Samsung Galaxy A6 Key Specs and Features

  • 5.6-inch, Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen, 1480 X 720 pixels (294 ppi)
  • Octa-core Exynos 7870 CPU with 3GB/4GB RAM
  • 32GB/64GB built-in storage, up to 256GB with a memory card
  • 16MP rear camera and a 16MP front camera
  • 4G LTE
  • Fingerprint sensor (rear)
  • 3, 000mAh non removable Li-Po battery

Design and Display

It’s quite a solid metal smartphone. It sports an 18.5:9 aspect ratio alongside a bezel-less display. The antenna lines can be noticed close to the bottom and top of the rear panel. You would also find the fingerprint sensor at the bottom of the centrally positioned camera towards the top of the rear panel while the front camera, speaker and other sensors are at the top of the screen.

Like most of Samsung Galaxy smartphones, the Samsung Galaxy A6 comes with an AMOLED display. With minimal bezels around, the display is quite crisp and attractive with a size of 5.6-inch. There are vibrant colours on display with nice viewing angle and a 1480 X 720 pixels resolution. You also have a fair visibility in sunlight and it shouldn’t be a problem using your phone outdoors.

Battery and Camera

As for the battery inside, the Samsung Galaxy A6 (2018) comes with a 3, 000mAh battery that can take you through the day on light usage. You also get to charge through a USB Type-C port, although, there is no word if fast charge is available or not.

The smartphone features a 16MP rear camera, while at the front you also have a 16MP camera with a f/1.9 aperture and a f/1.7 on the former. This is a nice arrangement for a mid-range device.

Hardware and Software

At the core of things, you will find Samsung’s own Exynos 7870 chipset with eight cores running at 1.6GHz max. This is not a bad idea for a mid-range smartphone which should give you quite a smooth performance and quality gaming giving a Mali-T830 MP1 GPU.

The smartphone has 3GB and 4GB RAM variants that comes with 32GB storage space while the latter has 64GB internal storage space. Like the bunch of other 2018 smartphones, the Samsung Galaxy A6 (2018) runs on Android 8.0 Oreo from the factory.

Pricing and Availability

The smartphone will be available later this month for about 97, 000 naira depending on the location and the deal.
