Samsung was the first company to officially introduce a smartphone with a camera under the display. The device is called Galaxy A8s and has just appeared for pre-order at the Chinese online retailer JD.com. There is only one memory option and a single price of CNY2999, or less than $ 450.
The Samsung Galaxy A8 has been announced with 6 or 8 GB of RAM, but the initial pre-order is only for the lowest level. The storage is 128 GB anyway and you have a microSD slot for up to 512 GB more. This device is powered by Snapdragon 710 chipset and has Android Pie out of the box with custom user interface for the Chinese market.
While the back has three cameras, aligned similarly to what Apple does with its iPhone X devices, the front shooter is the big problem – it's 24 MP with f / 2.0 lens and is under an Infinity-O notch in the the LCD panel. The Galaxy A8s is clearly just a test of how the general public will react to the new solutions, with the design probably being transferred to the flagship Galaxy S10 birthday.

The off-line shipping and launch is scheduled for December 31, when, hopefully, we'll know more about the 8/128 GB variant. So far you can pre-order the Galaxy A8 in all three colors – Blue, Aurora Black and Alien Silver. There are also some gifts like energy banks, carriers and JD vouchers for the early risers.
