Samsung Galaxy A6 /A6+ Specifications, Features and Price

Samsung has unveiled two new affordable smartphones and both of them comes with AMOLED screens – a rare feature in budget phones as they usually have LCD displays – with very small bezels, run on the latest Android 8.0 Oreo and come with a focus on camera quality. We are talking of the new Galaxy A6 and the Galaxy A6+.

Both new Galaxies comes with very similar design, except for the differences in size as the A6 comes with a 5.6-inch display, while the A6+ features a 6.0-inch screen.

Now, aside their amazing designs, the duo, despite being more affordable devices, they come with dedicated LED flash attached to their front-facing cameras. An area of interest for selfie enthusiasts.

The most notable difference between the A6 and the A6+, however, might be that the bigger A6+ also comes with dual rear cameras and the second one is used to enable the Live Focus effect for blurred backgrounds in photos, a look similar to what you get on professional cameras. It’s a great thing to see this advanced feature in a phone that is not so expensive.


The other benefit of buying the bigger A6+ is its larger battery: it has a 3,500mAh cell, while the regular A6 features a 3,000mAh battery. Both phones also come with NFC and Samsung Pay for convenient wallet-free transaction.
