A few days ago we brought you news of the Huawei Nova 3 gaming smartphone’s launch in China. We’d only finished saying that it would launch in India by the end of this month, and now we see Amazon India already teasing a Nova launch in India. That’s much ahead of the expected schedule indeed.

Currently celebrating its annual global shopping event Amazon Prime Day, Amazon India has teased the Huawei Nova 3 on its home page slideshow with an outline of the phone and the date of its launch: July 26. Rather predictably, the teaser page from Amazon does not reveal any specifications about the phone just yet. It does, however, tell us that the phone will be an Amazon-exclusive and throw hints at what it might come with, by attaching enigmatic messages to four animated images like, ‘Capture Your Moments’, ‘For You & Your View’, ‘Create Your Fun’, and ‘More is Welcome’. The last one alone hints at the 128GB storage it might feature.

128GB storage? Yes, please.

What we know so far about the specs remains the same. The display will be a 6.3-inch Full HD+ LCD unit with an aspect ratio of 19.5:9 and a notch on the top. Its chipset is a Kirin 970 SoC with four Cortex-A73 cores clocked at 2.4 GHz for performance tasks and another four Cortex-A53 cores at 1.8GHz for low-power tasks. RAM should be a plentiful 6GB and storage, as mentioned before, a good 128GB. The GPU on this seems special: the Mali-G72 MP12. It's a GPU that’s supposedly the first in India to feature Huawei’s GPU Turbo technology, a technology that will help the GPU speed up for better gaming performance.

The dual-camera setup on the back of the Huawei Nova 3 will be a 16-megapixel sensor combined with a 24-megapixel secondary sensor for portrait photos. The setup on the front is also dual: it will be a 24-megapixel sensor paired with a 2-megapixel secondary sensor with face unlock capability. The battery will be a 3,750mAh unit, and the phone will support Huawei’s Super Charge technology. The phone is expected to come with Android 8.1 Oreo running out-of-the-box while using Huawei’s proprietary EMUI 8.2 for user interface.

Reports say that the Huawei Nova 3 will be joined by Nova 3i, a watered-down version of the Nova 3. It is expected to feature the new Kirin 710 chipset and be available in two variants: 4GB RAM + 64GB storage and 6GB RAM + 128GB storage. It is also expected to come with a 16-megapixel sensor combined with a 2-megapixel sensor on the back and a 24-megapixel sensor combined with a 2-megapixel sensor on the front. The Nova 3i is also said to feature a 3,340mAh battery. Come July 26, we’ll know if all we expect and know about the new Huawei is accurate.
