Samsung To Trump Huawei And Launch First Handset With Display Camera Hole

The photos in the document are shown below which reveal how the slide out phone-cum-tablet would work.

In the previous generation Galaxy S, A and Note series, the Infinity Display cascaded to the left and right sides, up to the middle of the frame as well as on top and the base, with only tiny bezels making up the forehead and chin.

The next solution to the notch problem comes in the form of phones with selfie cameras fitted in a literal gap in the screen.

With the fresh appearance of the launch poster, Samsung today unveiled the launch date of its upcoming Samsung Galaxy A8s. Well, the Galaxy A8s will nearly certainly ship with a glass back, and if some concept imagery and rumors are to be believed, the Galaxy A8s will actually ship with three cameras on the back.

Samsung just recently announced the launch date of its first Infinity-O toting Galaxy A8s yesterday on Chinese social media.

US wireless carrier Sprint Corp is also working with LG Electronics USA to launch a 5G smartphone in the US in the first half of 2019.

While the December 10 Galaxy A8s and December 17 Huawei Nova 4 announcements are slated to take place in China, the two avant-garde devices are expected to go global shortly thereafter.

Moreover, Huawei's Nova 4 teaser picture showed the phone with a galaxy background.

Samsung is looking to get a first-mover advantage in 5G smartphones, with rival Apple reportedly planning to sit out of the game until 2020. We already have come across the reports of a different display hole which the Galaxy S10 lineup will feature in order to accommodate the dual front cameras. An in-display fingerprint sensor, and will run on Google's latest mobile OS; Android 9 Pie. It is expected to be powered by a 3,400mAh battery and sport a USB Type-C port. More insights to the smartphone in the coming days will make it clear how good the device will really be.

Instead of a triple-camera setup, the Galaxy S10+ apparently has a total of four cameras at the rear.

As for Huawei, the Chinese phone maker also published a promotional image for its upcoming smartphone and it looks almost identical to Samsung's.
