Two new mid-range smartphones from Samsung have seen the light at the end of the tunnel; Galaxy A6 and Galaxy A6 Plus. The handsets look nearly the same, with the only difference being their sizes and camera setups. Galaxy A6 just has a single rear camera, while the Galaxy A6 Plus gets the dual camera treatment.

Both devices feature a premium metal finish, so it is nice to see that Samsung is branching out this approach towards the lower segment of its smartphone lineup. Let us take brief you everything there is to know about the mid-range series that will be released in the future.
