There’s no word yet on the local release of the Huawei Nova 7 Pro. In any case, the Nova 7 5G shares the stage with its Pro sibling as the first device from the company with the latest HiSilicon Kirin 985 chipset under the hood.
The Kirin 985 shares some similarities with the Kirin 820 in the Nova 7 SE, including a CPU architecture with one Cortex-A76 prime core and three big (also Cortex-A76) and four small (Cortex-A55) cores. It is integrated with Mali-G77 graphics with Kirin Gaming+ 2.0 technology for faster graphics performance.
On the connectivity front, the SoC supports standard 2G, 3G, and 4G networks as well as dual-mode 5G (non-standalone/standalone). Huawei says the Kirin 985 can get a theoretical maximum download speed of 1.2Gbps and upload of 173Mbps. It also features 5G anti-jamming, 5G low-latency, 5G energy-efficient, and 5G high-speed performance features.
As for the other specs, the Huawei Nova 7 5G has a 6.53-inch AMOLED screen with a punch hole for the 32-megapixel selfie camera. It also features four cameras at the back with a 64-megapixel main sensor and a telephoto lens capable of up to 20x zoom.
