Samsung is due to launch the Galaxy A6 and A6+, the company’s upcoming mid-end smartphones. Now, a tipster on Twitter has leaked the specifications of the two phones. According to the leak, both the handsets will be heavily inspired by the Galaxy A8 and A8+ in terms of design and features.
Apparently, the Galaxy A6 will sport a 5.6-inch FHD+ (2280 x 1080) Infinity display. The screen could feature a pixel density of 441 ppi and an aspect ratio of 18:5:9. It will reportedly be powered by an octa-core Exynos 7870 processor coupled with 3GB RAM and 32GB internal storage. The Galaxy A6+, on the other hand, will be powered by a Snapdragon 450 processor paired with 4GB RAM and 32GB internal storage. The device will come with a 6.0-inch Infinity display with the same resolution as the Galaxy A6.
It goes without saying that we should take this rumour with a pinch of salt because there’s a good chance that they aren’t real. The two phones were previously spotted on the US FCC, and as per the information, the Galaxy A6+ might actually come with a Snapdragon 625 processor. The listings also reveal that the upcoming phones will run Samsung Experience 9.0, which is based on Android Oreo.
