The prestigious IFA 2016 event at Berlin has already started, and Huawei seems to have taken all the limelight as the Chinese company has launched three new devices on the first day. Huawei has launched two new mid-range smartphones at the IFA 2016 dubbed as Nova and Nova Plus, along with the Huawei MediaPad M3 tablet.
Well, though the two new handsets do not boast killer, stand out features, they are certainly very much affordable in comparison with Huawei Mate 8 and the flagship device of the company P9. The smaller version among these two newly launched smartphones, the Huawei Nova comes in an aircraft-grade aluminium body and sports a 5-inch IPS LCD with 1080p screen resolution and accepts the knuckle gestures. Under the hood, the phone features an octa-core 2GHz Snapdragon 625 chipset coupled with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage which is further expandable up to 128GB via microSD card.
On the camera aspect, Huawei Nova flaunts a 12-megapixel primary rear camera with f/2.2 aperture accompanied by large pixels (1.5m), phase-detection autofocus and 4K HD video recording capabilities. On the front end of the handset, an 8-megapixel secondary camera with f/2.0 aperture has been placed to take better selfies. The phone runs on company’s very own Emotion UI (EMUI) 4.1 OS which is based on Android 6.0 Marshmallow and is powered by a decent-sized 3,020mAh battery, which, by company claims can stand up to for two days of consistent use.
The dual-SIM supported Huawei Nova includes a fingerprint sensor, USB Type-C charging/data transfer port and Cat 6 LTE radio. Huawei has also kept in its trademark cameras tricks like time-lapse, light painting, and slow motion modes, as well as includes the recent edition of a night display feature which filters blue light from the screen.
On the other hand, as the name suggests Huawei Nova Plus is the bigger model among these two and a global variant of the G9 Plus smartphone. The smartphone features a 5.5-inch 1080p display and boasts a 16-megapixel rear camera with optical image stabilisation feature. As the phone flaunts a bigger display size, the phone also includes a bigger battery of 3,340mAh which will keep running for 2.2 days according to the company claim. Apart from these, Huawei Nova and Huawei Nova Plus both displays the identical specifications.
Both Nova and Nova Plus are available in three colour variants silver, grey or gold, and while Huawei Nova is priced at €399, the Nova Plus comes with a €429 price tag. Both the phones will be available to purchase from early October.
