We may be devoured whole by holes that device manufacturers will dig to place its cameras before we talk about some of the more important aspects of some new-age phones.
The Galaxy A8s and Huawei Nova 4 have made splashes recently as the rumored frontrunners to feature the “hole-punched” display — where a minimal camera slot is placed entirely within the screen area. But with the Nova 4, we’re also hearing of its massive optical firepower with a 48-megapixel rear camera.
That speculation comes off of what’s supposedly a corporate slideshow capture leaked to Weibo that there will be at least two versions of the Nova 4. While both versions are to feature a 25-megapixel selfie camera in addition to 16-megapixel and 2-megapixel auxiliary rear sensors, that crucial lead sensor will either be 20 megapixels or 48 megapixels.
Huawei’s subsidiary, Honor, launched its View 20 smartphone this week which also features a 48-megapixel main camera.
Other standard specs listed include a 2310 x 1080 display spanning across 6.4 inches, a last-gen Kirin 970 chipset with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage and a 3,750mAh battery with 18W charging available. Colors range from black and white to blue and red.
It’s hard to determine the price disparity for a singular, but significant spec line at this point, but the launch event on December 17 should take care of things.
