Another interesting thing that we'd like to mention here is that Samsung might launch the Galaxy A9 Star Pro with a fingerprint sensor that is mounted towards the side of the smartphone instead of at the back.

Samsung Galaxy J6+ and J4+ come with a new Emotify feature, available in 22 Indian languages.

On the front, the smartphone gets a 5-megapixel selfie camera with an f/2.2 aperture. The company has started teasing the same on Instagram and Twitter handles, and the device in question is none other than the recently announced Galaxy A7 (2018), which comes with triple rear cameras.

Both devices will also have the "Make for India" feature, install apps to SD card.
