Starting with the bigger Galaxy A9 Star, It has a big 6.28-inch Full-HD+ Super AMOLED display and an Infinity design. It rocks the Snapdragon 660 chipset and 4GB of RAM along with 64GB of internal storage. These are pretty decent specs but a bit hard to pay for looking at the OnePlus 6.
The camera is as impressive with a 24MP + 16MP arrangement on the rear. The front camera is also a 24 MP sensor. It runs Android Oreo backed by a 3,700mAh battery. Both the siblings support 4G VoLTE, dual SIM and come with fingerprint readers at the back.
On the other hand, the A9 Star Lite spec sheet is a copy paste of the Galaxy A6+ that was launched in India recently.
