This testing was done on Geekbench 4.2, which is a much older version of the benchmarking platform. Hence, the numbers will certainly drop when the tests are rerun on the latest version of Geekbench.

So what up?

As I mentioned earlier, these listings have revealed some of the key specs of the Samsung Galaxy A06. Firstly, it measures 167.30 mm in length and 77.31 mm wide. We do not yet know the thickness of the phone. Additionally, it will be a 4G phone and we can see the distribution and patterns of antenna as well. Likewise, Samsung’s upcoming entry-level phone will have a 5,000 mAh battery, which is rated at 4,855 mAh.

Other than that, the Geekbench listing gives us some more idea of what we might see on the Samsung Galaxy A06. Most noticeably, it will have a processor with codename — ARM MT6769V. This coupled with the Geekbench scores, has led sources to speculate the chipset to be either Helio G85 or Helio G88. Furthermore, this phone will pack a 6GB memory and boot on Android 14.

Samsung Galaxy A06 Launch and Availability

While it is still too early to tell anything else about the Samsung Galaxy A06, we can still do some guesswork. Looking at the launch trend of the base Galaxy A-series, we can expect the upcoming member to debut near the end of 2024. Talking of the price, it will likely be in the same bracket as the A05 with a slight hike.
