Huawei officially announced the Nova 6 series comprising the Nova 6 5G, Nova 6 4G and Nova 6 SE earlier today. The models utilise the punch-hole selfie camera design that Huawei is gaining a growing reputation for using on its display, albeit on LCD panels. While the Nova 6 SE has a single punch-hole, the Nova 6 comes with a wider selfie punch-hole design which houses two sensors. We take a look at the Nova 6 design as captured in these hands-on pictures.
The front design has as its most prominent feature the dual selfie camera located at the top left corner of the display. The two sensors consist of a 32MP Sony IMX616 f/2.2 Autofocus camera paired with an 8MP 105° f/2.2 FF camera so you can take wide-angle selfies. The selfie camera is said to come with EIS, a portrait mode and a Super Night Scene mode. Huawei says it is the first phone to support 4K 30fps HD video recording with the selfie camera. Also, the selfie shooters are ranked by DxOMark as having the best selfie cameras.
The device utilises a 6.57-inch display with an FHD+ resolution of 2400 x 1080 pixels certified by TUV Rheinland. The bezels around the display are as thin as they can be making this one hell of an immersive screen.
The rear panel is made of glass and is curved on all angle which gives it not just some aesthetic value but makes the phone comfy to handle. The glass is coated using a dual-film dual-plating process with 14 nano-level coatings.
Still, on the rear panel, the Nova 6 5G packs a triple camera setup stacked vertically at the back. The camera setup consists of a 40MP RYYB Sony sensor with an f/1.7 aperture and a 1.2µm pixel size which allows for more light and an ISO of up to 204800. There is also an 8MP f/2.4 120° ultrawide angle camera and an 8MP f/2.4 telephoto camera with 30x ultra-long zoom, AF, and OIS. The phone has EIS and can record 4K HD videos.
The Nova6 also packs a side-mounted fingerprint sensor that doubles as the power button. The scanner/power button is located at the right side of the display alongside the volume rockers. The Kirin 990-powered flagship model also comes with a USB-C port which would deliver super-fast charging to the 4200mAh battery that is on-board the 5G version.
