There’s no doubt now that the Huawei Nova 5 is coming. The official Huawei account on China’s social media platform Weibo has already posted this video teasing the smartphone.
(Update, June 11: Launch date confirmed! See Huawei Nova 5 series launch set for June 21.)
While we don’t have the exact launch date of the Nova 5 just yet, all reports that have come out recently said the device will be unveiled end of June. Does this mean that the announcement will be at MWC Shanghai, which is happening from the 26th to the 28th? And will the handset be launched alongside the Nova 5i? We’ll probably know more in a few days.
The Huawei Nova 5 already appeared on the site of Chinese certification authority TENAA last month. Thing is, the agency hasn’t listed any specs until now. Word has it, though, that the phone will be powered by Kirin 980, the same chip that’s inside the Huawei P30, P30 Pro, Mate 20, Mate 20 Pro, Mate 20 X, and Mate X.
A leaked screen protector doesn’t show any notch, so the selfie camera — supposedly a 25-megapixel shooter — could probably be a pop-up, such as those on the Vivo V15 and V15 Pro and the OPPO F11 Pro, or a flip one, like what’s on the ASUS ZenFone 6 and the Samsung Galaxy A80.
According to the rumor mill, the display is AMOLED and measures 6.39 inches; the non-removable battery is rated at 4,200mAh and has support for 44W fast charging; and one of the four rear sensors is a Sony IMX586 48-megapixel unit.
We will likely hear more about the Huawei Nova 5 in the coming days, so keep your eyes peeled on this site for updates.
