HUAWEI nova 4
The HUAWEI nova 4 boasts the world’s first Punch FullView Display. It is also their first mid-range nova smartphone to feature triple cameras in the back.
The nova 4 is powered by the Hisilicon Kirin 970 flagship mobile SoC, and runs on EMUI 9.0. It comes with 8 GB of RAM, 128 GB of internal flash storage, and a 3,750 mAh battery.
Punch FullView Display
The HUAWEI nova 4 sports a 6.4-inch Punch FullView display. It takes bezel-less displays to new heights with a minimalist blind hole opening for the 25 MP front camera.
This design allows HUAWEI to eliminate the notch and achieve a screen-to-TP ratio of 91.8%.
The 25 MP front camera under the Punch FullView display is the industry’s smallest camera, measuring at only 3.05 mm – 20 percent smaller than the current industry standard.
The opening on the display is a blind hole, meaning the screen is not completely punched through. From assembly (sub-0.1mm margin of error) to adhesive application, the precise manufacturing processes minimise the light leakage from the edges of the blind hole.
Additionally, HUAWEI optimised the light transmittance performance of the blind hole so it is on par to a through hole.
Triple AI Cameras
In the rear, the HUAWEI nova 4 boasts Triple AI Cameras – a high-resolution 20 MP primary camera, a 16 MP ultra wide-angle camera and a 2 MP depth sensor, which HUAWEI calls a “bokeh lens”.
The main camera has a 20 MP sensor with 1.0 µm pixels, and is able to apply software bokeh effects to the background of its pictures with help from the 2 MP depth sensor.
The other camera pairs a 16 MP sensor with a 117-degree field of view. After adjusting for distortion, its performance is equivalent to a 103-degree 17 mm wide angle lens, capturing 2.4 times more information compared to 78-degree wide angle lens.
HUAWEI nova 4 Price + Availability
The HUAWEI nova 4 will be available for purchase from 14 February 2019 onwards, with two colour options – Black and Crush Blue. It has a launch price of RM 1,899 / ~US$ 462 / ~£360.
