Over the past few months, Huawei and the sub-brand Honor have drawn the attention of Indian consumers with their stylish Android devices with high-quality specifications and powerful performance at affordable prices. The devices feature advanced technologies such as artificial intelligence, as well as the latest technologies for processors and cameras. No wonder, the two brands have a quick recall when it comes to choosing a new device.
Recently, Huawei Consumer Business Group unveiled its brand new nova series – Nova 3 and Nova 3i in India. With advanced AI capabilities and a powerful AI quad camera, the devices are well placed to provide a great user experience to the youth, the main focus of Huawei here. We received the nova 3 (Iris Purple) test unit for a product evaluation; it comes in a trendy design and sells for Rs 34,999.
Out of the box, de nova 3 has a display with minimal edges; there is a trendy 6.3 inch FHD + Full View screen with an aspect ratio of 19.5: 9. The precise engineering techniques used by Huawei ensure that the four corners of the screen are exactly the same, so that the screen connects seamlessly to the middle frame in an aesthetically pleasing way. Both sides of the nova 3 are covered with a smooth, double curved glass panel and the back panel shows the gradient effect with a beautiful texture.
Trying the guts, the nova 3 has a Kirin 970 SOC, a new generation of high-speed mobile chips with an important new function: a Neural Processing Unit (NPU). The device comes with an ambient light sensor and a proximity sensor, which means the face unlock function works in low light. Not only that, in order to achieve a true 24/7 quick release, an infrared sensor is placed next to the camera to help the face of users in dark environments to read.
For the public who loves games, de nova offers 3 Kirin 970 with support for Huawei's proprietary GPU Turbo graphics processing technology, allowing for a high-quality gaming experience. If a user encounters a network problem in a game, the devices can optimize the connection by switching to a network with the lowest latency. In addition, both SIM slots support 4G and VoLTE, allowing users to simultaneously play games and make calls. The built-in AI can identify objects from the camera and ask the web for information, as well as a link to buy it online.
De nova 3 supports two cameras on the front with a 24 MP primary camera and a second camera of 2 MP. The first captures photos & videos with bright brightness, while the second camera provides the depth data. The two sensors work together to concentrate on the subject and record images with a field of view similar to the human eye, resulting in truly compelling photos. In addition, the artificially intelligent device would ensure that the light falls precisely in the right place to accentuate the contours of the face and hide imperfections, and to adapt skin tones and facial details to age and gender.
The overall performance of the nova 3 is smooth and error-free. Streaming video and playing games is a wonderful experience and I think this device is ideal for a dynamic visual experience for reading, video streaming or gaming. Camera is where this phone really shines, because it delivers beautiful photos. The 3750 mAh battery of the phone is good enough to last 10-12 hours with moderate use.
My suggestion: Get de nova 3 if you want a good design, good camera and a long battery life.
