It has only been a few weeks since Samsung showcased a couple of displays it has been working on. Fast forward a few weeks, Huawei looks set to emulate one of those displays on a new smartphone. The smartphone, rumored to be named the Nova 3S will be among the first devices to feature this sort of display cut-out.

2018 has seen the trend of mobile phones featuring a high screen-to-body ratio with a number of devices going absolutely bezel-less. Complying with that trend, Samsung had only recently unveiled designs of display that have three types of notches.

Huawei has just released a teaser on one of its social media account citing a smartphone launch for December. What’s more interesting here is the sparkling light on the top right corner of the device. This design certainly reminds us of the Infinity-O display.

This design looks very similar to the renders of the Galaxy A8s which will have the same cut out to equip the selfie camera, according to various leaks. Up until now, Samsung has always stuck with no cutouts for its display, so it will be interesting to see how the company moves here onwards.

We have already seen OEMs implement various types of displays on their smartphones. The Oppo F9, Vivo V11, and OnePlus 6T have the waterdrop-like notch while there are also devices with the sliding mechanism like the Oppo Find X, Lenovo Z5 Pro, Huawei Magic 2 Slider and Xiaomi Mi Mix 3.

It will be interesting to see how the public reacts to this new smartphone from Huawei, as a lot of people have been waiting to see the end of notches on smartphones.
