Samsung Galaxy A8s could be the first phone with an Infinity-O display hole

Samsung has recently been taking the interesting approach of testing out their most special features on their midrange devices. At this year’s Samsung Developer Conference, we got to know their new display technologies like the Infinity-O display, on the upcoming Samsung Galaxy A8s.

Samsung introduced four new display technologies on stage, including the Infinity-U display (with a teardrop notch), the Infinity-V display (with a V-shaped notch), the Infinity-O display (with a cornered display hole) and the New Infinity display (with under-screen sensors).

If rumors are true, then the upcoming Samsung Galaxy A8s will be the first Samsung device to feature the Infinity-O configuration with a display hole for the front-facing camera. The display hole would allow Samsung to remove the top bezel entirely and make room for a 6.39-inch 19.5:9 FHD+ display manufactured by BOE.

As for the rest of the specifications, we have a Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 processor under the hood, coupled with 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage. It keeps a similar camera setup to the Galaxy A7, and the front-facing camera inside the display hole is 24MP with a 6.4mm diameter. Unfortunately, we haven’t seen any official renders leak, and what we’re seeing floating around the internet are simple concepts.

The device is expected to be announced in January 2019, and given that the Galaxy S10 line of smartphones is expected to have Infinity-O displays, it’s quite possible we’ll be seeing it first on a mid-range device.
