Thursday of launches in the Android universe. Having finally met, directlywith a new pair of phones that add to its extensive catalog: the Galaxy A9 Star and Galaxy A9 Star Lite . The company had been anticipating several weeks the presentation of these two smartphones based on teasers, and the leaks had already ended with any possible surprise. Even so, the South Korean has not hesitated to announce all over these new smartphones, which are located in the middle segment of the Galaxy range.
The Samsung Galaxy A9 Star Lite is nothing more than a Galaxy A6 Plus intended for the Chinese market. Nevertheless, the Galaxy A9 Star is a totally new terminal , whose specifications are closer to those of the company’s high-performance phones. Without further ado, we got to know everything about the new Galaxy A9 Star and A9 Star Lite.
What for weeks we knew as Samsung Galaxy S9 Lite, has finally materialized in the A9 Star. We are facing a terminal with premium design, which adopts lines and materials of the high-end of the company. Aluminum and crystal form its body, and its square appearance reminds us of the terminals of the series Note . In addition, we found a fingerprint reader located in the back, and a dual photographic system of 24 and 16 megapixels.
On the front, we came across a 6.28-inch SuperAMOLED Full HD + large screen, with a format of 18.5: 9 and very low margins. Among other aesthetic details, Samsung does not forget to incorporate the button to invoke the Bixby assistant, as well as the 3.5 mm audio jack and a USB Type C port.
A chip is in charge of the interior Snapdragon 660 by Qualcomm , with eight cores at a maximum frequency of 2.2 GHz, based on 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of internal storage. Another important note is the battery, with nothing less than 3,700 mAh capacity.
On the other hand, the Galaxy A9 Star Lite is a somewhat less capable model, but also quite more affordable. As I mentioned at the beginning, the device is just a variant of the Galaxy A6 Plus intended for the Chinese market , where the Galaxy A6 series is not officially marketed. Therefore, we find the same design and characteristics as
The price of the Galaxy A9 Star is 400 euros or 470 dollars at change , while the affordable edition will cost close to 260 euros. Still, I’m afraid that Samsung has no intention of taking these two phones from the Chinese market … at least not with this new name.
