Now, just ahead of its official launch the Samsung Galaxy A8s has been certified by Wi-Fi Alliance.

Verizon will start offering its first 5G smartphones in the first half of next year after announcing a new partnership with Samsung.

On the specification front, the new Samsung Galaxy A8s is expected to carry a 6.39-inch display FHD+ resolution as well as aspect ratio of 19.5:9. Of course, the announcement can not be coincidental as both the companies were in the race to launch the first smartphone hole in display since November and it appears that Samsung was just waiting for Huawei to announce the launch date.

Samsung has announced that it will announce the upcoming A8s smartphone with an in-display camera and Infinity-O display on 10 December.

The Huawei Nova 4 is believed to be a direct successor to the Nova 3.

In the previous generation Galaxy S, A and Note series, the Infinity Display cascaded to the left and right sides, up to the middle of the frame as well as on top and the base, with only tiny bezels making up the forehead and chin. Well, the Galaxy A8s will nearly certainly ship with a glass back, and if some concept imagery and rumors are to be believed, the Galaxy A8s will actually ship with three cameras on the back. This would appear to be an expansion of in-display fingerprint technology that's expected to show up in next year's Galaxy S10 models, which would be its first phone with such a sensor. The company says that display panels, touch sensors and electronic pen sensors may all eventually end up using the technology described in the patent. The phone will have a USB Type-C port and a 3.5mm headphone jack. Inside the chassis, the Galaxy A8s could boast either a Snapdragon 710 SoC or a Snapdragon 660 AIE processor.

Speculation is rife that the rear of the Galaxy A8s will be home to a triple camera setup very similar to the Galaxy A7 (2018).
