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.


Huawei Nova 4 at a glance
When will the Huawei Nova 4 come out? Australian availability still to be confirmed
What’s new about the Huawei Nova 4? Triple rear camera, punched-hole front display, Kirin 970 processor
How much will the Huawei Nova 4 cost? Expected around $650-$750

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.

Design

  • Hole punch in front display
  • 6.4-inch LCD
  • Rear-mounted fingerprint sensor.

Camera

  • Triple rear cameras
  • 48MP primary sensor
  • 25MP front selfie camera

Performance

  • Kirin 970 processor
  • Android 9

Battery life

  • 3750mAh battery
  • 18W fast wired charging via USB-C

Early outlook

  • Huawei's pushing the quality of mid-range phones well

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.
