A few weeks ago we learned that the Samsung Galaxy S10 will be one of the first devices to market featuring the company’s new Infinity-O display which features a “punch-hole” cutout for the front-facing camera. Since then, Samsung Galaxy A8s leaks have surfaced which suggest that it would introduce the new Infinity-O display to the world before the end of the year. The new display technology would allow the despised display notch’s real estate to be reduced significantly and allow it to get lost in the notification bar more easily.
Unfortunately for Samsung, it looks like Huawei is planning to beat them to the punch. According to an image shared by @UniverseIcem Huawei is planning to unveil a device in December which will also feature a punch-hole cutout in the display for the front-facing camera. As shown in the image below, the front-facing camera hole would be located in the top left corner of the display. While Samsung’s Infinity-O display technology has gotten a lot of attention these past few weeks, we were first introduced to the technology concept this past summer when a Huawei patent surfaced which showed a punch-out hole for the front-facing camera in phone’s display.
We do not know the name of the Huawei device which will feature the punch-hole camera cutout, but with its launch scheduled for December, we should know more soon. Based on what we know so far, do you think a punch-hole display is a better option than the notched displays we’ve seen this year?
Huawei will release the world’s first hole-screen mobile phone before the Samsung Galaxy A8s, which will be released in December, but the A8s may also be released in December, so who will start, it will wait and see.
