The Samsung Galaxy A60 is the latest mid-range smartphone to enter the market. The newest addition to fast-growing A-series family comes with a Snapdragon 675 SoC, a total of four cameras, 6.3-inch display and 3500 mAh battery. This device was released in China by Samsung and will compete with the likes of Samsung Galaxy A50, Samsung Galaxy A30, Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 and other mid-rangers.

The Samsung Galaxy A60 comes with front glass and glastic back. The Glastic back is made up of polycarbonate material with glossy touch, which makes it look like glass and shiny.

The Galaxy A60 measures 155.2 x 73.9 x 7.9 mm in dimensions with a weight of 162 grams. It is considered a little bit thick and heavy. Only two body colours are available to choose from in this device; Daybreak Black and Cocktail Orange.

The infinity-O display as it is fondly called by Samsung is what we have here. Am really a fan of this punch-hole display than the notch display.

The Galaxy A60 display features 1080 x 2340 pixels, 409 PPI density and 19.5:9 aspect ratio.

The camera is a strong selling point for this device.

The camera can shoot 4K videos at 30 frames per second. The punch-hole selfie camera packs a 16 MP sensor with f/2.0 aperture and HDR.

Samsung opted for a Qualcomm chipset than their in-house HiSilicon chipset. Under the hood of the Galaxy A60 is the Snapdragon 675 SoC with Octa-core processor clocking at 2.0 GHz and Adreno 612 GPU. Only one memory variant is available on this device; a 6 GB RAM with 128 GB internal storage. If the storage isn’t enough for you, there is room for up to 512 GB additional storage through the microSD slot.
