South Korean device maker Samsung recently announced that the Samsung Galaxy A6 will hit the UK market this summer. Launched last May along with the larger Galaxy A6 Plus, the Galaxy A6 is already available in a number of markets in Europe, Asia and Latin America. The smartphone maker further stated that its range of mid-range mobile devices is being offered by selected UK affiliate retailers, and interested consumers in the country can choose from the device's three available color options, including black, gold and lavender. Samsung did not announce pricing information for the Galaxy A6 in the UK, although it has been mentioned in previous reports that the device will ship in Europe at a price of $ 309.
The Samsung Galaxy A6 is powered by the Exynos 7870 chipset, which consists of an octa-core ARM Cortex A53 64-bit CPU running at a maximum clock speed of 1.6 GHz. The device contains either 3 GB or 4 GB of RAM and is available in hardware variants that include 32 GB or 64 GB of internal flash memory. The internal memory of the handset can be expanded with a microSD card with a capacity of up to 256 GB. The smartphone has a 5.6-inch Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 1480 x 720 pixels and an aspect ratio of 18.5: 9. The device has a single rear-view camera that comes with a 16-megapixel sensor while the front camera has a 16 megapixel module with a 1: 1.9 aperture. To keep the light on, the handset contains a 3,000mAh battery and the smartphone also supports near field communication, which means that this device can pay for the goods paid by Samsung Pay.
The Samsung Galaxy A6 comes preinstalled with Android 8.0 Oreo, although the device manufacturer's proprietary skin runs on the Google operating system. Samsung's proprietary software adds features that may be useful to the consumer. These include Samsung's virtual assistant Bixby and a feature called an app-pair. You can select two applications that will open simultaneously in a split screen view. The Galaxy A6 also features face recognition and a fingerprint scanner on the back of the handset to unlock the device.
