Samsung Galaxy A8s With Camera Cutout Gets Certified By FCC
The Samsung Galaxy A8s was teased by Samsung earlier this month. Since then, the phone has been making headlines for its unique camera cut-out. The camera cut-out replaces the need for a notch or bezels, without the hassle of a sliding panel. The phone almost immediately found a competitor in form of the alleged Huawei Nova 4. Now, it seems like the launch of the smartphone is near as it has been certified by the FCC. This tells us some of its specifications too!
A screenshot from the FCC listing reveals some of its key specs. The phone has a 19:5:9 aspect ratio, owing to the hole in its display. This camera cut-out is located on the right side of the phone. Registered under the model number SM-G8870, the phone also has adaptive fast charging support. This is a common feature in most mid-range smartphones. The camera cut-out cannot be seen in the screenshot, but we can see that there are no notifications towards the right top corner do the smartphone. This is the exact position of the camera cut-out. It also gives us a look at how the display will look like to the user.
Earlier leaks have given us a fair idea about the device as well. The phone is said to have a 6.3 inch FHD+ display with a 2340 x 1080 px resolution, with 2.5D glass. It is said to be running on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 SoC which is based on the 10nm manufacturing process. This will be supported by the Adreno 616 GPU. It will have 6 GB of RAM and a 128 GB of storage, which is also expandable up to 512 GB, according to reports.
It is said to feature a triple camera setup on the back, like the Galaxy A7. This will include a 24 MP primary camera with a 10 MP ultra wide lens and a 5 MP depth sensor. The phone is said to feature a 24 MP front facing camera. Under the hood, it packs a 3,400 mAh battery and is said to be running Android Oreo 8.0 out of the box.
