The Huawei Nova 3 is not due for unveiling until July 18th. However, it looks like Huawei is really excited for this one as they pulled the trigger early by putting it up for pre-order on VMall.
With this move, we now have a more detailed and official look of the Huawei Nova 3. The specs list either confirmed or debunked some of the things that we already know from the device.
For one, the device will come with a HiSilicon Kirin 970 processor, instead of the Kirin 710 that we initially thought. This is actually good as it is the same chipset that’s powering some of Huawei’s high-end smartphones. The chipset is partnered by 6GB of RAM and 128GB of expandable storage.
The screen is at 6.3-inches with FHD+ resolution, and a display notch on a 19:9 aspect ratio body. There’s a fingerprint scanner on the back and a 3,750mAh battery inside.
Just like its predecessors, the Huawei Nova 3’s bragging rights is its quad-camera setup. There are 24-megapixel and 2-megapixel selfie shooters on the front. While on the back we have a 16-megapixel and 24-megapixel primary cameras.
It will come in different color variants. Some of which has a color-shifting look just like what we saw on the P20 series.
