A recent report indicates that Samsung’s Galaxy A8s might be the first phone from the company to be released in Canada that doesn’t feature a headphone jack.
Samsung previously omitted the jack from its two high-end flip phones, the W2018 and the W2019, which launched in China and South Korea, according to SamMobile.
The report is from The Indian Express and it’s based off a tweet from a Chinese Samsung leaker.

The report also backs up the rumours that suggest theA8s will be Samsung’s first phone with an all-screen ‘Infinity-O’ display with an aspect ratio of 19.5:9. The phone is also likely to avoid adding a notch all together and will instead have a small hole in the top left-hand corner of the screen for the front-facing camera.
The leaker also mentions the phone will have an LCD display and will likely be revealed in December.
Confirm: Galaxy A8s is LCD Display.

While the loss of the 3.5mm jack on the A8s might mean that the South Korean electronics giant is moving away from the port, it could still be featured in other upcoming Samsung flagship smartphones.
