Leaked Galaxy A8s screenshot and S10 protector tell the tale of Samsung's Infinity-O display

Leaked Galaxy A8s screenshot and S10 protector tell the tale of Samsung's Infinity-O display
Piecing together two new nuggets of information about Samsung's upcoming midrange and flagship stalwarts, we can shape its Infinity-O display design better now. First off, there is a new screen protector leak, allegedly of Samsung's "Beyond" model which is the codename for the Galaxy S10

It reiterates an incredibly slim top and bottom bezels, and non-existent side ones that hint at a curved OLED screen. Such a shaved-off topper can only be achieved by moving the front camera somewhere else, and that different placement is shaping up to be a hole in the top left of the display itself or the so-called Infinity-O concept that Samsung showed not long ago.

Samsung's first phone with such a design, however, is shaping up to be not the S10, but rather the midrange Galaxy A8s and an FCC filing for the handset, unearthed by Galaxyclub, just indirectly confirmed this. As you can see in the provided screenshot from the phone that describes the FCC labeling, there is a suspiciously offset icon set on the left side of the status bar

The notification and other icons have so far appeared on the far corner whereas here they have been moved towards the middle of the bar, freeing up space on the left... for the eventual selfie camera hole in the pierced display itself. 

We can't wait to see what other interface shenanigans Samsung may have employed to achieve its Infinity-O display design and how would such a concept behave while watching videos, for example. The A8s is expected to be announced by years-end so not much to wait before it all becomes clearer.
