Galaxy A6s with Snapdragon 660 is Samsung’s first smartphone manufactured by someone else

“Galaxy A6s with Snapdragon 660 and 6GB of RAM is the first smartphone that Samsung is getting produced by a contract manufacturer”

Samsung has launched the Galaxy A6s smartphone in China, its first ODM (original design manufacturer) handset. This means that the new Galaxy A6s will be manufactured by a contract manufacturer — China-based Wintech in this case — instead of Samsung’s own factories.
The new Galaxy A6s was launched alongside the Galaxy A9s, which is the rebranded version of the four-camera toting Galaxy A9 (2018) for the Chinese market. Along with this, Samsung teased the Galaxy A8s with an all-display, notch-free display at the event.

The Samsung Galaxy A6s sports a 6-inch Super AMOLED screen with full-HD+ resolution (1,080 x 2,160 pixels) and 18:9 aspect ratio and runs Android 8.0 Oreo-based Samsung Experience UI. It is powered by the octa-core 2.2GHz Snapdragon 660 processor, backed by 6GB of RAM. Buyers can choose between 64GB and 128GB storage options.

For optics, the smartphone comes with a 12MP + 12MP dual camera setup on the back, both with f/1.8 aperture. The front camera has a 24MP sensor for selfies. The smartphone has a 3,300mAh battery and a fingerprint sensor positioned on the back.

Colour options for the handset include Black, Red, and Blue. Buyers can place pre-orders for the handset via the official Samsung China e-shop or head to online retailers such as JD.com in China.
