Huawei’s aggressive pursuit of becoming top vendor globally continues as the company aims to match each and every step by current leader Samsung. The company’s Mate 20 series are the most direct competitors to Samsung’s Galaxy Note9, we know Huawei is bending over backwards to beat Samsung to the first foldable smartphone and now the company has confirmed that it will launch a smartphone with an Infinity-O display in December.

The confirmation comes in the form of a teaser image, posted to one of Huawei’s Weibo accounts and shows the outline of a smartphone with a hole in the upper left corner of the screen. The image also shows the month – December.

Lenovo K5X is another Snapdragon 636-powered smartphone

It seems that Lenovo is looking to expand its K lineup even further after releasing the K5 Pro last month. This one is called K5X and the most recent report reveals a good portion of the specs along with a press render giving us a sneak peek of the front panel.

The handset is powered by a Snapdragon 636 paired with 6GB of RAM and either 32, 64 or 128GB of internal storage. The display is said to be 1080 x 2160 (FHD+) with 18:9 aspect ratio and 480 ppi with no word regarding screen size. However, simple math says that with FHD+ resolution and 480 ppi, the diagonal should be approximately 5″.

The rest remains pretty vague so for now, we can only play the waiting game.
