It looks like the phone’s power and volume rocker keys will be placed on the left side, and there will be an additional key on the left side, possibly for triggering the Bixby assistant. At the bottom, the device seems to sport a 3.5mm headphone jack, a USB Type-C port, a microphone, and a speaker. Furthermore, the Galaxy A9 Star’s NCC certification suggests that the phone could come bundled with a pair of earphones alongside the wall adapter and a USB Type-C cable.

As per the earlier leaks, the Samsung Galaxy A9 Star could feature a 6.28-inch Super AMOLED full HD+ display, and boot Android Oreo out of the box. Reports suggest that the phone will be powered by a 2.2GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 SoC, aided by 4GB of RAM. The camera department is said to include a 24MP + 16MP camera setup, and a 24MP selfie shooter.
