Huawei Nova 4, the successor to the Nova 3 is all set to launch this month. The company launched a new teaser today of a smartphone with a hole on the top left of the smartphone. The cut out is most probably for the front-facing camera, eliminating a need for the notch.
If you’re feeling nostalgic, maybe you read our article on the Samsung A8s with a similar design concept. Although we had been hearing rumors about the Galaxy A8s for a while we still have no information on a launch date.
Going by the current situation seems like Huawei is beating Samsung to the punch. There are also a few rumors that reveal that Samsung is saving this new layout for their new upcoming flagship, the Galaxy S10.
Thanks to this new design solution, the Nova 4’s screen-to-body ratio should be quite impressive. We also see no fingerprint scanner at the back, or at the sides, so it’s safe to assume this one will come with an inbuilt fingerprint sensor.
According to the rumor mill, the smartphone will feature Huawei’s top of the line Kirin 980 Octa-Core processor. This is also the world’s first SoC manufactured on a 7nm process. It’s also the same SoC powering Huawei’s current flagships like Mate 20 and Honor Magic 2. We are expecting it to come with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage.
As for the camera department, we are expecting a dual camera set up at the front, and the back. Looking at the pictures, however, exhibits a different layout. We will know soon enough as more leaks start to surface.
Connectivity wise, the Huawei Nova 4 will include Dual 4G VoLTE, 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5.0, GPS w A-GPS, GLONASS, a USB Type C port and no headphone jack. Finally, the device will run on Android 9 Pie with EMUI 9.0 out of the box.
Huawei is all set to launch the smartphone on December 17.
