Huawei Nova 4 is now official. The mid-range smartphone was unveiled in China on Monday, and features a display hole for the large 25-megapixel front camera, apart from a 48-megapixel rear camera with Sony’s new IMX586 sensor that’s part of a triple rear camera setup, as well as its gradient colour design. It runs on Huawei’s own HiSilicon Kirin 970 SoC. The Huawei Nova 4 has gone up for pre-orders, and will become available to buy later this month, the company revealed at its launch event. Notably, this is not the first smartphone from the company to have a display hole, though the other hasn’t been fully launched yet.

Sub-brand Honor last week unveiled the Honor V20 aka Honor View 20 last week for a launch on December 26. Samsung has also launched a smartphone with a display hole, called the Galaxy A8s.
