Samsung found great interest in the Galaxy A8s and decided it was only released in the China market after its release in South Korea on January 28 to be released worldwide as Galaxy A9 Pro.
The Galaxy A8s is Samsung’s first smartphone with punch-hole, Infiniti-O Display, where there is notch but the camera is in the screen. The device was originally intended for the huge Chinese market, but it seems that the South Korean giant recognized the device as it would be scheduled to appear on the shelves of South Korea on January 28 at a price of $540. Eventually it will gradually reach other markets around the world in the coming weeks, but the price of the device for each market will certainly be different from that for South Korea.
The A9 Pro is identical to the Galaxy A8s, the only real difference being the name itself. This means that it will have the same 19.5:9 FHD + 6.4 inch screen and punch-hole Display, Snapdragon 710 processor, 6GB RAM, and 128 or 256GB storage.
On the back, there will be a triple camera system consisting of a main 24MP f / 2.8 lens, accompanied by a 10MP 2X, telephoto and a third 5MP that will be used to capture depth information and enhance quality of portraits. As mentioned, the screen at the front will be perforated to allow the 24 MP automatic camera to gather the necessary light.
The device will not have a fingerprint scanner but will be equipped with a conventional fingerprint sensor on the back. It also comes with Android Oreo installed, which is a bit disappointing knowing that the Pie version has been released for a long time, but companies are used to giving their flagship priority.
