After trolling Apple over notch screens, Samsung has finally embraced the cut-out display with its latest Galaxy A8s. Samsung’s latest smartphone is a mid-range smartphone with Infinity-O display.

First unveiled at the company’s annual developers summit, Infinity-O is essentially a circular cut-out. Unlike the traditional notches, it does not sit on top-centre of the screen. Instead, it is located on the top-left corner. According to reports, Asus is planning to launch Zenfone 6 with similar notch display.

Apart from an ‘Infinity-O’ display, Samsung Galaxy A8s comes with a triple-rear camera setup, second phone to have the setup after Galaxy A8 2018. The back panel also houses a fingerprint sensor.

Samsung Galaxy A8s will go on sale in China on December 20.
