Samsung Galaxy A8s with display hole and triple-camera setup pictured
The Samsung Galaxy A8s has been leaking pretty consistently for the past month, but with three days to go until its official unveiling, live images of the smartphone have just been spotted on TENAA’s website over in China.

Up front, the smartphone depicted matches the design revealed by Samsung’s official teasers. This means that, although not clearly visible due to the display being turned off in the photo, a display hole is present in the top left corner of the panel that is home to the front-facing camera. Furthermore, slim top and side bezels are set to accompany a small chin.

Like many other Samsung smartphones, the Galaxy A8s will boast an aluminum frame that features a volume rocker and power key on the right side, and a dedicated Bixby button along the left side. Additionally, despite not being visible in the images, a bottom-firing speaker and USB Type-C port are to be expected. Unfortunately, no headphone jack will be present.

Taking a look at the rear, the South Korean giant appears to have curved the edges of the panel significantly in the hope of improving grip. Furthermore, an oval-shaped fingerprint scanner can be found in the center of the panel, while up in the corner sits a vertical camera setup. This is home to three rear sensors, one of which appears to have a ring LED light around it, and a single LED flash below the module.

The Galaxy A8s will go official in China next Monday and should be available in a number of gradient colors such as the silver one pictured. Initially, the smartphone will be exclusive to China but Samsung is eventually expected to bring it to international markets.

I would of preferred the lens to be centred like previous A models. Overall design looks good, loving the white to black Gradient.

This is uglier than any Samsung flagships. It will fail. But if they decided to price this for $200, hotcakes! That’s how cheap android fans can spend.

You just admitted the back of the iphone is ugly since this looks almost identical in the back.

And Apple didn't cut production output of the new models? Seems, the tipping point has been reached. Innovation seems to elude a certain company. Take a seat and be quiet "littleboy".

That is ugly as hell. Identical to an iPhone complete with a tumor like camera hump. This thing is DOA.
