price. If this A6+ costs $600 for example, that won't make it high-end. For me, it will still remain a midranger.

I don't remember when Samsung launched an A Series phone for 600 bucks.

Last year's A7 launched for 380, your example is 1,6 times the actual price

It's not even A7's successor, it's A5's successor.

he said "for example" and yes, the Galaxy A8+ was priced at 13.490.000 VND in Vietnam, or ~590USD, and the phone IS, by any mean, a mid-range phone with a few high-end functions at best

These phones are presumably dead on arrival.

TBH Samsung Exynos chips are so bad. They are so weak in terms of power and drains battery so hard. And SD 450 in a glorified mid range smartphone in this day and age???? OH PLZZZZZ.....

You make a good point, and these phones will most likely only be solid in the domestic market first...Where Samsung had to almost pry the Galaxy s3 out of the customers hands only about a year and a half ago, because the country's connectivity and customer service heavily compensated for the phone's considerably outdated specs.

SD450?? Not even SD625?? Btw rest of specs looks good, but should be priced competitively.

Snapdragon 450??? x_x This phone will likely cost upwards of $350 in most areas.
