Samsung’s A8s is its first phone with an Infinity-O hole-punch display

From The Verge: Following hot on the heels of today’s Honor View 20 tease, Samsung has announced a phone of its own that’ll make use of its new Infinity-O display. The Samsung A8s features a distinctive “hole-punch” design for the phone’s selfie camera located at the top left of the display.

Samsung has said it intends to debut new features on mid-range phones first after ceding so much ground to its Chinese rivals. The A8s is a good example of this strategy.

Outside of that unique 6.4-inch (2340 x 1080 pixel) display, the phone — which doesn’t yet have an official price — is a fairly standard mid-range affair. The A8s is powered by a Snapdragon 710 with options for either 6GB or 8GB of RAM, and 128GB of onboard storage with up to 512GB of expansion via microSD. On the back it’s got the same triple-camera array as the Galaxy A7, while the front-side selfie camera contained within the cutout has a 24 megapixel sensor.
