Samsung announced the Galaxy A9 Star in China, later rebranded and launched as Galaxy A8 Star in the Philippines. The phone with dual rear cameras on the side and a square fingerprint scanner in the middle of the panel is now arriving in India, according to an Amazon teaser.

The phone is listed as Samsung Star, but likely will adopt the Galaxy moniker once everything is cleared out. Amazon emphasized on the dual cameras that “shines day and night,” most likely because of the wide-open f/1.7 aperture of the 16 MP + 24 MP vertical setup.
Coming with a 3,700 mAh battery, the Galaxy A8 Star is said to be “always alive.” The capacity is way above average for Samsung smartphones, but you might have trouble quick-charging it if it stays with QC 2.0 like the flagship Galaxy Note9. Other specs include Snapdragon 660 chipset, 6.3” Super AMOLED screen, and a 24 MP f/2.0 selfie shooter.

Amazon says the upcoming phone is “shining soon,” without clarifying any exact launch dates. At least the price is known to be in the INR30,000s, which means the Galaxy A8 Star will be offered in India for no less than $430/€373.
