The wait is finally over. Huawei has officially taken the wrap of their new Nova 3 in Nepal. As expected, the flagship from the company was unveiled at a dedicated event held in Kathmandu, Nepal. The Nova 3 will continue the trend of Nova’s typical AI [quad] camera setup with an elegant design. Interested users can pre-order the phone and get a portable printer for free.
Let’s first talk about the crown jewel of the phone: the camera. The handset has four camera setup: two at the back and two at the front. The dual-camera on either side of the phone works cohesively to produce wonders. Focusing at the front, for selfie-enthusiasts, the phone has an impressive pair of 24MP + 2MP camera. Out of two, the first one is used to capture normal images and videos, while the latter is used for measuring depth effect. Both sensors pair up to produce great and vivid selfies even in dark environments like concerts.
And then at the back is an equally impressive set of dual 16MP + 24MP camera. The first one is an RGB sensor with a f/1.8 aperture and supports Phase Detection Auto Focus (PDAF). The second one is a Monochrome sensor also with a f/1.8 lens and PDAF.
While on paper, the phone’s camera looks amazing, with Huawei’s AI tech, it seems like a phone that packs a real punch. During the image processing, the AI makes use of insights into portraits, background scenes, and still objects that it got from studying over more than 100 million photos. Interestingly enough, the AI camera is capable of detecting more than 200 different scenes across eight different categories, including beaches, plants, night, stage performance, blue skies, flowers, rooms, and snow. That’s some interesting tech there.
And of course, the phone’s got a QMOJI, a feature like iPhone’s Animojis. This allows users to turn the emojis into real life that can mimic users’ facial expressions. There’s also a face unlock feature, that can unlock the phone through the face at any given lighting condition.
Regardless of what it possesses in terms of optics, the phone’s design is no slouch either. Huawei has been known for offering meticulously built phones like Mate 10 and P20 Pro, and the Nova 3 is no different here. A glass back, with an eye-candy 6.3-inch display (19.5:9 aspect ratio), is what assures to be a head turner.
At the helm of its heart is also something special and powerful: a Kirin 970 chipset. The octa-core processor comes with four Cortex-A73 quad-cluster performance core with a clock speed of 2.4GHz and a four Cortex-A53 with 1.8GHz power-efficient cores. And then, there’s 6GB of RAM and 128GB of ample internal storage.
With all the power and efficiency the phone got, the GPU Turbo technology is what makes it a game-changer for gamers. The GPU Turbo is expected to significantly increase the performance of the phone by up to 60 percent while conserving the battery life by up to 30 percent at the same time. The phone’s a real beast if you are looking to play graphics intensive games with no hiccups.
With such powerful hardware comes a powerful battery as well. The Huawei Nova 3 is powered by an impressive 3,750mAh battery with fast charging support. Rest assured, the phone runs on Android 8.1 Oreo on top of Huawei’s EMUI 8.2 skin.
