Samsung teases Galaxy A8s with a Display Hole for Front Camera

Published

on

Samsung has recently shown an innovative behaviour towards its Galaxy A-series, by launching the Galaxy A7 2018 with Triple rear cameras, followed by the recent Galaxy A9 (2018) with Quad rear cameras that too way before using it in its S and Note-series flagships. Following the same, the Korean giant is now thinking to raise the ante of its A-series further by bringing the Samsung Galaxy A8s with a display hole which will work as a substitute for Notch and will house the front camera.

The hint for the Galaxy A8s came from the company itself, during the launch event of Galaxy A9s and Galaxy A6s in China yesterday, on Wednesday, where it teased this new upcoming device as well. The device is most probably going to come with an edge-to-edge display with ultra-thin bezels (no bottom chin as per the teaser image), the front camera including ambient light and proximity sensors will be housed by the small hole present on the top corner of the display, rectifying the need of Notch for the purpose it’s being used.

Except for the basic design outline, the company didn’t reveal any other hardware specific things of the Galaxy A8s, however, they made it clear that this upcoming device will come with a “first-time adoption” technology.

The guys at SamMobile have also come up with the renders of the upcoming device which indicates that the hole will be drilled into the display to occupy the required things like a front shooter, proximity, ambient light and any other sensor maybe. Now, this is not a huge surprise to us because it has been already confirmed from previous reports that the company was working on various In-display technologies including In-display fingerprint scanner, under-screen cameras, screen-sound technology, and touch-sensitive technology. Further, it is also speculated that the A8s will make use of the screen as its earpiece for attending calls and more. Indeed, it is going to be an interesting thing to see.

The implementation of this new technology will allow Samsung to provide for a full-screen experience to its consumers without using Notch (which of course was hated by many). In the end, Samsung is a company with huge R&D and innovations in past, and we expect it to further revolutionize the mobile industry. Stay tuned for more updates.

Huawei-Nova-4-tenaa

The Huawei Nova 4, which was showcased two weeks ago ahead of its launch last dayhas been spotted on TENAA ahead of it’s launch, which is scheduled for December 17, a week after the launch of Honor View 20. Both the smartphones will be sharing the same camera hole design for the front camera.

From the images posted by TENAA, we can easily make-out the “48MP AI Camera” label on the Huawei Nova 4, which must be the same camera sensor from that of Honor View 20 which was showed off recently. It does come with a triple camera setup.

The full specifications of the Huawei Nova 4 are not yet revealed completely by TENAA. But it is highly speculated that the Nova 4 will be powered by a flagship Kirin 980 chipset, same as in the Honor View 10. It features a 6.41 inch display, which is expected to be an LCD display sourced from BOE. The whole device is backed by a huge 3,900mAh battery, as per the latest information from TENAA.

The rear triple cameras are mounted vertically at the left side, with the flash beneath it. From the images posted by TENAA, we can see that the fingerprint sensor on board the Nova 4 is placed in the rear. Also, the images reveals that the Nova 4 will be having thin bezels on all three sides except the bottom. Since the Nova 4 has completely ditched the notch with the camera hole design, it is expected to skimp the IR based face unlock system which is seen in most of the latest flagship devices.

While there is no official confirmation about the pricing of the Nova 4, it is expected to be around Rs. 35,000-40,000 in the Indian market. We will update further specifications of the Nova 4 once it is revealed by TENAA.

Under the hood, the Honor view 20 will be powered by a Huawei’s latest Kirin 980 chipset that has dual ISP and dual-NPU technology for better AI computing and graphics processing power. This will come handy while clicking multiple photos from the 48MP camera resulting in a 48MP AI high-definition image.

The top-of the line Kirin 980 chipset is the world’s first processor based on 7nm process resulting in a 20 percent improved performance and 40 percent improved efficiency. It consists of an octa-core chipset with two ARM Cortex A76 high-performance cores that are clocked at 2.6 GHz, two ARM Cortex A76 cores clocked at 1.92 GHz and four ARM Cortex A55 cores clocked at 1.8 GHz for power efficiency.

Furthermore, with this smartphone Honor will be introducing the latest All-View Display that comes with an in-screen front camera design. The company says it has been achieved through complex 18-layer technology stacks that embed the front camera in the display resulting in an almost bezels less design and high screen-to-body ratio. As for the Link Turbo technology, it leverages AI to analyse user’s model and network conditions to switch seamlessly between Wi-Fi or 4G networks which in turn will boost downloading speed by simultaneously adopting both networks. It seems that Honor View 20 creates a benchmark on its own which takes smartphone photography to a whole new level.

We have been getting leaks from various sources regarding Samsung’s plans to unveil a brand new “M” series of smartphones. The rumor has it that this new M series could replace the current J series which is known for its budget range of devices.

According to the latest leaks, the Galaxy M10 and Galaxy M20 which will be the first devices in the M series, are expected to have an aggressive pricing. It appears like the Galaxy M10 would cost less than Rs.10,000 and the Galaxy M20 is expected to be priced under Rs.15,000. If the devices are launched in this price bracket, it could face serious competition from devices like the Xiaomi’s Redmi Note 6 Pro.

If the devices are not packed with decent specifications, it can hardly sustain in this price segment as there is heavy competition among various brands in this particular range. The key attraction of these devices is the fact that these devices will be manufactured in India as reported earlier which would help the brand to lower down the import costs.

The key specifications of the Galaxy M20 have been leaked already, thanks to the device’s Geekbench appearance. The device sports comes with the codename SM-M205F and it will be powered by the Samsung’s own octa-core Exynos 7885 chipset and 3GB of RAM.
