17 May 2018 – HUAWEI today launched the HUAWEI nova 3e smartphone, which features a FullView display and a dual-lens camera. Here are the HUAWEI nova 3e price, specifications and full tech briefing. Enjoy!
HUAWEI nova 3e Tech Briefing
The HUAWEI nova 3e is targeted at the youth market, with its high-resolution 24 MP selfie camera and its FullView display with the iPhone X-like notch. It also has 2.5D curved edge glass panels, with rounded corners for a more sophisticated look and feel.
The HUAWEI nova 3e is powered by the octa-core HiSilicon Kirin 659, and comes with 4 GB of LPDDR3 memory, and a whopping 128 GB of internal flash storage. If that is not enough, you can upgrade it using a microSD card (up to 256 GB).
In addition to its 24 MP front camera, the nova 3e also comes with a rear dual-lens camera. This consists of a 16 MP main camera, with a 2 MP secondary camera that serves as a depth sensor. This depth sensor offers better depth perception, allowing the nova 3e to apply its bokeh effects with greater accuracy.

To assuage consumer concern about the upcoming zero-rating of the GST, HUAWEI is offering a RM 79 cash back up to 31 May 2018, so the actual retail price will be RM 1,320 / US$ 332.50. Purchasers of HUAWEI nova 3e will also receive a HUAWEI tripod and selfie stick worth RM 68 / US$ 17, while stocks last.
Starting 1 June 2018, we expect HUAWEI to maintain the price of RM 1,320.
Do the new P20 and P20 Pro smartphones have the chops to take on Apple and Samsung? And what do the rumours say about the upcoming P20 Lite? Read on and find out!
The Three P20 Models
Huawei will eventually launch three P20 – the P20 Pro, the P20, and the P20 Lite. In the Paris launch, Huawei only announced the P20 and P20 Pro, leaving the P20 Lite for a later launch.
The Huawei P20 Pro
The P20 Pro has a 6.1″ OLED display with a Full HD+ resolution of 1080 x 2240 pixels. It is powered by the HiSilicon Kirin 970 octa-core SoC, with 6 GB of LPDDR4 memory, 128 GB of internal storage, and a 4,000 mAh battery.
The front camera has a 24 MP sensor, with f/2.0 lens. The “killer feature” is its Leica-branded triple lens camera, which is made up of a high-resolution dual-lens camera, and a separate telephoto camera.
The high-resolution dual-lens camera pairs a 40 MP RGB camera with f/1.8 lens, with a 20 MP monochrome camera with f/1.6 lens. The separate 8 MP RGB camera with f/2.4 telephotos lens is capable of 3X optical zoom, and 5X hybrid zoom.
The Huawei P20
The regular P20 has a 5.8″ IPS display with a Full HD+ resolution of 1080 x 2244 pixels. It is powered by the HiSilicon Kirin 970 octa-core SoC, with 4 GB of LPDDR4 memory, 128 GB of internal storage, and a 3,400 mAh battery.
It has a 24 MP front camera as well, but only a Leica-branded dual-lens main camera. The dual-lens camera pairs a 12 MP RGB sensor with a f/1.8 lens, with a 20 MP monochrome sensor with f/1.6 lens. This camera is supported by laser autofocus, and a dual-tone LED flash.
The Huawei P20 Lite (Nova 3e)
The P20 Lite has a 5.8″ IPS display with a Full HD+ resolution of 1080 x 2244 pixels. It is powered by the HiSilicon Kirin 659 octa-core SoC, with 4 GB of LPDDR3 memory, 64 GB of internal storage, and a 3,000 mAh battery.
It has the same front and rear camera setup as the regular P20, but lacks the laser autofocus, and only has a single LED flash. The dual-lens camera also lacks the Leica branding.

The Huawei P20 Press Release
PARIS, March 27, 2018: At an exclusive launch event held today at the iconic Grand Palais, HUAWEI Consumer Business Group unveiled the much-anticipated HUAWEI P20 and P20 Pro. The HUAWEI P20 Pro features the world’s first Leica triple camera and both devices include unprecedented AI advances, combining technology and art to bring to life a groundbreaking smartphone experience.
HUAWEI set new expectations for smartphone photography with the launch of the HUAWEI P9, the first Leica dual camera. With the debut of the HUAWEI P20 Series, HUAWEI makes capturing professional quality images a truly effortless experience for everyone.
