Huawei Nova 4 – Welcome to the “Punch-hole”
The second biggest smartphone maker Huawei has unveiled its first “punch hole” Nova 4, its first smartphone to feature a front-facing in display camera.
The Huawei Nova 4 features a 25MP selfie camera embedded into the display. Despite its quirky placement, the Nova 4’s front-facing camera isn’t the most interesting snapper on the device; around the back, you’ll find a 48MP Sony IMX586 f/1.8 main camera, which is teamed with a 16MP f/2ultra-wide-angle-angle lens and a 2MP f/2.4 depth sensor.
Naturally, the cameras also come equipped with Huawei’s usual array of additional features, including 4K video support, AI beauty, 3D
Huawei Nova 4 also features a 6.4in 2,310×1080 IPS display, the same Kirin 970 chipset with 8GB RAM, 128GB storage and a 3,750mAh battery with 18W fast charging support.
There’s no in-display fingerprint scanner, but find a more traditional rear-mounted sensor.
The Huawei Nova 4 will make its debut in China for 3,399 yuan (about £390), and a cheaper 3,099 yuan (£350) variant will be available with a lesser-specced 20MP main camera sensor.
