We’ve followed the Samsung Galaxy A6 and Galaxy A6+ trail since March this year — from the time the two then-unannounced smartphones were spotted on benchmarking site Geekbench until the Korean giant itself revealed their specs early this month. Today, we got some good news for the Philippine market.
The local launch of the Samsung Galaxy A6 and Galaxy A6+ has been set for May 22, just five days away from today. By then, we’ll surely know their availability and respective prices.
The devices inherit the Infinity displays of the more recent A series models, with the Plus variant getting a bigger, higher-resolution screen than the regular A6. But the backs? They are reminiscent of the Samsung Galaxy J7 Pro‘s rear design, aren’t they? Call it a mash-up. If you recall, the latter was released in the Philippines in July 2017 for a suggested retail price of P15,990 (roughly $306).
We’re guessing the Samsung Galaxy A6 and Galaxy A6+ will cost more than J7 Pro. After all, the A series is more premium than the Galaxy J lineup. However, they will definitely be cheaper than the Samsung Galaxy A8 and Galaxy A8+, which were first sold in the Philippines in January 2018 for P26,990 ($516) and P32,990 ($631), respectively.
In Europe, the smaller A6 is priced at €309 (P19,059 or $365), while the bigger version goes for €359 (P22,143 or $424). We’re hoping that local pricing will even be lower. Cross your fingers.
