Now that the Galaxy Note 9's been out in the wild for a couple weeks, Samsung's launching two new devices in the U.S. to make sure its portfolio is stocked for the 2018 holiday shopping season. Starting September 14, both the Galaxy A6 and Galaxy Tab A 10.5 are coming to the States.
The Galaxy A6 is a mid-range phone that was first announced back in May. The phone features a 5.6-inch 1480 x 720 Super AMOLED display. Above that is a 16MP front-facing camera with an f/1.9 aperture and around back is a 16MP f/1.7 shooter.
Inside the Galaxy A6 is the Exynos 7884 processor, 3GB RAM, 32GB of expandable storage (up to 400GB), and a 3,000 mAh battery. You'll also find Android 8.0 Oreo, NFC, Bluetooth 5.0, and a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor.
Moving over to the Galaxy Tab A 10.5, this is Samsung's budget tablet that's designed to be a lesser companion to the Galaxy Tab S4. As the name suggests, there's a 10.5-inch 1200 x 1920 LCD display. Qualcomm's Snapdragon 450 processor and 3GB RAM power the gadget, and along with this, you'll also find 32GB of expandable storage, a 7,300 mAh battery, and Android 8.1 Oreo.
The Galaxy A6 carries a retail price of $359.99 and will be available at "carrier partners" in the next few weeks after first launching on Samsung's website. As for the Tab A 10.5, it costs $329.99 and will be available at Amazon, Samsung, and Walmart. Later this year, an LTE model will launch at Sprint and Verizon.
