HUAWEI nova 3e 4G Phablet International Version

Huawei Nova 3e is a mid-range smartphone with a progressive frameless screen and an “Notch”. The device received a powerful front camera, as well as a large display with a resolution of Full HD+. Its announcement took place in March 2018.


The case of Huawei Nova 3e has a glass rear part that connects to the glass of the front panel with a metal frame. Futuristic design with a large screen is complemented by very thin frames. The glossy case looks extremely impressive and advantageous, reflecting any rays from the light sources. It lies perfectly in the hand, because it is very thin and light.

The Chinese manufacturer has placed a fingerprint scanner on the back, where the index finger reaches without problems. This recognition occurs instantly. At the bottom there is not only a USB Type-C connector, but also a 3.5 mm headphone input. There is also a microphone and an external speaker.

In front is a frameless screen with a small upper “eyebrow” and a lower “chin”. Since the case is glossy, it actively collects fingerprints. The device received a battery with a capacity of 3000 mAh. Available colors: black, blue, gold and pink. Dimensions: height – 148.6 mm, thickness – 7.4 mm, width – 71.2 mm, weight – 145 g.


In Nova 3e there is a 5.84-inch screen with a resolution of 2280 * 1080 pixels. Here is an IPS-matrix with excellent viewing angles and a juicy picture. It is worth noting excellent detail due to the resolution of FHD+. The display is bright enough, so the image remains readable even under direct sunlight. The overall color temperature goes a little blue, but the user can edit the gamma to your taste. Aspect ratio of the screen is 19: 9. This corresponds to the fashionable format of FullView, when in the field of view is much more objects and information. At the same time, a small cut-out for a speaker and a front camera practically does not interfere with everyday use.

Iron and productivity

The Nova 3e smartphone is equipped with the eight-core (Cortex-A53) Kirin 659 processor, the maximum frequency of which is 2360 MHz. There is a 3D-accelerator Mali-T830 MP2. The amount of RAM is 4 GB. Under the file storage allocated about 32 GB, 64 GB or 128 GB, depending on the version. Moreover, at any time you can install a microSD memory card up to 256 GB.

The device is running the operating system Android 8.0, which is supplemented by the proprietary EMUI 8.0 shell. The overall performance of the smartphone is quite high for the middle segment. Simple tasks are handled instantly, but with games there can be certain problems in the form of brakes and not the most beautiful graphics. Test AnTuTu v6 demonstrates the following result: about 65000 points, GeekBench 4.0 (multi) – 3480.

Communication and sound

We can state that Huawei Nova 3e has a very loud multimedia speaker. And its sound is quite clean. Of course, there are not enough succulent basses, but otherwise there are almost no complaints. Even better, the situation is with the sound in high-quality headphones. There is support for NFC, two SIM cards, and also networks of the fourth generation (LTE). The spoken speaker manifests itself on the best side. The interlocutor is heard perfectly, and he hears you in a similar way.


On the back of Huawei Nova 3e is a double chamber. It consists of a 16-megapixel sensor with a luminous power of 2.0, and an additional 2-megapixel sensor with a light output of 2.2, which helps create a bokeh effect. Such a camera perfectly manifests itself even in poor conditions with insufficient lighting.

The manufacturer paid special attention to the frontal 16-megapixel camera Sony IMX578 with aperture 2.0 and wide-angle lens. This allows you to capture a lot more objects into the frame. It not only significantly reduces digital noise, but also significantly improves color rendition. This module supports HDR mode, and also received the latest algorithms for improving self-portraits.

The main camera manages to make high-quality photos using macro photography. When the image is enlarged, artifacts appear, but in minimal quantities. A photo with a blur look really nice.


Nova 3e stands out thanks to excellent cameras, an impressive glossy casing and a fashionable design with no extra frames. This device is also interesting because of the presence of a bright display with a ratio of 19: 9. Package: phone, Type-C cable, power adapter, SIM tray clip, headphones and documentation.
