Samsung Galaxy A8S smartphone gets WiFi certification

The Huawei Nova 4 is believed to be a direct successor to the Nova 3. The upcoming Samsung Galaxy A8s smartphone has a date is official unveiling in China. One can see the display cut-out for an In-display camera placed to the top-left corner. The front-facing camera is also expected to be equipped with a 24-megapixel sensor.

The Samsung Galaxy A8s and Huawei Nova 4 will both adopt (nearly) full-screen designs with no "conventional" notch, almost non-existent "foreheads", and relatively thin "chins". 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.

The images, which appear to be based on CAD drawings of the phone from multiple sources, show a Galaxy S10 that we can't quite make our minds up on.

Two phones competing with each other, having similar design leaves us in a lot of anticipation.

The phone has a glass and metal design that we have seen on all the Samsung flagships launched in the past couple of years.

Huawei and Samsung have announced launch dates for the Galaxy A8s and the Nova 4. The leaked images of the protective film of the upcoming Galaxy S10+ has been shared via Twitter along with a concept render of the smartphone. Previously, it was expected that the Galaxy A8s would launch in January, leaving Huawei in the clear to launch the Nova 4 in December. What's interesting about this launch is that the smartphone will bring a new solution to the notch. And it looks like some accessory makers would rather cut holes through their screen protectors instead of just covering the cameras with protective film or glass. At the moment with the teaser image it seems Huawei has taken the right step.

Although the details about the mobile phone are unknown, Bloomberg and Wall Street Journal previously reported that the 5G mobile phone we're talking about is the Galaxy S10 5G special edition.
