Samsung officially announced its new mid-range Galaxy A6 and A6 + smartphones. The details of these have already been dropped over the internet last days, but now we have complete and official details from the company, along with information on the availability of terminals. It looks like the metallic rear design similar to the Galaxy J is now also used on Galaxy A, while on the front we have a "high" screen similar to the Galaxy A8
The two models are very similar from the point of view of the internal hardware, the notable differences being evident in the external dimensions, the display and the camera system
The Galaxy A6 comes equipped with a 5.6 "(1.480 x 720 pixels) HD + display based on a Super AMOLED panel. It will integrate a 1.6 GHz octa-core chipset, most likely a proprietary Exynos model. The rumors suggested the 7870 last year, which can still offer a very good user experience. There will be configurations with 3 GB RAM and 32 GB storage or 4 GB RAM and 64 GB storage, microSD slot and a 3,000 mAh battery. The front camera will capture 16 megapixel f / 1.9 and receive flash, while the main camera will use a 16 megapixel f / 1.7 diaphragm sensor
The A6 + offers a larger 6 "display with Full HD + resolution (2,220 x 1,080 pixels) on the same 18.5: 9 format. The processor does not change and the hardware configurations with 3 and 4 GB RAM, but the cameras are completely different. On the front is a 24-megapixel sensor with f / 1.9 lens, while on the back we have a 16 megapixel f / 1.7 main sensor and a 5 megapixel f / 1.9 secondary, which is used for taking pictures of type "portrait."
The Fingerprint Sensor for both models is below the rear-mounted rear-wheel assembly with a similar design to the new Galaxy S9 and S9 + models. Strange is the choice of a micro-USB port compared to the current USB Type-C standard. The good news is that these devices also keep the 3.5mm headphone jack.
We do not have a price yet for the new devices, but they will soon be launched in Europe, Asia and Latin America, and then appear in South Korea, Africa and China
