Samsung Kills Headphone Jack For First Time with Galaxy A8s

This morning a case for the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S10 was leaked with a very short video. The front camera hole in the screen could be a lone 24-MP selfie camera.

As for the pricing of the Galaxy A8s, Samsung did not announce its price, neither mentioned its availability except that it will be available for pre-ordering in China soon.

"As for the screen, it incorporates a camera hole that's 6.7mm wide for the selfie shooter in the upper left corner and it stretches to 6.4" in diagonal.

It seems that Samsung will be the first manufacturer to market with a phone sporting an in-display camera. On the software side, it runs on the Android 8.1 Oreo out-of-the-box with Samsung's homebred UI skin loaded on top. Samsung Galaxy A8s is powered by a 3,300mAh battery.

While the cutout for the selfie camera is a notable aspect, the other highlight of the Galaxy A8s is the triple camera module at its rear. The phone includes a primary sensor of 24MP paired with f/1.7 aperture, secondary sensor of 10MP, and third sensor of 5MP for depth shots. There's also no place for a fingerprint scanner.

The rear camera array will boast three snappers with a combination of normal, wide-angle and zoom that should deliver brilliant pics in most conditions. The base model comes with 6GB RAM + 128GB, while the high-end version of the phone packs 8GB RAM + 128GB storage.

Samsung originally launched the Galaxy A series back in 2015, which includes the A3, A5, A7, and A8. The smartphone does not come with 3.5mm headphone jack, one of the first Samsung mid-range devices to skip the feature.

The Samsung Galaxy S10 lineup is said to consist of the 5.8-inch S10 Lite (Beyond 0), the 6.1-inch S10 (Beyond 1), and the 6.4-inch S10 Plus (Beyond 2).
