Samsung’s unreleased Galaxy A6 and A6 Plus have been so exposed to the rumour mill, it seems like they’re already official. A recent demo video of the Galaxy A6 leaked at the weekend and the A6+ internals was exposed by TENAA as well. Still, the leak cycle goes on as Roland Quandt confirms what has already been known in the past week.
As per him, the Galaxy A6 and A6+ are meant for “price-conscious” customers. If you haven’t been living under a rock, the duo resembles the Galaxy A8 and A8+ strikingly. However, that is as far as the front fascia is concerned. The rear is an all meta build as opposed to a glass finish on the A8 and A8 Plus. And we’re left to wonder where does this product fall in Samsung’s new A series. Well, Samsung might price it more sensibly this time if the rumours are true.
The leak reiterates the previously known specs of the two devices. The Galaxy A6 will feature a 5.6-inch HD Super AMOLED display. The display will be employed by an Exynos 7870 SoC clocked at 1.6 GHz with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of expandable storage in tow.
The Galaxy A6 has just a single camera of 16MP both on the front and the rear. However, the rear camera has a slightly bigger f/1.7 aperture compared to the f/1.9 aperture on the front. The 7.7mm thick handset has a 3000mAh battery and price is expected to be around 300 to 340 Euros (Rs 24,000 to Rs 27,500).
As for the Galaxy A6+, it will be a bigger handset than the Galaxy A6. Like the TENAA listing described, leaked official material shows a 6.0-inch Full HD+ Super AMOLED display. Under the hood, a Snapdragon 450 is the engine of the handset. Depending on the country, there are two variants. 3GB/4GB of RAM and 32GB/64GB of storage.
The camera is another big area of change. The dual setup is completed by a 16MP and 5MP sensors, each with a f/1.7 and a f/1.9 aperture. The front also has a better 24MP sensor, at least on paper.
Other notable differences include a 3500mAh power source with USB Type-C and Bluetooth 5.0. Despite all the leaks, what has escaped scrutiny is the IPXX rating or whether there is one or not. However, Quandt believes its price to be between 360 Euros and 400 Euros (around Rs 29,000 to Rs 32,000). Do you want them to arrive in India soon? Let us know in the comments section below.
