Huawei launched Nova 4 in China, its first smartphone that has a punch hole camera. The higher end variant is set at CNY 3,400 (or Rs. 35,000) and the lower end variant had been set for CNY 3,100 (or Rs 32,000).
Among the two variants of the smartphones launched by the company, the high-end variant possesses a 48MP main camera while the other one has a 20 MP primary sensor. Both variants are known to have a 25 MP front snapper and run on EMUI 9.0.1 based on Android 9.0 Pie.
Like the Huawei P20 Pro, the Nova 4 uses the Kirin 970 Processor. Also, both phones have 128GB on-board memory and 8 GB RAM. With 18W fast charge support, the Huawei Nova 4 possesses 3,750mAH battery. The 6.4 inch IPS LCD display, as said, has a punch hole offering 2310×1080 pixels resolution.
The rear triple camera would provide with great photography experiences with a 48MP sensor, f/1.8 aperture. The main camera has a 16MP ultra wide-angle snapper (f/2.2 aperture) and a 2MP depth sensor (f/2.4 aperture). The toned-down variant possesses a 20MP main camera with (f/1.8 aperture) and the same sensors like the higher-end variant.
With the launch of Huawei Nova 4, Huawei became the second smartphone maker to launch a smartphone having punch hole camera. The first one to do this was Samsung who launched Galaxy A8S in China recently.
The sub-brand of the company has, however, already introduced Honor View 20 with 48MP rare camera and punch hole front camera. Honor, however, did not reveal the specifications and features of the phone until its launch on January 22 in Paris.
Unlike Nova 4, Honor View 20 is known to be powered by HiSilicon Kirin 980 SoC that is the latest flagship chip by the company with dual NPU and ISP.
The front camera cut out is said to be 4.5mm in diameter that allures the Full View Display 3.0. Honor also introduced the Link Turbo feature that allows it to automatically access network connectivity and switch between 4G networks and Wi-Fi.
