Model number, camera position, and no 3.5mm jack

A couple of leaks spotted today, including FCC certification, have provided a bit more information regarding Samsung's upcoming A8s smartphone, which could mark the future path of the company, including the looks of the flagship Galaxy S10, coming later next year.

While the Galaxy A8s could be only coming to China, it is quite an interesting one from Samsung as it would give a general idea what to expect from Samsung's flagship Galaxy S10 smartphone that will launch globally.

As detailed earlier, the Samsung Galaxy A8s is expected to feature Samsung's new Infinity-O display, which will have a hole in the screen, rather than a notch. The screen is most likely made by BOE, a company that specializes in such screens. Another leak over at Twitter also suggested that it will lack a 3.5mm audio jack, focusing on USB-C port for audio.

A screenshot from the FCC certification pretty much confirmed earlier fan renders, which put the front camera hole at the far left part of the screen, as there is a blank part of the screen with notifications pushed slightly to the center.

The same certification also revealed that the screen is slightly taller, putting the aspect ratio at 19.5:9, while the model name should be the SM-G8870.

While there is no information regarding the Galaxy A8s launch date in China, we already wrote that the Galaxy S10 should ship in late March or early April.
