Huawei Nova 5 Gets TENAA Certified, to Come Loaded with Android OS
Huawei is rumored to launch the high-end Nova 5 smartphone in China. Apart from the leaks and rumors, there is no official confirmation from the company till date. Recently, two new Huawei smartphones with the model numbers SEA-AL10 and SEA-TL10 are spotted on the TENAA website. Both these devices are also certified by China’s 3C and will support up to 40W fast charging. Currently, only the premium flagship smartphones from Huawei are having 40W fast charging support. Even the Huaiwe P30 supports only up to 22.5W Huawei SuperCharge technology.
While the TENAA listing hasn’t revealed the first look or the specifications, it at least confirmed that the device runs on Android OS. Since the US companies are banned from doing any business with Huawei, Google pulled the Huawei’s Android license. The company is also rumored to introduce its own operating system called ARK OS in the second half of this year. Talking about the Huawei Nova 5, it is rumored to come with a punch-hole display.
The Huawei Nova 4 launched in December 2018 is the first Huawei smartphone to embrace the punch-hole design. Just like its predecessor, the upcoming Nova smartphone will also sport triple camera setup on the rear. In the camera department, the Nova 5 might come with the same 48MP triple camera setup and 25MP in-screen camera offered with the Nova 4. Under the hood, the device will most probably come powered by the flagship Kirin 980 SoC built on 7nm FinFET node.
The leaked case of the Nova 5 also confirmed the presence of 3.5mm audio jack. It will be running on Android 9.0 Pie based EMUI 9.0 out of the box. We expect the TENAA listing to soon get updated with device images and complete specifications. Stay tuned on Phone Radar for more details!
