Samsung is expanding their mid-range lineup in the United States with the addition of two devices: the Samsung Galaxy A6 and the Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.5″. Both of these devices were announced earlier this year, but we finally have the pricing and availability information for the unlocked versions in the U.S. First, here’s a recap of the specifications for each device.
Bluetooth 5.0, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, Wi-Fi Direct, NFC, GPS+GLONASS
Single nanoSIM card slot and microSD card slot

This smartphone may not seem much on paper, but if you’re looking for a mid-range device from a top-tier manufacturer, then you may be interested in this device. The deals that carriers will offer may make the Galaxy A6’s price more palatable, too.
