Samsung Galaxy A8s

In the time when we are getting leaks and rumors of the Samsung Galaxy A8s smartphone, the company has finally announced the launch date of the Galaxy A8s.

Samsung on its Weibo account (spotted by @UniverseIce) shared the launch poster of the handset revealing December 10 launch date. The company, however, did not mention any other information regarding the device.

The highlight feature of the Galaxy A8s is its front design which carries a selfie camera hole on its display. We are going to see this design for the time. Previously, we’ve seen some smartphones with innovative design to house the front camera such as the Vivo NEX, Oppo Find X and the Xiaomi Mi MIX 3.

Information surfacing online confirms that the Samsung Galaxy A8s will sport an Infinity-O FHD+ display. So it’ll be the first Samsung smartphone to come with the Super AMOLED display and a punch-hole camera design.

We also reported that Samsung might use the same camera hole design in its Galaxy S10 Lite and S10+. The Galaxy S10 Plus has dual front cameras, so the camera hole design is slightly different.

It’s worth mentioning that Samsung is not the only company working on this punch-hole camera design. Huawei Nova 4 and Lenovo Z5s will also feature a similar design. Huawei Nova 4 will be launched on December 17.

So, it’ll be interesting to see the fight between these big OEMs for this innovative design.
