Samsung’s smartphones with triple and quad cameras are not so old. But Samsung is now reportedly working to show its innovation on the screen side and bringing Galaxy A8s alongside a hole for a FaceTime sensor, instead of a wide or waterdrop notch.
At the launch of Samsung Galaxy A9s and Galaxy A6s on Wednesday in China, South Korean giant “Samsung” teased the arrival named “Galaxy A8s”. There is a hole in the screen which is likely to have a room for the FaceTime sensor as well as an ambient light and proximity sensors. Hence, it’s offering users amazingly bezel-less edge-to-edge screen experience.
Based on a teaser showcased at the launch event, Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy A8s will be the first in its kind device with an exceptionally thin bezel display. Well, Samsung didn’t reveal any information in terms of hardware but it mentioned that A8s will be backed by “first-time adoption” technology.
Moreover, if you go through some of the early renders, it will have a hole rather than of a notched screen for FaceTime camera and other sensors. That sounds something we’ve already seen on plentiful Android devices having a rectangular display notch.
In the recent past, Chinese smartphone makers Vivo and Oppo adopt waterdrop-like notch which occupies lesser space as compared to a wide and traditional notch.
Without a shadow of a doubt, Samsung’s A-Series have some competitive offerings. Back in the first quarter of this year, Samsung brought A7 2018 with tri-camera configuration to take on the tri-cameras featuring Huawei P20 Pro which set users back AU$1150. Later, Samsung revealed Galaxy A9 2018 with 4 rear cameras which were touted to be a “world’s first rear quad camera” smartphone.
The trend of 4 rear cameras have been continued with Galaxy A9s and houses a 6.3-inches Full HD+ Super AMOLED screen. In China, Samsung also revealed Galaxy A6s as company’s ODM smartphone which is manufactured by a 3rd party manufacturer.
