The screen, however, is what will make the Nova 4 noticeable, so let's start with that.
Huawei's "hole punch" display smartphone is here.
Huawei has officially lifted the veil off the Nova 4, its new mid-range smartphone with an all-screen display. Xiaomi has also confirmed to launch a 48MP camera phone in January next year. Huawei Nova 4 is available in Black, White, Red, and Blue colour variants.
On the top model, one of the three rear cameras uses Sony's new 48MP sensor, the IMX586 CMOS, while the other two consist of a 16MP wide-angle lens and a 2MP depth sensor.
"The Huawei Nova 4 comes with a 6.4" Full HD+ display (2310×1080 pixels) that comes with a slight chin at the bottom. With the tiny cut out the display to body ratio is an impressive 86.3%.
Huawei Nova 4 launch today: Triple-lens camera, 8GB RAM and Kirin 970
Other specs include 8GB of RAM, 128GB of onboard storage, and a 3,750 mAh lithium-polymer battery (non removable, of course). Out of the box, it runs on Android 9.0 Pie with EMUI 9.0.1 skin on top. Huawei's camera AI wizardry will accompany the Nova 4 as well. It now sets you back 3,399 yuan (about $490) in China, but there's also a cheaper version that goes for $3,099-yuan ($450), which replaces the 48MP shooter on the back with a 20MP sensor. There's also a model that comes with 20MP, 16MP, and 2MP sensors.
The Chinese firm announced the device in China today and its rear panel is extremely reminiscent of the P20 Pro thanks to its triple-camera array. Like the Honor View 20, it's also one of the first phones to sport a 48-megapixel camera. The rear camera of the Nova 4 comes equipped with a triple setup of 20-megapixel with f/1.8 aperture, 16-megapixel and 2-megapixel sensors.
It has the same gradient design on its glass back like the Nova 3 and Nova 3i.
A major highlight of the upcoming Nova 4 will be its display.
The Huawei Nova 4 will launch in China for 3,399 yuan which is equivalent to around £390.
