Design and Display
The Galaxy A6s was produced by another company. It is designed by “Wingtech” which is a Chinese original design manufacturing company that produces Xiaomi phones. Well, the company designed the Galaxy A6s as per Samsung’s specifications.
Being a Samsung phone, you did expect a dignified 6-inch Super AMOLED display with screen resolution of 1080pixels for more brighter display. The color contrast is somewhat magnificent and the design looks stunning.
It is much more comfortable to use and provides extreme useful user’s experience. At the back, the shiny and elegant back design comes with a Galaxy S8‘s fingerprint sensor scanner and it is available in black, red, blue and a gradient colors options, which dazzles from one angle to another.
