Huawei’s official Weibo account posted an image Monday of the upcoming Nova 4 smartphone captioned “12.17.”
Huawei Nova 4 With Circular Camera Cutout Set For December 17 Launch: Everything You Need to Know
On an image reminiscent of the one Huawei posted last week of the notchless Nova 4 smartphone, the company posted a second with a release date and a clearer image than ever of the camera cutout.
According to the teaser image, the device is scheduled to be released on December 17, and the display design looks strikingly similar to the recent leaks of the upcoming Galaxy S10 which features what the company calls an ‘Infinity O’ display. One difference is that Samsung’s front-facing camera is expected to be in the upper righthand corner whereas the Nova 4’s is on the top left.
As consumers become more and more opposed to a notch design — complaints about that of the Google Pixel 3 continue to pour out — this camera cutout alternative could render a notch completely unnecessary and allow the bezels to be virtually absent.
In any case, the Huawei Nova 4 and its nearly full-screen display will be unveiled in just two weeks, while Samsung’s Galaxy S10 is expected to arrive in February.
