A new member in Huawei Nova Series; Huawei Nova 4

Following its global launch in December, HUAWEI today launched the new HUAWEI Nova 4 to Malaysian consumers. Developed through a better understanding of consumer needs and current industry trends, the HUAWEI Nova 4 brings the innovative Punch FullView Display experience for the first time to Malaysian consumers, together with cutting-edge premium design and AI technology.

Running on Kirin 970 and 8GB RAM, the HUAWEI Nova 4 delivers the ultimate user experience on everything from productivity apps to high-octane action games. Shipped with EMUI 9.0, it allows users to access work and entertainment apps easily with a few simple taps and swipes.

“The HUAWEI Nova Series has always been about the pursuit of beauty and is designed to cater to the younger crowd who are fond of participating in trendy lifestyles.  Equipped with an improved photography experience and revolutionary AI technology, the HUAWEI Nova 4 embodies who our millennial consumes are,” said Luke Au, Product Marketing Director, HUAWEI Malaysia.

Echoing this sentiment, Hannah Delisha, HUAWEI Nova ambassador said, “As a part of the HUAWEI Nova family, it is very interesting to see how the Series has evolved over the years. With the HUAWEI Nova 4 and its AI-supported features such as Triple AI Camera, AI Smart Video Editing and AI Beautification, the smartphone continues to fit into my lifestyle with ease as I commute between photoshoots, drama sets and events. It has definitely become my new best friend.”

Level Up Your Photography Skills
The HUAWEI Nova 4 is equipped with the industry’s smallest 25MP under-display front camera, measuring 3.05mm in diameter, as well as a Triple AI Camera on the rear, featuring a high resolution 20MP primary camera, a 16MP ultra wide angle camera and a 2MP bokeh lens.

Following the HUAWEI P20 Pro and HUAWEI Mate 20 Series, the HUAWEI Nova 4 is HUAWEI’s first Nova product to feature a Triple AI Camera and ultra wide angle lens. This smartphone features a triple-camera module consisting of a 20MP primary camera and 2MP secondary camera, complemented with a 16MP camera augmented with ultra wide angle lens. The primary lens captures images with a high-end sensor whose pixel size is 1.0µm with better performance to capture the light. It also supports hardware-level background bokeh effect to highlight the subject, benefitted by the 2MP lens.

Equipped with an ultra wide angle lens, the 16MP camera supports a 117-degree field of view. After adjusting for distortion, its performance is equivalent to a 103-degree 17mm wide angle lens, capturing 2.4 times more information compared to 78-degree wide angle lens. Together, the 20MP high resolution camera and 16MP ultra wide angle lens makes the HUAWEI Nova 4 the perfect device for capturing endless plains or sprawling metropolis that stretch towards the horizon.

The Future of Displays: Punch FullView Display
Since the unveiling of the very first HUAWEI Nova Series, HUAWEI has never stopped in its pursuit of beauty. The HUAWEI Nova 4 sports a new generation 6.4-inch Punch FullView display – the first ever to be sold in Malaysia. A culmination of years of experience in premium design, craftsmanship and high technology, the Punch FullView display takes bezel-less displays to new heights with a minimalist blind hole opening for the 25MP camera. This design allows HUAWEI to eliminate the notch and achieve a screen-to-TP ratio of 91.8 percent, which makes for a truly natural and stunning viewing experience.

The 25MP front camera under the Punch FullView display is the industry’s smallest camera, measuring at only 3.05mm – 20 percent smaller than the current industry standard. The opening on the display is a blind hole, meaning the screen is not completely punched through. From assembly (sub-0.1mm margin of error) to adhesive application, the precise manufacturing processes minimise the light leakage from the edges of the blind hole. Additionally, HUAWEI optimised the light transmittance performance of the blind hole so it is on par to a through hole.

Artificial Intelligence Bolsters Video Editing and Gaming Support
The new HUAWEI Nova 4 fully utilises the hardware processing power and AI computation capacity of Kirin 970’s NPU to deliver a powerful and smart video editing experience. After taking a video with the HUAWEI Nova 4, users can activate the automatic footage analysis with one tap. This innovative feature leverages the smart aesthetics scoring engine. Trained with 60,000 basic models as well as one million facial models generated through facial recognition, the feature can automatically process
and edit footage.

