“From its punch-hole front camera to a 48MP selfie shooter, the Nova 4 packs in a lot of interesting features”
Yes, in-display cameras are the hot new trend of the season. They are part of the latest attempt by manufacturers to solve the dilemma of delivering a full-screen fascia while also incorporating a selfie camera. Huawei’s Nova 4 has also arrived with such an assembly, but it’s grabbing eyeballs not just for that. This phone has been equipped with a number of other interesting features that truly make it a device worth watching out for. Priced at just 3,399 Yuan (around Rs 35,000), the smartphone ships with a large display and powerful specs. Let’s take a look at the top 5 features that make the Nova 4 a worthy buy.
A stunning full-screen display with a punch-hole camera
The Huawei Nova 4 is one of the first phones in the world that has punched a hole in the display and placed the front camera in it in a bid to get rid of the notch. This small cut-out is tinier than not just the traditional notch, but also the teardrop notch. The phone’s 6.4-inch IPS LCD is hence allowed to go edge-to-edge on its front surface. The chin at the bottom is also considerably small, so the immersive nature of the full-screen display is in full swing here.
48MP main camera
Among the three cameras sitting on the back of the Nova 4 is its 48MP main sensor. This once specification alone will get photography enthusiasts all ecstatic. The high-resolution camera will mean that the images will be captured in splendid detail, and if you fancy, you can even make large prints of them without the final output being fuzzy. This sensor comes with phase detection autofocus and has been paired with an f/1.8 lens, which will ensure that even low-light shots are captured properly by this shooter. But of course, you get two more snappers besides the 48MP unit, which brings us to…
Three rear cameras for extra photography chops
Accompanying the wide-angle 48MP shooter is a 16MP sensor paired with an f/2.2 lens, which will allow you to capture ultra-wide shots. There’s also a 2MP f/2.4 camera that’s meant to enable the depth effect. Switching between these three modes is a breeze thanks to the phone’s well-equipped Camera app, which has also been blessed with several AI-based features like scene recognition and more.
A high-res 25MP front snapper for selfies
This is what all the hole punching has been done for. The front camera of the Nova 4, which sits inside the display, is a 25MP unit with an f/2.0 lens. This will allow you to capture well-detailed selfies, while taking advantage of a beauty mode and other AI-based offerings. Like the rear camera, the selfie camera too grabs gyro-EIS that stabilises any video footage that’s captured by it. Speaking about videos, it can shoot 1080p clips at 30fps.
It’s not at all surprising that Huawei has used its proprietary Kirin 970 chipset in this phone. The SoC comprises a 2.4GHz octa-core processor and a Mali-G72 MP12 GPU. This assembly is accompanied by 8GB of RAM. The combination should ensure that heavy apps and games run smoothly. And if you’re concerned about storage, do take note that 128GB of space comes as standard on the Huawei Nova 4. Additionally, you can top it up to 512GB of expandable storage with the use of a microSD card.
Without a doubt, the new Huawei Nova 4 is an excellent phone with a design that may very well become a trend going into the next year. And we can’t wait to test it out once it lands in India, though it remains to be seen if dit does come to our shores.
