Huawei has today introduced the Android smartphone Nova 5T for the upper middle class. It's not somehow based on the Honor 20, but is a copy with just a new model name. This in turn has the advantage for buyers that all Google services are installed on the smartphone – but also Android 9 Pie.
Because the Honor 20 was completed in time for Huawei's export ban, it is not affected by the restrictions that prohibit US companies from exporting technology to China to Huawei without a separate approval. This includes the numerous services Google, which are therefore no longer to be found on the Mate 30 series presented in September.
The Huawei Nova 5T is due to be released on October 29th at the price of 429 Euro in the colors black, “Crush Blue” and “Midsummer Purple”. The operating system is Android 9 Pie with Google services and EMUI 9.1 installed. In the period from October 29 to November 10, there will be a purchase of a Nova 5T wireless headphones FreeBuds Lite worth 129 € for free.
A 1: 1 copy of the Honor 20
In terms of features, the Nova 5T is an unchanged Honor 20, whose recommended retail price since May is 499 euros. In the price comparison, the smartphone, however, is already to find for around 390 euros at well-known online retailers. Therefore, Huawei uses the Nova 5T in a direct comparison 70 euros cheaper.
Quad camera with ultra wide angle and macro
The Nova 5T is equipped with a 6.26 inch Full HD display, Kirin 980 processor, 6 GB RAM, 128 GB expandable memory and a 3.750 mAh battery. The quad camera on the back and the 32 megapixel selfie camera on the front have also been taken over. The rear camera works on the wide angle with f / 1.8 aperture with 48 megapixels and optional pixel binning on 12 megapixels and also offers a night mode. In addition, an ultra wide angle with 16 megapixels (f / 2.2) and a macro camera with 2 megapixels are added. The fourth sensor, also with 2 megapixels, is responsible for capturing depth information for portraits with bokeh effect.
Other features of the Nova 5T include a fingerprint sensor in the side frame, WLAN-ac, Bluetooth 5.0 and NFC, but no more than a 3.5 mm jack connection.
