Samsung Galaxy A8s is expected to be the first phone by the Korean manufacturer with an Infinity-O display that has a cutout in the upper left corner for the selfie camera. After plenty of speculations, leaks and fan renders, the device was certified officially by the FCC under the name SM-G8870.
The listing included a screenshot that revealed the upper left corner is empty from notifications – they moved slightly to the centre.

The Samsung Galaxy A8s is also expected to have a taller screen than the Infinity Display, used in plenty of smartphones – from flagships as the Galaxy S9 to midrangers as the Galaxy A6. This time the ratio is 19.5:9, instead of 18.5:9, according to the screenshot resolution.
The Galaxy A8s is expected to arrive in China, but is seen as a device that is just testing the waters, before putting flagship hardware in the same body and launching the new phone as Galaxy S10 on the global scene.
