On June 21, Huawei nova 5, nova 5i, and nova 5 Pro were released in Wuhan, China. The nova 5 Pro officially hit the market yesterday (June 28). As for nova 5, it will arrive on the market on July 20. According to the official introduction, the nova 5 series combines glare, gradation, and diamond cut surface to form a visual art of light and space, using 3D carved texture technology to create a magical light and shadow effect. Today, Huawei Weibo official said that the Huawei’s nova 5 Pro was on sale for only two hours. This is a good result for Huawei especially considering the company’s recent issues with the US.
The nova 5 Pro and nova 5 both use a 6.39-inch pearl screen with a resolution of 2340 × 1080. On the front, it has a 32MP camera coupled with a 48MP + 16MP super wide angle + 2MP + 2MP depth of field quad rear camera. The battery capacity is 3500 mAh.
The biggest difference between the two is that the nova 5 Pro is powered by the Kirin 980 processor while the nova 5 is powered by the Kirin 810 processor. It is worth mentioning that Kirin 810 is Huawei’s second mobile phone chip based on 7nm process technology and Huawei is, therefore, the only manufacturer with two 7nm mobile phone chips.
