We all know that the A series from Samsung includes the upper mid-range devices, but it is quite weird that Samsung has used the same Exynos 7870 processor on the Galaxy A6 as on the Galaxy J6. We have seen a ton of phones powered by the same chipset from Samsung and if you don’t know, it was announced two years back in February 2016. Well, for some reasons, Samsung has no plans to shift to any other Exynos processor for its mid-range and budget devices.

Unlike the Polycarbonate design of the Galaxy J6 and J8, the Samsung Galaxy A6 has a unibody metal design with a different design for the Antenna lines. The camera module on the rear has a design similar to the Galaxy S9, i.e., the fingerprint scanner is present below the camera lens. The volume rockers are on the left, and the power button along with the speaker is present on the right. The color options are Black, Blue, and Gold.
