Samsung announced last week that it had released the Galaxy A6 in South Korea. The company didn’t say anything about the Galaxy A6+ at that time so it wasn’t unclear if that model was going to be released in the country as well.
The company has now launched the Galaxy Jean in its home country. It’s not a different device rather it’s a rebadged Galaxy A6+. The device has been listed on Samsung’s official website which mentions that its available from South Korean mobile carrier KT.
A rebadged Galaxy A6+
The Galaxy A6+ has model number SM-A605 and the Galaxy Jean also has the same model number. This confirms that the Galaxy Jean is nothing more than a rebadged version of the Galaxy A6+. Why Samsung chose to call it the Galaxy Jean even though it has already released the Galaxy A6 remains a mystery.
The device features a 6-inch 2220 x 1080 pixel resolution 18.5:9 aspect ratio display and is powered by a 1.8GHz octacore processor. There’s a 16-megapixel f/1.7 aperture rear camera coupled with a 5-megapixel f/1.9 aperture sensor at the back. The device also features a 24-megapixel f/1.9 aperture front camera (check out some real-life selfies here). The fingerprint sensor is at the back below the dual camera setup.
There is one major difference between the Galaxy A6+ and the Galaxy Jean. The Galaxy A6+ has 4GB RAM and 64GB of storage whereas this device has 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. External expansion is possible up to 256GB using a microSD card. Customers in South Korea can purchase the Galaxy Jean from KT for 440,000 won or around $400 in Black and Lavender colors.
