Samsung embraces gradient colors with the Galaxy A9 Star


Last updated: September 10th, 2018 at 10:12 UTC+02:00

Some manufacturers have been doing interesting things in the color department for their smartphones. The iridescent HTC U11 stood out because of its striking paint job. Huawei kicked things up a notch with its unique gradient finish. Others have gone down this road as well and now Samsung is embracing gradient colors as well.

New images out of China reveal that the company is soon going to offer a gradient color option for the Galaxy A9 Star. Samsung officially launched the Galaxy A9 Star in China three months ago.

Galaxy A9 Star gets a gradient color option

The Galaxy A9 Star is a premium mid-range smartphone with a 6.3-inch FHD+ Infinity Display, a 2.2GHz processor with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. It has a 24-megapixel + 16-megapixel dual camera system at the back in addition to a 16-megapixel selfie camera.

There’s a 3,700mAh battery as well. It’s also the first non-flagship smartphone from Samsung to get the full Bixby experience. Bixby Voice is onboard alongside Vision, Reminder and Home. It comes with a dedicated Bixby button as well like Samsung’s flagship smartphones.

These images of the Galaxy A9 Star show an eye-catching purple and pink gradient paint job for the device. It certainly makes the handset look unique and more striking compared to conventional color options.

Since the Galaxy A9 Star is only available in China right now this color option will be limited to the People’s Republic as well. It’s expected to be available in China later this week. Samsung is selling the same device as the Galaxy A8 Star in other regions but there’s nothing to suggest that the gradient color option will be released in other markets.

Samsung has likely done this in response to Chinese rivals as it seeks to better compete against them on their home turf. Whether or not it plans to offer gradient colors with other devices elsewhere remains to be seen.
