Huawei nova 3 review

Huawei nova 3, that is, another Chinese smartphone with a screen of 18:9


Huawei began to make smartphones with screens 18: 9 and can not stop. The Chinese giant is preparing to introduce several more products to the market with panels of this type, and one of them will be nova 3. That’s what is known about this smartphone.

Repetition of the past? Yes, but not really.

Huawei will soon introduce another device that will boast a large screen format 18: 9. Model nova 3 differs from Maimang 6, which in some markets is also known as Honor 9i or Huawei nova 2i, or Honor 7X, which will soon go on sale.

It’s enough just to look at the photos that appeared in the database of the Chinese telecommunications equipment market regulator TENAA (below) to see the first difference between Huawei nova 3 and other models of Huawei with 18: 9 panels. In this model, the manufacturer decided not to transfer the fingerprint scanner to the back panel.

Due to the fact that the scanner is under the screen, the lower frame of the nova 3 will be slightly larger, but this solution will appeal to people who prefer a fingerprint scanner on the front panels.

It is difficult to say what materials are made of his body. The photos published in IThome indicate a metal construction with stripes of antennas on the top and bottom faces. A photograph of the Chinese organization indicates a shiny metal frame and a back panel made of glass or plastic.

Let’s not guess and move on to information that has already been confirmed.
