Every year, the Chinese giant, Huawei has been stepping up the game in the mobile phone world. Partnership with Leica has changed the way we take photos from our mobiles, and latest P20 Pro has further upped the ante. It’s too early to predict what future holds for the company but its upcoming offering, Huawei Nova 3 tells us that apart from strengthening the top tier, it is also hardening the mid-rangers.
The 3rd iteration in the successful Nova series was found listed on TENAA, the Chinese regulatory website, where its specs reveal some interesting blend of features for a mid-ranger.
Huawei Nova 3 boasts a gigantic 6.3 inches screen that easily compels us to call it a phablet but to our dismay its a TFT display.
The device will be powered by a 2.3GHz octa-core processor which strongly suggests that the phone may come with the already launched Kirin 659 chipset. However, it is highly likely that it will be equipped with a newer Kirin 670 or Kirin 710.
The processor will be accompanied by 6 GB RAM, and the two variants will have 64GB and 128GB storage capacity. A microSD card slot will also be available to further enhance the storage up to 256 GB.
The highlight of the Huawei Nova 3 remains its quad cameras — 24MP + 2MP on front and 16MP + 24MP lenses on the rear part. Notch is in the trend of 2018, and this device is reportedly coming with one around the front lenses.
The phone will sport a glass back with a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor and a 3650 mAh battery which is expected to last a whole day easily. As Huawei’s midrange processors are known to be power efficient, we assume the device will perform well in terms of battery juice.
Huawei has confirmed at a press meeting that the phone will be launched on July 18 in Shenzhen, China.
According to the TENAA listings, the phone will only come in Black color, but the pictures depict the phone in the Blue color which makes us think that the phone might land in Blue and Black colors.
