Alleged press render of the Huawei Nova 4. Droid Shout

Thanks to alleged press renders from Droid Shout, we don’t have to wait until December 17 to get a proper first look at the Huawei Nova 4.

The renders show off the circular camera cutout that we’ve come to know and salivate over. The cutout eliminates the need for the dreaded notch, though you’ll notice that the chin’s bezels are still slightly larger than the side and top bezels.

That’s because the chin is presumably where some sensors and the antennas live. There’s room up top for an earpiece, but not much else.

Around back is a triple-camera setup and fingerprint sensor. The most expensive Nova 4 reportedly features a 48-megapixel primary camera. The less-expensive variants reportedly make do with a 20MP main sensor.

16MP and 2MP sensors reportedly accompany the rear primary sensor on all variants.

The alleged renders also show off the Nova 4’s color options: black, red, blue, and white. Every color except black features a gradient around back. The blue option in particular looks stunning and is reminiscent of Huawei’s Twilight color on the P20 Pro and Mate 20 Pro.

Elsewhere, the Nova 4 reportedly features a 6.4-inch display with Full HD+ resolution and a 19.25:9 aspect ratio, 25MP selfie camera, Huawei’s Kirin 970 processor, 8GB of RAM, 128GB of storage, and a 3,750mAh battery. The Nova 4 might support 18W wired fast charging.

As previously mentioned, the Nova 4 will launch December 17 in China. The Nova 4 isn’t the only phone to feature a circular camera cutout — the Galaxy A8s is Samsung’s first phone to feature its Infinity-O display.
