Presented today, the new Samsung Galaxy A8s is the first smartphone in the world to bring a hole in its screen to the front camera. However, it is also one of the first Android smartphones of this brand to relinquish the 3.5mm P2 – Jack audio port.
First, the rumors and information leaks are over. This is the first Android smartphone to use one of the new screens. Infinity-o. By the way, we could say that this is the first smartphone destined for the global market without the P2 audio port, commonly known as jack 3.5mm.

However, in a perfectly understandable way, attention was mostly on the screen of the Samsung Galaxy A8s. After all, this is the first device of its kind and a safe precursor to the upcoming releases of this South Korean manufacturer.
In this sense, it is only with a closer look that the publication Sammobile noticed the big change and great absence of the 3.5mm jack. Unfortunately this was the first Android smartphone of the brand to leave this door and certainly will not be the last.
Samsung Galaxy A8s does not have 3.5mm -P2 jack
In short, this is effectively the first Android smartphone of the brand that should reach our market without the P2 port. Even so far, we have contemplated this as a local decision for certain markets only. However, according to the international press this will not be the case. Therefore, the Samsung Galaxy A8s will eventually reach Europe and UK, placing itself in the mid-high end segment. You will surely be dazzled by its new and refreshing screen!
Above we can see the bottom edge of the new Android smartphone. Firstly, we have the Type C USB port in the center. On the left side we can find the hole for the main microphone as well as its only speaker on the right.
We could still look at its upper edge but then we would only find its secondary microphone. In short, it is time to say goodbye to this door, the jack 3.5mm on Samsung's Android smartphones.
This is Samsung's latest Android smartphone
In another tonic, Samsung was one of the last manufacturers to give up this port on their Android smartphones. However, from now on we believe the brand will apply the same strategy to its upcoming mobile devices.
In that sense, looking at the next line of tops, the Galaxy S10, it is perfectly plausible that the brand will give up this door. In short, the precedent is set, now it remains to be seen if the brand will follow it in all its new releases.
Still, at this moment the rumors and leaks of information around the possible S10 do not inspire us with much confidence. However, I believe the brand is effectively following the path it began today with this new Galaxy A8s.
