The company's Galaxy A8s smartphone has been in the works for quite some time, and the company has just announced that the phone will arrive on December 10.

Verizon Communications Inc and Samsung Electronics Co Ltd on Monday confirmed long-held industry expectations they would seek to steal a march on Apple Inc by launching U.S. 5G smartphones in the first half of 2019.

The upcoming Samsung Galaxy A8s, which has been in the news for being the first smartphone to feature a hole-punch display and is scheduled to be announced next week, has been certified by the Wi-Fi Alliance.

Verizon, Samsung promise 5G smartphone for next year

Other than Huawei and Samsung, it seems that Lenovo may also introduce a smartphone with a similar design which features a front circular camera cutout.

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

A Samsung filing reveals (image above) how a smartwatch could feature an in-display camera, as well as an in-display biometric component for either the fingerprint or iris scanner. The device could be fueled by a 3,400mAh battery with support for fast charging and run Android 9 Pie operating system out of the box with Samsung's latest OneUI on top.

The Huawei Nova 4 has an edge to edge display but with a noticeable chin at the bottom. The company says that display panels, touch sensors and electronic pen sensors may all eventually end up using the technology described in the patent.
