Samsung to Launch a new A series phone to rival OnePlus 6. Is it A9 Star?

Published

on

From a report by Counterpoint, OnePlus 6 is the top leading smartphone in India in the premium smartphone market. The company has taken over Samsung for the first time in a full quarter in Q2 2018 in India with 40 percent market share. In the budget segment, Samsung is also facing a lot of stiff competition from other Chinese manufacturers like Xiaomi, Vivo, OPPO and Huawei Honor.

Samsung launched the Galaxy A8+ earlier this year to compete against the OnePlus 5T. Despite featuring an Infinity display and powered by Exynos 7882, it failed to stand it’s ground against the OnePlus flagship with a similar price tag of Rs 33,000.

Now a new report from IANS reveals that Samsung is planning to launch a new Galaxy A series smartphone in the country. It will be placed in the premium segment with a price tag of around Rs 30,000 or above. Xiaomi has recently teased it’s POCO brand in India whose first smartphone Pocophone F1 has been getting a lot of attention. Samsung wouldn’t want Xiaomi to make a strong dominance in this segment also.

From the report, the upcoming smartphone will feature a 6.3 inch Full HD+ AMOLED Infinity Display with sleek bezels on side. It will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 chipset coupled with 6GB RAM and 64GB internal storage with further expandable options via a microSD card. From these descriptions, we can assume that the phone that is going to be launched is the Samsung Galaxy A9 Star which was launched earlier in China.

It will sport a dual camera setup of 24MP + 16MP in the rear with Samsung Live Focus feature while the front will offer a 24MP camera for selfies and video calling. The yet-to-be announced smartphone will be going  against the likes of OnePlus 6, Asus Zenfone 5Z, Huawei Nova 3 and the Xiaomi Pocophone F1.
