Samsung Galaxy A9 Star (G8850) shows up in quick hands-on video

Peter, 28 May 2018

Rumors of two Samsung devices got conflated – the G8850 with dual cameras and what eventually became the Galaxy S Light Luxury (aka S8 Lite). G8850 rumors have been revitalized with this short hands-on video and its purported name is “Galaxy A9 Star”. Note that the S Light Luxury was rumored as the A8 Star at one point.

Anyway, according to TENAA, the phone packs a 6.28” AMOLED screen with 1,080 x 2,220 px resolution (note that TENAA updated the specs since they were initially published). It comes with a large 3,700 mAh battery and will have slightly different dimensions than the Galaxy S9+ - thinner, but taller and wider.

The camera – which is in the corner, an unusual design for Samsung – is a dual shooter with 24 MP + 16 MP sensors. The selfie camera has a 24 MP sensor. The Galaxy A9 Star G8850 runs Android 8.0 and has 4 GB of RAM plus 64 GB of storage (and a microSD slot).

The Galaxy S Light Luxury was essentially a Galaxy S8 with a weaker chipset and a lower resolution screen. Will this phone be the “Light Luxury” version of the Galaxy S9+?
