The Infinity O display looked to be the first of its kind to be featured on the Galaxy A8s, which we thought would be the world's first. The backdrop of this launch, as it is rumoured, is based on Huawei's wish to compete with Samsung's Galaxy A8s launch. The top right placement is interesting since the Galaxy A8s and the upcoming Huawei Nova 4 will get a single cut-out-hole that's positioned on the top left corner instead.

The race between Samsung and Huawei to become the first company to release a smartphone with a hole-punch camera display is at full throttle. The companies said they will unveil a proof-of-concept Samsung 5G phone this week at Qualcomm's Snapdragon Technology Summit in Maui.

This will make Samsung to bring out the first phone with a screen hole. It will coupled by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 SoC, paired with 6GB RAM and 128GB ROM expandable via microSD card of up to 512GB.

The Samsung Galaxy X foldable phone screen has already been officially teased by Samsung as the Infinity Flex display, but it appears there may also be a roll-out phone too. There's no information on the pricing and availability details for the Huawei Nova 4 just yet, so stay tuned for more updates. On the back, the device appears to have a vertically staged ripple rear camera setup with LED flashlight and fingerprint sensor.

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. It will also come with a USB Type-C port and might be Samsung's first device to ditch the headphone jack. The device is expected to sport a rather large display, as the Huawei Nova 3 arrived with a 6.3-inch panel, so the Huawei Nova 4 will probably sport a display that is similar in size to its predecessor's.
