A day after Huawei announced that it was launching it Nova 4 flagship on Dec. 17, Samsung has today confirmed Dec. 10 the date of the Samsung Galaxy A8s smartphone launch. All this—is that both smartphones are alike, the reasons the two smartphone giants are in battle of who unveils their flagship first. It was a clever move for Samsung to wait till Huawei announced its launch date, for theirs.

Samsung has published a poster on Weibo announcing that the Galaxy A8s smartphone will launch on Dec. 10. The poster is uncannily similar to what we saw of Huawei, with the outline of the phone visible, and the camera hole on the top left.
