The backdrop of this launch, as it is rumoured, is based on Huawei's wish to compete with Samsung's Galaxy A8s launch.

As for the specifications, the Huawei Nova 4 would carry forward its budget flagship tag and be powered by the company's flagship 7nm Kirin 980 chipset - that also powers the Mate 20 Pro.

It is worth mentioning that this week, Samsung and Verizon will jointly attend the Qualcomm Snapdragon Technology Summit in Hawaii to showcase a proof-of-concept of 5G connectivity with the Snapdragon X50 modem.

Samsung and Huawei both teased the announcement of almost all-screen phones with a circular cutout for the front-facing camera before the end of the year. The screen on both Nova 4 and Galaxy A8s are LCDs.

Samsung has created a lot of hype with its new range of upcoming smartphones which includes the foldable Galaxy F, the flagship Galaxy S10, and the mid-tier Galaxy A8s. We were expecting an edge-to-edge design from Samsung with a hole in the screen for the front camera, but it looks like the bezels are still there. Hence, it is not clear how the brand would release the new OS update for the Galaxy A8s after the smartphone is launched. Therefore, the Infinity-O screen for the Galaxy S10+ will feature a larger, pill-shaped, hole, or two distinct holes in the display. It's expected to be coupled with up to 6GB of RAM and 128GB of onboard storage.

Samsung's technology is said to be arriving and featuring the new Infinity O display on Galaxy A8 and the O is said to be in there for the circular camera hole. The front-facing camera is also expected to be equipped with a 24-megapixel sensor. As for the Huawei Nova 4, there's no way of telling if it will ever reach the United States. The display hole is said to be of 6.7mm in size.

Above all, not much information has been revealed about the device. If you notice, the rear camera setup is placed horizontally compared to the vertical setup on the Galaxy S9 and S9+.
