Over the years, if there’s any one company that showed consistency in the smartphone market, then it’s Samsung. Despite competition from Apple, Samsung remains a highly influential player in the smartphone flagship segment. But the mid-range sector is a whole other story. They’re neither the leaders nor the losers. Despite this, they continue rolling out mid-rangers from time to time. Today, their upcoming budget phone. the Samsung Galaxy A6+ received it’s Wi-fi certification, take a look.
For those of you who remember, the Galaxy A6+ (2018) briefly appeared on Samsung’s official website, and also was certified by FCC earlier. What’s interesting is the model number of the smartphone matches the one that appeared on the website- SM-A605FN/DS. The DS in the model indicates that it is a dual sim smartphone. The A6+ will most likely be powered by a Snapdragon 625 chip coupled with 4GB of RAM.
A day ago, the phone was spotted in a HTML 5 test, which revealed that it will have a tall-aspect Infinity Display. An infinity display is Samsung’s iteration of a bezel-less display. This synonym was introduced when Samsung came out with the Galaxy S8 and S8+ last year. They went on to use it for the Galaxy Note as well as their flagship Galaxy s9+.
The non plus model, i.e Galaxy A6 is will have a 5.6 inch 18:9 2220x1080px display, and an Exynos 7870 chipset with 3GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage. Both the devices are expected to run on Android Oreo. For now, this is all we know regarding the specs. But let’s hope that Samsung surprises with something special.
As usual, Samsung will definitely face stiff competition from Chinese OEM’s in the market. Xiaomi is already dominating the market, Motorola isn’t doing bad either. The A6 and A6+ are mid-range smartphones with everyday specs, nothing less, nothing more. They won’t have much of an impact considering the fierce competition among various players, regardless let’s wait and watch how things turn out.
