Samsung Galaxy A9 Star Specs and Price

  • image

    Samsung has been on a spree lately with a list of mid-range smartphones already released although not quite with so much attention has their flagships.

    Following in the footstep of mid-range smartphone like the Samsung Galaxy S Light Luxury which has the infinity display, the Samsung Galaxy A9 Star comes alongside some cool features that are only available in flagships. Although unlike the flagships, the release of these smartphones didn’t attract much attention. While this is only a fraction of the cost of Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus flagship but is quite a nice offering.

    Samsung Galaxy A9 Star Key Specs and Features

    • 6.28-inch, Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen, 1080 x 2220 pixels (309 ppi)
    • Android 8.0 Oreo
    • Octa-core Qualcomm SDM660 Snapdragon 660 CPU with 4GB RAM
    • 64GB built-in storage space, up to 256GB with a memory card
    • Dual 24MP + 16MP rear camera and 16MP front camera
    • 4G LTE
    • Fingerprint sensor (rear)
    • Face Unlock
    • 3, 700mAh non removable Li-ion battery

    Design and Display

    Mimicking the premium build of the more expensive smartphones, the Samsung Galaxy A9 Star is a sleek smartphone. Considering that this is a much lesser priced flagship, the smartphone has a metallic body rather than glass. However, unlike the rest of the Samsung flagship there is no notch here and is quite slim which is probably because of the absence of a thick glass build.

    Flagged by no bezel at the side, the smartphone is large an colourful thanks to its high-resolution display and AMOLED screen with a quite large size too. On the other hand, the infinity display is curved at the side with clear visibility outside even under direct sunlight. Shipping with 18.5:9 aspect ratio, the resolution is at 2220 x 1080 pixels over a 6.28-inch size and a pixel density 309 ppi.

    Battery and Camera

    It goes well beyond the average line, when it comes to standard battery capacity. There is a 3, 700mAh battery, a non-removable one at that which charges through a USB Type-C port. It also fast charge, a feature that gives more than 50 percent on 30 minutes but misses wireless charging.

    Pictures are taken with a dual camera on the back and a single camera up front. The camera featured on the rear includes 24MP and 16MP dual sensor set up. In case you’re a selfie lover, not to worry you’ve got a16MP camera

    Hardware and Software

    In the middle of things, the smartphone has a well-grounded hardware which is guaranteed to deliver hitch free performance although not up to flagship quality.  That is a Qualcomm SDM660 Snapdragon 660 SoC with eight cores running and an Adreno 512 GPU.

    In segue, the Samsung Galaxy A9 Star is more or less like the Samsung Galaxy A6 Plus with just about the same RAM and storage space. This is a 4GB internal memory with 64GB space for storing your files and runs Android 8.0 Oreo covered up by Samsung Experience UI.