Achieving DxOMark’s highest overall scores, the HUAWEI P20 Series includes advanced, intelligent camera systems that bring consumers features that ultimately enhance every part of the smartphone photography experience.
An advanced camera system to capture more light, more details and more beauty, featuring a revolutionary Leica triple camera and 5x Hybrid Zoom on the HUAWEI P20 Pro, and a Leica dual camera on the HUAWEI P20;
Innovative photography features, including Master AI with AI-driven professional photography and HUAWEI AIS (AI Image Stabilization), a powerful AI stabilization technology;
A timeless design with barely-there bezels and all-new gradient colors;
Ultimate performance, featuring the NPU on Kirin 970 and EMUI 8.1 based on Android 8.1 for a premium and smooth user experience.
An Exquisite Combination of Art and Technology for the Fashion Forward
The HUAWEI P20 Series features a striking, fashion-forward aesthetic. Most notably, the HUAWEI P20 and HUAWEI P20 Pro come in all-new, exclusive, fashionable colors, Twilight and Pink Gold, achieved by applying several layers of NCVM* optical coatings underneath the glass back, so light hitting the surface refracts and creates a vivid, yet gradual change of hue. The HUAWEI P20 and HUAWEI P20 Pro are also available in Black and Midnight Blue.
The 5.8-inch screen HUAWEI P20 and 6.1-inch screen HUAWEI P20 Pro feature ultra-thin bezels and impressive screen-to-body ratios for better viewing experiences with more on-screen information, whether reading or gaming. The HUAWEI FullView Display seamlessly blends with rounded edges, making the device comfortable to hold.
Inspired by Light and Technology, a Stunning Device Designed for Every Photography Fan
The HUAWEI P20 Series reflects the art of light, with camera features that enhance the smartphone photography experience.
The HUAWEI P20 Pro features a Leica triple camera with the highest total pixel count on a smartphone available in the market – the camera configuration is comprised of a 40MP RGB sensor, a 20MP monochrome sensor and an 8MP sensor with telephoto lens. It also features a color temperature sensor for better color reproduction.
With f/1.8, f/1.6 and f/2.4 wide aperture to capture crisp, clear details, the HUAWEI P20 Pro also includes a brand new Leica 3x telephoto (VARIO-SUMMILUX-H 1:1.6-2.4/27-80ASPH) lens for long-range photography of up to 5x Hybrid Zoom. The HUAWEI P20 Pro’s highly sensitive image sensor captures low light photos with up to ISO 102400.
The HUAWEI P20 builds on its predecessor’s foundation with a Leica dual camera featuring a 12MP lens with a pixel size as high as 1.55 μm, and a 20MP monochrome lens, enhancing the HUAWEI P20’s ability to capture photos in low-light settings.
The HUAWEI P20 Series devices support six-axis stabilization and 960fps super slow motion, which is 4x higher than the standard 240fps and captures details that cannot be seen with the naked eye. With Ultra Snapshot mode, the devices can capture an image in as little as 0.3 seconds by just double clicking the down volume button, even from an off screen.
Master AI Photography Experience for Everyone, Everywhere
With the Kirin 970 processor, the HUAWEI P20 Series automatically identifies more than 500 scenarios in 19 categories and selects photography modes and camera settings to deliver incredible, professional-looking images – even for novice photographers.
In addition, HUAWEI AIS steadies handheld night shots for incredible long exposure images without a tripod. Brand new to HUAWEI’s advanced camera system is 4D predictive focus. In this mode, the camera predicts moving objects and focuses on them with extreme efficiency to capture minute details of objects in motion.
In addition, the HUAWEI P20 Series features AI-Assisted Composition, providing intelligent suggestions to frame group shots and landscapes.
The HUAWEI P20 and HUAWEI P20 Pro feature a 24MP selfie camera** with AI beautification and 3D portrait lighting – the result is beautiful selfies with healthy-looking skin tone adjustments, delicately outlined facial details and realistic 3D feature enhancements.
Additionally, the HUAWEI HiAI Ecosystem enhances a variety of app experiences. For instance, the HUAWEI P20 Series includes on-device Prisma processing, which supports real-time filter recommendations based on scene and object recognition – the calculation speed is three to four times that of the cloud version.
In partnership with Google, the HUAWEI P20 Series supports Google ARCore delivering advanced AR capabilities.
