The Huawei Nova 6 series is here. And one of the most important news about it? One of the models’ selfie camera garnered the highest score from DxOMark.

Specifically, the Huawei Nova 6 5G received an overall score of 100 from the image-quality rating site, beating the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Plus 5G by a single point. For pictures, it got a 105 mark, two points higher than that of the Samsung flagship. When it comes to videos, the handset scored 93, same as the Galaxy Note 10 Plus 5G’s.

Both the Huawei Nova 6 5G and Nova 6 have a 32-megapixel primary selfie shooter and an 8-megapixel ultra-wide sensor with a 105-degree field of view. But the 5G model outdoes the standard Nova 6 by having a PDAF [phase-detect auto focus] in place of the latter’s fixed focus.

DxOMark commended the Huawei Nova 6 5G’s HDR processing for proper exposure in most conditions. The site also mentioned the dual front camera’s wide dynamic range, excellent colors, and accurate white balance.

On top of getting record-breaking cameras, though, there’s more to the Huawei Nova 6 series, so let’s dive in.

Huawei Nova 6 5G and Nova 6

The Huawei Nova 6 5G and Nova 6 share a lot of specifications, except for the former getting 5G connectivity, a slightly bigger battery, and an extra storage option.

As we mentioned, both phones get dual front-facing cameras, which are housed in a punch-hole cutout at the top-left corner of the 6.57-inch FHD+ AMOLED display. And as shared in the teasers, the fingerprint sensor is on the side-mounted power button.

Behind them is a triple camera setup composed of a 40-megapixel main shooter, an 8-megapixel telephoto lens with optical image stabilization, and an 8-megapixel ultra-wide sensor.

The Kirin 990 processor powers both the Huawei Nova 6 5G and Nova 6 variants, with the former getting a Balong 5000 5G modem. The two devices also have 8GB of RAM and at least 128GB of internal storage, with the 5G model getting a 256GB storage option. Both run EMUI 10 based on Android 10 right out of the box.

The Nova 6 5G variant has a slightly bigger battery capacity at 4,200mAh as compared to the Nova 6’s 4,100mAh one. But both support 40-watt SuperCharge technology.

So, how much are the smartphones? In China, Huawei prices the Nova 6 5G at ¥3,799 (around P27,427 or $540) for the 8GB/128GB configuration and ¥4,199 (P30,315 or $596) for the 8GB/256GB version.
