This is the Galaxy A8s, complete with display hole camera and triple camera setup

The Samsung Galaxy A8s.

  • Samsung Galaxy A8s renders have appeared on China’s TENAA website.
  • The renders show a phone with a rear-facing triple camera setup, as well as a display hole camera.
  • The Galaxy A8s is set to launch on December 10 in China.

Samsung announced plans last month to deliver an Infinity-O Display, which would see the camera sitting in an island on the screen. The firm’s first phone with the technology is the Galaxy A8s, and we’ve now received a good look at the device.

Galaxy A8s renders were uploaded to China’s TENAA regulatory website (h/t: Slashleaks), showing a phone with a trio of rear-facing cameras and a rear fingerprint scanner. We also get what appears to be a silver gradient colorway of sorts. Hopefully, the triple camera setup follows the more diverse normal/wide/telephoto formula rather than having one of the cameras acting as a dedicated depth sensor.

Check the front and you’ll indeed find an Infinity-O Display (or display hole camera, if you prefer). Samsung’s Chinese website shows us a better look at the display, along with a December 10 launch date. Check it out below.

We’re not quite sure what to expect in terms of specifications, but the TENAA filing lists a 3,300mAh battery and a 6.39-inch display. If it’s anything like the Galaxy A7 and A9 series, however, it will have a mid-range chipset, 4GB to 8GB of RAM, and 64GB to 128GB of storage.

Samsung isn’t the only company set to offer a display hole camera, as Huawei’s Nova 4 has also joined the party. Will this be the next major display trend after the notch? Well, only time will tell…

Would you buy a phone with a display hole camera over a device with a notch? Let us know in the comments!
