Samsung's Galaxy Note 9 and Galaxy Watch hit stores today

Samsung Galaxy A8 Star Price Revealed Ahead of India Launch; To be Sold Online as Amazon Exclusive

The Galaxy A8 Star features a 6.3-inch Full HD+ Infinity Display. The sale of the smartphone will begin through Amazon India on August 27.

Samsung has teamed with Ninja to promote the brand's newest phone.

The new Galaxy A8 Star also features the Dual Messenger that enables users to create separate messenger accounts on the same phone for official and personal usage.

Samsung's Galaxy Note 9 releases today, and the brand has employed the services of Twitch's most popular streamer Tyler "Ninja" Blevins to generate excitement for the product. Likely to be priced similar to OnePlus 6, the new Samsung A8 Star smartphone will take on recently launched Pocophone F1 and Asus Zenfone 5z.

It comes with the metal frame featuring 2.5D curved glass on the front and rear.

Powering the Galaxy A8 Star is a 2.2GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 chipset, which is the same as the one powering the Nokia 7 Plus. It features Samsung's Dual Rear IntelliCam camera setup as well as a selfie camera supporting proprietary features such as Pro Lighting and Smart Beauty. There is a microSD card slot, naturally.

Though the Samsung Galaxy A8 Star comes with a good camera and lovely design language, it will have a tough time competing with the recently launched Poco F1, that comes with super powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 and a massive 4,000mAh battery. It supports USB Type-C and fast charging support.

Samsung claims that Galaxy A8 Star's rear camera can intelligently adapt to lighting conditions and choose the ideal lens, according to the prevailing conditions. Up front, the Galaxy A8 Star gets a 24-megapixel sensor with f/2.0. With the Galaxy A8 Star, Samsung has offered Bixby integration, which is Samsung's own virtual assistant.
