Huawei-Nova-4-tenaa

The Huawei Nova 4, which was showcased two weeks ago ahead of its launch last dayhas been spotted on TENAA ahead of it’s launch, which is scheduled for December 17, a week after the launch of Honor View 20. Both the smartphones will be sharing the same camera hole design for the front camera.

From the images posted by TENAA, we can easily make-out the “48MP AI Camera” label on the Huawei Nova 4, which must be the same camera sensor from that of Honor View 20 which was showed off recently. It does come with a triple camera setup.

The full specifications of the Huawei Nova 4 are not yet revealed completely by TENAA. But it is highly speculated that the Nova 4 will be powered by a flagship Kirin 980 chipset, same as in the Honor View 10. It features a 6.41 inch display, which is expected to be an LCD display sourced from BOE. The whole device is backed by a huge 3,900mAh battery, as per the latest information from TENAA.

The rear triple cameras are mounted vertically at the left side, with the flash beneath it. From the images posted by TENAA, we can see that the fingerprint sensor on board the Nova 4 is placed in the rear. Also, the images reveals that the Nova 4 will be having thin bezels on all three sides except the bottom. Since the Nova 4 has completely ditched the notch with the camera hole design, it is expected to skimp the IR based face unlock system which is seen in most of the latest flagship devices.

While there is no official confirmation about the pricing of the Nova 4, it is expected to be around Rs. 35,000-40,000 in the Indian market. We will update further specifications of the Nova 4 once it is revealed by TENAA.

This will come handy while clicking multiple photos from the 48MP camera resulting in a 48MP AI high-definition image.

The top-of the line Kirin 980 chipset is the world’s first processor based on 7nm process resulting in a 20 percent improved performance and 40 percent improved efficiency. It consists of an octa-core chipset with two ARM Cortex A76 high-performance cores that are clocked at 2.6 GHz, two ARM Cortex A76 cores clocked at 1.92 GHz and four ARM Cortex A55 cores clocked at 1.8 GHz for power efficiency.

Furthermore, with this smartphone Honor will be introducing the latest All-View Display that comes with an in-screen front camera design.
