The much-awaited smartphones — the Huawei Nova 3 and Huawei Nova 3i have been launched in Nepal. The Kirin 970 powered Nova 3 is sure to lure a lot of buyers, with it’s AI capabilities, new GPU Turbo technology, and a really nice set of cameras. Other features include a huge battery, good storage options, some really nice eye candy color variants, and an IR face unlock feature. Let’s find out more about the specs, updated price, and availability of Huawei Nova 3 in Nepal.

Huawei Nova 3 Overview

The Nova 3 sports a 6.3-inch IPS LCD, with a 19.5:9 aspect ratio. The exact ratio was something rare at the time of the release but it has since been adopted by many mid-rangers alike. The panel comes with an FHD+ resolution and thanks to the with 3D double curved glass on both sides, it is easy to hold and isn’t slippery. There is also a notch on top, which for some reason people can’t get enough of. The device does come with a LED notification light but it rests behind the headpiece grill which doesn’t make it that useful in the daily usage.

Performance and Memory

The Kirin 970 SoC comes from Huawei’s in-house HiSilicon factory, the same processor used on their flagship Huawei P20 Pro. The Mali G72 MP12 takes care on the GPU front aided by the GPU Turbo technology. In our review, we didn’t face any lag in day to day usage. Even games like Asphalt 9 and Injustice 2 ran smoothly without any stutter. However, it does heat a little with games like PUBG in HD graphics and a high refresh rate. You also get 6GB of RAM and 128GB internal storage options, with SD card support that uses the second SIM slot.


The Nova 3 comes with two cameras on the back, 24 MP f/1.8+ 16 MP f/1.8. Even without a depth sensor, the bokeh effect comes out decent except under low light conditions. Normal shots are over-saturated and colors don’t look natural. It is also capable of 4k video recording up to 30fps and 1080p@60fps. The front also gets a dual camera treatment with a 24+2 MP setup. The 2MP here has been employed for better depth detection so the selfie portraits are decent.

The fingerprint sensor is mounted at the rear alongside the dual cameras. Other sensors include an accelerometer, proximity, Gyro, and compass. It also has a huge 3750mAH battery, no complaints here. Finally, it runs on Android Oreo 8.1 with EMUI 8.2 on top.
