Huawei Nova 4 Press Renders Leaked Ahead of Launch Next Week
As confirmed by the official teasers released by the manufacturer recently, Nova 4 will sport a relatively small O-shaped cut-out for the selfie camera on the top left corner. The presence of a relatively tiny ‘punch hole’ will allow the device to boast a very high screen-to-body ratio, although the bottom bezel is not as razor-thin. At the rear, we find a triple-camera setup with the third sensor and the LED flash module placed right below the two primary sensors. While there are no specific details available currently, we can confirm that the more expensive version of the Nova 4 will feature a 48MP Super Wide Angle primary sensor, while the other variants will be equipped with a 20MP resolution main sensor at the rear. A circular fingerprint sensor is also clearly visible, which means the handset will not feature an In-display fingerprint sensor. As for color options, these renders suggest the Nova 4 will be available in Aurora Blue, Red, White, and Black colors at launch.
Rumors suggest the Huawei Nova 4 will sport a 6.4-inch display with Full HD+ resolution and a rather unique 19.25:9 aspect ratio. In terms of processing power, the Nova 4 is expected to be identical to its predecessor, thanks to a Kirin 970 processor running under the hood. In the memory department, the Nova 4 could feature 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. As for optics, it is rumored that the premium version will feature a 48MP + 16MP + 2MP setup on the back, while the more affordable versions will get a 20MP + 16MP + 2MP setup. For selfies, the handset will have a 25MP snapper with several AI-backed features. The smartphone could be fueled by a 3750mAh capacity battery with support for 18W wired fast charging.
