Samsung Galaxy A8 Star to Go on Sale in India Today for the First Time

The Galaxy A8 Star is priced at a premium price of Rs 34,990. Additional offers include instant cashback of 5 per cent for customers purchasing the device via HDFC Bank Credit card. However, A8 Star features an underpowered Snapdragon 660 in comparison to OnePlus 6's Snapdragon 845.

Samsung has provided 64GB of onboard storage that is expandable via microSD card (up to 400GB).

One of the biggest advantages of the Galaxy A8 Star is its 6.3-inch Super AMOLED Infinity display with a resolution of 1080x2220.

"The in-screen fingerprint scanning will take center stage in the smartphone market in 2019", said Lee Dong-joo, an analyst from KTB Investment & Securities, in his previous investment report, adding most of the major fingerprint sensor makers are working with Samsung Display, a dominant player in the smartphone OLED display market, to incorporate the biometric sensor in the OLED display.

The camera is also a strong point for the Galaxy A8 Star with a Dual Rear IntelliCam on the rear panel and a massive single lens sensor on the front. The cameras on the back include a 16MP PDAF primary sensor and a 24MP secondary sensor both with f/1.7 aperture. The battery is a 3,700mAh unit. On the front, the Galaxy A8 Star gets a 24-megapixel sensor with f/2.0. The phone also gets a facial recognition feature.

The Galaxy A8 Star gets 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11ac, Bluetooth 5, GPS/ A-GPS, NFC for connectivity.

However, it's pointed out that the Galaxy Note 9's components are more modular than ever given the subtle changes made to the USB Type-C hardware, headphone jack and the flex cable of the S Pen's dock. Qualcomm, which announced the ultrasonic fingerprint sensor in 2015, is expected to provide the scanners to Samsung.
