Huawei is gearing up to release two new handsets in their nova range with the nova 5i and nova 5. The two midrangers are expected to come with different names according to the region they are sold in with the nova 5 pro replacing the nova 5 in China for example.
New leaks from Chinese online retailer Suning suggest the phones will launch at the end of this month and we are also treated to some new case and screen protector leaks. We can see that the nova 5 will have slim bezels with a slightly larger chin in the bottom. The case, on the other hand, shows the vertical camera alignment as well as a hole for the 3.5mm audio jack in the bottom left.
We also got an updated spec sheet for the nova 5. It will feature a 6.39-inch AMOLED screen with an UD fingerprint reader while the internals will rely on the flagship Kirin 980 chipset. The main camera is expected to feature a 48MP sensor. Battery capacity should be 4,200 mAh with blazing fast 44W charging support.
Overall, the two phones are shaping up to quite interesting, but we’ll have to wait and see how Huawei decides to price them.
