Samsung launched the Galaxy A6 about five months ago. The company said back then that it would release this handset in select markets across Asia, Europe and Latin America. A North America release was not mentioned at that point in time. Subsequent reports suggested that a US launch was possible for this handset.
The reports had also mentioned that AT&T could be the carrier partner for this device in the country. That’s precisely what has happened as the country’s second largest mobile carrier has now launched the Galaxy A6 (2018) in the United States.
