Back in March this year, Chinese smartphone brand Huawei launched the Huawei Nova 3e that comes with 5.84-inch notched display, Kirin 659 SoC, 24 MP selfie camera, and, dual cameras at the back. Well now, it seems Huawei is soon going to launch a new smartphone called Huawei Nova 3 as it has appeared on TENAA’s website.
A Huawei smartphone that’s said to be the Nova 3 has been listed on TENAA’s website with model numbers PAR-AL00 and PAR-TL00. However, both the models have the same hardware under the hood. Both of these smartphones are powered by an unknown octa-core processor which is clocked at 2.36 GHz and is paired with 6 GB RAM. Well, this could be the company’s homegrown Kirin 659 SoC.
That said, the Nova 3 has a 6.3-inch display that has a resolution of 2340 x 1080 pixels. Well, while the images listed on TENAA’s website don’t show any notch, it’s safe to say that the smartphone does indeed have a notch. Having said that, the back of the smartphone looks the same as that of the Nova 3e. You can see dual cameras in the top-left corner with the fingerprint scanner at the centre.
This dual camera setup at the back is a combination of one 16 MP and one 24 MP camera. But, what’s worth noting here is that the Nova 3 comes with quad cameras – meaning two each on the front and back. While the dual camera setup at the back is a combination of 16 MP and 24 MP camera, the dual camera setup on the front consists of one 24 MP and one 2 MP camera.
Moving on, the Huawei Nova 3 runs Android 8.1 Oreo which is very likely to be layered with the company’s EMUI 8.1 custom skin atop. The smartphone also comes in two storage options – 64 GB and 128 GB – with an option to further expand the storage up to 256 GB via microSD card.
Lastly, the smartphone packs in a 3650 mAh battery that fuels the entire package.
