Samsung unveils Galaxy A8s smartphone with 'punch hole' for front camera

Tuesday 11 December 2018 | 07:37 CET | News
The Galaxy A8s display fully covers the front of the device except for a small hole in the top left of the display for the camera, offering an alternative 'punch hole' to the increasingly popular 'top notch' on high-end smartphones. Accordingly, it delivers a wider viewing angle for users compared with currently available phones, Samsung said. The Galaxy A8s also features a 6.4-inch screen and 24-megapixel front camera, as well as three cameras on the back and a 3,400mAh battery.
