Huawei’s Nova 5 and Nova 5i smartphones have been in the news for quite some time and at this point, we’ve already come across a fair amount of details. The Nova 5i was recently certified by TENAA revealing its key specifications, while the Nova had its screen protector and back case leaked online. With everything that’s been going on, one can hope the launch might be around the block. Now, putting an end to all the speculations, Huawei, in a teaser video on Weibo, confirmed the phone would be unveiled on June 21st in China.
While the promotional teaser doesn’t reveal any specifications, the TENAA listing suggests the Huawei Nova 5i would ship with a 6.4-inch full-HD+ IPS display, be powered by the HiSilicon Kirin 710 SoC. It could pack either 6GB or 8GB of RAM and 128GB internal storage that may not be user expandable. The Nova 5i boots Android 9.0 Pie with EMUi 9.0 out of the box. In terms of optics, the Nova 5i could feature quad-rear cameras at the back with 4MP primary shooter, an 8MP secondary snapper, a 2MP depth unit and a ToF sensor along with LED flash. For selfies and video chats, it is expected to have a 24MP shooter. The Nova 5i could pack a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor for biometric security, and a 3,900mAh battery could fuel the phone.
On the other hand, the top-end Nova 5 is said to sport a 6.39-inch AMOLED display and could be powered by the HiSilicon Kirin 980 SoC. The case renders hint the phone might have an in-display sensor for biometric and also rock a 3.5mm audio jack. A 4,200mAh battery with 40W fast charging support could fuel the smartphone. As for cameras, the Nova 5 is rumoured to feature a 48MP Sony IMX586 primary lens, a 12.3-megapixel secondary sensor, and a Sony IMX316 ToF sensor. On the front, the Nova 5 is claimed to feature a 25-megapixel Sony IMX576 snapper for selfies and video chats. We should know more details when the phones launch later this month.
