We already assumed it from the rumors, but today we have been able to confirm that the two devices have inherited the best of the Galaxy S and the Galaxy J. Especially at the design level. We find two phones with a metallic chassis, quite stylized and rounded edges to facilitate holding. The best, without a doubt, is that they have an infinite screen with hardly the presence of frames on both sides if we look at them from the front. The Samsung Galaxy A6 has a size of 5.6 inches and a resolution of 1,480 x 720. The panel of the Galaxy A6 + grows to 6 inches. Also the resolution, which is 2,220 x 1,080 pixels. It should be noted that both have Super AMOLED technology.
The most marked difference between the two is found at the rear. And is that while the standard model offers a single 16 megapixel camera, the Plus has a double sensor. This one has a resolution of 16 and 5 megapixels and an aperture of f / 1.9, instead of f / 1.7. On the other hand, Samsung has also put a lot of emphasis on the front camera, although the Plus version takes the crown. The Galaxy A6 equips a 16-megapixel one, the A6 + is 24-megapixel. Both have an LED flash for selfies at night. It is clear that the South Korean is aware that this feature is very important for users who purchase this type of mid-range models.
Medium power and battery with fast charge
The Samsung Galaxy A6 is powered by a processor from the house, by an Exynos 7870, which is accompanied by 3 or 4 GB of RAM. The Galaxy A6 + has one from Qualcomm. In his case, it is a Snapdragon 450, very common in the mid-range. This model also offers 3 or 4 GB of RAM to be chosen by the user. Regarding the internal storage capacity, both arrive with 32 or 64 GB with the possibility of expansion through the use of microSD cards of up to 400 GB.
With regard to the rest of the specifications, they have a 3,000 and 3,500 mAh battery with fast charging. Thus, it will be possible to charge them in a short time. The Galaxy A6 and A6 + also offer a fingerprint reader, Bixby assistant and the possibility of making payments through Samsung Pay. Another of their points in favor is that they include Dolby Atmos technology, which improves sound quality, both when listening to music through headphones and with the external speaker.
Price and availability
At the moment it is unknown when the two devices will go on sale. The company has confirmed that they will be available in May, so we imagine it is a matter of days or weeks. What we do know is that they will reach Europe and other markets such as Asia or Latin America. The price is also a mystery. It is possible that the Samsung Galaxy A6 starts from 300 euros and the A6 + from 360. However, as soon as we know the information with the exact details we will update the news. The normal thing is that they also reach the operators' catalogs. These are smartphones that can have a great impact to acquire through Vodafone, Orange or Movistar.
