Samsung Galaxy A6 Plus: Top 5 Features

1. 16MP+5MP Dual-Camera: The feature that stands out from the rest is the imaging capability of the smartphone. The device is designed specifically, keeping in mind all the selfie freaks around. The device offers a 24MP f/1.9 camera for selfies and video-calling. While megapixels aren’t everything if you intend to capture selfies in low-light conditions, the device is loaded with a front-facing LED flash too. At the back, the Samsung Galaxy A6 Plus comes with dual 16+5MP f/1.7 rear sensors. The secondary 5MP unit can be used for depth effects and refocusing the image.

2. Super AMOLED Infinity Screen: The second important feature of the Galaxy A6 Plus is its Infinity display design. The 6-inch Full HD+ Super AMOLED display with almost-no bezels offers a top-notch visual experience that flows seamlessly over the edges. The Infinity Display design is coupled with an 18.5:9 aspect ratio which allows uninterrupted, immersive experiences while gaming or watching videos. Also, the smartphone has the Always On Display mode.

3. Octa-Core Processor: Moving over, another important aspect of the Samsung Galaxy A6 Plus is its performance. The smartphone is armed with an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 chipset paired with Adreno 506 GPU which delivers smooth sailing.

4. Android 8.0 Oreo:  The fourth standout feature is its software.

5. Fingerprint Reader: The fifth key feature of the Samsung Galaxy A6 Plus is its security. The device ships with a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor which is slotted below the back camera module.
