When Samsung announced the Galaxy A8 duo this year, we thought that the premium series is undergoing a transformation to make things more simple. Later on, the company launched the A6 duo, then the Galaxy A8 Star, then the A7 (2018) and so on. Well, there goes all the simplicity down the drain. But wait, there’s some more coming. Samsung is not yet done with the A6 and the device previously known as the China-exclusive Galaxy P30 will launch as the Galaxy A6s in international markets. The P30 (not Motorola) was spotted on China’s TENAA and we have some specifications of the device.
The Galaxy A6+ earned a bad name for Samsung as it featured a Snapdragon 450 SoC, but it looks like the Galaxy A6+ could feature a much better Snapdragon 660 or 710 as the listing shows a 2.2GHz processor. The Chinese equipment certifier also published images revealing a notchless display. It’s a 5.99-inch IPS LCD panel with 2160 x 1080 resolution. The Galaxy P30 or the Galaxy a6s has plenty of RAM – 6GB and storage options are 64GB and 128GB. The front cameras might still leave you unimpressed as there is mention of a 5MP shooter on TENAA.
The rear has a 12MP + 2MP rear camera setup which is again a downgrade from the 16MP + 5MP shooters on the A6+. The handset has a decent-sized 3,300mAh battery that runs Android Oreo. Also, as you can see in the images, the rear has a visible fingerprint sensor which puts to bed all the rumours of an on-screen sensor once and for all.

Samsung will be holding an event on October 11 for a launch event where we could see the Galaxy A6s launch in Malaysia. However, all eyes will be on the Galaxy A9 Pro that is definitely launching at the event.
