Huawei confirms launch date of its in-screen selfie camera smartphone

Verizon, Samsung promise 5G smartphone for next year

The backdrop of this launch, as it is rumoured, is based on Huawei's wish to compete with Samsung's Galaxy A8s launch. This basically suggests that the phone will first launch in China, though it is expected to make it to other markets soon after that, we'll probably get far more info during or after the launch event on December 10. The Samsung Galaxy A8s will reportedly feature a 6.39-inch TFT LCD display manufactured by BOE with a screen aspect ratio of 19.5:9. Huawei has announced that December 4th will be the launch date of Nova 4 on its Weibo account.

It seems like Samsung will become the very first company to launch a smartphone with a display camera hole. While Huawei Nova 4 is launching on 17th December, Samsung Galaxy A8s is launching on 10th December.

As usual, the Wi-Fi Alliance certificate for the Galaxy A8s doesn't reveal anything more apart from its Wi-Fi capabilities.

The Huawei Nova 4 has an edge to edge display but with a noticeable chin at the bottom.

The Huawei Nova 4 is believed to be a direct successor to the Nova 3.

Researchers reveal potentially huge cancer breakthrough: a 10-minute universal test
The position of these molecules forms part of the epigenome - a set of instructions that controls how genes are expressed. The technology has proven to be up to 90 per cent accurate in tests involving 200 human cancer samples and normal DNA.

The Galaxy A8s is tipped to be powered by a Snapdragon 710 processor which will be combined with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. The addition allows the companies to place front cameras and sensors at the top but some tech fans aren't happy with the look. However, it has been confirmed that the device will be running on Android 8.0 Oreo.

If 2018 was the year of the notch, then 2019 might be the year of the hole punch.

As you can see in the images and video above Samsung retain the 3.5mm headphone jack and a USB-C port along with what may be a Bixby button on the left (yes it will just not go away).

The Galaxy A8s is slated for an early January release in China. The smartphone will also be seen with a triple rear camera setup that might be of 25MP+5MP+10MP, and the battery is assumed to be of 3500mAh.
