Samsung is rumored to be working on a slew of smartphones to be launched this year and the Galaxy A6 is one of them. We recently came across reports regarding the Galaxy A6 and Galaxy a6+ smartphones. It was said that these smartphones will be released in select markets such as Russia, Europe and the Middle East. And, we have also come across these smartphones hitting the benchmark and WiFi certification websites.
Now, the Galaxy A6 and Galaxy A6+ have been spotted at the FCC, the certification website in the U.S. Well, this does not indicate that the North American launch of these phones could happen soon as the Galaxy A8 and A8+ those were also spotted at the FCC haven't been released in the market. The FCC certification could also indicate that the launch could be on the cards for a few South American markets where Samsung releases affordable smartphones.
Given that these upcoming Samsung smartphones have been spotted at the FCC, it is likely that their announcement might happen in a few weeks from now. However, it might also take a few months for these smartphones to be made available for purchase.
While the exact launch date of the Galaxy A6 and Galaxy A6+ smartphones remain unknown, we know a few key specifications of these smartphones. From the leaked Geekbench listing, the Galaxy A6 is believed to arrive with an Exynos 7860 SoC paired with 3GB RAM while the Plus variant could feature a Snapdragon 625 SoC and a larger 4GB RAM.
Both the smartphones are believed to be unveiled with Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box. And, there is a belief that these phones could receive the Android P update probably with the Project Treble support in the future.
The pricing of the Galaxy A6 and Galaxy A6+ smartphones remain unknown for now. The leaked specifications suggest that these smartphones could replace the Galaxy A5 and Galaxy A7 smartphones. And, we have no clues if these smartphones will feature the Infinity Display with 18.5:9 aspect ratio as the Galaxy A8 and Galaxy A8+ smartphones launched late last year. Anyways, we need to wait for an official confirmation from Samsung regarding the Galaxy A6 duo.
