Huawei has already confirmed to launch a new smartphone in the first week of June in China. As of now, the company hasn’t revealed any details about its upcoming smartphone. However, a new Huawei smartphone with the model number GLK-LX3 was listed on Antutu. It will be launched as Huawei Nova 5i in China. We also expect the company to launch the high-end Nova 5 alongside the Nova 5i. Based on the Antutu listing, the comes with Android 9.0 Pie based EMUI 9.0 out of the box.
It will be coming with a 5.84-inch waterdrop notch display with Full HD+ (2310 × 1080 pixels) resolution. Under the hood, the device will come powered by the older Kirin 710 octa-core processor clocked at 2.2GHz. It comes coupled with Mali-G51 GPU to look after the gaming performance of the device. The rumors also suggest the all-new Kirin 720 processor will be announced in the coming weeks. The Nova 5i with 4GB RAM and 64GB of internal storage has scored 131,715 on Antutu.
The rumors mention Nova 5i to come equipped with quad camera setup featuring 24MP + 16MP + 2MP + ToF 3D sensors. However, we think the Nova 5 might come with this setup but not the Kirin 710-powered Nova 5i. The device will be backed by a 3,900mAh non-removable battery. Earlier this week, the SEA-TL10 and SEA-AL10 smartphones are certified by China’s TENAA. Both these devices are also certified by China’s 3C and will support up to 40W fast charging.
These are expected to be launched as Nova 5 smartphones. Unlike the Nova 5i, the Nova 5 could come with high-end specifications. Under the hood, the device will most probably come powered by the flagship Kirin 980 SoC built on 7nm FinFET node. On the front, the Nova 5 smartphones will come with a punch-hole display with a 25MP front-facing camera for selfies. We will be knowing more details about these upcoming smartphones in the coming days. Stay tuned on Phone Radar for more details!
