The Samsung Galaxy A-series are going through a bit of an identity crisis with J-style metal replacing the glass in the lower end of the lineup. But we already knew that - we had the A6 (2018) in for review just last month. Now it's the plus's turn - the Galaxy A6+ (2018) brings more than just a bigger display.
Well, for one, it's also higher-res - 1080p vs. the non-plus's 720p, and it's one of those Samsung-style 1080p's with an 18.5:9 aspect. Super AMOLED, naturally, and notchelss too - yay!
There's also a secondary camera on the back - a 5MP depth-sensing module is there to assist the main 16MP shooter (shared between this year's As) in taking blurred background portraits. Meanwhile, a 50% bump in pixel count sees the A6+ sporting a 24MP front-facing camera - all of a sudden the 16MP selfies of the A6 don't look that impressive.
With a larger display comes the need for a higher battery capacity and the plus delivers - 3,500mAh sounds plenty. Couple that with an efficient, if not too brawny, 14nm Snapdragon 450 chipset and we could be looking at some pretty great endurance.
The Galaxy A6+ (2018) ticks some other important checkboxes too - there's a dedicated microSD slot on top of the twin nano SIM bay, a fingerprint reader on the back ensures some security, and a 3.5mm jack means you can connect your choice of headphones. And use them as the antenna for the FM radio, because there's a receiver for that, too.
A few niceties we were used to seeing in the A-series remain exclusive to the A8 (2018) and A8+ (2018) - the IP68 rating, for example. The higher-end models also come with two front-facing cameras, but then the A6+ (2018) beats each of them 2 to 1 in rear camera count. The A8s do feature more powerful Exynos 7885 chips, USB-C ports, Wi-Fi ac, Bluetooth 5 - but you'll be paying for those.
The thing is, though, the Galaxy A6+ (2018) isn't exactly super affordable itself, yet Samsung didn't feel the need to at least fit a USB-C port - not cool! Anyway, let's have a look at the J-series design of the Galaxy A6+ (2018) on the next page.
