Samsung introduces the new Galaxy A8s

Samsung has introduced a new smartphone – the Galaxy A8s, and it is set for a December release. Its development follows the previously released three-eyed Samsung Galaxy A7.

Samsung teased the new smartphone on Weibo, giving us a look at the display hole in the top left corner in its full glory. The Infinity-O concept was officially announced at Samsung’s developer conference in San Francisco—the same event also gave us a sneak-peek into Samsung’s foldable smartphone.
