Samsung's decision to include a Qualcomm chipset in its mid-ranged phones comes as a surprise since it has mostly used Exynos chipset all this while. According to Android Headlines, Samsung is speculated to sell Qualcomm packed chipsets only in India and China. In India, Samsung's competition in the mid-range segment comes from Xiaomi and OnePlus which are already providing SDM 845 chipsets in their devices. These include Xiaomi's Poco F1 and the OnePlus 6. The list here also includes the Asus Zenfone 5Z. These phones are mostly value for budget phones.

Meanwhile, allaboutsamsung recently reported that the new Samsung phone A9 Star Pro, which is expected to be launched on 11 October will bear four cameras. A concept render of the phone shows that it may have four cameras placed vertically on the rear of the phone and may come in three colours.
