Huawei has introduced two smartphones from its latest Nova 10 series in China. The Nova 10 and 10 Pro are the successors of the Nova 9 series. Let’s get into the specs, features, availability, and expected price of the Huawei Nova 10, and Nova 10 Pro in Nepal.

Huawei Nova 10, Nova 10 Pro Overview:

Design and Display

The Nova 10 series borrows design elements from its predecessor. The smartphones retain a curved body design and a pill-shaped camera module on the rear. To differentiate, Huawei has highlighted the ring surrounding the camera module with a yellow accent.

On the front, both devices boast an OLED display with a refresh rate of 120Hz and a touch sampling rate of 300Hz. They differ in terms of display size and resolution though, with the 10 Pro sporting a slightly bigger 6.78-inch screen with 2652 x 1200 pixel resolution compared to the vanilla model’s 6.67-inch panel with 2400 x 1080 pixel count.

Performance

These smartphones are powered by the Snapdragon 778G chipset. It’s a year-old processor, but it still holds ground and offers a good blend of performance and efficiency. In fact, the much-hyped Nothing Phone (1) s debuting with the same SoC too. 

For memory, you get up to 12GB of RAM and up to 256GB of storage. As expected, the handset boots on the company’s own Harmony OS 2.0. 

Camera

Huawei Nova 10 Pro Cameras

Both phones in the Nova 10 Series have the same triple camera setup on the back. This includes a 50MP main sensor, an 8MP ultrawide sensor, and a 2MP macro sensor. However, the camera system changes for selfies, with the Nova 10 Pro gaining a dual-camera setup with a 60MP main and an 8MP portrait lens. In contrast, the standard model has a single 60MP selfie camera.

Rest of the specs

Other things that are different between these two devices are battery capacity and charging speed. The 10 Pro comes with a 4500mAh battery that supports faster 100W charging. The Nova 10, on the other hand, has a 4000mAh battery with 66W fast charging support.

Regardless, both of them utilizes in-display fingerprint sensor for biometrics. Likewise, the connectivity option includes WiFi 6, Bluetooth 5.0, and USB Type-C.
