Huawei Nova 4 becomes official as a successor to the popular Nova 3 series. However, the new device comes with an Infinity-O display that boasts an in-display camera hole and the world’s first 48MP smartphone camera as well.

Huawei Nova 4 – Features

The Huawei Nova 4 offers a glass sandwich design with a metal frame running through the middle. On the front, there is an edge-to-edge Full HD+ display with 1080 x 2310 pixels resolution and 86.3% screen-to-body ratio. You will also witness a small camera hole measuring 4.5mm at the top left corner of the screen. However, Nova 4 lacks the in-display fingerprint sensor.

Huawei Nova 4 is a dual SIM supported handset that runs Android 9.0 Pie under the hood. The smartphone gets powered by the company’s own HiSilicon Kirin 970 SoC that is considered a competitive midranger even it becomes one year old. Huawei has also incorporated an 8GB of RAM along with 128GB of native storage that may also be expanded by using a microSD card slot.


As far as the camera specs are considered, Nova 4 offers two different models with slightly different camera configuration. The regular Huawei Nova 4 has a 20MP f/1.8 main sensor, a 16MP f/2.2 wide-angle sensor and a 2MP f/2.4 camera for bokeh effect. Whereas, the higher-end Nova 4 features a 48MP f/1.8 main camera instead, with the same secondary sensors.

Huawei has introduced a 3,750 mAh battery backup that supports fast charging features.
