Samsung is yet to confirm a US release for the Galaxy A6 even though it has been almost a month since it officially announced the Galaxy A6 and Galaxy A6+. There was a rumor recently which suggested that AT&T would carry the Galaxy A6 in the United States and while evidence has yet to surface to support that claim, we can now exclusively confirm that Sprint will launch the Galaxy A6 in the United States.

Galaxy A6 coming to the United States

The Galaxy A6 is a proper mid-range smartphone and Samsung has made it an enticing option for customers by adding features like the Infinity Display. It features a 5.6-inch 720×1480 pixel resolution flat Infinity Display with 18.5:9 aspect ratio.

The device has a solid feel to it while the smooth curves make it more comfortable to grip the device. The fingerprint sensor is located below the 16-megapixel f/1.7 camera at the back while the front has a 16-megapixel camera with an adjustable LED flash. The handset is powered by a 1.6GHz quad-core processor with up to 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. Configurations vary by market.

Samsung has also brought over some features from its premium handsets. The Galaxy A6 offers Face Recognition, Dolby Atmos optimized audio and Samsung Pay. Bixby Vision, Home and Reminder are onboard as well. All of this is backed up with a 3,000mAh battery and Android 8.0 Oreo.

When the Galaxy A6 was officially announced, Samsung said that the handset would be released in select markets across Europe, Asia and Latin America. It didn’t say anything about North America at that time.

We can confirm that the Galaxy A6 will be coming to Sprint in the United States as firmware is already available for the handset, version A600PVPU0ARF1 to be precise. Sprint is yet to reveal, though, when it’s going to start selling this handset but it’s only a matter of time now before the Galaxy A6 becomes available Stateside.
