Samsung plans to upgrade the Galaxy A series with two new phones, which have already taken the name of Galaxy A9 Star and Galaxy A9 Star Lite, as reported recently in several “leaks”. According to the latest rumors, the South Korean giant would be ready to formalize both devices on June 7 on the occasion of an event to be held in China. To reveal the date is an (alleged) official poster spotted online.
On the web also appeared another Samsung poster that reveals some features of the Galaxy A9 Star Lite suggesting that it could also be a Galaxy A6 renewed for the Chinese market. Finally, the Galaxy A9 Star was spotted on NCC, the Taiwan certification website, where details and technical specifications of the new handset were made known.
The first poster, spotted on Weibo, states that the launch of the two smartphones will be held in China at 14:00 local time on June 7 and that the phones will be available starting from June 15 with the possibility of proceeding to pre-order from 7 until June 14th. Another poster, this time spotted on Weico, allows us to take a look at both the Galaxy A9 Star and the Galaxy A9 Star Lite. From an aesthetic point of view, as mentioned before, Galaxy A9 Star Lite is reminiscent of the Galaxy A6and could be a renamed version of the Galaxy A6 in China. However, the Galaxy A9 Star could also replace the Galaxy A6 + as it has the same 24-megapixel “selfie” camera, with features based on artificial intelligence.
The NCC certification list reveals that the new smartphone from Samsung has as model number SM-G885Y / DS. The images reveal a double camera on the back and a fingerprint sensor mounted on the back. The smartphone also features a Micro-USB port and a 3.5mm headphone jack.
Previously, the Galaxy A9 Star had appeared on the Geekbench benchmark site. The smartphone will then have a 5.8-inch QHD + Super AMOLED display (1440 × 2960 pixels) with a 19 – 9 ratio. In addition, the phone will be equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 octa-core processor, combined with 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of integrated memory.
