Huawei Nova 3 features and specs
The device is beautifully covered with a glass back. With this and its catchy design (and colours), you may be compelled to buy the device when it you come across it.
Although the phone is wrapped in glass, it’s pretty light. The 6.3-inch Full HD+ display comes with a notch cutout on top housing two cameras for selfies. Other controls include the volume keys and power button on the right side and the SIM tray on the left. At the bottom panel, there’s a 3.5mm audio jack, USB Type-C port and a speaker grille.
Coming to the user interface (UI) of the Nova 3, it runs Android 8.1 Oreo with EMUI 8.2 layered on top. The phone comes pre-loaded with quite a number of apps like Facebook, Netflix, Messenger and Truecaller, in addition to Google’s suite of apps. There are some games installed like Asphalt Nitro, Sonic Runners and more.
Huawei Nova 3 packs a 16-megapixel primary camera on the rear and a 24-megapixel front shooter for selfies. It has a quad-camera setup which is not new to Huawei devices yet, there’s more. It includes AI features and other toys which will keep you playing around with the camera’s interface. If you’ve ever used an iPhone X camera, you should brace yourself for similar features here.
Some of these include iPhone’s ‘Live Photo’ portrayed on the Nova 3 as a moving picture, and the iPhone X’s portrait lighting effects. Another popular and trending feature on phones these days is the AR emoji first introduced by Apple on its iPhone X as ‘Animoji’. On the Nova 3, the rendition is called ‘3D Qmoji’ which are basically animated dogs, cats and rabbits mimicking one’s facial movements.
