Samsung Galaxy A8s

Samsung Galaxy A8s official first photos have surfaced and it’s such a beauty. The upcoming A8s comes with a screen-hole that houses the selfie camera, leaving room for a totally bezel-less display. We all know Samsung doesn’t like the notch, however, a screen-hole might just do the trick. It sports triple rear camera just like the Samsung Galaxy A7 2018 and runs on the new Android 9 Pie as well.
