Huawei has launched its newest midrange phones under the Nova 11 series in China. It consists of three models: the regular Nova 11, the Nova 11 Pro, and the high-end Nova 11 Ultra, all of which come with a striking green color scheme. Let’s get into the detailed specifics of the Huawei Nova 11 series (Nova 11, 11 Pro, 11 Ultra), along with its expected price in Nepal.

Huawei Nova 11 Series Overview:

Huawei Nova 11

First off, let’s talk about the vanilla Nova 11. It’s the least expensive model in the lineup but still has a 6.7-inch 10-bit AMOLED screen with a 120Hz refresh rate. The phone is also lightweight and slim, measuring 6.8mm thick and weighing only 168 grams. And you also get a premium glass sandwich build.

But unfortunately, there’s no extra hardened-glass protection here. Although Huawei has used its in-house Kunlun glass protection on display, it’s surprisingly an optional add-on that costs an extra CNY 200 (roughly NPR 4,400).Huawei Nova 11 Design and Display

Camera-wise, there’s an array of three sensors on the back consisting of a 50MP sensor and an 8MP ultrawide lens. On the front, there’s a single 60MP selfie camera. The phone is touted to shoot 4K@30fps videos from both the front and rear cameras.

Under the hood, it is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G processor based on 6nm fabrication technology. Even though the 778G supports a 5G modem, the Nova 11 is limited to LTE cellular connectivity only.

Storage options include 128GB, 256GB, and 512GB, although the RAM capacity hasn’t been confirmed by the brand yet. The phone comes with the latest HarmonyOS 3 operating system from Huawei. Last but not least, there’s a 4500mAh battery powering everything everywhere all at once and it charges via a 66W adapter.

  • Huawei Nova 11 Pro and Ultra

    Continuing with the Nova 11 Pro and 11 Ultra, they both feature a curved glass front and leather back. They also have a similar dimension measuring 7.8mm in thickness and 188 grams in weight.

    Likewise, both smartphones are built around a large 6.78″ OLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate and a touch sampling rate of 300Hz. The Ultra variant comes with Kunlun Glass protection. But if you want the same protection for the Pro variant, you’ll need to pay extra, just like with the vanilla Nova 11.

    Moving on, the rear camera configuration includes a 50MP primary lens which can toggle between f/1.4 and f/4.0 aperture. Also, this is an RYYB sensor and has laser Auto Focus (AF) built-in.  Accompanying it is an 8MP ultrawide camera and a “ten-channel color temperature sensor”, which helps adjust colors the main and the wide lens.

    Even for selfies, you get two cameras on the front consisting of a 60MP primary and an 8MP portrait lens with 2x optical zoom. On the other hand, the performance, memory configuration, and OS of the smartphone are the same as the Nova 11. The same 4500mAh battery also fuels these smartphones, but you now get faster 100W charging support. 

    Although there are many similarities between the Nova 11 Pro and Ultra, the main difference is that the Ultra supports two-way satellite messaging via the Beidou constellation. This feature, of course, adds to the overall cost of the device.
