Samsung has released A8s with Front Camera inside the screen

Furiku
 Share

Samsung has released their new Galaxy A8s which has the camera embedded inside a hole on its screen on front side :)

Initially they're only releasing it in China.

It's curious to see what kind of applications we're going to see from other manufactorers in regards of the Front facing camera and getting rid of the notch. Punching hole in the screen seems quite radical, but definitely less noticeable in use than "The Notch" did.

Quote

As for the screen, it incorporates a camera hole that's 6.7mm wide for the selfie shooter in the upper left corner and it stretches to 6.4" in diagonal. The resolution is 1080 x 2340 pixels with a tall 19.5:9 aspect ratio.

I'm guessing the bottom bezel is still a bit larger than the top?  can't see it in any of the pics.

waiting for the Camera to be a "wheel" for the battery percentile or used as some type of clock.

 

its better than the notch, but i still dont like it. i would preffer top an bottom bezels to this any day.

Using it as a battery indicator would be neat, this is much better than the notch but no headphone jack kind of ruins it for me as well.

This is stupid. Nobody minds 3mm bezels, stop deforming the screen.

 

Also, no jack, no buy.

Don't ask to ask, just ask... please 🤨

Sauron'stm Product Scores:

Spoiler

Just a list of my personal scores for some products, in no particular order, with brief comments. I just got the idea to do them so they aren't many for now :)

Don't take these as complete reviews or final truths - they are just my personal impressions on products I may or may not have used, summed up in a couple of sentences and a rough score. All scores take into account the unit's price and time of release, heavily so, therefore don't expect absolute performance to be reflected here.

 

-Lenovo Thinkpad X220 - [8/10]

Spoiler

A durable and reliable machine that is relatively lightweight, has all the hardware it needs to never feel sluggish and has a great IPS matte screen. Downsides are mostly due to its age, most notably the screen resolution of 1366x768 and usb 2.0 ports.

 

-Apple Macbook (2015) - [Garbage -/10]

Spoiler

From my perspective, this product has no redeeming factors given its price and the competition. It is underpowered, overpriced, impractical due to its single port and is made redundant even by Apple's own iPad pro line.

 

-OnePlus X - [7/10]

Spoiler

A good phone for the price. It does everything I (and most people) need without being sluggish and has no particularly bad flaws. The lack of recent software updates and relatively barebones feature kit (most notably the lack of 5GHz wifi, biometric sensors and backlight for the capacitive buttons) prevent it from being exceptional.

 

-Microsoft Surface Book 2 - [Garbage - -/10]

Spoiler

Overpriced and rushed, offers nothing notable compared to the competition, doesn't come with an adequate charger despite the premium price. Worse than the Macbook for not even offering the small plus sides of having macOS. Buy a Razer Blade if you want high performance in a (relatively) light package.

 

-Intel Core i7 2600/k - [9/10]

Spoiler

Quite possibly Intel's best product launch ever. It had all the bleeding edge features of the time, it came with a very significant performance improvement over its predecessor and it had a soldered heatspreader, allowing for efficient cooling and great overclocking. Even the "locked" version could be overclocked through the multiplier within (quite reasonable) limits.

 

-Apple iPad Pro - [5/10]

Spoiler

A pretty good product, sunk by its price (plus the extra cost of the physical keyboard and the pencil). Buy it if you don't mind the Apple tax and are looking for a very light office machine with an excellent digitizer. Particularly good for rich students. Bad for cheap tinkerers like myself.

I want to see what the companies are seeing to compel them to disregard the headphone jack o_o like is it the waterproofing, or is it not many people listen to music on their devices, or WHAT IS IT MAN

there's the argument of the contact points on in the TRRS barrel shorting with any conductive liquids, or corroding over time and getting hard to clean, but yeah is not a compelling enough reason for me too o_o

agree. you could just do what they did on the older sony's (I thougt). they had some kind of a cover for the headphone jack

They're trying to be Apple without understanding why people buy Apple in the first place, so they copy every idiotic design decision Apple makes.

Don't ask to ask, just ask... please 🤨

They should remove the USB connector as well. It will make the phone more waterproof.

Use wireless charging and call it a day. Everyone has a wireless charger now.

They need some iCourage

Its not just about headphones, I still need a jack for my Jeep, receiver, camp radio and buggy. Then I could add on my studio headphones which I am not replacing for BT. 

 

Its a big deal for some people

It is a big deal especially to me I own hundreds of dollars worth of audiophile gear that I'm not replacing with Bluetooth stuff. They don't make high end audio with Bluetooth why because Bluetooth ruins audio quality. Even the best Bluetooth quality isn't close there is an audible difference.
