Samsung’s Galaxy A9 Star Appears In China, Dual Cameras and Larger Batteries

Samsung has been pushing their A series of devices lately. Their annual refreshes bring the latest trends to the mainstream for a much affordable price. Since Samsung’s Galaxy A-series represents Samsung’s upper mid-range lineup, Samsung’s always on its toes to offer enticing phones based on current trends.

We personally thought that Samsung was over with their refreshes when they announced the A8 and A8 Plus, but no, they weren’t. Recently, two new Samsung devices have popped up in China dubbed as the A9 Star and the A9 Star Lite. Both of these phones feature dual rear camera setups, a feature that Samsung’s Galaxy A8 and A8 Plus skimped on. Since the top execs at Samsung locked off the S-series naming scheme, here we have the A9 Star and A9 Star Lite, two phones from the A series of devices who have joined the odd party.

Well, aside from those changes, you might ask, what’s new apart from their names? Well, I’m glad you asked. The Samsung Galaxy A9 Star and A9 Star Lite feature a dual rear camera camera setup, that’s a 24MP+16MP setup at its back on the A9 Star. The webpage didn’t clearly indicate what type of setup the A9 Star Lite has. Although, the image clearly indicates that the device packs a dual camera setup too.

Another thing that you may notice immediately is that the A9 Star Lite seems to be recycling the same body of the J7 Pro/Plus which is pretty odd. Being marked as an A9 Star, I think that both of these devices should have been built similarly, but that’s the case here.

Regarding battery sizes, the Samsung Galaxy A9 Star packs a 3700mAh battery. While the cheaper A9 Star Lite packs a 3500mAh battery. That’s quite a decent battery pack for what we’ve been seeing from Samsung lately.

Aside from that, both of these devices seem to be priced in typical Samsung tags. That’s KRW 3699 and 2699 for the A9 Star and A9 Star Lite, respectively.

Based solely on their names, I think that both of these devices would be exclusive to China. However, if it does reach the international market, we could see a few changes here and there to adapt to Samsung’s global audience.
