Huawei has unveiled a new smartphone, the Huawei Nova. Just from the name, we can think of it as a female-oriented smartphone. However, the design of this product shows us the cool business style as always. Other aspects, I have to say, is that the nova series and the G series overlap in price and configuration. What do you think of this new product? Let me tell you something else in this article.
Designs and Shows
It has a 5.0-inch FHD screen with a resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels. The front end design is similar to most models on the market today. For optimal strength, the back shell is made of aviation-resistant aluminum-magnesium alloy. In addition, it has an ultra-slim industrial design complete with a subtly curved section of 2.5D glass, which joins the rounded outer edges of the phone to provide a perfect fit in your hand. It is worth mentioning that the nova display is configured with the Blu-ray filter and supports ultra dark mode.
In terms of phone accessories, the design of the headphones is similar to that of the airPods. And it’s configured with a 10W maximum output power from the charger with a dedicated USB-C port.
Nova comes with an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor running at 2.0GHz in conjunction with a Qualcomm Adreno 506 GPU. Using the recent “Onmyouji” hot hand tour as a test, the running speed is a bit slow. And it can only support the smooth quality of the game. The designer said that this low-power processor is for the device to have a longer life.
The 3020 mAh large capacity battery configuration is the highlight of the nova, supporting long use even when playing big games. Except for that, it adopts dual cameras including 8MP front camera and 12MP rear camera with flash light. Especially, the Nova camera comes with the filter effect with nine shooting styles, which can meet most of the shooting needs of the scene.
Personal use experience
I like the system’s built-in pedometer, which is placed in a conspicuous place to remind those who need to exercise to maintain a healthy body if they must meet current walking mileage requirements. When you unlock the screen, you can see this pedometer, you don’t need to enter the software to see it.
In phone use, the personal favorite is the music player software, which has a refreshing interface. And the content is also very rich. In addition, the beloved lossless music is also convenient to buy.
