Samsung Galaxy A6+ unboxing and first look


The Samsung Galaxy A6+ is the company's newest affordable phone and it brings the Infinity Display with a Super AMOLED tech, the dual camera with Live Focus portrait mode and a super-powered front camera with an LED flash, all in a package that won't break the bank.

Before we publish our detailed Galaxy A6+ review, though, we now take a moment to unbox the phone, see what you get inside the box, and take the phone for a quick spin to get a proper first look.

So with no further ado... here's what's inside the box:

  • Phone
  • User manuals
  • Wall charger (7.75 watts)
  • MicroUSB to standard USB cable
  • White earbuds with in-line mic and controller
  • SIM Ejector tool

The Galaxy A6+ itself is an entry-level phone that has a metal body and the look of a more expensive device. Under the hood, you get the entry-level Snapdragon 450 chip paired with 3GB of RAM, while on the storage side you get 32GB of storage and support for memory expansion via microSD cards.

On the back, you have two cameras, a 16-megapixel f/1.7 one and a secondary, 5-megapixel shooter with f/1.9 aperture, both working together to create pictures with a blurred background, an effect similar to what you get on a professional camera. Up front, you have a 24-megapixel selfie snapper with a dedicated LED flash.

Finally, on the battery front, the phone is equipped with a 3,500mAh cell that promises better-than-average battery life.

Stay tuned for our full review of the Samsung Galaxy A6+ coming soon!
