Samsung has launched a new pair of midrangers, the Galaxy A6 and A6 +, with infinity displays and mediocre internal specifications. Like the Galaxy S9 and S9 + pair, the company has split Galaxy A6 into two variants that differ in both size and specifications.

The design of the A6 duo is almost identical to A8 and A8 + brothers and souls – launched around four months ago. A6 +, as the name suggests, has better specifications than A6 and also comes with a larger footprint.

Let’s look at what this couple has to offer,

Design & Display

Galaxy A6 +

 

Galaxy A6 + is the bigger brother or sister and has better specifications. The pair seems to follow the current trimmed-bezels trend and also resembles Samsung’s latest midrange design theme. In addition, it also has IP68 certification for dust and waterproof to 1.5 m for 30 minutes. The fingerprint sensor is located at the back right under the dual camera.

This setup also displays the infinite displays of Samsung. The screen has pretty cut edges, but has no curved edges like the company’s recent flagships. It has a 6-inch Super AMOLED screen with a resolution of 1080 x 2220 pixels and a height aspect ratio of 18.5:

The Super AMOLED screen measures diagonally 5.6 inches and has a resolution of 720 x 1440 pixels. Aspect ratio is 18: 9 and ~ 287 pixel density. Both phones have Always-on-display function and also an unspecified version of Corning Gorilla Glass protection.

Camera & Software

The larger telephone in the family has a dual camera setup consisting of 16 MP f / 1.7 primary shooter and a 5 MP f / 1.9 secondary shooter. The secondary sensor of the Galaxy A6 + enables live background blur and a realistic bokeh effect. In addition, the rear lenses also support PDAF. It can only record videos up to 1080p at 30 fps.

Selfie camera is a 24 MP unit with an aperture size of f / 1.9 and also has its own LED flash for selfies with low light. Not surprisingly, it comes with Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box with Samsung’s own TouchWiz layer on top.
