Samsung has officially announced the Galaxy A8s, the first of the company’s first handsets to feature its hole punch screen technology, otherwise known as the ‘Infinity-O’ display.
The Samsung Galaxy A8s sports a Snapdragon 710 processor with up to 8GB of RAM and 128GB storage that’s expandable up to 512GB. Additionally, the handset features a 6.4-inch (2,340 x 1,080-pixel resolution) Full HD+ LCD IPS display with a hole in the top left of the display for the phone’s 24MP f/2.0 selfie shooter. On the rear, the phone hosts a triple rear-facing camera setup that includes a 24MP f/1.7 main sensor, as well as 5MP f/2.2 (depth) and 10MP f/2.0 (2x optical zoom) sensors.
Further, on the rear is the handset’s fingerprint scanner, which means the phone does not feature in-display handset. The device also includes a 3,400mAh battery and in a surprising move, lacks the 3.5mm headphone jack.
The Samsung Galaxy A8s will be available starting December 21st in select markets and is available in Blue, Grey and Green.
