Samsung's affordable, Infinity Display-toting Galaxy A8 has finally landed in Australia

The South Korean giant is yet to officially launch the devices though.

"At Samsung we are committed to providing our consumers with the very best smartphone experience, while meeting their practical needs", said Junho Park, Vice President of Global Product Planning, Mobile Communications Business at Samsung Electronics.

Oath and Samsung will share the ad revenue, though specific terms of the deal have not been revealed.

Apparently, Samsung Galaxy A6 will cost somewhere between $360 and $410. Additionally, pricing of the the telephones was leaked; certain specs are additionally revealed by the escape.




Samsung's budget smartphones aren't usually very impressive when it comes to value for money, so we expect the Galaxy A6 to be priced around Rs.15,000 when it arrives in India.

Looking at the pictures, the overall design of the phone looks similar to one another. Both the phones come with Infinity Display, which is already seen on a lot of earlier Samsung phones. When it comes to connectivity, the Galaxy A6 duo offers features like Cat. However, the specs sheet varies a bit. It pushes a Full HD+ resolution of 2,220 x 1080 in an 18.5:9 aspect ratio. That's not really surprising, as the Galaxy A6 is expected to be launched as the Galaxy J8 in select markets.

For optics, the Galaxy A6 is equipped with a single 16-megapixel f/1.7 aperture rear camera. On the front, the larger Galaxy A6 Plus will reportedly boast a 24-megapixel selfie cam with an f/1.9 aperture and an LED flash. While it is not yet confirmed, it is possible that the Exynos variant of the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 will receive the Exynos 9810 processor. Storage is also expandable supporting microSD of up to 256GB. While the Galaxy A6 storage can be expanded up to up to 256 GB. The A6+ gets a slightly beefier 1.8 GHz octa-core processor, and the exact same RAM/storage versions as its smaller sibling. A battery will power the internals, while the Galaxy a-6 + will probably find yourself a 3500mAh unit of the Galaxy A6. So far there's no news yet on Malaysian pricing and availability.
