After several weeks of teasing a new Huawei device, the company just announced the Huawei Nova 4 smartphone. Since the notch fever is dying out, its most stand feature is the circular “hole-punch” cut-out for the 25-megapixel selfie camera.
This is not our first look at the new “hole-punch” trend on smartphones thanks to the Galaxy A8s and View 20 from the Huawei sub-brand Honor. Just like the View 20, the Nova 4 has a 48-megapixel primary camera on the rear. The smartphone is powered by the Kirin 970 processor found on both the View 10 and Huawei P20 Pro.
Spec-wise, the Nova 4 is powered by a 3,750mAh battery, a 6.4-inch 2310 x 1080 display, 128GB of storage, 8GB of RAM, a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor, and 18W fast charging over USB-C. The Nova is priced at 3,399 yuan (about $490) for the higher spec model and a $3,099-yuan ($450) variant that comes with a 20-megapixel rear camera unit. Judging the company’s sour relationship with the USA, the phone will likely make its way to Indian and Europen market after its launch in China.
