Samsung is planning to expand its Galaxy A series offering to include two new models – Galaxy A6 and Galaxy S6+. These two smartphones will join the 2018 Galaxy A8 and Galaxy A8+ smartphones and might act as the successors to the Galaxy A5 (2017) and the Galaxy A7 (2017) models.
Sammobile reports that the Galaxy A6 and Galaxy A6+ smartphones will be launched in Europe, Russia and the Middle East. It also notes that at least the Galaxy A6 will be unveiled soon since the smartphone has appeared on the support page of Samsung’s website. Now, the devices have appeared once again in the form of unofficial renders, revealing what these handsets might look like when they are released.
The renders for the upcoming Galaxy A6 and Galaxy A6+ were posted by MySmartPrice in collaboration with popular leakster OnLeaks. The renders based on CAD design of the upcoming smartphones show the device from every possible angle. It reveals that both the models will borrow design cues from the Galaxy A8 and Galaxy A8+. The Galaxy A6 and A6+ are said to be 7.8mm and 8.3mm thick. It is, however, not clear whether these devices will offer glass back or stick with metal casing.
The Galaxy A6 is expected to feature a 5.6-inch display while the Galaxy A6+ will offer a larger 6-inch display. Both the phones will adopt Samsung’s InfinityDisplay design with support for taller 18.5:9 aspect ratio. They are expected to be powered by Samsung’s Exynos 7870 SoC, an octa-core CPU based on 14nm architecture. Both the smartphones will also differ in terms of memory with the Galaxy A6 supporting 3GB RAM and the A6+ offering 4GB of RAM.

The renders also show that these devices come with microUSB port as opposed to USB Type-C port seen on the new Galaxy A8 model. This leads to a speculation that these devices will launch as Galaxy J8 and Galaxy J8+ in some markets. There is no word on their actual launch date or pricing just yet but Samsung will be targeting smartphones from Chinese brands with these devices.
