There's no information on the pricing and availability details for the Huawei Nova 4 just yet, so stay tuned for more updates.

Nova 4, from the stable of Huawei, will come with a display that has tiny round cutout to accommodate for selfie camera.

The Huawei Nova 4 has an edge to edge display but with a noticeable chin at the bottom. Huawei has announced that December 4th will be the launch date of Nova 4 on its Weibo account.

Of course, USA commercial rollouts are by no means guaranteed (quite on the contrary if we're talking about Huawei's phone), but these are also momentous products for what they might anticipate.

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. The companies said they will unveil a proof-of-concept Samsung 5G phone this week at Qualcomm's Snapdragon Technology Summit in Maui.

The announcement by the companies may point to a 5G-capable Galaxy S10 that would be exclusive to Verizon. After this, Samsung unveiled its Foldable phone, along with the Infinity-U, Infinity-V and Infinity-O designs. It's about to be the biggest trend in smartphones, and the Galaxy S10 will be one of the phones that starts it all.

According to some previous leaks, the Samsung Galaxy A8s is expected to sport a 6.39-inch FHD+ display with a 19.5:9 aspect ratio.

Coming to the camera department, the Samsung Galaxy A8s is expected to feature a triple camera setup at the back consisting a 24-megapixel primary camera, a 10-megapixel camera and a 5-megapixel camera. A recent report also stated that the mid-range smartphone would do away with the beloved 3.5mm headphone jack.

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