The mysterious Samsung handset that was previously expected to debut as the Galaxy A8 Star Lite is now rumoured to debut as the Galaxy A9 Star. The handset with model number SM-G8850 has been spotted in a brief hands-on video. Interestingly, the model in question surfaced on China’s 3C (Compulsory Certification of China) certification website earlier this month alongside the SM-G8750 model that was previously reported to come as the Galaxy A8 Lite. Some live images also leaked online that are rumoured to be related to the Galaxy A9 Star and Galaxy A9 Star Lite.

As per the hands-on video posted by SlashLeak folks on YouTube, the Samsung handset with SM-G8850 model number appears to have a glass back panel with Samsung branding and a fingerprint sensor. There is also a dual rear camera setup accompanied by an LED flash module. The front panel of the handset, on the other hand, shows a thin-bezel display along with an earpiece and a secondary camera. The appearance of the Samsung phone in the hands-on video matches the images that emerged on 3C website.

While the YouTube video doesn’t confirm the product name, a Weibo post claimed that the SM-G8850 will be launched as the Samsung Galaxy A9 Star. The same model was earlier reported as the Galaxy A8 Star. It was also initially rumoured as the Galaxy S9 Mini.
