Huawei’s next mid-range smartphone looks to be set for an impending launch, having appeared in a filing with Chinese regulatory body TENAA. As is usually the case, we’re treated to a full rundown of its specifications.
The display of the Huawei Nova 3 is a 6.3-inch LCD panel with a resolution of 2340 x 1080. This gives it an aspect ratio of 19:9, and is nothing entire new from Huawei. Although it perhaps indicates that the industry is ready to move away from the popular 18:9 screens.
Powering the Nova 3 is an octa-core CPU clocked at 2.3GHz. Which SoC this happens to be is unclear, but it could be the newer in-house Kirin 710. The processor is paired with 6GB RAM and 64/128GB internal storage. Powering everything is a 3650mAh battery.
The quad camera setup falls into a two-in-front and two-in-the-back configuration. Rear cameras weigh with 16MP plus 24MP sensors. Presumably, the 24MP sensor only shoots in monochrome, but that information was not available in the listing. The front two cameras – 24MP plus 2MP – look like they have been designed to squeeze into a tiny notch at the top of the screen.
We’re still a little light on details as to when the Huawei Nova 3 will be released, but rumour has it that the phone is coming very, very soon.
