It appears that the Galaxy A6 release may not be that far off as a support page for the handset has now been spotted on Samsung’s own website. It was revealed not too long ago that the Galaxy A6 and the Galaxy A6+ are among the new devices that Samsung has in the pipeline for this year. We have also exclusively confirmed that these handsets will be released in Europe, Russia and the Middle East.
The Galaxy A6 and the Galaxy A6+ were most recently spotted at the FCC for the requisite certification. While that doesn’t confirm a North America launch for these devices, it’s possible that the FCC certification is being obtained because the Galaxy A6 and Galaxy A6+ may eventually be launched in South America as well.

The FCC listing contained screenshots which revealed that the Galaxy A6 and Galaxy A6+ will feature a flat Infinity Display much like the Galaxy A8 and Galaxy A8+ (2018). They won’t have a physical home button courtesy of the 18.5:9 aspect ratio display. The inference drawn from these screenshots is that the display resolution will be 720p and 1080p for the Galaxy A6 and Galaxy A6+ respectively.
The first support page for the Galaxy A6+ bearing model number SM-A605FN has been spotted on Samsung Poland’s website. While the support page doesn’t confirm a lot of the device, it does reveal that there’s going to be a dual-SIM variant of this device.
There isn’t a lot of information about these devices that is known for sure at this point in time. Their listings that surfaced on benchmark and certification websites over the past couple of weeks have suggested that the Galaxy A6 will be powered by an Exynos 7870 processor with 3GB of RAM whereas the Galaxy A6+ will feature a Snapdragon 625 processor with 4GB of RAM.
Samsung is yet to confirm when it’s going to launch the Galaxy A6 and the Galaxy A6+ but much like the new handsets that the company will release this year, we can expect them to come with Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box.
