Samsung Galaxy A6+ Listed on Company’s Website, Launch Expected to Happen Later this Month

In the past, we have reported about the Samsung Galaxy A6 and the Galaxy A6+ multiple times without any tentative date of launch. However, the bigger A6+ has now seen on the company’s official website with model number- SM-A605FN/DS, hinting at imminent launch. This listing was spotted on Samsung’s Polish division and it’ still live as of this writing. Going by the DS at the end of the model number, we could expect the phone to be the dual-SIM version of the upcoming Galaxy A6+. The same smartphone was spotted on Geekbench benchmarking site last month with mid-range hardware. Samsung is expected to announce the Galaxy A6 and A6+ at a single event later this month.


The Galaxy A6+ with model number A605FN already received necessary certifications from FCC, Wi-Fi, but the device was not spotted on Bluetooth certification agency though. Going by the benchmark report from last month, the Galaxy A6 will be powered by Samsung’s in-house Exynos processor, while the A6+ will make use of the Snapdragon 625 SoC.

The Galaxy A6+ will be released in various models carrying different model numbers. In some markets, the phone will arrive with the SM-A605G model number, while in some it will come with SM-A605FN. The smaller Galaxy A6 will come with the SM-A600FN model number.

The A6+ carrying SM-A605G model number paid a visit to Geekbench last month. Going by that listing, the A6+ will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 SoC, quite unusual considering Samsung always uses a single chip to power both the regular and Plus variants of a smartphone. For example, the Galaxy A8 and A8 Plus arrived earlier this year with Exynos 7885 chipset. The Galaxy A6 is said to house an Exynos processor.

While benchmarking, the device was running Android 8.0 Oreo, and it has 4GB of RAM to take care of the system operations. As per some other reports, the Galaxy A6+ will arrive in three markets first- the Middle East, Europe and Russia.
