Galaxy A6 Is The First “Samsung Non-Samsung” Smartphone

The Samsung Galaxy A series is an essential one in the South Korean company’s lineup. Galaxy A7 and A9 are two mid-range smartphones that focus on innovation and performance, outperforming other devices in this range. However, recently, Samsung launched the new Galaxy A6 in China, and this handset is unique since it is the first “Samsung non-Samsung” smartphone.

Yes, that’s correct! Galaxy A6 in China is licensed by Samsung but is not manufactured by the South Korean tech company. In reality, Galaxy A6 is a so-called ODM (Original Device Manufacturer) which is a smartphone that holds Samsung’s name but is not made by Samsung. Accordingly, the Galaxy A6 phones are made by Chinese company Wintech which is also the producer of Xiaomi smartphones.

That’s no something unusual in the smartphone industry. For instance, BlackBerry handsets are made by TCL, and the new Nokia smartphones are now made by HMD Global, also a Chinese phone manufacturer.

Galaxy A6 Is The First “Samsung Non-Samsung” Smartphone

Samsung Galaxy A6 boasts a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 chipset, 6 Gb of RAM, and either 64 Gb or 128 Gb of internal storage space. It also comes with a 6-inch display with a 2160×1080 resolution and an 18:9 aspect ratio.

Besides, this mid-range handset boasts a dual camera system on its back with one sensor of 12 megapixels and another one of 5 megapixels. It also runs Android 8.1 Oreo. Additionally, the new Galaxy A6 is available at the affordable price of $260.

But, on the other hand, the new “Samsung non-Samsung” smartphone, a so-called ODM phone, raised some concerns among the Chinese smartphone customers. On the one hand, many believe that the Galaxy A6 for China will be significantly different than other phones of the Galaxy A series, especially as regarding its performance. On the other hand, others believe that this is just the first Samsung-branded handset produced by Wintech from a series of such smartphones which would roll out for the Chinese market.
