Huawei Nova 4 launched with the world's first 48MP Sony IMX586 camera!


Gone are the days when flagship got all the attention. Now is the age of the upper middle rangers and in some ways this particular category of smartphones becomes quite attentive. Remember the world's first screen (infinity O) camera's smartphone from Samsung that was a mid-range Galaxy device? Huawei goes for a similar strategy and it recently launched Huawei Nova 4 is interesting in many aspects. First, it will connect to the Galaxy A8S by having a front camera on the screen, which caused the company to get the phone almost full screen. But Huawei claims it takes things to the next level by using the world's smallest camera set-up.

Huawei has added the 25MP front in the upper left corner of the phone that the company claims will at least disturb the app area. Nova 4 hides the surrounding light sensor inside and uses a microphone to maximize screen properties. The company adds that the front camera on the phone is the smallest module in the mobile phone industry at the moment. It measures only 3.5 mm and ensures that the overall diameter of the framing opening is only 4.5 mm, which is less compared to competitor offers with over 6.5 mm diameter slits.
