Huawei is reportedly planning to refresh its mid-range lineup with an update to its Nova 5 series. A report by 91 Mobiles claims that the company will launch a new handset called the Huawei Nova 6 5G shortly. At this time, it is unclear if the Nova 6 series would make it to India. The company had launched the Nova 3 series back in 2018 but did not follow that up with the Nova 5 earlier this year. As amply clear from the naming scheme, the Nova 6 series includes a 5G capable handset that may not be India bound. If Huawei does have plans to bring it to India, there could be a 4G variant of the same. Anyway, let us now take a closer look at the Huawei Nova 6 5G.
At this time, we do not have details regarding the hardware specifications of the Nova 6 5G. However, it would not be wrong of us to assume that it will come powered by Huawei’s own HiSilicon Kirin 7-series or 8-series chipsets and would be offered with at least 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage.
What we do know about the nova 6 5G is the overall design language of the device. An image posted by 91 Mobiles indicates that the phone will come with a glass-coated rear panel. The rear panel also gets the now standard gradient finish to offer an overall premium look. While we do not know the display type or the size yet, what is evident from the image is that the Nova 6 5G will come with a pill-shaped punch hole on the left corner where the front camera apparatus is housed. Overall, the phone looks quite sleek and has tiny bezels around it with a small chin. The lack of a fingerprint scanner on the rear panel could be an indication that the display could integrate the same. This also means that the Huawei Nova 6 5G could come with an OLED display.
A glance at the rear panel reveals a triple camera setup with Huawei’s standard text ‘AI Camera’ clearly written. There is also talk about the phone featuring a ToF sensor for measuring depth-related information. The phone could also feature laser autofocus. Additionally, the image also reveals black lines on the rear panel, which could be the antennae for 5G connectivity.
