Huawei to Substitute Notch With Side Aligned Front Facing Camera in Upcoming Phone
As teased on the official Huawei Weibo page, the company is planning on launching another smartphone in December of this year, possibly the first one to hit the market without bezels or a notch.
Huawei Nova 4 With Circular Camera Cutout Set For December 17 Launch: Everything You Need to Know
Believe it or not, another smartphone launch is still on the 2018 docket for Huawei, and the unnamed device is scheduled to be announced in December as revealed by an official Weibo post Monday.
The image features an outline of the device -- bezel-less and notchless -- with a thin light beam shining from a pinhole opening in the top left corner of the phone, suggesting that the front camera will be contained in this tiny cutout.
In most modern-day smartphones, selfie cameras are nearly centered at the top of a screen, but this one resembles that of the anticipated Samsung Infinity-O display -- to be possibly implemented in one of the upcoming Galaxy S10 derivatives but yet not confirmed -- teased at the Developer Conference earlier this month.
Without any mention of the device on any other social media channel, we can assume that the phone will be released only in China, at least for now. Previous image leaks of the device, like that from ITHome, reveal that the device will be called "Nova 4," joining the Nova lineup which is only available to the Chinese market.
Though we know the phone is coming in December, the exact date has not yet been revealed. Keep your eyes peeled on the Huawei Weibo page for an official date.
