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 company8217;s future phones, it looks like it may never need to consider one either.
According to prolific leaker Ice Universe, Samsung’s 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 you’re trying to watch Netflix, of course, but you can’t say Samsung isn’t trying something different.
In any case, we should get a good look at the Galaxy A8s very soon, with the tweet clearly showing the words “December 10” at the bottom. That’s just under a week away, so some time to get in a bit of old-fashioned speculation.
Rumour has it that this will be Samsung’s first handset to feature the Snapdragon 710 SoC, along with the same triple-camera array that first debuted on the Galaxy A7.
More than likely it’ll 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 hasn’t even brought Android Pie onto its flagship Galaxy S9 and Galaxy Note 9 handsets yet, and it wouldn’t be a great look for a mid-ranger to be stealing their thunder.
