(Samsung Galaxy A8s Review)
Samsung Galaxy A8s: release date and specifications:
Infinity-O technology envisions the emergence of smartphones with bezel-less screens, in which massive cutouts will be replaced by small holes for the front camera. One of the first devices on the market should be the Samsung Galaxy A8s – a mid-range model with interesting characteristics, which will be told by “KP”.
Samsung Galaxy A8s release date:
Samsung Galaxy A8s Review, sources say, should be presented at the end of December 2018. And there is a high probability that it will be so. First, Samsung would like to introduce the first commercial device with a leaky screen and overtake Huawei with its Nova 4.
Second, the phone is already registered in the FCC database with model number SM-G8870. That is, it is already a production model. The device should reach the Russian market in the first quarter of 2019.
The price of new items from Samsung has not yet been officially announced, but already now we can assume how much the smartphone will cost in Europe.
The phone will belong to the A-series and will have a fairly average (for Samsung) price. Samsung Galaxy A8 (2018) can now be purchased for 249.90 EUR. But in terms of A8s, it will be closer in characteristics to the older A9 model and differ in a fashionable display.
This means that it will hardly be sold in Europe About 400 EUR.
Samsung Galaxy A8s review should get an AMOLED screen with minimal bezels and a 6.39-inch diagonal. The presence of a hole for the front camera is confirmed by the protective glass, the photo of which is linked by Slashleaks. By the way, it demonstrates not only the Infinity-O “peephole” in the left corner but also a miniature cutout in the upper edge for the earpiece, which will not appear on the screen.
The dimensions of the Galaxy A8s will be 159.11 x 74.88 x 7.38 mm. It is known that the phone will be presented in several colors, but so far it is known about the black and gray colors.
Interestingly, according to insiders, the Samsung Galaxy A8s will receive a Qualcomm-made chipset, not the South Korean manufacturer’s processors. The “heart” of the smartphone will be the Snapdragon 710, a mid-range performance chipset.
It will work alongside 6GB LPDDR4 RAM and 128GB internal storage. There should be a microSD card slot. What will upset many is the alleged abolition of the 3.5mm audio jack. According to Gizchina, Samsung decided to take this step to highlight the novelty of the smartphone and fuel demand for its own production of Bluetooth headphones.
Perhaps the Samsung Galaxy A8s will be the company’s first smartphone with an on-screen fingerprint scanner. Also, the phone can receive the main photo module of three sensors.
The battery capacity will be 3500 mAh. Most likely, there will be support for fast charging, but the availability of wireless is questionable.
