Samsung Galaxy A8s Renders Show Infinity O Display
At the launch of the Galaxy A6s and the Galaxy A9s a few weeks back, Samsung had also shown-off an exciting new smartphone. A glimpse of the Galaxy A8s was seen, and the phone bears an almost bezel-less display. This was without any notches, sliders or pop-up cameras. It was later revealed that this is the new Infinity O display by Samsung and it features a camera cut-out. Now, AllAboutSamsung has developed a few renders to give us a better look at what the smartphone will look like.
Right off the bat, we can see that the design features a camera cut-out on the display. It has extremely thin bezels, with those on the top almost reaching the edge. The bottom chin is slightly thicker when compared to the top bezels, but it seems to be similar to what we see on the Galaxy S9.
The camera cut-out is placed off-centre, on the right-top side of the phone. This is an unconventional position for the front camera and might bring with itself some issues. For example, people might have to get used to clicking selfies with a camera sensor that is not positioned in the middle. While this is not such a major issue, doing so every time can be irritating. Again, it is possible that Samsung has worked its way around this issue and has introduced some software or hardware improvements to ensure this does not happen.
Other than the camera cut-out, the phone is pretty much consistent with Samsung’s regular design language. It sports a triple camera setup at the back, much like the Galaxy A7. The fingerprint sensor is bit different, with a more elliptical shape, rather than a rectangular sensor. Sources also claim that the phone will be available in Gradient colours, like the Galaxy A9.
The camera cut-out sure looks unique, to say the least. But this does quash any dreams about the in-display camera technology that Samsung was developing. However, it is possible that we may say this technology on the upcoming Galaxy S10. However, all will be known as we get closer to the launch of the Galaxy A8s, which is reported to be in January 2019.
