The Samsung A8s, which is rumored to debut next month, surfaced on the web again, which proves the in-display punch hole cutout design once again. However, the “Infinity-O” shaped punch hole isn’t in the middle of the screen top, but in the top left corner. According to some netizens familiar with Samsung, the Samsung A8s will still adopt ultra narrow notch design with the width of only around the 3-4mm, so it will have a very high screen to body ratio. Besides, the Samsung A8s will be equipped with Snapdragon 710 processor and it will provide 5 gradient color options.

The ultra narrow notch

Although Slashleaks, a foreign disclosure website, has previously described the perforated display with the front camera in the center of the screen as Samsung A8s. But according to Samsung insiders, it's the real Samsung A8s with the infinity O shaped screen and the front camera with the hole in the upper left corner, which is exactly consistent with the previously leaked design and rendering drawings.

At the same time, according to the netizen, who is familiar with Samsung, said that Samsung A8s also have ultra-narrow border design.The left and right border is narrower than the Samsung Note 9, and the phone's jaw is around 3-4mm. This means that if the news is true, then Samsung's A8s' chin is even narrower than that Honor 8X with 4.2mm jaw, plus the process of digging holes under the screen. So according to the well-known whistleblower @ice universe,the actual proportion of the device's screen can kill all current mobile phones.

Rear-mounted fingerprint unlock

According to Samsung insiders previously disclosed on Weibo. The Samsung A8s this time has a infinity O special-shaped screen that is 6.4 inches in size, supports FHD resolution and uses a LCD panel, and a aspect ratio of 19.5 : 9. However, the Samsung device, which does not carry off-screen fingerprint technology, is still a post-fingerprint design, but the fingerprint unlocking button was changed to a vertical ova.

Samsung's A8s will also introduce the Samsung A7 (2018) three-photo configuration, also known as the 24MP+ 8MP+5MP three-photo combination. At the same time, the device will be upgraded to the Snapdragon 710. You can be sure it will be the start of 6GB memory, At least 6+ 128GB storage combinations will be available, and perhaps 8 +128GB top versions will be available.

Price is the key to success or failure

Samsung A8s also has a thin fuselage, reportedly only about 7.1mm thick, blue powder gradient, green gradient, gray and black gradient and other five color styles are available. However, it is not clear whether Samsung's A8s will be pre-installed with a new One UI system, but there should be no doubt about the gesture.

It is reported that Samsung's A8s phone model is SM-G8870, and the latest firmware beta version is G8870ZCU0ARK2.  And according to the information previously revealed by the Samsung President of Greater China, Quan Guixian, Samsung A8s will released at the end of this year. As for the price concern, although there have been reports in the past that it may be around 3,000 yuan, it has not been confirmed. And from the point of the performance of Samsung in the domestic market this year, Samsung A8s whether can win the favour of domestic consumers, the price still will be a decisive factor.
