Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy A6 lineup of Android mid-rangers has been detailed in numerous new high-resolution renders and two videos depicting the 3D models of the Galaxy A6 and Galaxy A6 Plus, all of which can be seen below. The concepts were authored by French industry insider Steve Hemmerstoffer, better known by his Twitter handle @OnLeaks, with the two smartphones being modeled based on the latest information about Samsung’s next two mid-range offerings.
The handsets identified by the model numbers SM-A600FN and SM-A605G are meant to succeed the Galaxy A5 (2017) series and debut a number of new additions and changes to Samsung’s value-oriented mobile formula. The Galaxy A6 is said to be 149.9 x 71.5 x 7.8mm in size, whereas the Galaxy A6 Plus should measure in at approximately 160.2 x 76.2 x 8.3mm, with both apparently being equipped with Infinity Display panels, Samsung’s elongated Super AMOLED modules with an aspect ratio of 18.5:9 which first debuted with the Galaxy S8 family in early 2017. The Galaxy A6 is expected to be powered by the Exynos 7870 chip running at up to 1.6GHz, whereas the Galaxy A6 Plus is rumored to leverage Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 625 silicon. The former model is believed to be featuring 3GB of RAM, whereas its larger counterpart should ship with 4GB of RAM and both are said to be transitioning the mid-range product family to a USB Type-C connector, scrapping the old Micro-USB port in the process.
The Galaxy A6 will reportedly boast a 5.6-inch screen, whereas its sibling should offer a panel with a 6-inch diagonal, as indicated by their reported dimensions and image formats. While recent rumors also mentioned Samsung working on the Galaxy J8 and the Galaxy J8 Plus, the same source claims the new Galaxy J-series offerings may actually be the rebranded versions of the Galaxy A6 and Galaxy A6 Plus meant to launch in India and possibly a number of other markets. Samsung is likely to announce its next mid-rangers in the coming weeks, with their predecessors now already being fifteen months old.
