Samsung Galaxy A8s announced as first with Infinity-O display design

The Samsung Galaxy A8s has been announced as the first from the company to feature its Infinity-O display. What this means is that the Galaxy A8s has its front-facing camera pierced directly into the display.


The Galaxy A8s comes with an extremely slim bezel, with the front mostly made up of the phone's display. There is a slight chin at the bottom, and the hole in the top left housing the front-facing camera. To accommodate the camera, the notification and other icons have been moved to the center of the status bar.


The handset features a 6.4-inch display, but Samsung has used an LCD panel here instead of the Super AMOLED display panels they are known for. You get a 1080 x 2340 pixel resolution and a 19.5: 9 aspect ratio.


Samsung Galaxy A8s - Camera
On the rear, Samsung has outfitted this device with a triple camera setup made up of a 24MP main sensor with f/1.7 aperture lens, a 10MP telephoto sensor for 2x "optical" zoom and a 5MP sensor with f/2.2 aperture lens, for depth-sensing.

On the front, the Galaxy A8s has a generous 24MP sensor with a f/2.0 aperture.


Samsung has outfitted the Galaxy A8s with 128GB of storage which can expand by an additional 512GB using microSD. You get Qualcomm's Snapdragon 710 chipset powering the device with 6GB/8GB RAM options based on your need. Additionally, the phone has a 3400mAh battery with adaptive fast charging support over USB-C.


In terms of software, we find that the Galaxy A8s will run Android 8.1 Oreo with Samsung's Experience 9 UI on top.

Release, Price, and Availability

The Samsung Galaxy A8s will be a China-exclusive smartphone for now and will be available in Blue, Gray, and Green which appear to be gradient colors. Customers will be able to pre-order the device starting December 12 and it will be released on December 21 after the pre-order period ends.

The pricing has not been revealed at this point, but we can guess it will be classed as an upper-mid-range device based on its specifications and Infinity-O display.
