Huawei has a new entry-level smartphone offering for everyone. Meet the brand new Huawei Nova 5T.

The Huawei Nova 5T is basically the global version of the Honor 20 from a few months back. It highlights a quad-camera setup on the back that consists of a 48-megapixel primary shooter. There’s also the 16-megapixel ultra-wide, and two 2-megapixel sensors used for macro shots and depth-sensing, respectively.


Another big thing about the Nova 5T is its Kirin 980 processor. That’s the same processor found on other Huawei flagships like the P30 Pro. The processor is paired with up to 8GB of RAM, 128GB of storage, and GPU Turbo 3.0 for the best possible gaming experience.

On the front, we have the 6.26-inch FHD+ IPS display, with a punch-hole on the top left that elegantly positions its 32-megapixel selfie camera.


The back panel is clean, with the three cameras and the LED flash housed in a vertical orientation, and the macro camera sitting beside the circle.

It’s available in Black, Crush Blue, and a Midsummer Purple option with the Nova branding printed everywhere.


Despite the lack of an in-display fingerprint scanner, Huawei managed to make the back panel looking clean by mounting the biometric sensor on the side.
