The Samsung Galaxy A8s in Australia has already been introduced – sporting an anticipated Infinity-O display with a plethora of fully-baked features an entirely new design. The Infinity-O display is A8s’ biggest differentiating point but the fact that it’s housing an amazing bezel-less display screen alongside a small hole for a FaceTime sensor. With the new hole-in-screen, Samsung calls it an Infinity-O display as the company is trying to change the things up by letting go of the wide and waterdrop-like notch trend.

Design and Display
As we have already seen that Apple, OnePlus, Google and all other top-tier brands have adopted a concept of a notch for their coolest and greatest flagship smartphone, Samsung so far has steered clear of that trend. That doesn’t really mean that Samsung won’t build devices with an edge-to-edge screen. Well, instead of using a notch, Samsung turned their head towards a smartphone with a hole in the screen.
The A8s is expected to be Samsung’s first smartphone to come with edge-to-edge display alongside a small circular cutout in the top left corner of the smartphone for FaceTime sensor (as mentioned above).
According to the most recent teaser image, the cutout is tucked neatly up in the top-left corner and seems to only contain a front-facing camera. The recently leaked image matches the look of a leaked piece of glass screen or screen protector which initially gave us an idea of how will A8s look like.
Outback, you’ll see a tri-camera setup stacked vertically and a fingerprint reader situated in the center of the phone. The bottom side is covered by USB Type-C port, speaker grille, and a microphone whereas power and volume buttons are mounted on the right edge.
Display-wise, it’s expected to measure 6.4-inches screen with a Full HD+ resolution and is potentially an LCD panel instead of Samsung’s own OLED screens. Chances are, a circular hole will apparently measure 6.7mm in diameter and may resemble Samsung Galaxy S10.
The Galaxy S10’s cutout, on the other hand, is rumored to be 2 or 3 millimeters smaller as compared to Galaxy A8s’ cutout.
Taking a quick look at the rest of the details we have heard, it’s Dual-SIM, dual-standby a smartphone which runs on Android 9.0 Pie and housing a 6.4-inches 1080 x 2340 pixels Full HD+ screen with an aspect ratio of 19.5:9.
It’s powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 710 Chipset which is partnered with Adreno 616 GPU and 6GB/8GB of RAM. The onboard memory offered is set 128GB (expandable further up to 256GB via microSD card).
Now jumping on a camera department, it’s coming up with a 24MP main sensor with a 10MP telephoto sensor and 5MP sensor with an aperture of f/1.7 + f/2.4 + f/2.2 respectively. And out front, you’ll see a solid 24MP sensor for selfies and videos. The total amount of battery is expected 3400mAh with fast charging support and connectivity options include NFC support and there is no 3.5mm headphone jack.
