At its developer conference in San Francisco earlier this month, Samsung showcased three different notch designs that it plans to use in its future smartphones. Of these, the Infinity-O style is definitely the most interesting, since it s a hole punched into the display itself, under which the front-facing camera lens can be placed.

While there s no word as to when the Galaxy A8s Samsung’s first smartphone with an Infinity-O display will launch, it seems Huawei is already hard at work to one up on Samsung by launching its first smartphone with a in-screen selfie camera.

Recently, an alleged photo of the Huawei Nova 4 appeared in the wild. It showcased what appeared to be a hole at the top-left corner of the smartphone s display. Now, just days after that, the Nova 4 has made an appearance again, this time on stage.
In a set of photos shared on Weibo, a person is shown holding a smartphone in his hand, and talking to another person on stage. The display, which is facing the audience, is clearly shown with a hole at the top left corner in the high-quality pictures. Obviously, there s no notch either, and the font of the lock screen clock confirms that the device is running EMUI, the Android overlay that s used in all Huawei (and Honor) smartphones.

Add all that up, and we may just be looking at the world s first smartphone to have a punch hole in-screen camera. What s even more interesting is that smartphone could arrive as early as next month.
