The Samsung Galaxy A8s has a clever way of skipping the notch

By reviews / 4. December 2018

Samsung is one of the few phone manufacturers not to follow Apple and introduce a notch to its handsets. If the upcoming Galaxy A8s is going to be the roadmap for the company’s future phones, it looks like it may never need to consider one either.

According to prolific leaker Ice Universe, Samsungs new handset will launch with a camera built into the screen itself. In the image, it appears as a small circle on the top left of the screen. That may prove just as distracting as a notch if youre trying to watch Netflix, of course, but you cant say Samsung isnt trying something different.

Well, not that different actuallyas Ice Universes tweet shows, it looks remarkably similar to Huaweis incoming Nova 4.

In any case, we should get a good look at the Galaxy A8s very soon, with the tweet clearly showing the wordsDecember 10at the bottom. Thats just under a week away, so some time to get in a bit of old-fashioned speculation.

Rumour has it that this will be Samsungs first handset to feature the Snapdragon 710 SoC, along with the same triple-camera array that first debuted on the Galaxy A7.

That camera hole in the screen is rumoured to house a 24-megapixel snapper for selfies, and its expected that all of this will be powered by a decent-sounding 3,400mAh battery.

More than likely itll be running Android Oreo, though. While it may seem odd for Samsung to push out a phone without the latest software out of the box, the company hasnt even brought Android Pie onto its flagship Galaxy S9 and Galaxy Note 9 handsets yet, and it wouldnt be a great look for a mid-ranger to be stealing their thunder.

No, its far more likely that the Samsung Galaxy S10 will be the first Pie-packed Samsung phoneand we probably wont get a good look at that until MWC 2019.
