Here comes Samsung with the Galaxy A6+ assault
Samsung, everybody’s favourite South Korean juggernaut, continues to be a huge force in the smartphone market. The company dominates Android sales when it comes to flagships, but it’s a whole other story in the mid-range game. While Samsung doesn’t really do badly in the mid-range market, it never does really well either. Despite this, they’ve got two new upcoming mid-rangers, and today one of them received its Wi-fi certification.
Those of you with sharp memories will remember the Galaxy A6+ (2018) as the device that briefly appeared on Samsung’s official website. This one seems to be the exact same model too, as it also has the SM-A605FN/DS model number. The DS in the name means we’ll have dual sim capabilites on the device. As for other specs, we expect the A6+ to come with a Snapdragon 625 chip, as well as 4GB of RAM and probably Android Oreo.
As usual, the Samsung Galaxy A6 and A6+ will definitely see stiff competition from other companies. Xiaomi has all but dominated the mid-range market, and Motorola isn’t doing too shabby either. The A6 and A6+ will have their place as a mid-range device from a big company, though that’s usually all they have. We’ll wait and see how things pan out, but we don’t expect the A6 and A6+ to have much of an impact.
