“The Samsung Galaxy A60 is rumoured to be powered by the next generation Snapdragon 6-series processor, and get a triple-rear camera setup.”
Samsung has been expected to unveil the Galaxy A60 mid-range smartphone since a while, and we now have with us the first renders of the Galaxy A60 smartphone. The design, as you’d expect of a mid-range smartphone nowadays, is pretty generic — with a large screen area up front, offset by a waterdrop-shaped cutout to hold the front camera, and a narrow band that forms the ‘chin’ of the device.
The notched display, which Samsung calls the ‘Infinity U’ display panel, is what was expected from the seemingly mid-ranged offering that the Galaxy A60 is shaping up to be. To the rear is a triple camera arrangement, organised in a vertical stack at the top left corner. The sides of the purported Galaxy A60 get flattened chamfered edges to enhance the overall in-hand grip, while adding a bit more character to the device’s design. There is no fingerprint sensor at the rear, and the schematics show an in-display fingerprint sensor.
At the bottom, the Galaxy A60 is shown to include a USB-C port, along with a mono speaker grille, a 3.5mm audio jack and a microphone, completing the overall configuration of the device. While all of this is fairly generic, what’s interesting to note is that the Galaxy A60 will reportedly include an all-new mid-range processor from Qualcomm, stated to be presently in development as the Snapdragon 6150.
If Qualcomm’s new naming conventions are followed, the Snapdragon 6150 may see the light of the day christened as the Snapdragon 685, slotted in beneath the flagship 8-series and the premium 7-series processors. Other rumoured specifications include 6.7-inch AMOLED full HD+ screen, 6/8GB of RAM, up to 128GB native storage, a 32MP front camera powered by an in-house ISOCELL sensor, and a triple rear camera configuration that includes a 35MP primary camera, a 5MP depth-sensing camera and an 8MP ultra-wide unit. The smartphone is also set to run on Android Pie with One UI’s latest firmware version on top, and the entire setup may be powered by a 4,500mAh battery pack.
That said, there are no launch timelines given for the device so far, and neither has there been any word regarding its pricing. Given that even the processor has not yet been publicly announced, it may be a while until the Samsung Galaxy A60 is eventually launched.
