Coming to the RAM and the internal storage, the Galaxy A6 is going to have 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. The Galaxy A6 Plus, on the other hand, is going to have 4GB of RAM with the same amount of internal storage.

The big news here is that both the devices are going to support Bixby. That said, there is no dedicated hardware key to launch the assistant and the only way to activate the same would be by using one’s voice for a hotkey wakeup phrase like “Hello Bixby”.
