In pursuit of all-screen smartphones, company’s are getting really clever in terms of design. We have started with in-display scanners, which allowed devices to have smaller chins.
But now, Android OEMs will try to also eliminate the notch by also embedding the front-facing camera right within the display.
Previously, we reported that Huawei will introduce the Nova 4 on December 17, which we thought is going to be the first official device to have the in-display front camera. But now, Samsung will undermine Huawei as they will announce the Galaxy A8s seven days earlier than the Nova 4.
We expect to see Samsung’s newest midrange device on December 10. In the latest teaser outed, Samsung both confirmed the launch date, as well as the tiny hole on the upper left on the screen, which houses the device’s selfie camera.
Both the screen panel on the Huawei Nova 4 and the Samsung Galaxy A8s will come from the same manufacturer in China. However, it’s rumored that Samsung’s offering will be using a more premium display.
No official word about the specs yet. Although, since it’s expected to be a premium midrange smartphone, it’s speculated to come with a Snapdragon 710 processor with up to 6GB of RAM.
The screen itself will be at 6.3-inches with a resolution of 2340 x 1080 pixels, while the camera attached to it has a 24-megapixel sensor. There’s also a huge chance that it will come with a triple-camera setup on the back, just like what we saw on the Galaxy A7 2018.
But then again, these are just speculations. We’ll be learning more about the Samsung Galaxy A8s once it becomes official on December 10.
