Samsung is expected to launch the Galaxy A8s in China in early 2019. The phone’s rumored Infinity-O display seems to be confirmed by an FCC listing for the device. Also visible is Samsung’s new 19.5:9 screen aspect ratio.

Galaxy A8s visits the FCC

Today, the FCC published its documentation on Samsung’s upcoming SM-G8870 or the Galaxy A8s as it is likely to be called. We do not get to see the actual device, but a screenshot still manages to confirm two rumored details. First, the screenshot in the documents appears to have a 19.5:9 ratio. This is similar to the details that recently surfaced of another upcoming Samsung device, the M20.

Furthermore, as the guys over at GalaxyClub point out, the top left corner of the screen is left empty. There are notifications visible in the status bar, but not in the corner. This is as we would expect of a device with a notch or a hole in that part of the display. After all, the Galaxy A8s is rumored to come with Samsung’s first Infinity-O display.

The Galaxy A8s is likely to be a China-only device. However, we might see the same design in several of Samsung’s other new models. Not only are there the Galaxy M20 and M30, but we recently also provided the first details of the upcoming Galaxy A30 and A50. Though not all of these phones might have an Infinity-O display, they are very likely to get some form of notch-like Samsung’s Infinity-V and -U display types suggest.

The Galaxy A8s itself is rumored to feature a 6.39-inch TFT LCD display and could be Samsung’s first phone with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 710 soc. Memory-wise, the A8s should have 6GB of RAM and 128GB storage. A triple camera can be found on the back, while the front camera-in-a-hole should have a 24-megapixel sensor. A 3400 mAh battery completes this package. The official Chinese launch is expected in January 2019.
