Later this year, Apple plans to launch its biggest smartphone yet, a model with an nearly 6.5-inch screen that looks like a bigger iPhone X.
Samsung has unveiled two new smartphones - Galaxy A9 Star and Galaxy A9 Star Lite - in China.
Samsung has had a busy year so far with the company also launching its mid-range A8 and flagship Galaxy S9. The phone offers 3GB of RAM and 64GB onboard storage along with an expandable storage support of up to 128GB using microSD card. For much the same reason, the analyst asserted Samsung is surely already considering equipping its upcoming phablets with 3D cameras akin to those found on the front of Apple's iPhone X.
The Samsung Galaxy A9 Star sports a 6.3-inch full-HD+ (1080x2220 pixels) display with a 18.5:9.
Samsung is also working on a smart speaker coupled with its digital assistant Bixby, taking on Amazon.com Inc.'s Echo line of devices and Apple's HomePod, Bloomberg News reported previous year.
This second phone runs on Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 Mobile Platform under the hood and combines the power of Adreno 506 GPU along with 4GB of RAM.
The Galaxy A6 is powered by a 3,000mAh battery and is available in Black, Gold, Blue and Lavender colors. The Galaxy A9 Star Lite, on the other hand, has been priced at CNY 2,699 (roughly Rs. 28,200). Coming to the pricing, the Galaxy A9 Star and A9 Star Lite will be costing 3699 Yuan and 2699 Yuan respectively.
