Samsung Galaxy A60 launched: Punch-hole screen, 32MP triple camera, P19k price


Last week, the Samsung Galaxy A80 was announced with a surprising design feature — the motorized and flipping main cameras. It was just one of the company’s latest overhauls on their A series phones. Today, we are served with the Galaxy A60 — yet another good mid-range device from Samsung.

The Galaxy A60 is a fullscreen device like the Galaxy A80, however, it sports a punch-hole display akin to the Galaxy A8s. Within the punch-hole is a 32MP selfie sensor. Other than that, we’re seeing a beautiful 92% screen-to-body ratio from the 6.3-inch FHD+ LCD screen.

In terms of performance, it’s powered by a Snapdragon 675 with 6GB RAM and 128GB onboard storage and 3500mAh battery. The main camera packs three sensors — 32MP f1.7 wide + 8MP f2.2 ultra wide + 5MP depth sensor. Unlike the Galaxy A50, the fingerprint scanner is a capacitive type on the back. Surprisingly, the A60 doesn’t come with speaker grilles, but rather a vibrating display aka Screen Cast sound technology, a la LG G8.

The Samsung Galaxy A60 (6GB/128GB) was announced in China at 1999 CNY or ~P15k price (before taxes). We will have to wait for further announcements for Philippine availability.
