If 2018 was the year of the notch, 2019 looks like it'll be the year of hole-punch cameras. Following the announcement of the Honor View 20, Samsung's also unveiled its new Galaxy A8s.
The Galaxy A8s was just announced in China and is the first device to use Samsung's Infinity-O screen that was announced at the Samsung Developer Conference In November. While technically still a display with a notch, Infinity-O ditches the expected black bar in the top-middle of the screen for a small hole-punch-like cutout for the camera near the far left corner. It's not as futuristic as devices like the Oppo Find X and Vivo NEX, but it is a lot cleaner than Apple's iPhone X notch that's been copied to death at this point by other Android OEMs.
The display surrounding the camera cutout is a 6.4-inch panel with a resolution fo 2340 x 1080. Qualcomm's Snapdragon 710 is powering the phone, along with 6 or 8GB of RAM, 128GB of expandable storage, a 3,400 mAh battery, and Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box.
On the camera side of things, you'll find a 24MP primary sensor, 10MP telephoto lens, and 5MP depth sensor on the back. Around front is a single 24MP selfie camera.
You can pre-order the Galaxy A8s in China right now, but at the time of publishing this article, there's no word on its availability in other parts of the world. If/when that changes, we'll let you know.
