New leak reportedly shows Galaxy A8s screen protector with corner hole

Samsung’s first official reveal that it will be bringing displays with notches to the market came at its developer conference earlier this month. One of these displays, dubbed Infinity-O, will have a hole in the corner of the screen for the front camera, and it’s expected to debut on the Galaxy A8s that Samsung teased at its Galaxy A9 (2018) launch event in China. We recently got a possible glimpse at the Galaxy A8s display assembly, and a new leak is now claiming to show a screen protector for the device.

Samsung’s mint display with the hole

The screen protector in the new leak looks more legit than the Galaxy A8s display assembly. The hole in the top left corner of the display seems to be quite big, with one rumor claiming it’s about 6.7 mm in size. However, the bezels below and above the display are noticeably smaller than any current Samsung phone with an Infinity display. But that hole will still be an eyesore, and it will be interesting to see how Samsung will go about ensuring the hole doesn’t become too much of an obstacle in the viewing experience.

Check out the picture of the screen protector below, then tell us in the comments whether you think it’s the real deal and your thoughts on Samsung’s imminent entry in the market of notched smartphones.
