Samsung made sure to beat Huawei in the race for the first phone with a punch hole display: While Huawei has teased their punch hole display offerings with the Nova 4 and Honor View 20, Samsung has made their own offering—the Galaxy A8s—official in China.

Powered by a Snapdragon 710 processor paired with 6GB/8GB RAM and 128GB internal storage, the Galaxy A8s’ key selling point is its Infinity-O display. The next evolution to notches, the Infinity-O panel uses a 6.7mm wide cutout for the 24-megapixel front camera and is placed at the top left corner of the display.

The Galaxy A8s’ other features do not disappoint either: you are getting a triple rear camera setup consisting of a 24-megapixel f/1.7 main camera, 5-megapixel f/2.2 depth camera, 10-megapixel f/2.4 telephoto camera. It also comes in gradient color options, and has a 3400mAh battery with support for fast charging via its USB-C port.
