Recently Samsung SM-A600FN and SM-A605G surfaced on Geekbench earlier, pointing to the a Galaxy A6 and Galaxy A6+ smartphones being prepared for a launch. According to SamMobile, the Korean company will indeed launch these devices, but only at three markets – Europe, Russia, and Middle East.
The Samsung Galaxy A6 is reportedly coming with Exynos 7870 chipset, seen in the Galaxy A3 (2017) and some phones from the more affordable J series. The SoC is coupled with 3 GB RAM and is running Android 8.0 Oreo, most likely with Samsung Experience UI 9.0 on top.
The Galaxy A6+ was shown with Snapdragon 625 and 4 GB RAM on Geekbench, which is a surprise, since Qualcomm chipsets are not common for Samsung phones outside the US. The first phone in more than two years to sport a Snapdragon became the ultra-affordable Galaxy J2 (2018) that arrived in stores in the opening days of 2018.
Pricing is obviously going to vary from market to market, but we are expecting the Galaxy A6 phones to be positioned in the lower spectrum of the midranger segment, as hinted by their year-old chipsets.
