Huawei Nova 4 Has A Punch-Hole Selfie Camera
The Huawei Nova 4 has the same glass-and-metal sandwich design as that of the Huawei Nova 3 but there’s one major change. Instead of a 6.3-inch notched display that was used in the Nova 3, the Nova 4 has a 6.4-inch screen with a punch-hole selfie camera. This makes the screen much more usable while consuming content. There’s no bezel on the top and the sides, but there’s a small chin at the bottom. The screen features Full HD+ resolution with 20:9 aspect ratio. There’s a fingerprint reader at the rear, a 3.5mm headphone jack at the top and a USB Type-C port at the bottom.
Kirin 980 Powers The Huawei Nova 4
The smartphone is equipped with the Kirin 980 chipset, which made its debut in late 2018 with the Huawei Mate 20, Mate 20 Pro and the Mate 20 X. The chipset has two high-performance Cortex-A76 There’s 6GB of LPDDR4X RAM and at least 64GB of internal storage space. The phone could also be sold in a variant with 128GB internal storage. There’s an option to expand storage space using the microSD card slot (and it supports up to 256GB microSD card). The phone will run its EMUI 9 software that is based on Google’s Android 9 Pie operating system.
Huawei Nova 4 Has A Triple-Camera At The Rear
The Huawei Nova 4 has three camera sensors on its rear, similar to that of the Huawei P20 Pro and the Mate 20 Pro. The primary camera in the Nova 4’s triple-camera setup uses Sony’s IMX586 sensor with 48MP resolution and 0.8µm pixel size. The other two sensors are expected to be 16MP and 24MP resolution cameras. The phone’s camera will come featuring phase-detection autofocus, f/1.8 aperture, and 4K video recording. At the front, the Nova 4 is expected to feature a 24MP selfie camera which is located at the top left corner of the screen. The front-facing camera can record 1080p videos at 30fps.
Huawei Nova 4 vs. Huawei Nova 3: What’s Improved?
There are four main things that have been improved in the Huawei Nova 4 compared to the Huawei Nova 3: screen design, processor, camera setup, and battery capacity. The Nova 4’s screen, fortunately, is free from a notch. A punch-hole design is better than a notch design since it offers more screen real estate and lacks any bezel. While the Nova 3 came equipped with the Kirin 970 chipset, the Nova 4 uses a newer, Kirin 980 processing chipset. The new 7nm processor offers more power efficiency and faster processing speeds.
Compared to the dual-camera setup at the Nova 3’s rear, the Nova 4 uses a triple-camera setup. One of the cameras has a 48MP sensor for sharper images. It appears that the company has decided to drop the IR face recognition from the Nova 4, something that was used in the Nova 3. Also, the Nova 4 will come with a larger capacity battery that’s rated at 3900mAh (compared to Nova 3’s 3750mAh battery).
