Huawei Nova 3 Features

The new Huawei Nova 3 has a Kirin 970 chipset coupled with a massive 6GB RAM. It is tall screen and two dual camera setups. The chipset is made up a Cortex-A73 quad-cluster at 2.4 GHz for performance and four more Cortex-A53 cores at 1.8GHz for low-powered tasks. It has a 128GB internal storage and a 3750mAh battery that comes with typical Super Charge by Huawei.

The Huawei Nova 3 might look like the Huawei P20 Lite, but it is slightly bigger in size. It has a 6.3 inch LCD display with Full HD+ resolution and a 19:9 aspect ratio. The body dimensions are 157 x 73.7 x 7.3 mm and it weighs just 166 grams. It has a fingerprint scanner at the back which performs the same function as every Huawei sensor you can ever think of.


The dual camera setup at the back of the Huawei Nova 3 is the same as that of the Honor 10, which is a 16MP RGB sensor with f/1.8 aperture and a secondary 24MP Monochrome snapper with the same lens. At the front, you will also find a dual selfie camera setup situated at the notch on both sides of the ear piece. The primary is a 24MP camera and the secondary a 2MP sensor which take care of all the Portrait photos.
