With the recent launch of the Huawei Nova 4, Huawei has taken the opportunity to flex their image processing muscles that come with the phone and the EMUI 9.0 OS. With its triple rear camera system - 20MP + 16MP ultra-wide + 2MP depth sensor, Huawei has made some innovative features to make it truly shine.

The first being the video ringtones for incoming calls that allows you to use a favorite video as aringtone - celebrity videos, comedies, dance-offs. The possibilities are virtually endless. If you want it to be more personalised, just record your own! Because nothing tells you that your friends or loved ones are calling you more than with a video telling you so.

Next is the AI-assisted video editing which does more than a simple process of refinement, streamlining, and deletion. It also incorporates the analysis and recognition of video characters, as well as cross-referencing against other images in your Gallery. This technology is called “character association”, effective in recognizing the central characters in each video and distinguishing them from passers-by that photobomb your shots. The processing of such a huge volume of images is achieved with a powerful NPU that accelerates mobile computing.


To go further with their beautifying features, Huawei made it possible to for you to have that feature turned on while you’re on WeChat video calls. Soon, caking on makeup will be a thing of the past. You can adjust the Beauty degree during a call or even blur the background.

Along with EMUI 9.0, there is now comes with an EIS (electric image stabilization) algorithm, which uses a gyroscope to detect the shaking of the phone, and then dynamically adjusts the camera’s ISO, shutter speed, or software to perform correction. EIS is a type of algorithmic operation that avoids blurring by performing image compensation, correcting hand-held shaking while recording video, and provides additional stability when tracking moving objects.

Slomo videos have been around for quite a bit for smartphones but the Huawei Nova 4’s newly-upgraded super slow-motion features video recording at 480 frames per second, then plays them back in 1/16 the speed.

Stay tuned for out full review of the Huawei Nova 4.
