Rumors about Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy A8s have been making the rounds for a while now. The company’s A-series caters to the mid-range segment and doesn’t have top-of-the-line features. The Samsung Galaxy A8s was recently certified by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), in the United States.
The listing reveals some specifications of the device, including a 6.3-inch FullHD+ display with 1080×2340 pixels resolution. The phone will have a 19.5:9 aspect ratio. The Galaxy A8s will be the first phone to come with the ‘Infinity-O’ display. The new ‘Infinity-O’ display is one of the three new types of displays that Samsung intends to use on its future smartphones. the ‘Infinity-O’ design consists of a hole ‘punched’ into the smartphone’s display panel, which will be under the front-facing camera, which will lead to true bezel-less display without the need for a notch.
Under the hood, the phone is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 710 SoC with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage expandable up to 512GB via a microSD card slot. Samsung Galaxy A8s could come with a rear tri-lens camera system and will have 24MP + 10MP + 5MP sensors, and a front 24MP lens for clicking selfies and making video calls. The phone will pack a 3,400mAh battery.
Samsung hasn’t detailed anything about the upcoming Galaxy A8s yet, but with the FCC certification, the phone’s launch seems imminent.
