Samsung Galaxy A8S might say goodbye to the 3.5mm headphone jack
Back in the last month, Samsung fulfilled the first of part of its promise of revolutionizing its midrange smartphones – Through the Galaxy A7 and A9 2018, the company set a new standard for the A-series. However, the Galaxy A8s will be the company’s most important device for the future of Galaxy A devices. It will also be the first Galaxy smartphone to include a display hole for the camera and an in-display fingerprint scanner.
Samsung is preparing the Galaxy A8s to be its trailblazer device with an Infinity-O display. According to a prominent Twitter leakster @MMDDJ_, the new smartphone might also be the first Samsung smartphone without a 3.5 mm audio jack, paving the way for USB-C audio in the Galaxy S and Galaxy Note series.
The Korean company is apparently testing the waters with the Galaxy A8s and its all-in approach. Given the Galaxy A9s and Galaxy A6s monikers are China-exclusive, we might see the new device getting unveiled first in China, and if the reception is going on well, Samsung will likely copy the product design in its Galaxy S10 series, bound to arrive in Q1 2019.
