A number of leaks during the last couple of weeks have presented surprises. Now, upcoming mid-range Nova 4 phone of Huawei will offer a pinhole for its front-facing camera. The company has officially announced the new smartphone. Huawei also confirmed that there is an upper-left pinhole and other attractive features, such as a 48MP rear-facing camera.
The other 2 lenses on the phone’s back include a 16MP wide-angle and 2MP depth sensor in an arrangement that looks a lot like the Huawei P20. The front features a 25MP selfie camera poking through the pinhole. Compared to the notched Nova 3, that’s a significant increase in display real-estate.
The phone packs a list of powerful yet definitely mid-range specs. It includes 6.4-inch 1080p (2310 x 1080, 398 PPI) LCD screen and a Kirin 970 chip (but not the latest Kirin 980 that launched in the Mate 20 series). Its other specs are near top-tier, with 8GB of RAM, 128GB storage and a 3,750mAh battery. The phone will pack Android 9 Pie (plus Huawei’s EMUI interface) out of the box, and come with the GPU Turbo software upgrade to streamline gaming sessions.
Huawei will sell two versions of the phone: a higher-tier packing the aforementioned 48MP rear camera to retail for CNY 3,399 (around $490, £390, AU$685) and a lower-tier model with a 20MP rear lens for CNY 3,099 (around $450, £356, AU$625). When and where it will be available (with localized pricing) has yet to be announced.
