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.

Huawei Nova 4 vs. Huawei Nova 3: What’s Improved?

Huawei Nova 3

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).
