Two middle class smartphones from Samsung – Galaxy A9 Star and Galaxy A9 Star Lite debuted, which were equipped with Super AMOLED Infinity Display displays, as well as quite meaningful components.
Samsung experiments with design. And very well
The latest Samsung smartphone – Galaxy A9 Star is made in a completely new concept . There has never been such a look at Koreans. An island is cast in the eyes, on which two lenses have been mounted, and just below it a two-tone LED lighting diode. I like this solution with Samsung, although there is something that is a total misunderstanding for me – the placement of the biometric sensor. Samsung decided to put a fingerprint reader at the height of the lower main camera , and thus far too high. Bearing in mind that the smartphone has a screen size of 6.28 "and height 162.4 mm, the use of this biometric security will be damn uncomfortable. I am sorry if I offend someone with a curse, although it is justified in this case – it aims to show the problem. A problem that many users will notice, because the Samsung Galaxy A9 Star is higher than last year's flagship, which measures 159.5 mm. The long edges of the back wall have been bent, which will certainly have a positive effect on the use of the smartphone. On the front, on the other hand, we have bent glass, which has been joined with a metal body. In general, the smartphone looks really cool, but it is a great shame that the front in each color variant remains black.
Galaxy A9 Star is a sufficiently high performance
For operation in Galaxy A9 Star it is Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 (4x Kryo firstname.lastname@example.org GHz + Kryo email@example.com GHz). For graphics, in this case Adreno 512, cooperating with 4GB RAM memory LPDDR4x. 64GB of built-in memory will be reserved for data, which can be expanded by using a reader that supports cards up to 256GB. The smartphone out of the box works on the basis of Android 8.0 Oreo with the manufacturer's interface. This set of components will translate into sufficiently high performance that will allow for comfortable use of the smartphone, as well as for launching any title available in the app store. These components will also allow for trouble-free operation on two windows at the same time, as well as for fast switching between open processes.
The other technical specification makes a lot of sense

Galaxy A9 Star is a great smartphone, but the price will kill him
Samsung Galaxy A9 Star made its debut on the Chinese market, and its price was set at 3699 yuan , which after conversion and taxation gives us the amount of 2615 zlotys. It is therefore more expensive than even the most powerful configuration of the Xiaomi Mi 8, and therefore the superflag maker of the Chinese brand. And that means that only brand lovers will reach the Galaxy A9 Star. It is a great pity that Samsung has set such a prohibitive price, because the smartphone promises to be really good.

The cheaper version of the models described above is nothing more than the renamed Galaxy A6 +, which has debuted recently on the European market.

I am waiting impatiently for Galaxy A9 Star in Poland
I would love to see Galaxy A9 Star in Poland because it's a great competitor for Nokia 7 Plus, which Damian has recently tested for you. Of course, its price should be on a definitely lower level, although we rather have no influence on it. I am afraid, however, that the Galaxy A9 Star will share the fate of Galaxy A9 Pro, and thus will never go to Poland with an official distribution channel. source: Samsung
