With the introduction of the Samsung Galaxy A8s we saw the first Android smartphone with a front hole in the screen to house the camera. However, soon we will also have a new Honor View 20 as well as new smartphones from Huawei.
Although these last two have not yet been officially presented, both already have official designation. In this sense, we will have the new Huawei Nova 4 in addition to the above-mentioned View 20 of its sub-brand, Honor.

First, although we have seen some rumors that suggest an early introduction of Huawei, Samsung would be ahead. Indeed, the new Samsung Galaxy A8s already gives us a good idea of what to expect from the next smartphones of its kind.
The Samsung Galaxy A8s was the first!
Therefore, by the end of this year we will have a new trio of Android smartphones with a hole in the screen. This triad of pioneers represents the advent of a new fashion, a new trend for the Android mobile (smartphone) market. That is, in 2019 this new pattern will reign that will almost completely suppress the notch or cutout at the top of the screen. Instead we will have just a single hole to house the front camera of our smartphones. Something that will make them extremely similar …
Indeed, by 2019 Android smartphones will be extremely identical to each other. All this thanks to the "new fashion" or future trend of using screens Infinity-oonly with the small hole and margins (bezels) very small.
Therefore, if the front will be extremely identical, the brands will focus on the back of your smartphones. Only then can they add a dash of creativity and differentiation to their Android devices.
Huawei, Honor and other manufacturers will bet on the rear design
Although we may have some doubts about the quality of the speaker, sensors and front camera, it is certain that the necessary adaptations will be made. However, I wouldn't be surprised if the first generation of Android smartphones with these features had some compromises or imperfections.
Looking at the back of this Samsung Galaxy A8s here we have a total of three cameras. Firstly we have a sensor of 24MP with a focal aperture of f / 1.7. Already without second place we have a camera 10MP with zoom optical and a f / 2.4 focal aperture. Thirdly we have a last chamber of 5MP with a focal aperture of f / 2.2. The latter is used for depth of field measurement purposes only.
On the back of this Android smartphone we also have its fingerprint reader or biometric sensor. However, at its front we have a camera 24MP with f / 2.0 focal aperture for selfies and video calling.
What to expect from Huawei and Honor's new Android smartphones?
For the reasons mentioned above, the big difference of the new Huawei and Honor smartphones will be the design / configuration of its back. Here we expect a strong bet from Huawei and Honor on the photographic issue, also with a total of 3 cameras.
Something that can apply to both the launching smartphone – Huawei Nova 4 – and its sub-brand. In this sense, we believe that the new Honor View also brings a triple camera configuration.
Moreover, both Android smartphones will be able to use the Kirin 980 processor. In short, the same SoC that powers the high end Huawei Mate 20 line. Something that still needs confirmation, and the Kirin 710 is also a good candidate.
On a final note, Huawei and Honor smartphones should be introduced in the coming weeks.
