Samsung Galaxy A8s gets Wi-Fi Alliance certification ahead of launch


Lenovo will unveil the Z5s tomorrow, Samsung has scheduled an event for December 10 to unveil the Galaxy A8s.

Samsung, which is set to launch world's first foldable smartphone early 2019, has partnered with Verizon on its 5G Home offering since the beginning of 2018.

A teaser poster for the Huawei Nova 4 has now surfaced online, confirming that the front side of the device will feature a "punch hole" front-facing in-screen camera. Huawei has announced that December 4th will be the launch date of Nova 4 on its Weibo account.

Samsung just recently announced the launch date of its first Infinity-O toting Galaxy A8s yesterday on Chinese social media.

As usual, the Wi-Fi Alliance certificate for the Galaxy A8s doesn't reveal anything more apart from its Wi-Fi capabilities.

Along with the oval cutout housing the dual selfie cameras (there is nothing being hidden here in these renders unlike some companies who forbid showing the notch in advertising material) there is also a triple camera on the rear. It features a hole on the top left of the screen, which houses the selfie camera. This device will be in competition with Huawei Nova 4, that has been confirmed to launch in China on December 17. The front camera within the display hole at the top left corner is expected to be a 24-megapixel sensor.

The device will run on Android 8.1 Oreo operating system and be backed by a 3400mAh battery. A recent report also stated that the mid-range smartphone would do away with the beloved 3.5mm headphone jack. With a small hole at the corner, this approach offers a less obstructive full-screen experience compared to a notched display, especially while playing videos. So, even if it comes second, it will still have an advantage over the Galaxy A8s (expected to have a Snapdragon 710). Huawei put 3 lenses on the back of the P20 Pro and Mate 20 series while Samsung has 4 on the Galaxy A9.
