Huawei is now rumored to be a working on a new Nova series phone that is likely to sport a full screen design. Speculations are rife that it will hit the market as Huawei Nova 3 and may have a design that is very similar to the Nova 2i smartphone that was recently launched in Malaysia. The Chinese manufacturer has released the same smartphone as Mate 10 Lite in Europe, Maimang 6 in China and Honor 9i in India.
Leaked information reveals that the alleged Nova 3 may include a 5.93-inch display that will carry support for FHD+ resolution of 2160 x 1080 pixels. Since it is a full screen design phone, its fingerprint scanner will probably reside on its back panel.
Like the Nova 2i, the rumored Nova 3 will be equipped with quad cameras. The rear side may feature 16-megapixel + 20-megapixel dual camera system and its front may house 20-megapixel + 2-megapixel dual selfie cameras.
The Nova 3 is speculated to be driven by the new Kirin 670 SoC that is speculated to be built on a 12nm manufacturing process. Reports have revealed that it could be a hexa-core SoC featuring two Moscow custom cores working at 2.2 GHz and four cores of Cortex A53 processor gunning at 2.0 GHz along with Mali G72MP4 graphics.
The same chipset was speculated to be present inside the recently introduced Honor 7X. However, the handset was launched with Kirin 659 SoC. The Huawei Nova 3 is expected to include a 3,340mAh battery with 18w fast charging support. There is no information available on the RAM and storage variants of the Nova 3. Since it seems to be a midrange phone, it may arrive in 3 GB / 4 GB RAM options and 32 GB / 64 GB storage models.
The Nova 2 was sold with a starting price of 2,499 Yuan (~$375). However, since the average selling price of smartphones have been rising consistently, the Nova 3 is speculated to be priced around 2,999 Yuan (~$450). It is likely to launch on Dec. 5.
