The Chinese manufacturer has just launched its first in-display front camera device- the Huawei Nova 4 in an event held a few hours ago in China. The new smartphone sports a front camera with a hole on the display. However, it is not the first device from the company to feature a front cam with a display hole.
The company unveiled Honor V20 or View 20 last week under its sub-brand Honor with a similar feature. While Honor V20 is set to launch on December 26, the company already stepped in the in-display camera segment with Huawei Nova 4.
Other highlights of this latest Huawei device includes 48MP rear snapper with a Sony IMX586 sensor which is part of a triple camera set up at the back and the gradient color design of the smartphone. The phone is up for pre-orders and will start shipping later this month. Let’s have a look at its specifications and prices.

Huawei Nova 4 launched in two different variants for different prices and strangely it’s not because of different RAM or internal storage, it is the different camera.
