Samsung Galaxy A6s specs revealed to include 6-inch screen, 6GB RAM
Samsung’s mid-range smartphones don’t usually make a lot of noise in the rumor mill prior to being officially unveiled, but the Galaxy A6s (formerly known as Galaxy P30) is pretty special from that standpoint.

Unfortunately, early speculation about the handset possibly paving the way for next year’s Galaxy S10 with in-display fingerprint recognition technology has proven as phony as a three-dollar bill.

Still, we were curious to see what the Galaxy A6s wanted to do to stand out from the Galaxy A6 and A6+, which has already come to light, thanks to China’s FCC-equivalent Tenaa institution.

The local telecommunications equipment certification center had published revealing product images last week, adding full information on specifications over the weekend. The SM-G6200 apparently sports a 5.99-inch IPS LCD panel with 2160 x 1080 resolution. 

Oddly enough, that’s a slightly lower pixel count than the 6-inch AMOLED Galaxy A6+ (2018), which offers 2220 x 1080 resolution. On the bright side, the Samsung Galaxy A6s is listed with a hefty 6GB RAM, generous 64 and 128GB storage options, as well as an unnamed processor clocked at up to 2.2 GHz, which could be a Snapdragon 660 or 710.

Either way, a solid upgrade over the Snapdragon 450 inside the A6+, although we’re not sure the same applies to the phone’s dual rear-facing cameras, listed as combining 12 and 2MP imaging sensors, compared to the 16 + 5MP two-lens setup on the back of the A6+.

The Galaxy A6s is not shaping up to be a selfie-taking powerhouse either, with a single 5MP front shooter in tow, running Android 8.1 Oreo on the software side of things, and packing a decent but far from impressive 3,300 mAh battery. 

That’s made even less impressive by the 8.39 mm profile of the Galaxy A6s, which is chunkier than the A6+ waist. But for what it’s worth, the new guy is around 4 millimeters shorter. Also, it could come in snazzy gradient colors.
