Samsung has just announced the world’s first smartphone with camera hole in the display, the Galaxy A8s. Samsung calls Infinity-O design and it seems that the Korean company beat Huawei to the punch as the Honor View 20 will be second to the finish line.

Well, the Galaxy A8s’ in-display camera isn’t the only centerpiece feature of the device. The phone is actually a pretty capable device with a powerful Snapdragon 710 chipset paired with either 6 or 8GB of RAM while the storage is 128GB. It can be expanded with a microSD card of up to 512GB.

As for the screen, it incorporates a camera hole that’s 6.7mm wide for the selfie shooter in the upper left corner and it stretches to 6.4″ in diagonal. The resolution is 1080 x 2340 pixels with a tall 19.5:9 aspect ratio.

As far as camera is concerned, on the back there’s a triple-camera setup that consists of a 24MP main sensor with a large f/1.7 aperture and a secondary 10MP telephoto lens with f/2.4 opening. The third one is used only for depth sensing and it’s 5MP with f/2.2 aperture. As for the front-facing camera, it’s 24MP with f/2.0 aperture. The fingerprint reader is right there as well.

The phone carries a 3,400 mAh battery with adaptive fast charging support over USB-C and runs on Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box with Samsung’s UI on top.
