“Huawei will be the world’s first company to have two 7nm mobile chipsets in its inventory”
Huawei is all set to introduce its latest Nova series smartphones at an event in China on June 21st. The company is expected to introduce at least three new Nova models including the Nova 5, Nova 5 Pro, and Nova 5i. Just a couple of days ahead of launch, the company’s head of smartphone division He Gang has revealed one of the Nova 5 series phones will utilise the brand’s new 7nm chipset. In addition, a few live images of the upcoming Nova 5 Pro have hit the interwebs as well, revealing the phone’s design.
Gang has announced that Huawei will unveil its second chipset to be manufactured utilising the 7nm fabrication process. While the executive hasn’t yet revealed the name of the processor, it is expected to be the rumoured Kirin 810. Notably, Huawei will be the first brand to have two 7nm process-based chipsets in its inventory. The current 7nm chipset from the phone maker is the Kirin 970, which is present on the vendor’s flagship products. While the executive hasn’t revealed which new Nova phone will have the Kirin 810 SoC, it is expected to be the Nova 5. The Nova 5 Pro is expected to be powered by the Kirin 980 chipset.
Talking about the live images of the Nova 5 Pro, the photos show that the phone will arrive with a waterdrop notch above the screen. The handset will have four cameras at the rear with one of them to be a 48MP sensor. The vertically-placed camera modules will be aided by an LED flash unit. The phone’s fingerprint sensor is expected to be placed below the screen.
The images also suggest that the device will be available in Phantom Blue (it is actually Violet) and Phantom Black (that’s green), which we have already seen on the Honor 20 Pro. We will have more official details in a couple of days, so in touch for regular updates.
