“The Nova 3 is a high-end offering with 6GB of RAM, Android Oreo, and dual front and rear cameras”
Huawei’s latest Nova series smartphone, the Nova 3, has been the subject of a number of reports and leaks lately. Today, the company has officially launched the smartphone as a high-end offering. The newest Nova smartphone flaunts four cameras – two at the rear and two on the front – and boots Android 8.1 Oreo with EMUI 8.2 out of the box. The phone gets face unlock that utilises infrared light to detect your face even under low-light conditions. The device also comes with 3D Qmoji, which lets you create your digital avatars using animated characters.
Design-wise, the Huawei Nova 3 flaunts a glass back panel, a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor, and a nearly bezel-less screen with a notch for front sensors. The phone sports a 6.3-inch full HD+ 3D display with an aspect ratio of 19.5:9. Powering the device is the flagship-grade octa-core Kirin 970 processor that’s based on 10nm fabrication technology, aided by Mali-G72 GPU, i7 co-processor, and GPU Turbo technology.
Coming to the other specs, the Huawei Nova 3 flaunts a 16-megapixel primary shooter at the rear with f/1.8 aperture, PDAF, continuous autofocus (CAF), and AI scene detection that can recognise over 500 scenes. The primary snapper is accompanied by a 24MP f/1.8 secondary camera that offers portrait shots. On the front, you get a dual 24MP + 2MP camera setup with the former sensor offering an aperture of f/2.0. The connectivity options include 4G LTE, VoLTE, dual-SIM slots, dual-band Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.2 LE, USB Type-C, and GPS. A 3,750mAh battery with fast charging keeps the whole show running.
The Huawei Nova 3’s pricing details will be revealed on July 18th. Pre-orders are open for the phone on Vmall in China, and it will go on sale starting July 20th in four colour variants – purple, black, blue, and gold.
