Huawei nova 5, nova 5 Pro and nova 5i Announced

Huawei unveiled many smartphones today in China. And the major highlights of the announcements were the launch of the next lineup in the nova series of smartphones, the Huawei nova 5 Pro (featuring the powerful Kirin 980), Huawei nova 5 (equipped with the new Kirin 810), and Huawei nova 5i.

The nova 5 is the first smartphone to feature Huawei’s newly released Kirin 810 chip. Its launch, as a matter of fact, is scheduled for mid-July because producing the chip requires more time. The Kirin 810 processor comes with 2 Cortex-A76 powerful cores that are clocked at 2.27GHz, 6 efficient Cortex-A55 cores running at 1.88GHz, in addition to a Mali-G52 MP6 GPU. The device has only one memory option (8/128 GB), and its costs will start from CNY2,999 ($435/€385) when released.

The Huawei nova 5 Pro is doubtless the star of the smartphone family, sporting an OLED panel, vivid colors as well as an under-display fingerprint scanner. Its display is 6.39 inches in diagonal and has Full HD+ resolution & a waterdrop notch for the 32 MP front-facing selfie shooter.

The flagship Kirin 980 chipset will power the smartphone, and it will come with 8GB of RAM and built-in storage of 128GB/256GB. Pre-orders for the mobile device are already available at, and shipping is scheduled for June 28. Its prices will start from CNY2,999 ($435/€385) for the model with 8/128GB. The cost of the 8/256 GB variant is CNY3,399 ($500/€440), while the fancier version (Huawei nova 5 Pro Limited Edition) will set you back by CNY3,799 ($550/€490).

This device comes with Kirin 710 chipset, which is a decidedly less attractive chipset than the first 2. But it has an outstanding build with its punch hole camera design. The fingerprint scanner is rear-mounted and is next to the 4 cameras, which are 24 MP primary plus 8 MP wide-angle plus 2 MP depth sensor as well as 2 MP macro lens. The memory options for this phone are 6/128GB or 8/128GB.

It will be released in Black, Amber Red, and Sea Blue colors. The device will go for either CNY1,999 ($290/€260) or CNY2,199 ($320/€280), depending on the variant you choose, and shipping will start 7 days from now.
