Samsung Galaxy A8s concept render
Samsung’s efforts to revitalize its smartphone business are certainly capturing the attention of consumers but it looks as though its biggest launch will come January in the form of the Galaxy A8s.
Yesterday, while announcing the Galaxy A6s and Galaxy A9s for China, the company teased the upcoming smartphone’s bezel-less design which will reportedly make use of a display hole for the front-facing selfie camera. Aside from this, not too much is known about the smartphone. However, reliable tipster Stever Hemmerstoffer has confirmed that three color options are currently planned: Blue, Green, and Silver. Moreover, despite the recent trend towards in-display fingerprint scanners, it appears this feature has not made the cut.
According to recent information, the Galaxy A8s will be Samsung’s first smartphone to come equipped with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 710. Both RAM and storage counts remain unclear at the moment but, from the looks of things, a relatively small 3,000mAh battery will be included. Also likely is a triple-camera setup on the rear and Android 9 Pie straight out of the box.
As mentioned above, the smartphone will be released in January. This means that Samsung will likely announce it towards the very end of December. Alternatively, if this device is destined for international markets, an announcement at CES 2019 in early January could also be on the cards.

No matter how hard companies like Samsung tries, mofos will always find something to try degrade the effort. Great job Sammy and the other manufacturers who are pushing the innovation boundary. Funny how the ones who laughed at the Note actually have larger screens (just saying)

This is why I'm fine with having some top and bottom bezel. I'd don't want any cutout of any sort in my screen...I'm writing this from my S9+, if Apple did this, those in the comments praises this ugliness would be taking so much crap about them.
