Huawei, a Chinese smartphone manufacturer, is gearing up to launch the Huawei Nova 3 on July 18 in its home country. Interestingly, the phone is also expected to launch in India around the same time. Recently, the premium smartphone was listed for preorders by the Chinese e-commerce platform VMall, which revealed most details of the upcoming device.
The Huawei Nova 3 would be the first Huawei device to feature GPU Turbo technology, which the company claims, improves the phone’s graphic performance by up to 60 per cent, and the processor efficiency by up to 30 per cent. The GPU Turbo technology is a graphic processing acceleration technology that re-architects how graphics are processed on the system level and boosts the performance without reducing the processor’s efficiency.
In order to allow users to experience the GPU Turbo technology enhancement, Huawei would pre-install graphic-intensive games such as PUBG and Mobile Legends: Bang Bang, and provides 10 different vibrations for 30 different scenarios within these games including shots, explosions and quakes, amongst others.
Based on the outlook, the Huawei Nova 3 looks similar to the Huawei P20, but with a bigger screen and dual camera set-up on the front. The phone features a 6.3-inch diagonal fullHD+ LCD screen in 19:9 aspect ratio. It is powered by Kirin 970 system-on-chip (SoC), paired with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. The phone sports a dual camera set-up on the rear and front. The rear cameras use a 16-megapixel RGB sensor and a 24MP monochrome lens, whereas the front cameras use a combination of 24MP and 2MP. Powering the smartphone is a 3,750 mAh battery.
The Huawei Nova 3 boots Android Oreo-based EMUI ROM with native support for artificial intelligence. The phone features 3D Qmoji features, which is Huawei’s adaptation of Apple’s Animoji feature. The phone is available in black, aqua blue and primrose gold colours.
