Samsung Galaxy A60 Receives Certification from Wi-Fi Alliance, Expected to Launch Soon


The Wi-Fi Alliance had granted certification to Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy A70 smartphone yesterday. Just a day later, Wi-Fi Alliance has certified yet another upcoming Galaxy A-series smartphone from Samsung, the Galaxy A60. Both the Galaxy A60 and Galaxy A70 smartphones are expected to go official next month.

Galaxy A60 SM-A6060 Variant Granted Wi-Fi Certification

The Wi-Fi Alliance has certified the SM-A6060 variant of the upcoming Galaxy A60. It should be noted that the same SM-A6060 variant of the Galaxy A60 was certified by the Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG) yesterday. Just like the smartphone’s Bluetooth certification, the Wi-Fi certification does not reveal any important details. The Wi-Fi certification only confirms the Android version that the smartphone will ship with and that it will support dual-band Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac. The Bluetooth certification had also confirmed that the Galaxy A60 will indeed ship with the latest Android Pie operating system out of the box. Just like the other Galaxy A-series models launched so far, the Galaxy A60 will have Samsung’s new One UI running on top of Android Pie.

According to rumors, the Galaxy A60 will feature a 6.7-inch Infinity-U Super AMOLED display with Full HD+ resolution. The smartphone is said to be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 octa-core processor under the hood, coupled with up to 8GB of RAM. Just like the Galaxy A50, one of the key highlights of the Galaxy A60 will be an In-display fingerprint sensor. Apart from a more powerful chipset and bigger display, the smartphone will be more impressive than the Galaxy A50 in terms of imaging as well. While the details have not been confirmed yet, it is rumored that the Galaxy A60 might sport a 35MP + 8MP + 5MP triple-camera setup on the back and a 32MP selfie camera on the front. The smartphone’s battery capacity is likely to be 4000mAh, identical to the Galaxy A30 and Galaxy A50.
