Samsung has quietly listed its Galaxy A6 and Galaxy A6+ smartphones on its official website. The duo adds to the mid-range segment and brings major upgrades in terms of the display and hardware. The biggest change is the addition of Galaxy S8-like narrow bezel Infinity Display. The Galaxy A6 and A6+ also stand out for running Android Oreo out-of-the-box. Both models are available in color choices of Black, Gold, Blue, and Lavender.
The two models were reportedly listed on Samsung‘s Indonesia website. However, at time of writing, the listing appears to have been taken down. As GSMArena reports, the smartphones will be released in early May in select markets in Europe, Asia, and Latin America. This will be followed by a launch in South Korea, Africa, and China. It is unclear as to when the duo will arrive in India.
