The Huawei Nova 5 and Nova 5i are set for a launch soon. Leaks from a Chinese online retailer ‘Suning’ claims the phone will go official sometime by the end of this month. Putting the naming scheme aside, let’s look at these two upcoming mid-rangers and what they will potentially offer.
Huawei Nova 5 Leaks and Rumors
Browsing through the leaked spec sheet of the Nova 5, you can see the phone will offer a 6.39-inch AMOLED screen with an under display fingerprint scanner. Going by the leaked tempered glass and the cover, we assume there are no notches. It also shows room for a triple camera setup at the back.
The Nova 5 has received 3C certification in China for two variants, SEA-TL10 and SEA-AL10. Both of which (we can’t confirm they are Nova 5i and Nova 5, could just be two versions of the Nova 5) will come bundled with a 40W charger. A few other leaks suggest a 4,200mAh battery with 44W charging.
The device will be powered by the Kirin 980, the same chipset used on their flagship P30 and P30 Pro. The rear will feature the 48MP Sony IMX 586 sensor, while the front should get a 25MP camera. The leaked casing also shows room for a headphone jack on the bottom left and a slight display chin up front.
Pricing and Availability
While we have very little information on the Nova 5i, we can certainly assume both are going to be some stellar phones. With flagship grade specs, fast charging and a full view AMOLED display, the only questions here is the pricing. Since the Nova series of smartphones are basically brought at the midrange price, we can expect the same in the case of Nova 5 and Nove 5i. But to know about the exact price of these devices, we probably have to wait till its launch.
