The Nova 4 is teased as the Huawei’s first smartphone with a punch hole camera design. The device will be a worthy successor to the Nova 3 (review), and these official renders showing several color options reveal more about the handset. With the new year starting in less than three weeks, phone makers like Huawei are changing up the way their devices of the future look to stay relevant in the market.
To achieve that ‘all-screen’ design, companies initially used a notch at the top of the display, followed by a teardrop cutout that used up minimum display space. The next step is using a punch-hole-style camera, increasing the screen-to-body ratio even further. To see how this design fares on the upcoming Huawei Nova 4, let’s take a closer look at these renders.
Huawei Nova 4 Official Renders Reveal Three Gradient Color, Design Options
The color options of the Huawei Nova 4 include: Aurora Blue, Red, White and Black. With an in-display front camera on the left-top-corner of the display and a chin bezel at the bottom, the Nova 4 represents a step towards achieving a full-screen design on a mobile device. The rear end of all color variants show a glass back which looks nice but may not fare well in terms of durability. Huawei is unlikely to take advantage of the glass back by adding Qi wireless charging support. There’s also a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner, concluding the device will not ship with an in-screen biometric solution.
These official renders also show a triple-camera setup at the back. Previously covered leaks have also revealed this optics setup and its specifications on paper are very impressive. The camera at the back for the top-tier model will feature a 48MP super wide-angle lens paired by a 16MP shooter, which could be a monochrome lens. The last sensor will be a 2MP depth sensor. As for the more affordable models, those are expected to have a 20MP+16MP+2MP configuration.
The front side houses a 25MP AI selfie camera whose images will be significantly improved, thanks to the Kirin 970’s dedicated NPU found in the Nova 4. The display size of the smartphone reportedly measures at 6.4 inches diagonally, with a Full HD+ resolution and an aspect ratio of 19.25:9. In the memory department, the Huawei Nova 4 could feature 8GB RAM paired with 128GB of internal storage. So far, these renders don’t show a microSD card slot, nor is it confirmed if the handset will forego the 3.5mm audio jack.
The battery is expected to be 3750mAh cell, which is acceptable for a smartphone of this footprint. Luckily, the Nova 4 will have 18-watt fast-charging support, so you’ll be able to top up the battery quicker.
Huawei Nova 4 Official Launch Date
The Huawei Nova 4 will see a December 17 launch in China. The technology giant has not confirmed if the phone will launch in India so we’ll recommend you to keep a lookout on Huawei India’s Twitter account for more updates. Since the Nova 3 was introduced to the Indian market, we believe that the Nova 4 will reach our shores. No pricing details have come to light, unfortunately, but we expect it to be priced competitively. It could be slightly more expensive than the Nova 3 due to its new design and triple-camera. But, Huawei is unlikely to charge you premium for its little known Nova lineup.
