What to expect
The Huawei Nova 4 is Huawei's more affordable take on the Mate 20 and comes with an all-new "punched hole" front camera and a triple camera array.
The Huawei Nova 4 provides a lot of the fun toys found on the Mate 20 or P20 Pro at a significantly lower price point.
Chinese phone brand Huawei has produced some exceptional phones in recent memory, heavily pushing its premium P-series and Mate phones as the best you can buy. However, it's also a player in the more affordable mid-range and budget spaces, typically releasing phones under its Nova sub-brand for those with more moderate wallets. The Huawei Nova 4 looks to provide some excellent value for those chasing a mid-range price point.

- 25MP front selfie camera
- Kirin 970 processor

Pricing and availability
- The Huawei Nova 4 will launch in China first.
- Price conversion suggests a likely Australian price point between $650-$750
Huawei's a Chinese company with a huge market presence there, so it's not surprising that its first launch market for the Huawei Nova 4 would be in China. There, the Huawei Nova 4 will cost 3,399 yuan – about $650 or so at current conversion rates – when it launches.
Huawei hasn't yet confirmed Australian launch plans for the Huawei Nova 4, although it has enjoyed considerable success in the local market, and we've seen numerous Nova-branded phones here in the past. At that price point, it's not out of the question that it could land as a lower-cost plan option with carriers as well as being sold outright, but we'll have to wait and see what happens on that score.
