Move over Huawei, the Samsung Galaxy A8s is coming on December 10

Mere hours after Huawei announced that it will unveil the nova 4 with a selfie camera inside the display on December 17, Samsung announced it will show off the Galaxy A8s a full week earlier – on December 10.

The move is by no means coincidental – a fight to bring out the first phone with a screen hole has been on since late November. At this point it looks like Samsung will indeed beat Huawei to the punch, but things could change.

The screens on both the nova 4 and the Galaxy A8s are LCDs made by BOE, but it’s said that Samsung’s phone is the the more premium of the two.

Specs-wise the Samsung Galaxy A8s is expected to have a 6.3-inch 2340×1080 19.5:9 LCD, a Snapdragon 710 chipset with up to 6GB of RAM, a 24MP selfie camera embedded into the display and a triple camera on the back – likely a regular and an ultra-wide accompanied by a depth sensing third snapper.

The post says to prepare for an AI flagship with big screen that will arrive in just 10 days. Size-wise the display is rumored to be AMOLED panel by Samsung with a 6.9” diagonal. According to a leaked photo from earlier this week, the Honor Note 10 is expected to have tiny bezels on top and bottom and even tinier on the sides.

The phone also popped up on Geekbench with Kirin 970 chipset by HiSilicon, coupled with 6 GB RAM. The OS is Android 8.1, likely with the latest EMUI version on board. Since the phone is going to be a massive slate, we expect it to have a huge battery supporting Super Charge.
