According to previous reports, the company is expected to launch the device at a launch event in Dubai on December 5 along with two other devices. Taking a closer look at the teaser, the company posted a nine-second shot video clip with the caption “The picture’s about to get rosy with a epic viewing experience. Get ready to “#ExpectMore”. Along with the company, the video starts with the question “What do you expect from red?” with a background of roses.

The next caption that appears on the screen reads, “Get ready to #ExpectMore” with a shape of a notched display increasing the vibrancy and contrast of the roses below. This likely hints at an improved viewing experience for the display.
