Samsung Galaxy A6s – 128GB ROM, 6GB RAM, Snapdragon 660 and 6” Screen

Samsung has now become world’s number one smartphone brand and left behind Apple and Huawei by launching jaw-dropping smartphones one after another. And 2018 is also a great year for Samsung thanks to its most powerful flagships such as Samsung Galaxy S9, Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus and a couple of days old flagship Samsung Galaxy Note 9. We are getting ready to say goodbye to 2018 but Samsung didn’t stop revealing smartphones. On October 24th, Samsung launched another handset named Samsung Galaxy A6s in Australia alongside A9s.

The latest, greatest and coolest smartphone is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 660 Chipset and it is the company’s first device manufactured by another company – or its first ODM (original design manufacturer). The key highlights of Galaxy A6s are related to 12MP + 2MP rear cameras, 6-inches Super AMOLED screen, Snapdragon 660 Chipset, and a massive amount of battery – 6GB. Moreover, 64GB/128GB of onboard memory, 12MP front camera, and 3300mAh non-removable battery is also a part of Samsung Galaxy A6s.

The handset houses a super-gorgeous and eye-catching 6-inches Super AMOLED screen with a maximum resolution of 1080 x 2160 pixels, 6GB of RAM, 64GB/128GB of ROM, 12MP + 2MP rear and 12MP FaceTime sensor. Other Samsung Galaxy A6s specifications in Australia are highlighted below.

Release Date and Price

Samsung Galaxy A6s release date in Australia isn’t decided, for now, but it’s most likely to arrive on shelves before November is out. It’s just our educated guess as final and accurate details are still blurred. We will let you know further as soon as we hear more.

However, Samsung Galaxy A6s alongside Galaxy A9S is up for pre-orders in China on whereas other Asian countries and continents are on waiting.

As far as Samsung Galaxy A6s Price in Australia is concerned, 6GB/64GB variant is expected to set users back around AU$362 and 6GB/128GB variant will go for a whopping AU$442 (after quick conversion from CNY to AUD).

Design and Display

The Samsung Galaxy A6s does extraordinary well against its rivals with an impressive glass body, especially when it comes to a mid-range smartphone build. Users will have five dazzling color options to choose from – Black, White, Blue, Pink, and Red. The rear camera is holding its position vertically at the top left corner whereas a fingerprint scanner is mounted at the top center position. The rest of the rear is smooth and flat. The bezels are quite visible around the screen but it’s not really difficult to hide them.

On the front side of the smartphone, you’ll see the exquisite size of the screen which is 6-inches with an aspect ratio of 18:9. The screen’s technology is based on Super AMOLED – hence a fully bright and good color screen is expected. Onto a screen resolution, it’s well-supported by 1080 x 2160 pixels resolution at 402 PPI density.

Camera and Battery

Now jumping on a camera department, a camera of Samsung Galaxy A6s is quite a decent mid-range offering which includes a popular rear dual feature. The FaceTime sensor is a 12MP whereas outback, you’ll see a combo of another 12MP camera accompanied by a 2MP depth focus sensor. We didn’t hear anything about a camera performance yet, but it’s expected to capture detailed and colorful images both in low-light and bright light. Most important of all, one would be able to record 2160p videos at 30fps.

Talking about Galaxy A6s battery, Samsung Galaxy A6s is backed by a mediocre amount of battery. With 3300mAh non-removable battery, one can easily go through an entire day with mixed activities e.g. watching videos, movies, playing games for a short period of time or browsing the Internet. You will have no wireless charging, instead, you’ll get a quick charge on it.

Software and Hardware

Inside the attention-grabbing body, there is an Octa-core SoC which, by the way, is a mid-range one. It’s powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 Chipset which is partnered with 6GB of RAM for smooth and silky performance while playing heavy games or working on multitasks. It’s most likely that switching between apps, playing games or loading several apps simultaneously, everything will be incredibly smooth.

The Adreno 512 GPU manages a graphical department quite well and 64GB or 128GB of onboard memory lets you store loads and loads of data even one can store a bunch of movies. Alarm! The onboard storage is expendable further up to 256GB with a help of microSD card.

As for software, Samsung reveals that it’s going to run on outdated Android 8.0 Oreo operating system but sooner will start getting updates of Android 9.0 Pie.

Final Words

Leaving final words about Samsung Galaxy A6s is too prompt but whether some accepts or deny, it’s an all-around smartphone which falls in a mid-range. The device is backed by a quality-oriented camera, long-lasting battery, the fastest processor for managing to multitask without any hiccup and an immersive screen, providing excellent cinematic experience. All in all, if you don’t mind spending a little more, it’s a smartphone to get your hands on.
