Samsung released its latest mid-range smartphone recently, the Galaxy A5 (yet to hit the stores) and the Galaxy A8. Both sport a much needed refreshed look like the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S9. Both have shed the thick top and bottom bezels in favour of a taller display.
According to fresh leaks, Samsung is now hard at work to add a new member to the A-series family. The Galaxy A6 and Galaxy A6 Plus follow the suite of the company’s flagships the Galaxy S9 and the Galaxy S9 Plus. WinFuture, a German tech blog appears to have got its hands on official pictures pertaining to the new Galaxy phones.
The leaked images confirm some interesting rumours about Samsung’s latest market contenders. Both A6 and the A6 Plus will sport AMOLED display with an 18.5:9 aspect ratio making it a phone with what Samsung likes to call “an Infinity Display”.
However, the resolution of those displays appear to disappointing. The smaller Galaxy A6 will use a display with a resolution of 1480×720 which is HD+ but its way far than the 1080p mark. On the other hand, the Galaxy A6 Plus will use a display with a resolution of 2220×1080 which makes it a FHD+ phone.
On the processor front, both the versions appear to rely on the same Exynos 7870 chip clocked at 1.6GHz. The details about the memory to be packed in the phone remain a mystery at the moment, however, one minor detail has been confirmed i.e. the base model will use 3GB of RAM with 32GB of internal storage.
The Galaxy A6 will use a single camera on the back while the Plus model will pull images from two cameras. The A6 and the A6 Plus will use a 16MP sensor with f/1.7 aperture whereas the A6 Plus will use an additional 5MP sensor with f/1.9 aperture for to create the bokeh effect. On the front, both the phones will sport a 16MP sensor with f/1.9 aperture.
The phone is expected to hit Europe, India, and China in the coming weeks for around $360.
