Samsung Galaxy A6 and A6 Plus officially unveiled

Samsung is set to introduce two new additions to its A-series group of smartphones. The A-series is best known for housing Samsung mid-range devices and as we have seen with the Samsung Galaxy A5, Galaxy A7, Galaxy A8 and Galaxy A9, the upcoming pair (Galaxy A6 and A6 Plus) will surely do better than preceding members of the ‘Galaxy A’ family.

As with every new smartphone from Samsung (and every other OEMs), there is always something unique a smartphone brings to the table. For the upcoming Galaxy A6 and Galaxy A6 Plus, they bring quite a handful of new additions.

First off, the devices have been structured, quite beautifully, in accordance to trending 18:9 aspect ratio design. In actuality, they are even narrower as their aspect ratio is measured 18.5:9. When compared to earlier released members in the series, the Galaxy A6 and A6 Plus duo are slimmer and more comfortable in the hands.

To serve as icing on the cake, the Galaxy A6 and the bigger version, Galaxy A6 Plus both features Facial Recognition unlock technology and Samsung’s native AI-powered personal assistant, ‘Bixby Home’.
