Huawei’s new Nova 4 should perhaps come as little surprise. It’s one of the company’s first experiments with the punch hole design, mere days after Samsung unveiled the Galaxy A8s, which also features a similar aesthetic. “Punch hole” here refers to an emerging smartphone design trend that puts a camera cutout atop the screen to maximize screen real estate. The device is packed with some pretty impressive specs, starting with the 25-megapixel selfie shooter. The Nova 4 features a triple-camera system on the back, certainly not unheard of these days, especially in the premium flagship category. The front boasts a massive 6.4-inch display featuring a resolution of 2,310 x 1,080. Underneath it all is a Kirin 970 processor, the same chip found on the View 10 and P20 Pro. The phone comes with 8 GB of RAM, 128 GB of storage, and a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor as well. Keeping everything juiced up is a respectable 3,750 mAh battery, and the phone supports fast-charging via USB Type-C.
