Quad-cam Samsung Galaxy A9s and ODM Galaxy A6s debut

24 October 2018
The A6s is ODM versions A6+ (2018) with some upgrades. The Galaxy A9s is just a new name for the A9 (2018).

They sold it as Samsung branded but it can also be rebranded as other brand since it is white label product. Its like cheap knock off but its more legal and authorized by Samsung. Samsung wont be getting much profit from it anyway so they wont care whatever happened to it. ODM device can be carried with zero responsibility. If the product fail they can scrap it off . End of story.

Kickasser, 24 Oct 2018A6s is quite a deal, but Sammy screwed it up again with A9s...A9s is OEM device. A6s is cheap because it is ODM device aka white label product.

Grats low end 4 cameras and medium to low specs for a price of a flagship.
Samsung way to deal with custoemrs.

These are actually great prices.

ODM is sort of a franchise model in the mobile world. I just hope that it doesn't get caught in the quality check issue which is quite prevalent in the B2C space.

A6s with sd660, new a7 with sd450, what about a8 (2019)... sd425 ??

A6s is a pretty good deal, considering it's a Samsung phone.

SD660 at 1800 CNY, SD660 at double that price. Typical shameless Sammy. Least they could have done was provide SD710 at that price.
But considering it's China where flashy products sell well, despite ridiculous prices, this one with it's 4 cameras could have sold well even with an inferior chipset.

Kickasser, 24 Oct 2018Both Chinese and Indian markets are so full of options in the pr... moreTrue, though I was referring to the camera hype. The fact that it has 4 cameras might appeal to some

I am not sure that camera quality would be better than S/Note series. Snapdragon 8** has better ISP than SD660.
ISP - Image Signal Processor (it is part of the chipset)

All their phones are too overpriced (because Samsung is following Apple).

It's visible that the Galaxy A6s is made in a different factory...
This doesn't look like Samsung design at all

Aside from the camera module, I love the rest of it. Prefer it to the curves S series.

Just release A6s ASAP in India.

I hope the pricing will be same for the A6s . It's a great competitor to Realme 2 pro,Mi 8 lite,Honor 8x.

Hmmm. Nice colours on the A9s.

I do hope the quality of this ODM smartphone won't be drastically different from an OEM Samsung phone.

Walter C. Dornez, 24 Oct 2018Maybe not, since I think they're trying to ride in the hypeBoth Chinese and Indian markets are so full of options in the price range of A9s that Samsung will find itself in a really tough position...
Also, Samsung has been at loss in China for around 2-3 quarters now, so yeah...
