Sprint will offer the new Samsung Galaxy A6 too
Although Samsung didn't say anything about a U.S. release of its new Galaxy A6 and A6+ smartphones, rumor has it that AT&T plans to introduce the former in the country at some point.

Now SamMobile reports that another carrier in the U.S. plans to launch the Galaxy A6 – Sprint. However, there is still no info available about the phone's price and availability, but we do know the Galaxy A6 sells in Europe for €310, so we expect the U.S. version to sell for much less.

The Galaxy A6 is a pure mid-range smartphone, hence the price. The device sports a 5.6-inch sAMOLED Infinity display with HD+ (720 x 1480 pixels) resolution and 18.5:9 aspect ratio.

It also comes with a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor and a more than decent 16-megapixel camera on the back, as well as a secondary 16-megapixel camera in the front with LED flash. It's yet unclear which version of the Galaxy A6 Sprint will sell, but the phone is available in either 4GB RAM and 64GB internal memory, or 3GB RAM and 32GB storage variations.

Samsung Galaxy A6 will ship with Android 8.0 Oreo on board and comes with some nifty features like Dolby Atmos, Samsung Pay, Bixby Vision, and Face Recognition.

It remains to be seen whether or not T-Mobile will carry the Samsung Galaxy A6 as well seeing that two of its competitors will get it.

Wow. I really wish that it was smaller because I can't even imagine how it is to use a A series phone with carrier features.

It doesn't have anything to do with it directly, that's just my personal wish. The A series of 2017 had a better range of sizes. Since it was only released with international models, you can't get carrier features on any of them. Having one released stateside means that carrier features would be available.
