Samsung Galaxy A6s Images Leaked to Reveal Four Color Variants Ahead of Launch

Alleged hands-on images of the upcoming Galaxy A6s have surfaced ahead of its expected launch in China on October 24th.


Samsung recently introduced not one but two impressive new additions to its mid-range Galaxy A-series lineup – Galaxy A7 and Galaxy A9. While the Galaxy A7 sports a triple-camera setup at the rear, the Galaxy A9 is the world’s first smartphone to feature four rear-facing cameras. The company is soon expected to launch another new Galaxy A-series smartphone in China, expected to be called the Galaxy A6s. Ahead of its debut in China, a couple of hands-on images showing the smartphone in various gradient color options have been leaked online.

Samsung Galaxy A6s Hands-On Images Reveal Four Color Options

As you can see in the images below, the Galaxy A6s will be offered in Red, Blue, and Purple gradient colors, along with a traditional Black option. The images also highlight the presence of a vertically-stacked dual-camera setup on the back of the phone. Unlike the Galaxy A7 and Galaxy A9, it looks like the Galaxy A6s will not have any significant advantage over its rivals in the camera department. What is interesting, however, is that the Galaxy A6s appears to have a dual-LED flash module below the dual rear cameras. We also find a fingerprint sensor at the rear. From the front, the Galaxy A6s appears to feature an Infinity Display, just like the standard Galaxy A6. The bezels surrounding the display are no doubt much thinner than previous-generation Galaxy A-series smartphones, although not quite competitive when compared to mid-range smartphones featuring notched displays.

Samsung Galaxy A6s Rumored Specifications

The Galaxy A6s will be an ODM device manufactured by Wingtech, a company that manufactures low-end Redmi smartphones for Xiaomi. Previously rumored to be called the P30, Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy A-series smartphone was certified by TENAA in China earlier this month. It will arrive with a 5.99-inch IPS LCD display panel featuring 1080 x 2160 Full HD+ resolution and an 18:9 aspect ratio. Under the hood, Galaxy A6s is expected to be powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 AIE processor, a significant upgrade compared to the Snapdragon 450 chipset that powers the Galaxy A6 Plus. Since the Galaxy A6s is primarily aimed at the Chinese market, the smartphone will come with an impressive 6GB of RAM. It will be offered in two storage variants – 64GB and 128GB.

In terms of optics, however, the Galaxy A6s will be a slight downgrade when compared to the Galaxy A6 Plus. It will sport a 12MP + 2MP dual-camera setup at the rear, which does not sound anywhere near as impressive as the 16MP + 5MP setup found on the Galaxy A6 Plus. Selfie fanatics may not be very impressed by the Galaxy A6s either. The smartphone will come equipped with a single 5MP snapper on the front. Keeping the lights on will be a decent 3300mAh capacity battery, although fast charging will not be supported. On the software side, Galaxy A6s is expected to run on the Android 8.1 Oreo operating system out of the box with Samsung’s Experience UX running on top. The Galaxy A6s is expected to launch in China on October 24th.
