The notch is clearly one of the smartphone trends of 2018. Samsung is now taking a similar, but different, path with the Galaxy A8s - almost at the same time as Honor. All information.

So far there has not been a smartphone from Samsung that has a notch. That too Galaxy Note 9 has no such recess, although it is still fairly new. Here just enough space was left at the top so that all sensors without Profit problems. Now Samsung is taking a completely different approach with the Galaxy A8s. There is now a hole in the display of the new smartphone that offers space for a 24-megapixel front camera. Samsung calls this "Infinity-O Display". The earpiece was placed barely visible above the display.

Plays in the upper middle class

The display of the Galaxy A8s is 6,4 inches and has a FHD resolution. At the ProSamsung opted for Qualcomm's Snapdragon 710 processor. There is probably no Exynos version. The RAM is quite large for a mid-range smartphone. You get 6 gigabytes or 8 gigabytes here - depending on how you decide to buy it. The memory was also quite large at 128 gigabytes. It can be expanded up to 512 gigabytes with a microSD card.

Honor View 20 revealed almost at the same time

The Honor View 20, which was unveiled almost at the same time as the Galaxy A8s, is very similar to Samsung's smartphone. The front looks pretty much the same as that of the Samsung phone and the resolution of the display is the same as well. Only the front camera is a tiny fraction better with a resolution of 25 megapixels. Inside is the HiSilicon Kirin 980. The View 20 will not officially be presented until January 22nd. Prices for both smartphones are not yet known.
