The upcoming Huawei Nova 3 is a massive mid-range handset with a 6.3-inch FullView display, a design similar to the P20 flagship, and dual cameras for both selfies and daily mobile photography tasks. Expected to be unveiled on July 18, the Nova 3 uses a HiSilicon Kirin 710 processor, next to 4 GB RAM and 64 GB storage.

As it usually happens in many fields, some design traits and technical solutions introduced by premium products are making their way — slower or faster — into the more affordable areas of the market. The upcoming Huawei Nova 3, for example, adopts a design inspired by the Huawei P20 lineup, combined with a generous FullView display with a 6.3-inch diagonal, as well as not one, but two dual cameras (one for selfies and one on the back for use as a main image shooter, of course).

According to the TENAA listing for this handset, the Huawei Nova 3 has a HiSilicon Kirin 710 processor under the hood, next to 4 GB of memory and 64 GB internal storage. However, as it usually happens with Huawei's mid-range and premium handsets, a more capable variant is expected to launch as well. In this case, that variant will sport 6 GB of memory and 128 GB internal storage. Both variants will also offer a microSD slot.

In addition to the above, the Huawei Nova 3 also features a 3,650 mAh battery and will run Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box, most likely with the company's EMUI skin on top. According to the TENAA listing, the main camera setup combines a 16 MP unit and a 24 MP one while the selfie shooter features a 24 MP + 2 MP pair of sensors.

There is no information about the prices to expect, but more details should surface in the two weeks until the alleged launch date. Based on the history of the Nova lineup, this upcoming handset should launch in China first, and then it should reach Europe as well. Considering the troubled relationship Huawei has with the US authorities, the Nova 3 might not hit the country anytime soon.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
