After offering a solid variety of phones this year under the Honor brand and bringing the first triple-camera equipped P20 Pro to India, Huawei is all set to launch a new phone. According to the company, the release date has been set for 26 July.
The company has sent out a teaser for the upcoming handset saying, “A phone that can make you do more. Cameras that can fourfold your view. Four-in-one is #Coming4You!” The company clearly mentions that this phone will feature a total of four cameras, two on the front and two on the back. Considering the teaser, we believe that it could be the Nova 3.
The Huawei Nova 3 is the same handset that is going to make its debut in China on July 18. The handset was recently listed on a Chinese retail website, giving us an early look at the specifications of the handset.
According to leaked information, the phone is expected to come with features similar to the Honor 10 which was launched earlier this year. It features a 6.3-inch LCD display with a 19:9 aspect ratio and a full HD+ resolution. Just like the Honor 10, it will also come with a notch on top of the display. In terms of hardware, the Nova 3 packs a HiSilicon Kirin 970 processor with four Cortex-A73 cores clocked at 2.4 GHz and four Cortex-A53 cores at 1.8GHz. It will have 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage, which is expandable using a microSD card.
The smartphone, as suggested by Huawei itself, will feature two front cameras and two back cameras. At the back there is a 16-megapixel sensor with an f/1.8 aperture and a secondary 24-megapixel sensor. At the front there will be a 24-megapixel primary sensor paired with a 2-megapixel sensor, presumably for depth sensing features.
Other features include a fingerprint scanner at the back and a 3,750 mAh battery with Huawei’s Super Charge support. It will be running on Android Oreo 8.1 with Huawei’s EMUI layer on top. It is also expected to come with 3D Qmoji just like the Apple’s Animoji and will also have Huawei’s GPU Turbo feature, AI capabilities and features like scene recognition and app optimisation.
In a nutshell, this phone will be very similar to the Honor 10, with some upgrades. In fact even the design and its iconic Phantom Blue colour is expected to be a variant for the Nova 3. We won’t be surprised if the company launches it as an update to the Honor 10.
