Apart from being innovative and different, the technology is important because Samsung is expected to launch its upcoming flagship smartphones the Galaxy S10 and Galaxy Note 10 with the Infinity-O display.

The TENAA images confirmed the three rear-camera sensors but it wasn't until we tweaked the image of the front that we were actually able to see the Infinity-O camera hole in the top left corner.

Samsung Galaxy A8s was launched in China on Monday, sporting the anticipated Infinity-O Display. It's a doughnut phone, meaning it avoids the standard notched display in favour of a single hole cut into the screen.

The Galaxy A8s uses an expansive 6.4-inch Full HD+ display. However, the renders indicate Samsung will opt for a side-mounted fingerprint sensor in place of the in-display sensor.

Software: The phone runs on Android 8.1 Oreo out-of-the-box with Samsung Experience UI 9.5 on top.

While smartphone displays getting larger in nearly every iteration, Samsung seems to understand there are those who prefer a smaller smartphone that's easier to manage in one hand.

While the cutout for the selfie camera is a notable aspect, the other highlight of the Galaxy A8s is the triple camera module at its rear. The rear camera configuration of the Galaxy A8s is nearly similar to that of the Galaxy A9.

The camera at the back has a 24MP+10MP+5MP combination. The base model comes with 6GB RAM + 128GB, while the high-end version of the phone packs 8GB RAM + 128GB storage. It comes with a premium-looking glossy finish body with Aluminum frame.
