This move could be interpreted as Samsung reacting to the change in market dynamics, where we have seen Chinese smartphones taking up significant market share thanks to their budget pricing and "enticing" specifications.
Meanwhile, the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 is gaining traction.
The Samsung Galaxy A6 is expected to feature a 5.6-inch HD+ Super AMOLED display alongside an Infinity 2.5D curved glass display. The device is powered by a 3,000mAh battery which is enough for long usage. The models are yet to go official but some of the leaked details have been official ones.
Ultimately, Samsung will bring the Galaxy S9's smart dual back camera to the Galaxy Note 9, however an extra update its woeful front looking camera is additionally tipped.
The star of "glee" Lea Michele engaged
Lea had previously been in a relationship with Glee co-star and on-screen boyfriend Corey Monteith when he died on July 13 2013. The 32-year-old graduated from the University of Pennsylvania Wharton School of business in 2012.
Both models get a primary 16MP main camera with f/1.7 aperture lens while the A6+ has an additional 5MP f/1.9 camera for depth of field effects.
The company notes you can also still expand beyond that amount of storage thanks to support for up to a 400GB microSD card being built into both devices. Both the rear and the front cameras have LED Flash.
Other features that will make the Galaxy Note 9 a well-deserving flagship in 2018 is the possible integration of in-display fingerprint sensor, but there has been skepticism about the niche feature due to "technical difficulties", Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI Securities had said earlier. Samsung previously trademarked the name Galaxy Note 9 in Colombia but not anywhere else.
Benchmark results of the Galaxy A6 are pretty good for a midranger. The move away from a physical sensor on the back of the device has been floating around since the Galaxy Note 8 but the technology wasn't ready so never made it to the final device.
The bigger A6 Plus will sport a better 6.0 inches FHD+(2220×1080 pixels) Super AMOLED display with the same 18:5:9 taller aspect ratio. The Galaxy A6 is expected to be priced between 300 and 340 euros - which is roughly around Rs 24,000 - Rs 27,000.
