Samsung is already working to bring Galaxy A8s ASAP in the markets. Our reports say that this not is the first handset in the market that will arrive with the Infinity-O display. In fact, we may see the Nova 4 and Lenovo 5Zs with similar display technology in a prior launch in comparison to the Galaxy A8s. According to a prominent Twitter leakster @MMDDJ_, the new smartphone might also be the first Samsung smartphone without a 3.5 mm audio jack.
We believe that it will be the beginning for USB-C audio in the Galaxy S and Galaxy Note series. Also, the handset will be China exclusive, and it will, later on, get available to the other parts of the world. Also, Samsung will likely copy the product design in its Galaxy S10 series, bound to arrive in Q1 2019.
Note that the display on the Galaxy A8s will not come from Samsung. Moreover, these displays are more likely to come from BOE, and this is the same company that is currently outsourcing displays to the Huawei Nova 4.
