When companies make a new phone they want accessory manufacturers to provide accessories for their devices and as such often give CAD measurements to them to allow for flawless fitting accessories. Aside from the images, we also get a 360 degree video (seen above) to give us a better idea of the 2019 superphone. The promo image confirms that the device will be officially announced in China on December 17, one week after Samsung launches the Galaxy A8s. The promo image also states that the device will launch on December 10 at an event in China.

Samsung has just confirmed the launch of their first "Infinity-O display" smartphone, the Galaxy A8, for December 10th in China. Hence, it is not clear how the brand would release the new OS update for the Galaxy A8s after the smartphone is launched.

Like the Samsung Galaxy A8s, many were expecting the Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus to sport the Infinity-O display. 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.

Samsung First To Announce Smartphone With Hole In Display

A new teaser image posted on Weibo has revealed that Huawei's Nova 4 smartphone will be coming later this month.

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

In the picture you can see the three-module camera. This phone has a larger gap to make room for two front-facing cameras, but it's also possible that's a single camera and some other sensor like a 3D face scanner or iris reader. Galaxy A8s is expected to have a 6.39-inch TFT LCD display, with a screen aspect ratio of 19.5:9. There's also a headphone jack on the bottom edge of the rendered phone. On the rear, there are triple cameras arranged in the same way as on the Huawei P20 Pro. It will have a brand new look, different from all the other bezel-less smartphones on the market.

At this point, it is not clear if Microsoft will be using the Edge branding or user interface with the Chrome-based browser. Also, the fact that Microsoft is looking into using an open source engine like Chromium sounds pretty promising.
