The two new smartphones have debuted alongside the previously announced Galaxy A70 and Galaxy A80 in China.

To begin with, the Galaxy A60 features a 6.3-inch Infinity-O LCD display of FHD+ resolution, with a screen-to-body ratio of 91.8%. The punch hole in the top left corner, which reportedly is smaller than that of the Galaxy A8s, packs a 32MP camera for selfies.

The Galaxy A60 comes with 6GB of RAM and 128GB internal storage.
