Huawei wants to release the first phone with a screen hole, beating Samsung to the finish line. That phone may be the Huawei nova 4, renders of which just hit the net.

The design of the back is pretty much a P20 Pro. The front features screen with a hole for the selfie camera in the top left corner. This matches the official teaser and the disguised device that was spotted in the wild.
Huawei even live streamed a demo of a prototype device with such a screen hole, which served as the basis of this render. Admittedly, the presenters were very careful not to show the back during the stream.

Chances are that the Huawei nova 4 (as well as the Samsung phone) will used BOE-made LCDs, which explains the similarities in the display design and camera hole positioning.
