Samsung's Galaxy S10 is nearly certain to be the next big smartphone to be revealed by the Korean technology firm and this device could be their most powerful and advanced to date.

With the fresh appearance of the launch poster, Samsung today unveiled the launch date of its upcoming Samsung Galaxy A8s.

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 announcement by the companies may point to a 5G-capable Galaxy S10 that would be exclusive to Verizon.

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 Nova 4, as you can see in the launch date teaser below, has an nearly negligible top bezel as compared to its predecessor and a smaller chin at the bottom.


Korean smartphone maker Samsung is scheduled to announce the Galaxy A8s, the world's first in-screen camera device on December 10, beating Huawei to the race.

The Samsung Galaxy A8s will likely be released in China first prior to making a worldwide debut. Instead of a notch, it has a tiny cut out hole at the top left which houses the front camera.

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.

Huawei has revealed a lot through its teaser image but the Chinese giant has remained quiet on the big features and specifications for the Nova 4.

Reports suggest at least one Galaxy S10 model will come equipped with five cameras (three in the rear, two in front) including a 16MP, 120-degree ultra wide-angle lens. The phone is said to ditch the 3.5mm headphone jack as well.

Users in select cities are already able to use 5G at home for super-fast connectivity inside, and we knew a 5G phone was coming.