Apart from that, the HUAWEI  Nova 4 also supports a new generation of GPU Turbo. This technology greatly enhances the graphics processing efficiency of smartphones by optimising the clock speed and power consumption of the chipset, allowing the HUAWEI Nova 4 to deliver an accelerated, top framerate experience even when running premium mobile games.

Furthermore, the GPU Turbo will serve as the foundation augmenting the core features of HUAWEI devices. It not only allows EMUI and application-layer graphics to run smoother, and supports nascent technologies such as AR and VR – it also endows the HUAWEI Nova 4 with limitless potential.

Pricing and Availability
Made for the youth, the HUAWEI Nova 4 is equipped with 128GB ROM and over-a-day 3,750mAh battery life. It is available in two fashionable colorways in Malaysia:

  • Crush Blue evokes a sense of mystery with a tinge of romance
  • Black exudes understated class.

Made available in Malaysia starting on 14th February 2019, the HUAWEI Nova 4 is retailing at a price of RM1,899.00 and can be purchased at all HUAWEI Experience Stores, display zones, authorised dealers and major telco companies.

Nova Academy
Also present at the launch event was Datuk Ahmad Izham Omar, CEO of Primeworks Studios, who announced a collaboration between HUAWEI, Primeworks Studios, and Universiti Teknologi Mara (UiTM) on the Nova Academy. “Malaysia has an abundance of hidden gems and talented people especially in the entertainment industry, however, we don’t always get to tap onto their full potential.

The Nova Academy is an initiative to provide the right platform for our talents to get the education and in-depth training they need through a mentorship programme. I look forward to this exciting collaboration,” he said.

With a very competitive 20MP-strong rear camera and our latest GPU Turbo technology embedded into the device, honor 8X manages to cover all the bases of a day-to-day usage for any smartphone user, no matter the gender, profession, hobbies and interests,” said George Zhao Zhiwei, Head of honor Malaysia.

In conjunction with the launch of honor 8X, the brand also took the opportunity to introduce a special collaboration with Suriana Welfare Society Malaysia, a non-government, not-for-profit child protection organization which promotes and protects the rights of children. The collaboration aims to empower and inspire the next generation to live the moment and achieve their dreams. This initiative is driven through collaborative art with the theme “The Braves”.

To live up to our brand spirit and the tagline ‘Beyond Limits’, we want to co-create value and empower the youth through this meaningful collaboration. Together with Suriana, we urge members of the public join us in empowering the next generation to take their destinies into their own hands,” said Zhao.

More Screen Space, Better View

For the first time ever, the honor 8X comes with:

  • a seamless HD FullView screen, with advanced chip-on-film (COF) technology and special antenna design
  • With only 4.25 mm of the bottom border size, the honor 8X simply provides more screen space for the user to enjoy every bit of graphic that is projected from the device.

VIVO V11 AI Offers Perfect Shots with Immersive Design

This new AI-powered addition to the popular V series comes with an AI camera that helps users capture the picture-perfect moment in any scenario, as well as also AI services to enable smarter and simpler living.

hdr

Vivo’s V11:

  • features key design breakthroughs, with the new Halo FullView™ Display paired with Starry Night and Nebula fusion colors, all enclosed within a curved 3D body to provide a seamless and immersive user experience
  • the FIRST in the V series to incorporate In-Display Fingerprint Scanning Technology, continuing Vivo’s technology leadership in biometric security, while maintaining a sleek and stylish design.

“Innovating with consumers in mind is our priority. We are excited to introduce the AI-powered V11 to create a more intuitive and personal mobile experience for our users. With that in mind, we have made the perfect shot much easier to take with our AI Camera, added smarter AI services, and introduced our industry-leading In-Display Fingerprint Scanning Technology to the V series for the first time. We will strive to bring trend-setting innovations and the best experience to more consumers around the world.” said Mike Xu, Chief Executive Officer of Vivo Malaysia.

V11’s AI Camera Creates Perfect Photos with Ease

The V11 continues Vivo’s pursuit of the perfect shot. Following the success of the V9 earlier this year, Vivo has stepped up its development of AI to answer the consumer demand for more powerful photography features which adapt to any scenario.

