After Huawei confirmed the announcement of Nova 4 with in-display on December 17th, Samsung has confirmed that it will introduce its A8s smartphone with display hole for the camera on December 10th, a week before Huawei. FCC certification revealed a tall 19.5:9 aspect ratio display, and a space on the left corner of the phone for the display hole so that it doesn’t have any icons.
BOE is said to supply the LCD display for both Samsung and Huawei, but the Samsung Galaxy A8s display is said to be superior compared to Nova 4.
