Samsung will release the Galaxy A8s in South Korea in January. Samsung Electronics Co. Plans to launch its first smartphone with a hole for the camera in the display itself in South Korea later this month, reported Wednesday's sources in the industry. According to Samsung spokesman, the world's largest handset maker plans to release the Galaxy A8 in the domestic market in the coming weeks after its presentation in China last month. The Galaxy A8s comes with a 6.4-inch screen with a 24-megapixel selfie camera. It also has three cameras on the back panel. The battery capacity is 3400 mah. The new smartphone is notable for the fact that the display completely closes the front of the device, except for a small hole for the camera. Accordingly, it provides a wider viewing angle for users compared to competitors, including Apple Inc. IPhone, which use the so-called notch design. According to the official, the phone will be launched under the new name of Galaxy A9 Pro in the domestic market, and the price is expected to be about 500 000 won ($442) to 600 000 won. The smartphone is also the first Samsung phone to exclude the headphone jack. Sources in the industry reported that the company is expected to also abandon this connector for the upcoming Galaxy S10, which will also be introduced in February.
