The hole punch display is doubly interesting as Samsung's upcoming Galaxy S10 is rumored to have a similar display.

Huawei's "Nova" series has seen some of the best selling devices courtesy of their decent specifications and good design at a mid-range price.

Verizon will start offering its first 5G smartphones in the first half of next year after announcing a new partnership with Samsung.

The company has posted a poster revealing the launch date on the official Weibo account of Samsung mobile.

The handset could also feature a triple camera like the Galaxy A7 (2018) comprising of a 24-megapixel primary sensor working in tandem with 10-megapixel and 5-megapixel sensors.

So, the Huawei Nova 4 has an nearly bezel-less display with a small chin on the bottom and a hole on the top left corner for the front camera. The Nova 4 is launching on December 17.

And in 2015, Samberg hosted the Emmy awards to generally positive reviews. The Golden Globe awards ceremony will be held on January 6 at 8 p.m.

Samsung has just confirmed the launch of their first "Infinity-O display" smartphone, the Galaxy A8, for December 10th in China. The Galaxy A8s will support dual-band Wi-Fi, reveals the document which was even suggested by the FCC listing, so there's nothing much new to state here. A Type-C USB port will be placed on the bottom of the phone, along with the phone's loudspeaker, while we still do not know whether Samsung plans to include da 3.5mm headphone jack on the bottom or not.

What To Expect In The Spec Department?

While it is not confirmed, rumour has it that the A8s will come with 6.3-inch LCD display, and the hole on the display will house a 24MP front camera.

This will make Samsung to bring out the first phone with a screen hole. Inside the chassis, the Galaxy A8s could boast either a Snapdragon 710 SoC or a Snapdragon 660 AIE processor.

The Samsung Galaxy A8s will ship with Android 8.0 Oreo out-of-the-box which is a bit let down considering that Google had already released the stable Android 9 Pie back in August this year.
