Samsung has finally decided to unveil the Galaxy A6 and Galaxy S6+ to the world after months of leaks. The pair’s biggest common highlight is its flagship-level Super AMOLED Infinity Display which boasts of an 18.5:9 aspect ratio.
The Galaxy A6 and Galaxy A6+ can thus be considered budget alternatives to the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+, except the screen doesn’t curve at the sides for a completely bezel-less look. Still, the phones have plenty to offer. Both get its hands on an adjustable front LED flash unit, low-aperture lens to capture better shots at night, and Dolby Atmos support.
The Galaxy A6+ improves on its smaller sibling with a dual-camera setup consisting of a 16MP and 5MP combination. A Live Focus mode lets users adjust the depth of field and bokeh effect before or after the photo has been clicked. Blur patterns can be customized in various shapes like hearts and stars.
Both fingerprint scanning and face recognition are available as biometric security options. There’s also an App Pair feature which simply allows the owner to open 2 apps at once. Samsung’s Always On display and Bixby smart assistant are present as well.
