Under the hood, it runs on a quad-core Exynos 7570 processor, 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage that can be expanded via a microSD card.
Galaxy A8 Star comes with a 6.3-inch Full HD+ Super AMOLED "Infinity Display" with an 18.5:9 aspect ratio.
While Apple, Samsung, and Google launch phones in the $900 to $1,000 range, others continue to compete in the sub-$300 market.
Samsung has launched the Galaxy A8 Star in India for a starting price of Rs 34,990. The OnePlus 6 features a very good camera, but more importantly it offers plenty of power, with a fast Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor and a whopping 6 GB of RAM, which is ideal for multitasking. It's not just viewer feedback, either; I listen to a lot of tech podcasts, and almost every time the Galaxy Note 9 was brought up in conversation this week, another smartphone was hot on the tongue of the next host: the OnePlus 6. On the front, the A8 Star rocks a 24MP shooter with f/2.0 aperture. The device comes with the rear-facing fingerprint sensor and also offers face unlock support.
Rogers, Telus and Bell are selling the Galaxy Note 9 both with and without a contract.
Samsung Galaxy A8 Star has all the connectivity options you'd expect in a 2018 smartphone, ranging from Wi-Fi 802.11a/b/g/n/ac to USB Type-C.
It can also be used for making mobile payments using Samsung Pay.
The camera arrangement on the Galaxy A8 Star houses two sensors on the rear - a primary 16-megapixel f/1.7 lens and another 24-megapixel snapper for depth-sensing. Samsung said the device that comes with a Bluetooth-equipped stylus along with a whopping 4,000 mAh battery, will be released in 120 countries by early September. The Galaxy Smart Watch will be available in colour options such as Rose Gold, Silver and Midnight Black.
