Some of the features from the top-end smartphones are being replicated in the lower price segments and Samsung has taken the lead in taking the Infinity display and the 18.5:9 aspect ratio to its mid-segment Samsung Galaxy A6 and A6+. And this time these are directly from the company and not mere speculations or leaks.
The bezel-free AMOLED display is the highlight of the new phones.
The Samsung Galaxy A6 will be the entry-level device of the two and will sport a 5.6-inch display having a screen resolution of 1480x720pixels. The make and model of the CPU is not known, but it is said to be octa-core and will possess a clocking speed of 1.6GHz.
The RAM will be 4GB and the internal storage 32GB, though a 64GB variant may also be released. The cameras in the rear and the front will be identical 16MP sensors and the battery, 3000mAh. The communication suite will be complete and charging through the micro USB port will all be present.
The Samsung Galaxy A6+, will however, be the device with much better specs. The processor will be the Qualcomm Snapdragon 450SoC. Its clocking speed is being mentioned as 1.8GHz and this phone will come fitted with a 3500mAh battery and a dual camera setup in the rear. As far as the RAM/ROM combination is concerned, there are going to be 2 variants; 3GB+32GB and 4GB+64GB.
The rear camera arrangement in the Galaxy A6+ will be 16MP + 5MP and will sport the Live Focus feature and the bokeh effect that one finds in higher end phones.
Both the devices will come with the Android Oreo version 8 pre-loaded. The digital assistant Bixby will also be a part of the phones but except the voice component Bixby Voice. Bixby Vision, Bixby Home and Bixby Reminders will all be there.
The phones are likely to hit the markets in June, a month from now and will be sold in 4 color variants Blue, Black, Gold, and Lavender, but the prices have not been revealed so far.