  • V11 features a 12MP + 5MP dual rear camera combination with a large f/1.8 aperture and 1.28μm pixels, as well as a 25MP front camera
  • The 12MP rear camera boasts Dual Pixel Sensors with 24 million photosensitive units for higher light sensitivity and DSLR-standard Dual-Pixel Autofocus technology that can lock focus in just 0.03 seconds
  • V11’s AI Backlight HDR and AI Low Light Mode use AI algorithms to capture multiple frames for greater detail, and combine them to create perfectly exposed photos, even for difficult lighting environments such as sunsets
  • AI Scene Recognition, which identifies different objects, elements and scenes, and applies specially customized enhancements to make your photos really “pop”.

For perfect selfies anywhere anytime, V11 introduces all-new AI Face Shaping technology, with an AI face-modelling algorithm that adds individual treatments to your facial features, creating beautiful yet natural selfies. The improved AI Selfie Lighting feature also offers more lighting effects with AI algorithms that understand how the user’s face interacts three-dimensionally with light. On top of that, AI Portrait Framing makes framing the perfect shot easier than ever, by using artificial intelligence to guide you. It prompts you on how to hold your phone in the optimal position, effortlessly producing perfectly framed portrait shots every time.

Smarter Experience, More Powerful Performance

Beyond photography, the V11 expands the AI mobile experience across the board with Vivo’s AI assistant Jovi, with features like:

Jovi Smart Scene-makes everyday life easier by recognizing user scenarios and acting accordingly, including checking the weather and providing real time information.

Google Lens-backed by advanced deep-learning algorithms, lets users search for what they see.

Google Assistant-helps with everyday situations like map navigation, online shopping, travel arrangements, music, video and even social media

Supporting these incredible AI features, V11 is powered by the Snapdragon 660AIE processor with 6GB RAM + 128 ROM, ensuring ultra-smooth performance. The latest Funtouch OS 4.5 (based on Android 8.1) and Vivo’s Jovi AI Engine also work together to allocate CPU and memory resources efficiently to handle multiple complex operations.

Futuristic Immersive Design with the V series’ first In-Display Fingerprint Scanning Technology

The V11 features a 19.5:9 aspect ratio, 6.41-inch Super AMOLED Halo FullView™ Display with a 91.27% screen-to-body ratio. The ultra-thin 1.76mm side bezels, paired with the 3D curved body design blends the edges of the phone into the display, creating an immersive viewing experience that fits perfectly in your hand.

V11 is the first model in the V series to incorporate In-Display Fingerprint Scanning Technology, which eliminates the visible fingerprint pad to create a seamless design from front to back. The technology first debuted in CES earlier this year and has effectively created bigger screens without compromising on security options. Incorporating this cutting-edge technology in V11 is the latest testament to Vivo’s efforts to solve consumer pain points.

The accuracy of Face Access has also been enhanced using infrared light, which now accurately scans 1,024 facial feature points to unlock instantly, even in the dark.

Vivo has created two trendsetting fusion colors inspired by the exciting mysteries of the universe – Starry Night and Nebula. Starry Night’s blend of black and blue and Nubula’s stunning blue and purple hues invoke glistening stars in distant galaxies that heightens the futuristic design of V11.

Introducing Lu Han – Vivo’s New Brand Ambassador

In its continuous efforts to connect and engage with its customers, Vivo is adding popular singer and actor Lu Han to its star-studded line-up of brand ambassadors. Lu, also known as Luhan, was a member of the South Korean-Chinese boy group EXO and EXO-M and the lead actor for the popular Chinese television series ‘Fighter of the Destiny’. He will be gracing most of Vivo’s marketing and communication collaterals, and engaging Vivo customers and fans via online initiatives alongside Janna Nick, Alvin Chong and Joyce Chu.

He added that from this year onwards, the #MYCYBERSALE event will be held annually between the National Day and Malaysia Day for consumers to take advantage of the attractive deals and rock-bottom prices, offered by the merchants during these memorable national celebrations.

Datuk Yasmin Mahmood, Chief Executive Officer of Malaysia Digital Economy Corporation (MDEC), commended the efforts by PIKOM in taking on the mantle of organising the campaign for the second year running.

“Initiated by MDEC in 2014, we are pleased to continue to support #MYCYBERSALE, which is helping more local SMEs take their rightful place in the burgeoning eCommerce arena and place Malaysia as a regional eCommerce powerhouse.
