Huawei Nova details – another promising phone from Huawei

Huawei is about to release another phone called the Huawei Nova. At first glance this looks like a mix between the Nexus 6P and Huawei GX8. The front even looks a little like it’s little brother Honor 8. Huawei has come a long way in the last year or so, bringing us quality phones that don’t cost an arm and leg. I love my Note 7, but it doesn’t love my wallet. The Nexus 6P to this day is still one of my top favorite devices and would use it over some 2016 flagships. So when Huawei releases another phone, I pay attention.

More About The Huawei Nova

One of the things I appreciate about Huawei is they do their best to provide a phone with high-end specs and features for a low cost. You get a lot out of each phone and is worth investing in. This midrange phone packs 4k recording, outstanding build materials, large battery, USB Type C, and more. The Nova has a minimal curved design that looks great!

The camera is another area Huawei has been excelling in and I can’t wait to see the results it produces. The camera has a large pixel shooter, low light, 4k, and refreshed beauty mode.

Other perks of the Nova include claiming long battery life, dual SIM card support, 3D fingerprint sensor, and a 14mm processor.

The Nova is looking to be a phone to keep an eye on, especially if the price is right. With the holidays right around the corner, this could be a nice buy for that special someone.
