Huawei today announced its two new mid-range smartphones – Huawei Nova and Huawei Nova Plus. Both the phones will be available in three colour variants – Prestige Gold, Mystic Siler and Titanium Grey.
“Designed to bring new experiences to life with its incredible performance, stylish design and advanced camera features, the Huawei Nova and Huawei nova plus devices are the perfect fit for a generation that lives their life on a smartphone,” said Richard Yu, CEO Huaei consumer business group.
Looking at the images, the Huawei Nova looks a lot like last year’s Huawei designed Nexus 6P and comes with a 5 inch 1080p display. On the other hand, having the same resolution display but with a bigger size at 5.5 inches, Nova Plus resembles company’s Mate series.
Internally, both the phones have pretty similar specifications except some which are bumped up in the Plus variant. Both the phones are powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 chipset, 3GB of RAM and 32GB internal storage which unfortunately is not expandable. The front facing 8 megapixel camera with f/2.0 aperture is also there on both Nova and Nova Plus. While the Huawei Nova has 12 megapixel (f/2.2) rear facing camera with 1.25um larger pixel, the Nova Plus features a 16 megapixel primary camera with Optical Image Stabalisation.
Another area where the two phones differ is the battery with the Nova variant having 3020 mAh battery and Nova Plus having a larger 3340 mAh battery.
Both Huawei Nova and Nova Plus run on Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box with Emotion UI on top. Other than that, both also feature a new 3D fingerprint scanner at the back.
As far as the price goes, Huawei said that the Nova and Nova Plus will sell at â‚¬399 and â‚¬429 respectively starting from October 2016.
Apart from the new launches, the Chinese handset manufacturer also revealed a couple of new colour variant (Red and Blue) for the Huawei P9 which was launched earlier this year. The new colour variants will sell at â‚¬549.
