SpecificationsEdit

The A6s features a 6.0 inch Full HD+ PLS TFT LCD display with an 18:9 aspect ratio. Unlike previous Samsung A series phones, this device uses a normal LCD panel rather than an AMOLED display. The display features curved edges, similar to the S9's infinity display, but with larger bezels and no curved display.[3]

The dual camera setup features a primary 24MP f/1.8 sensor for normal photography and a 5MP depth sensor for effects such as bokeh.[4] The front camera is a 12MP sensor.

It runs Android 8.0 "Oreo" with Samsung Experience 9.0 respectively out-of-the box. The smartphone features an upgraded Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 SoC consisting of 4 performance 2.2GHZ kyro 260 and 4 efficient 1.8GHZ kyro 260 backed by a new Adreno 512 GPU and sports 6 GB/8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal storage, expandable to 256 GB via a MicroSD card slot, through a dedicated SD card slot.[5]

AvailabilityEdit

The A6s is only released and available in the Chinese market from November 2018. No plans have been announced to launch the device in other markets.
