Samsung Galaxy A6 (2018)

‘A’s and ‘J’s, unite! We have for review the Samsung Galaxy A6 (2018) which takes the A8’s camera and rear-mounted fingerprint sensor and fits them in a J5 (2017)-like aluminum body. Mind you, there’s also the J6 (no year) which is a lot like the A6 (2018), but minus the A’s cameras and with a plastic body. As if Samsung’s lineup could get any more confusing.

Straight out of the J-series comes the chipset – Samsung’s own Exynos 7870 which we really liked for its power efficiency all the way back when it was introduced with the J7 (2016). Hint, hint – it is a bit old. The base model comes with a pretty adequate 3GB of RAM and 32GB storage, though a higher-specced 4GB/64GB version is also available in some places. There’s a microSD slot too – a dedicated one regardless of SIM count.

The A8 (2018) lends its primary camera – the 16MP f/1.7 shooter replaces the J5 (2017)’s 13MP one. It’s the same thing on the front – 16MP f/1.9 selfie cam is lifted off the A8 (2018), only there it was joined by a secondary 5MP module for depth detection. No such thing here, though, just the 16MP camera. And a flash, there’s a front-facing flash.

There’s also a front-facing display – a rather orthodox arrangement. It’s a 5.6-inch SuperAMOLED panel, just like on the A8 (2018). Oh, but it isn’t – while the one on the A8 has a 1080p resolution, the A6 gets 720p, in a tall 18.5:9 aspect, of course.
