Samsung releases the Galaxy A6 in South Korea

Samsung launched the Galaxy A6 and Galaxy A6+ last month. They’re mid-range smartphones with a sleek design and powerful cameras. Samsung is gradually rolling out the devices in more markets across the globe. The company today announced the launch of the Galaxy A6 in its home market of South Korea.

The Galaxy A6 features a metal unibody design with smooth curves which offer a comfortable grip. It’s yet another mid-range device from the company to feature a flat Infinity Display. The device has a 5.6-inch 720×1480 pixel resolution 18.5:9 aspect ratio display.

Features from Samsung’s premium handsets like Face Recognition, Dolby Atmos optimized Audio and Samsung Pay are onboard as well and so is support for Bixby Home, Vision and Reminder. All of this is powered by a 3,000mAh battery.

Samsung has now started selling the Galaxy A6 in South Korea. It’s going to be available in black, gold and lavender colors for 396,000 won or $353.
