Huawei continues its attempts to capture Western markets
Huawei already has some internationally-acclaimed flagship devices and the Honor sub-brand, which has also gained significant popularity with some particularly lucrative models, but it's not the third largest manufacturer in the smartphone market - and is now unveiling a new Western brand called Nova, via a pair Smartphones Up to date.
The basic Nova will feature a relatively compact 5-sized IPS screen with 1080p resolution, chip Snapdragon 625 xNUMXGHz octagonal cores with 2 nm process, 14GB RAM, built-in 3GB storage with microSD card slot for further expansion, system Android Marshmallows with Emotion UI 4.1 interface, built-in fingerprint scanner, Sony's main megapixel 12 camera with relatively large 1.25 micron pixels and phase-detection auto-focus, Sony's megapixel secondary camera - and connector USB Type-C that provides fast-charging support for the 3,020mAh battery.
The enlarged Nova Plus contains the same chip Processing, the same memory-RAM And the same storage space - but magnifies the screen to an 5.5 inch IPS at 1080p resolution, replacing the main camera with the 16 megapixel camera of Sony Which also includes an optical stabilization system and increases the battery to an 3,340mAh capacity that will probably be offset fairly evenly with the larger screen that naturally requires more energy to operate. All this at a rather moderate price.
In terms of appearance, both smartphones feature a full but different metallic casing - and while the Nova looks like a small Nexus 6P successful brother with a rounded body in the corners and a black bar at the top, the Nova Plus is actually the international version of The intriguing Maimang 5 Which we told you last month.
Like some other recent Huawei smartphones, the Nova pair seems to have one major drawback - the price. 400 Euros for the standard model and 430 Euros for the Plus model in Europe (both include tax) are high prices, which puts it in direct competition against a number of models with Snapdragon 820 chips and a larger amount of internal storage and RAM - and even a head-to-head battle In front of the corresponding brand 8 Honor, Which offers for them 400 Euro chip More powerful processing, 4GB 's memory Dynamic and a dual-camera array is a bit more unique.
So far Huawei A succession of successes has been impressive with almost every step it has taken - will the Nova be part of this chain as well? We are not really convinced, but we will continue to monitor and update you.
