Samsung Galaxy A8s is certified by FCC, screenshot reveals the camera position

Yordan, 30 November 2018

Samsung Galaxy A8s is expected to be the first phone by the Korean manufacturer with an Infinity-O display that has a cutout in the upper left corner for the selfie camera. After plenty of speculations, leaks and fan renders, the device was certified officially by the FCC under the name SM-G8870.

The listing included a screenshot that revealed the upper left corner is empty from notifications - they moved slightly to the centre.

The Samsung Galaxy A8s is also expected to have a taller screen than the Infinity Display, used in plenty of smartphones - from flagships as the Galaxy S9 to midrangers as the Galaxy A6. This time the ratio is 19.5:9, instead of 18.5:9, according to the screenshot resolution.

The Galaxy A8s is expected to arrive in China, but is seen as a device that is just testing the waters, before putting flagship hardware in the same body and launching the new phone as Galaxy S10 on the global scene.

And the phone gets taller but also narrower resembling a tv control thus making it less functional and ergonomical like the new iphones.
