The Samsung Galaxy A8s has been subjected to a couple of leaks since its announcement at the Samsung Developers Conference (SDC). With just three days to go until its official launch, live images of the smartphone appeared today on Chinese regulatory agency TENAA.
From the attached images, the front of the device seems to match with the design in Samsung’s official teasers. Though clearly not visible, the cut-out display hole can be seen at the top left corner of the display that will house the selfie camera. The display will be called as Infinity-O and will be the first device from the company to feature this display design. There will be slim side bezels and a small chin.
The rear seems to have a curved design for an improved grip. There is a triple camera setup stacked in a vertical position with an LED flash on the top left corner. The middle camera seems to have a ring LED light around it. It is accompanied by an oval fingerprint scanner at the centre for security.
Samsung will be going for an Aluminium frame for the A8s featuring the volume rocker and power key on the right side while housing a dedicated Bixby button on the left side. There will be a speaker and USB Type-C at the bottom but there is no sign of a 3.5 mm headphone jack. The device on the images is shown in a silver gradient color.
The South Korean giant will officially unveil the smartphone on December 10 in China where it is expected to be available in a number of gradient colours. Though it will initially be exclusive to China, it is expected to be launched in other global markets eventually. It will be competing against the Lenovo Z5s and Huawei Nova 4, both having a similar cut-out notch on the display.
