Galaxy A8s with camera-in-display could launch on December 10

It seems Samsung has officially teased the Galaxy A8s and confirmed when the device will be announced. Leakster Ice universe has tweeted an image that shows the Galaxy A8s with its Infinity-O display along with the date December 10 at the bottom. The image seems to be an answer to one released by Huawei to tease its upcoming phone, the Nova 4, which is also expected to have a display that has a hole in the corner for the selfie camera.

In fact, one could say the A8s and Nova 4 look quite similar, with the bottom bezel being bigger than the top bezel on both devices. The Galaxy A8s' Infinity-O display has already been confirmed by the device's FCC listing, and it looks like Samsung's first smartphone with a notch-like obstruction in the display is just a week away from being unveiled. The Galaxy A8s may also be the first Galaxy with the Snapdragon 710 SoC. Other specs are expected to be similar to the Galaxy A7 (2018), including a triple-camera setup at the back. The display hole should contain a 24-megapixel front camera, and there could be a 3,400 mAh battery under the hood.

Don't expect Android Pie on the A8s, of course. That's coming in late January for the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy Note 9, while the Galaxy A8s is pegged for an early January release in China. The Galaxy S10, naturally, will be the first Samsung phone with Android Pie out of the box, and it may also have a second camera residing inside the Infinity-O display.
