It might be known as the Nova 4e
Huawei’s Nova 4 is a hot topic as it is one of the few phones that come with a hole punch display. While we are currently reviewing a unit, Huawei has publicly stated that they are not bringing the Nova 4 to the Philippines—for now.
Given Huawei’s statement, there are two possible scenarios: either Huawei changes their mind and make the Nova 4 available in the Philippines, or introduce a different Nova 4 variant to the country.
The latter appears to be plausible, as reports of a P30 Lite have surfaced.
For those unfamiliar with Huawei’s naming scheme, the Nova 2i is known as the Mate 10 Lite, while the Nova 3e is known as the P20 Lite. According to rumors, the P30 Lite will be the Nova 4e in China.
Going to the specs, the P30 Lite/Nova 4e will come with a Kirin 710 processor, at least 6GB RAM, a 6-inch Full HD+ display with a teardrop notch, and Android Pie out of the box. Unlike other Kirin 710-equipped phones, the P30 Lite/Nova 4e comes with 18w quick charging.
Case renders confirm that there will be a headphone jack and a large hole in the back to house the triple rear camera module—reported to consist of a 20-megapixel + 16-megapixel + 2-megapixel configuration.
Like all of Huawei’s “Lite” models, expect the P30 Lite/Nova 4e to be unveiled a few weeks before the launch of the P30 series.
