If there is one Huawei device we have been waiting for recently, it’s definitely the two most hyped Nova siblings, the Huawei Nova 3 and Huawei Nova 3i. Finally, the company has taken the hood off the two devices and brought among us the two devices. Well, with the launch, we have also been confirmed of the speculations about the AI enabled Kirin 970 chipset and the incorporation of the all-new GPU Turbo technology in the Nova 3. If Kirin 970 sounds familiar, it’s because that is the same chipset used in Huawei’s latest flagship, the P20 Pro. Combination the Kirin 970 with the latest GPU Turbo technology certainly makes things interesting.
Talking about the device itself, design-wise, Huawei has ensured glass build protected by 3D double curved glass on both sides. Similarly, the display is 6.3 inches with an unusual 19.5:9 aspect ratio and FHD+ resolution. Huawei hasn’t forgotten to place the infamous notch too that is home for the ambient light sensor, proximity, IR sensor and dual cameras.
Like the other phones in the Nova series, this one also has a good focus on cameras besides other things. It seems like the inclusion of 4 cameras is a tradition for Huawei as the Nova 3, like the Nova 2i, Y9 2018, etc features 4 cameras. But unlike the P20 Pro, the distribution goes, 2 cameras at the front and two cameras at the back. On the rear side, there is 24+16 MP f/1.8 dual cameras and upfront there are 24+2 MP sensors, both of which support AI features.
If you are awed with these, wait a little longer because there is more! The Nova 3 supports IR face unlock, it’s got 6GB of RAM at disposal and a decent 3,750 mAh battery. On top of that, there is the GPU Turbo technology that boosts the gaming performance. Other than that, there is 3D AR Emoji support, the latest version of EMUI, EMUI 8.2, etc.
The device comes in four color options, Black, Light Blue, Promise Gold and Blur Violet.
