Samsung Galaxy A60 Design And Display
Samsung Galaxy A60 has a 6.3-inch FHD+ display with a punch-hole cutout for its single front facing camera which Samsung calls the “Infinity-O Display”. However, unlike the Samsung Galaxy A8s and S10 Trio, the punch-hole that houses the camera sits at the top left side of the display instead of the top right as with the aforementioned devices.
There is also no speaker grill here as it uses Samsung’s screencast feature which makes use of the whole screen as the speaker. Like almost all other notched devices, this one also has a small chin at the bottom. At the back of the device are the triple cameras setup and a fingerprint sensor. It will also have a single or dual SIM variant, both of which will come with a dedicated MicroSD card slot for storage expansion. No word yet on colour options but there will be a few to choose from.

Samsung ditched their own Exynos SoC and went with a Snapdragon SoC here – the new Snapdragon 675.
