- Samsung Galaxy A9 Star spotted in a hands-on video
- The handset comes with model number SM-G8850
- Some live images of the Galaxy A9 Star Lite surfaced
Samsung is reportedly working on two new smartphones in its A-series. Dubbed as Galaxy A9 Star and Galaxy A9 Star Lite, the former has been spotted in a leaked hands-on video, while the latter is leaked in live images. The two devices were earlier reported to be launched as Galaxy A8 Star and Galaxy A8 Star Lite.
Starting with the Galaxy A9 Star, the leaked hands-on video (via SlashLeaks) reveals that the smartphone will feature a glass design at the back panel. One can clearly see the dual-camera setup at the rear, which is aligned vertically at the top-left corner, while there is a fingerprint sensor at the top-centre position, which is odd in our opinion as it might be difficult to reach.

Coming to the features, Samsung Galaxy A9 Star Lite the front panel sports the Infinity Display that is present in other newly-launched Samsung smartphones with a front-facing camera and usual array of sensors sitting on the top. The right houses volume controls, while the left comes with power on/off button. At the base, one can see USB Type-C port flanked between speaker grille and 3.5mm headphone jack.
The Galaxy A9 Star Lite featured in live images reveals that it will follow a design language similar to what we have seen in Galaxy C Pro series.
