Specs comparison: Galaxy A6+ vs Galaxy A8+ (2018)


Last updated: May 2nd, 2018 at 10:24 UTC+02:00

The successor to the Galaxy A7 (2017) has arrived and it’s called the Galaxy A6+. Samsung has switched up the naming scheme this year for its mid-range lineup as it has made significant improvements to the Galaxy A series. The improvements have trickled down from the Galaxy A8 and Galaxy A8+ (2018) which is why the new Galaxy A6 handsets feature flat Infinity Display panels as well.
