Design

Samsung Galaxy A6 (2018)

First thing you would notice from the back, is the uniquely curved dual antenna lines at the top and bottom corner. The top antenna line sleekly conects to the foundation that houses the rear camera and fingerprint scanner, as seen on the Galaxy S9.

Right beside the foundation is the LED flash, while the Samsung logo is in its usual position. When you turn over to the sides, it measures 7.7mm in thickness. Which is really tiny and sleek to hold when out and about. You can get it in Black, Gold, Blue and Lavender colors.

Display

Another midrange Samsung smartphone with the trending bezel-less display. This isn’t the first smartphone from the A series with the feature though. With no physical home button in sight, Samsung is gradually letting go of their beloved home button.

At the top bezel we can see the selfie camera, speaker grille, sensor and LED flash. The 5.6-inch Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen stretches from side to side. Boasting of 720 x 1480 pixels in resolution and 294 pixel per inch density. The screen dishes out an 18.5:9 aspect ratio and stretches up 75% screen to body ratio.
