The Huawei Nova 5 series.

Huawei just unveiled three new Android smartphones, the Nova 5, Nova 5 Pro and Nova 5i. All three Nova 5 models run on EMUI 9 based on Android 9.0 Pie.

The Nova 5 and Nova 5 Pro have a 6.39-inch OLED display with a small waterdrop notch and a quad-camera setup on the rear which consists of a 48MP main sensor, a 16MP ultra-wide sensor, a 2MP depth sensor and a 2MP macro sensor.

Other similar specs include 32MP front-facing camera, 3,500mAh battery, 40W fast charging, microSD card slot, Bluetooth 5.0, USB-C port, in-display fingerprint sensor, 3.5mm headphone jack.

The Nova 5 is powered by the new Kirin 810 processor with 6GB RAM while the Nova 5 Pro is equipped with the Kirin 980 processor and 8GB RAM. The Nova 5 comes with 128GB internal storage space and the Nova 5 Pro has internal storage options of up to 256GB.

The Nova 5i is equipped with a 6.4-inch LCD display with a punch-hole cutout housing the 24MP camera at the top left corner. It also has a quad-camera setup on the rear; a 24MP main sensor, a 16MP ultra-wide sensor, a 2MP depth sensor and a ToF sensor. Running under the hood are the Kirin 710 chipset, 6GB RAM and a 4,000mAh battery. It comes with 128GB internal storage space with support for microSD cards. 

The Nova 5 series will hit retail shelves in China later this month. The Nova 5, Nova 5 Pro and Nova 5i are priced from 2,799 yuan (~S$552), 2,999 yuan (~S$592) and 1,999 yuan (~S$394). There is no word on the availability outside of the Chinese market. Considering that Huawei faces an uncertain future outside of China , these phones might not be made available globally.
