Huawei is anything but a major name in the Indian cell phone space. Up until now, the Google Nexus 6P (Review) and the Huawei P9 (Review) have been the most unmistakable items from this organization, yet we've seen little else throughout the years. Presently, that may be going to change. The organization has all the earmarks of being instrumental in driving the development of Android internationally and for 2018, it is concentrating on growing its essence in India.
Huawei's sub-image Honor has possessed the capacity to make a minor imprint in the Indian cell phone advertise, passing by an ongoing report from Counterpoint Research, so it just bodes well for Huawei to attempt and get whatever number of its items here as would be prudent keeping in mind the end goal to reinforce its position. The year began off with the organization propelling its leader contributions, the P20 Pro (Review) and P20 Lite (Review), and now out of the blue, we have its Nova arrangement in the nation as well. The Nova 3 and Nova 3i have propelled at extremely aggressive value focuses, both including four camera sensors and man-made consciousness (AI) abilities.
We'll be trying the Nova 3 today, which is valued at Rs. 34,999 and goes up against the OnePlus 6 (Review) head-on. The last has ended up being a considerable offering, so we will see if the Nova 3's AI hacks swing things to support its.
Huawei Nova 3 outline
This year, most new cell phones appear to stick a settled plan mantra - keep the screen fringes thin, toss in a taller show, and include a score. The Nova 3 checks all these crates, which you may or probably won't care for. Aside from the outline, the new Iris Purple shading alternative is certain to get eyeballs. The upper segment of the telephone's back is blue, and it step by step blurs into purple on the lower half, which gives it a shocking look. The Twilight shading adaptation of the P20 Pro had a comparative impact, yet tragically, that choice didn't make it to India. There's a dark form of the Nova 3 as well, in the event that this is too out-there for you.The 6.3-inch IPS display produces vivid colours and the dull-HD+ (2340x1080) resolution ensures a high enough pixel density of 409ppi for smooth colour gradients in pictures and sharp text. Brightness is also good, and the Nova 3 is quite legible under sunlight. However, the display lacks Gorilla Glass or any form of scratch protection, which is not something we expected from a phone at this price. Our unit didn’t pick up any scratches during our test period, but you might want to use a screen protector to be on the safer side.
Huawei Nova 3 specifications, software, and features
The Huawei Nova 3 is well equipped to handle multitasking and relatively heavy usage too. It is built around the company’s own top-end SoC, called the Kirin 970. This octa-core chip has been used in the Huawei P20 Pro as well as the Honor 10 (Review) and Honor View 10 (Review). Compared to the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845, the Kirin 970 finds it tough to keep up when it comes to raw CPU and GPU power. The difference is evident in benchmarks, in which Snapdragon 845-based phones post considerably higher scores. The Nova 3 returned 200,950 points in AnTuTu and 31,354 points in 3DMark Ice Storm Unlimited. Meanwhile, the Snapragon 845-based ZenFone 5Z (Review) posted 2,71861 and 64,593 points respectively in the same tests.
Huawei has launched the Nova 3 in India with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, and there are no variants. Sadly, the Indian model doesn’t get NFC. FM radio is also missing, for those who care about it. There’s no wireless charging, and there’s no water-resistant treatment either. You do get a good assortment of sensors, GPS, dual-band Wi-Fi 802.11ac, Bluetooth 4.2, and USB-OTG.
