Not long before it made its official debut in Malaysia, the Huawei Nova 5T has made its way to the Philippines.

The Huawei Nova 5T is poised to be the next midrange-priced smartphone to beat. For under Php20k, you’re already getting a smartphone with a quad-camera setup on the back and a flagship processor.


This device brags a 48-megapixel Sony IMX 586 primary camera, a 16-megapixel ultra-wide shooter, and two 2-megapixel sensors for macro shots and depth sensing.

Under the hood, the Huawei Nova 5T is powered by a Kirin 980 processor with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. That’s the same chipset found on the flagship Huawei P30 Pro.
