Huawei has finalised the release date of the Nova 3 handset along with the TalkBand B5 on social media today. The company’s teaser on Weibo says the handset and the smart band will launch on July 18 at the Shenzhen Universiade Stadium in China. The Huawei Nova 3 has already received TENAA’s approval, hence much of its physical and internal characteristics are known to us. As for the Talkband B5, that was also leaked this weekend in a set of images.
TENAA’s listing of the Nova 3 describes the handset to bear a 6.3-inch Full-HD+ display with a notch and a 19.5:9 aspect ratio. The processor identity is not yet known but it could be the Kirin 659 SoC. Recent reports tip a yet unreleased Kirin 710 SoC that we would gladly accept as a substitute to the Kirin 659. There are two variants of the phone with model number – PAR-AL00 and PAR-TL00. Both come with 6GB of RAM and internal storage room is 64GB expandable up to 256GB.
The Nova 3 is a quad-camera device with two sensors up front – 24MP + 2MP. The rear combo of 24MP + 16MP look even more formidable on paper but real performance will be judged after release. It has a sizable 3650mAh juice pack that will power Android 8.1 Oreo, with EMUI of course.
In terms of looks, its the same design from Huawei seen on the P20 Lite with some minimal changes like the camera placement. Otherwise, they look the same. The Nova 3 also look set to be released on July 28 in the Philippines.
