Huawei Nova 3 has four cameras, a Kirin 970 SoC, 6GB of RAM, and an affordable price

Big or small for today's notch-y standards, the top bezel protrusion that houses the speaker and front camera on the Huawei P20 and P20 Pro is still there, and an eyesore for those who hate screen cutouts with passion.

For example, the front cameras can recognize and enhance up to eight scenes and objects.

The processor is a midrange Kirin 710 which will still be plenty powerful for diurnal tasks like using Facebook, Youtube, Instagram. Although the Kirin 710 doesn't come with a dedicated NPU, the Nova 3i is still packed with AI-powered photography features. Both offer quad cameras but the Nova 3 has 24MP+16MP dual rear cameras and 24MP+2MP dual front cameras while the Nova 3i offers 24MP + 2MP dual rear cameras and 16MP + 2MP dual front cameras. Also included is 3D Portrait lighting and there's also 3D Qmoji which is similar to Apple's Animoji. An example of the AI in action would be scene recognition where the camera recognizes the setting of the scene, whether you're capturing something in motion or something at night. It is a dual 16MP+2MP sensor.

The Nova 3i is like a mini version of the Nova 3.

The Huawei Nova 3i runs on Android 8.1 Oreo with company's custom EMUI 8.2 running on top of it. That's about the same price as the current Nova 2i at the time of launch. I imagine the folks at Essential had the same idea at some point and moved on from it due to the absolute uselessness of the display space above the camera.

The Huawei Nova 3 and Nova 3i are certainly much more capable than their predecessors, and they will be launching in Malaysia tomorrow. In terms of connectivity, both models will support dual 4G with dual VoLTE.

After several weeks of leaks and rumours, Huawei has officially introduced the new Nova series: the Nova 3 and Nova 3i.
