Huawei has officially launched the Nova 5T in Nepal. It is a device targetted at the upper midrange market segment. The phone comes with decent camera setup and a flagship-grade Kirin 980 chipset. Let’s see out if it can battle against the likes of Redmi K20 Pro in its price range.

Huawei Nova 5T Overview


Since the camera is the major highlight of the phone, let’s talk about it first. The phone embraces a quad-camera setup on the back. The camera quadruplet comprises of a 48MP main camera, which uses a Sony sensor and an f/1.8 lens. A 16MP ultra-wide-angle lens, a 2MP macro lens, and a 2MP depth sensor complete the camera module. The dynamic range of the picture is good for the price range. Ultra-wide angle shots are also average. The macro lens is a gimmick at its best as it can’t capture many details. On the front rests a 32MP selfie shooter right under the punch-hole cutout. The selfies come out very well on this device.

Performance and Memory

Performance-wise, you get the HiSilicon Kirin 980 chipset, which is the flagship SoC in Huawei’s arsenal and which we have seen in a much expensive P30 Pro. The chipset can perform the everyday tasks fluidly and handles just fine. But rivals like K20 Pro come with Snapdragon 855 which is more powerful and handier for gamers.

The performance is further complemented by 8GB of RAM. The phone also ships with GPU Turbo 3.0 software, which promises smoother gameplay even while playing high-end and demanding games. It comes with a Performance mode that contributes to smoother gameplay but at the expense of battery life.

Talking about the storage, Huawei Nova 5T comes aboard with 128GB of onboard memory. However, you won’t get an option to expand the storage any further as the phone lacks an SD card slot.

On to the display front, Huawei Nova 5T features a 6.26-inch IPS panel with Full-HD resolution. Just like on the Galaxy M40, Vivo Z1 Pro, and the Samsung flagship devices, the Nova 5T also gets a tiny punch-hole cutout on the top of the display. Since there is no OLED panel, you won’t get the in-display fingerprint here. Awkwardly, Huawei managed to place the fingerprint scanner on the side. In addition, you also get the Face Unlock feature as well.

The power supply to the phone is provided by a 3750mAh battery. Huawei has also included 22.5-watt SuperCharge support with which the phone gains up to 50% of charge just in 24 minutes.
