Hot on the heels of its own sub-brand Honor and Samsung, Huawei has unveiled yet another hole-punch phone in China, the Nova 4. Like the Honor View 20, it’s also one of the first phones to sport a 48-megapixel camera.
From the back, the Nova 4 looks rather like a P20 Pro, with a gradient finish that has become so popular in recent years and a triple-camera setup. The front is most interesting, however, with its small camera hole-punch cutout. Read More
Samsung a few days ago launched the Galaxy A8s, its first phone to feature the Infinity-O screen design that’s coming to the Galaxy S10 next year. Infinity-O is a marketing term designed to explain the design of an all-screen smartphone that has no bezel or notch at the top. Instead, a camera hole punches through the display, with the screen extending from corner to corner, around the camera, and almost entirely down to the bottom corners. And Huawei’s new Nova 4, which was featured in rumors and teasers in the past weeks, happens to have a hole that’s even smaller than Samsung’s.
When the Galaxy S10 launches in February, it will be available in four versions, reports say, complete with four distinct camera setups. We’re looking at combinations of single and dual-lens selfie cams, as well as multi-lens rear cameras — that’s anywhere from two to four cameras on the back.
But a new leak tells us smartphone camera design is about to get even crazier in 2019, with one of Samsung’s most significant competitors working on a different multi-lens camera module for next year.
Inexpensive but fully loaded.
The Honor 7X unlocked smartphone is down to $169 via Amazon. This device has been around for more than six months selling for $200. Today’s drop is a match for the lowest we’ve ever seen, a price it has only hit twice before. You can also find a similar deal at B&H where you’ll be able to snag it tax-free if you live outside of NY or NJ.
