First up from Huawei is the Nova which, as many will notice immediately, shares a similar design as the Nexus 6P. There are a few key changes with the Nova, though. That includes a smaller 5-inch 1080p HD display, down from the Nexus 6P’s 5.7-inch display. Under the Nova’s hood, there’s an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor along with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of built-in storage. The Nova is running Android 6.0 Marshmallow underneath Huawei’s proprietary EMUI 4.1 UI.
The Huawei Nova also features a battery measured in at 3020mAh, and there’s a microSD card slot for expandable storage. There’s a fingerprint sensor on the back and a USB Type-C port on the bottom. Finally, there’s a 12-megapixel camera on the back, which can record 4K video, and there’s an 8-megapixel front-facing camera on the other side.
The other new addition is the Nova Plus, which offers a bigger screen than the Nova. The Nova Plus’s display measures in at 5.5 inches, and it’s a 1080p HD panel. Another key difference is the 16MP camera on the back (there’s still an 8MP front-facing camera). The Nova Plus still features 3GB of RAM and 32GB of built-in storage, as well as a microSD card slot for expandable storage. It’s running Android 6.0 under EMUI 4.1, there’s a fingerprint sensor on the back, USB Type-C, and the same octa-core Snapdragon 625 processor.
Huawei has confirmed that both handsets will launch in October, and they’ll be available in Titanium Grey, Prestige Gold, and Mystic Silver. The Nova will cost €399 (about $446), while the Nova Plus will retail for €429 (about $480).
