Huawei launches Nova 4 with no notch display and Kirin 970 processor

The Nova 4 features a 6.4-inch FHD+ LCD display.

What just happened? One week after Samsung debuted the Galaxy A8s in the same market, Huawei has launched the Nova 4 in China. For security, it'll have a rear mounted fingerprint sensor. That hole, by the way, houses a 25MP selfie camera that is actually embedded into the display itself. To be pitted against the likes of OnePlus 6T and others smartphones in the segment, the new Huawei Nova 4 is priced at 3099 RMB (about Rs. 35,000). While the high-end variant comes with 48MP + 16MP + 2MP triple camera setup on the rear, the standard variant sports 20MP + 16MP + 2MP triple rear camera setup. In addition to the primary camera, there's a secondary 16MP 117-degree ultra-wide angle camera with a f/2.2 aperture and third 2MP depth sensor with a f/2.4 aperture.

The device comes with up to 8GB of RAM and up to 128GB of internal storage.

Plus, the device comes pre-installed with Android 9 Pie and runs the Chinese tech giant's EMUI skin on top of it.

Furthermore, there is another scaled down variant of the Nova 4 which comes with a 20-megapixel, 16-megapixel, and 2-megapixel rear snappers as the differentiating factors.

Now available in China, the Nova 4 will likely make its way to India and Europe as well. Huawei Nova 4 is fueled by a 3,750mAh battery with 18W fast charging support. In China, the more mid-range Nova 4 will retail for 3,100 CNY ($450 USD) and the higher-end variant will go for 3,400 CNY ($490 USD).
