Huawei Nova 3, the Chinese phablet that challenges the Note 9

Huawei is launching the third generation of its Nova series, this is a revolutionized device with top-of-the-line features and a notch

Huawei has just announced the release of the third generation of its Nova line of smartphones. The Huawei Nova 3 will have top of the range features and wants to be the answer of the Chinese company to Samsung's Note 9.

For Huawei this is quite an important revolution, it should not be forgotten in fact that the Nova series has always represented a mid-range device that went to occupy a market section dedicated to users who wanted a phone with a very large screen. The Nova 3 instead will be released totally revolutionized, not only with a quality glass and metal body but also with a bezel-less screen and notch, the notch for the front camera sensors, at the top of the display. As for the rear camera instead we will find a dual sensor supported by an LED flash. And there is no shortage of support for the fingerprint scanner always on the back of the device.

Technical features Huawei Nova 3

At first glance the Huawei Nova 3 looks a lot like the Honor 10 and the P20 Pro, although compared to the "cousins" Nova 3 is much larger. The physical buttons for volume and power are all located on the right while the SIM and microSD slot is on the bottom left before the speakers. The display of the Huawei Nova 3 is a fullHD+ (2340 x 1080) with 19.5: 9 aspect ratio and is 6.3 inches. On board we find the 64-bit octa-core Kirin 970 processor, supported by 6 GB of RAM and 64 GB or 128 GB of expandable storage, depending on the model we decide to buy. The storage is expandable up to 256 GB via a microSD card. The battery of the Nova 3 is 3,750 mAh equipped with fast charging. The phone will run on Android 8.1 Oreo and customized with Emotion UI (EMUI) 8.2.
