Last week, Huawei teased an image on its Weibo account, suggesting that the Chinese company is all set to launch a smartphone with Infinity-O like display in December. While the phone, Nova 4 — successor of the Nova 3 — appeared in several leaks and concept renders, the exact launch date was not known.
However, the company has now posted another image on Weibo, revealing that the Huawei Nova 4 will be officially launched on 17th December.
The Huawei Nova 4 is confirmed to come with a display with ‘punch-hole’ cutout in the top-left corner for the front-facing camera. Because of this design, the phone is expected to have an impressive screen-to-body ratio.
Under the hood, the device is expected to be powered by the company’s own Kirin 980 octa-core chipset which is manufactured using 7nm process, claimed to be the world’s first mobile chipset to do so. This is the same processor that powers the Mate 20 series and the Honor Magic 2.
The phone is also expected to come with 6GB RAM and 128GB of internal storage. Since no fingerprint sensor is visible on the front or back, it’s safe to assume that the phone will have an in-display fingerprint sensor.
Connectivity options on the device could include Dual 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac dual-band, Bluetooth 5.0 Low Energy, GPS with A-GPS, GLONASS, BeiDou, USB Type-C port. On the software front, we are expecting Android 9 Pie-based EMUI 9.0 out-of-the-box.
To know the actual specifications of the Huawei Nova 4 and the phone’s pricing and availability information, we’ll have to wait until the company makes the phone official at a launch event on 17th December.
