Earlier today, Huawei officially announced the launch of its new sub-premium phone, the Nova 4. The company’s Nova series is positioned beneath its flagship Mate and P lineups, and mostly overlaps with the Honor premium phones in terms of pricing. It’s quite similar to Samsung’s Galaxy A series, in fact. The Nova 4 continues in that vein, as it brings a number of diluted flagship features to the table.

The Nova 4 features a 6.4-inch FHD+ LCD display. There’s a camera hole at the top left corner. There’s also a bottom bezel, which is rather amusing considering the efforts to take off the top bezel. It ships with 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage, both worthy of a flagship these days.

Camera-wise, the Nova 4 has two models: a high variant and a base model. The more-specced model features a 48 MP (f/1.8) main camera, a 16 MP (f/2.2) wide-angle camera, and a 2 MP (f/2.4) depth-sensor. The cheaper model replaces the 48 MP camera with a 20 MP one. It’s not the worst triple rear camera setup out there but it’s not the best either. At the front of both phones reside a 25 MP selfie shooter.

The Nova 4 is powered by a Kirin 970, the same SoC used on the Mate 10 Pro and Huawei P20 Pro. Not cutting edge anymore but definitely still a powerful chipset. Under the hood is a 3750 mAh battery, with 18 W fast charging keeping things quick. Software-wise, it runs on the EMUI 9.0.1-based Android 9.

The Nova 4 with a 48 MP camera has an MSRP of CNY 3,400 (US$495), while the 20 MP variant goes for CNY 3,100 (US$450).

I like tech, simple as. Half the time, you can catch me writing snarky sales copy. The rest of the time, I'm either keeping readers abreast with the latest happenings in the mobile tech world or watching football. I worked as both a journo and freelance content writer for a couple of years before joining the Notebookcheck team in 2017. Feel free to shoot me some questions on Twitter or Reddit if it so tickles thine fancy.
