Upcoming Samsung Galaxy A Star gets certified with Bluetooth 5.0 on board

Vlad, 10 May 2018

The Bluetooth SIG has certified the upcoming Samsung Galaxy A Star. This comes with Bluetooth 5.0 on board, and it has the model number SM-G885. Previously, rumors said the handset would be called Galaxy A8 Star when it launches, but as per the Bluetooth SIG's documents it will be known simply as the A Star.

This certification doesn't reveal anything else about the device. According to past leaks and outings it should boast a 6.28-inch FHD+ Infinity Display, dual rear cameras (with 16 MP + 24 MP resolution), the Exynos 7885 or Snapdragon 660 SoC at the helm, 4 or 6GB of RAM, 64GB of storage, and a 3,700 mAh battery.

It's probably going to become official soon, now that it's already going through certification processes left and right. It was assumed at one point that this would be a model confined to the Chinese market, but the Bluetooth SIG's listing contains an international variant as well.

Samsung is dead in the low end and their mid-range is barely competitive so they keep on releasing till they get a good formula.

I like GSMArena's colors nowadays. It is more vivid than the last one. Anyways, this is gonna be China only phone, Samsung?
