Samsung earlier revealed its 2019 roadmap with bezel-less and notch-less designs in the recently concluded Samsung Developer Conference. It has come with prototype designs for displays sporting U-shaped, V-shaped and O-shaped front camera holes along with a new Infinity design which is touted to be the full end-to-end display which the company eventually aims to achieve.
Infinity – O display to feature first in Samsung Galaxy A8s?
Now, news has been making rounds that Samsung is ready with its first smartphone sporting the Infinity-O display. As per the reports, the new Samsung Galaxy A8s will be the company’s first phone to include an Infinity-O design.
Huawei was also eager to showcase their new smartphone Huawei Nova 4 which features a strikingly similar design. Huawei has already announced the launch of Nova phones on December 17. So Samsung has also hastened things up by scheduling the launch of their Galaxy A8s on December 10.
Coming to the design, the new Samsung Galaxy A8s will have a small hole which houses the front camera and this hole will be placed close to the left corner of the handset. This design is expected to give a better viewing experience but how it affects the display of applications and notifications is yet to be figured out.
Samsung Galaxy A8s Expected Features
The Samsung Galaxy A8s is expected to boast a 6.39-inch display with an aspect ratio of 19.5:9. This phone is expected to run on Snapdragon 710 chipset and might come with Android Oreo 8.1 out of the box. The phone might come with 6GB RAM and 128GB internal storage option that can be expanded up to 512GB with a microSD card.
This phone is also rumored to include the triple camera setup like the one found on Samsung A7(2018) consisting of a 24MP primary sensor supported by 5MP and 10MP shooters. It is also rumored to house a battery of capacity 3400 mAh.
