Huawei Nova 4 with a punch hole display is launching outside of China, first in Malaysia

Huawei’s sub-brand recently launched the Honor View 20 with the much-hyped punch hole display. Another big feature of the View 20 is the 48MP camera on the back. But before the View 20 was announced, Huawei launched the Nova 4 in China with a punch hole display and 48MP camera as well. The Huawei Nova 4 is now launching outside of China, starting with Malaysia.

Huawei Malaysia has sent out invites for a Nova 4 launch event on January 16th. There are actually two different versions of the phone in China. The 48MP model received most of the attention, but there is also a less expensive model with a 20MP primary camera. We don’t know if both models will be available in Malaysia.
