The series will include at least two models – the basic Nova 10 and the more powerful Nova 10 Pro. Judging by the published teaser, the devices will use the proprietary operating system HarmonyOS. The day before, renders of the older of the two devices were available publicly. Now there are additional images confirming the design and design features of the smartphone.
For Nova 10 Pro, there is a display that folds onto the sides of the case. In the upper left corner of the screen, there is an oblong hole for a dual selfie camera. The panel size will allegedly be 6.7 inches diagonally, the refresh rate is 120 Hz. The triple rear camera will get a 50-megapixel main sensor.

Chinese sources say that the launch of the operating system Harmony OS 3.0 will take place in July this year. The first smartphone running Harmony OS 3.0 will be Huawei Mate 50. It will also be available in July.
At the beginning of the year, there were reports that the Huawei Mate 50 series will be running on the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC, but will not receive a 5G modem due to ongoing US sanctions. The Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 platform is already on the market.
Huawei Mate 50 cameras will also improve in comparison with the Huawei P50 series, but we do not expect revolutionary changes. The Huawei Mate 50 cameras will be on par with other flagships coming out this year.
Last year, Huawei announced HarmonyOS 3.0 Developer Previews to streamline the OS build process, attract developers, and roll out HarmonyOS 3.0 to even more devices.
Also, HarmonyOS already has over 2,000 partners who support the OS and develop apps.
