In December 2018, Huawei launched the mid-range Nova 4 smartphone in China. It is the first-ever smartphone from Huawei to come with a punch-hole display. A couple of months back, the company also launched the affordable Nova 4e with a waterdrop notch display. Now, the cases of the upcoming Huawei Nova 5 are leaked online. However, we don’t think the company will launch the successor to Nova 4 anytime soon.
Looking at the cases, we can confirm the Nova 5 to sport triple camera setup on the rear. Even the Nova 4 and Nova 4e also came with triple rear cameras. Since there is no cutout for the pop-up camera on the top, we expect the Huawei Nova 5 to sport the same punch-hole display as seen on its predecessor. On the top edge, we can only spot the 3.5mm audio jack and a secondary noise-canceling microphone. The bottom of the case features cutouts for the charging port, speaker, and a primary microphone.
While the Nova 4 came powered by the Kirin 970 SoC, the upcoming Nova 5 could come with the Kirin 980 SoC. By the time the Nova 5 launches, the company might introduce the rumored Kirin 985 mobile processor for its upcoming flagship smartphones. It should be running on the latest Android 9.0 Pie based EMUI 9.0 out of the box. Looking at the current trend, we can also expect the Nova 5 to come in gradient color options.
Since the new flagship smartphones will continue to launch with the quad camera setup, the triple camera setup might become a standard feature for their mid-range devices. Earlier this month, the company has launched the Huawei P Smart Z as its first-ever smartphone with a pop-up selfie camera. However, it came with Kirin 710F octa-core processor and dual rear cameras. Based on the leaks, the company will launch the same Huawei P Smart Z as Huawei Y9 Prime 2019 in China with triple rear cameras.
It comes with a 6.59-inch notch-less display with Full HD+ (2340 x 1080 pixels) resolution and 19.5:9 aspect ratio. In Europe, the company launched the device with 4GB RAM and 64GB of internal storage. On the top, there is a 16MP pop-up camera with f/2.2 aperture for capturing selfies. It is backed by a 4,000mAh non-removable battery that only supports 10W (5V/2A) power input. Stay tuned on Phone Radar for more details!
