Huawei Nova 4 will be the second phone to bring down Punch Hole Display after Honor View 20. However, this phone is still unreleased globally. Therefore, the phone has floating critics and reviews only.
The exact information is floating in the air since it has not launched yet.
The news released about the phone in China web portal on December 16, 2018. Huawei official claimed this phone having an impressive screen and camera innovation. Huawei and its sub-brand Honor’s brought every new phone off and on with some uniqueness for its fan. So, the punch hole is the new stuff of Huawei Nova 4
The phone has a splendid outlook, but still, it is not a premium smartphone. Rather, it is an upper mid-tier handset, where the Kirin 970 chipset installed. The same chipset Huawei used in Huawei Mate 10 series and this year Huawei P20. On the other hand, most upgraded Kirin 980 found in Huawei Mate 20 series.
What is Punch Hole Display?
Before beginning the review lets let you know about the new tech name. Have you ever penetrate your paper with a punch machine and bind that paper? The hole is exactly the same on the smartphone screen. The hole dedicatedly sits on the upper left corner at the phone.
What about Huawei Nova 4 pricing?
The cat still remains in the bag and we did not know about the exact pricing. But what we can do is to assume from our neighboring country, like India. In India, the price is 34,990 rupees. I think Huawei Nova 4 official price in Bangladesh will be BDT 44,990. Though the price is a little bit higher than the Huawei Nova 3i. But with their latest configuration price may be okey!!!
On that hole, Huawei put the selfie camera with 25MP. This is why it is called Punch Hole Display
So, this was the intro and now we are going to dive into the full review. So don’t jump away and stay tuned with our techt20 team.
Huawei Nova 4 Display and Design
Huawei Nova 4 now eagerly keeps its fan awaiting since it has splendid display. When we did our online experiment, we found it glossy with 6.4” LCD panelview. Resolution is 1080 pixels by 2310 pixels which is elegant for the market. In addition, it has 86.3% body to screen ratio.
There are two variants for the color such as Black and Blue
Unlike traditional phone, it has nice thin bezels. However, it is a little wide on the chin. The corners of this phone is also unique since it is elegantly rounded off. On the rear side, you can see the fingerprint sensor. Notably, you won’t feel the gap between back part along with the sensor. Therefore, there is chance to smudges all so easily from regular wiping. In spite of being clad in glass, it doesn’t have the wireless charging. That is the only disappointing issue from our side.
The most exciting thing is the glaring cutout of the display. This is place where the tiny 25MP camera accommodate. Still, it is a matter of great surprise how Huawei accommodate this huge 25MP. We’ve got the Crush Bule version in this review. It has the signature remark for the Huawei gradient finish. It also has blue and purple version seems flamboyant to us as well.
Huawei Nova 4 performance
Huawei Nova 4 has the shadow of the earlier version Huawei Nova 3i. But in some cases, it has more performance what Nova 3i had. One of them is the higher-end tech and more features. Another notable upgradation is the specs-wide that stand out from the Nova 3i. At earlier version, Nova 3i has 4GB RAM with an additional camera lens at the rear.

Huawei Bangladesh always focuses on smartphone battery life, this is also a fact for getting popularity in Bangladesh market. You will find the Nova 4 battery life with 3750mAh. By the way, It surprised us for this number of mAh. In addition, it can easily give you the thrill of daily moderate consumption of the battery. Such as moderate gaming, streaming the videos and surfing the web. We really think at first glance as a mid-range premium phone. Soon after, we turn back from our review just because of the absence of a wireless charger. However, at this price, it is reasonable and exciting.

Huawei Nova 4 camera configure with triple rear camera at the back. Primary Camera comprises of 20MP shooter. Apart from it, the Ultra Wide Angle consists of 16MP. Finally, Depth Sensor is 2MP, which helps to take closer shots more vivid.
The earlier version of Huawei Nova series didn’t have the Ultra Wide Angle Lens on the rear.
Our experiment with the camera is as usual like other Huawei phone. But we must admit it is matched with the pricing. However, the initial results of the camera are good since the photo was stunning. Moreover, it fits well when there is a lot of light.
Conversely, at night it cannot gather sufficient lights. It is less available in any other device. Therefore, background noise normally increased on.
The AI recognition is another sophisticated add on in the camera. Like all other smart devices, it can automatically detect your face at a first glance. Apart from, AI recognition. The AI interface offers more such as object recognition. This front facing camera is powered by 25MP sensor. Last time Nova 3i has two selfie sensor but this for full display Huawei uses one selfie sensor. Inside the hole, the selfie camera makes the phone awesome.
