New Samsung Galaxy A6 and Galaxy A6+ Now in the Philippines


Samsung Philippines is bringing a couple of new mid-range Galaxy smartphones in the local market beginning today and those are the Galaxy A6 and A6+. What's unique about these two is that they both feature an Infinity Display similar to what we see in the company's latest flagship smartphones, as well as the voice smart assistant Bixby.

But apart from the Infinity Display and Bixby inclusions, the Galaxy A6 and Galaxy A6+ have a lot of differences between their respective specs sheets. The A6+ variant has few "pluses" right out of the packaging. The display resolution, for one, is much bigger and much sharper than the A6. The bigger brother sports Full HD+ versus the other's HD+ resolution, both have Super AMOLED type of display and an aspect ratio equivalent to 18.5:9.

The photography department is also another section where the two differ. The A6 has 16MP both in front and rear faces, while the A6+ gets a dual camera (16MP + 5MP) set up on the rear with the selfie camera pegged at 24MP. Those should provide the best possible qualities of photo whether captured in well-lit or low light environment.

Even in processor inside them are not the same. For the Galaxy A6, users will have an octa-core Exynos 7870 chip clocked at 1.6GHz paired with 3GB of RAM and a Mali T830 GPU chip. On the other hand, the Galaxy A6+ is equipped with a Snapdragon 450 processor working alongside 4GB or RAM and Adreno 506 GPU. Both will come with 32GB internal storage that can be expanded via its dedicated microSD card slot.

One of the other big differences between the two is the battery size. The non-Plus variant has 3000mAh embedded in it while the bigger brother is equipped with 3500mAh battery pack.
