Samsung Galaxy A9 Star Reviews and Price

Samsung Galaxy A9 Star

Samsung has made a landmark 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 foot step 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.

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.

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.
