Samsung Galaxy A8s Leaks With Punch Hole Infinity-O Display For Selfie Camera
Samsung mobile chief DJ Koh has gone on record as saying that its mid-range smartphones would be receiving more innovative features as its flagship sales have been slipping. That is clearly on display with the upcoming Galaxy A8s, which has leaked to the internet courtesy of China's TENAA regulatory agency.
Images filed with TENAA clearly show that the Galaxy A8x will be one of the first smartphones to feature Samsung's new Infinity-O display. While it's hard to see with the original images, there is a punch hole cutout in the top left corner of the display for the 24MP selfie camera. This will allow Samsung to achieve an enviable screen-to-body ratio without resorting to a display notch (which has garnered plenty of critics over the past year).
Moving around to the back of the phone, we can clearly see a center-mounted fingerprint reader above the Samsung logo. Also pictured is a triple-camera setup with an LED flash positioned directly below. According to previous reports, the cameras consist of a 24MP primary lens, 10MP ultra-wide lens and a 5MP depth sensor.
In addition to the revelation of the Infinity-O display and the details on the back of the phone, specs revealed courtesy of TENAA show that Galaxy A8s will have a 6.39-inch Full HD+ display and a 3,300 mAh battery. The smartphone will reportedly be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 processor paired with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. Another item of note is a dedicated Bixby button on the left side of the phone (for better or worse).
Samsung's Galaxy A8s will makes its official debut on December 10th.
