Huawei is reportedly gearing up for the launch of its Huawei Nova 7 5G series of smartphones. Yesterday, we spotted a leaked promotional poster for the Huawei Nova 7 lineup of smartphones, which gave us a working clue as to what their design language could be. Soon after that, we were able to spot a Huawei smartphone on the Geekbench database, which we believe could be the Huawei Nova 7 smartphone. Well, let’s not talk about leaks and rumors for a while. Let’s talk about something which became official only a little while ago. Earlier today, Huawei broke the news and made the launch date of the Huawei Nova 7 series official. As it turns out, the Huawei Nova 7 lineup of smartphones, which is said to include the Huawei Nova 7, Huawei Nova 7 SE, and Huawei Nova 7 Pro, will be official on April 23, 2020 in China. This, by the way, resonates with the previously leaked launch date. Take a look at what we know about the Huawei Nova 7 lineup so far.

The promotional poster which is attached alongside shows the rear of the device(s). As seen in the promotional poster, the Huawei Nova 7 lineup of smartphones will feature a rectangular camera module at the back. Furthermore, we can see a gradient reflection coming out of the camera module.
As far as the rest of the specifications and features are concerned, the Huawei Nova 7 series smartphones will feature a curved display, which will have a dual punch-hole cutout for the front cameras, located in the top left corner. There will be three color schemes to choose from – blue, red, and gradient white. Under the hood, the Huawei Nova 7 series of smartphones is said to be powered by Kirin 820, Kirin 985, and Kirin 990 5G mobile platforms.
As far as the pricing goes, the Huawei Nova 7 could be priced somewhere around CNY 2,000 to CNY 3,000, the Huawei Nova 7 SE could be priced around CNY 3,000, and the Huawei Nova 7 Pro is tipped to be priced around CNY 3,500 to CNY 4,000.
Before we could spot the alleged Huawei Nova 7 on the Geekbench database, we were able to spot another Huawei device, which is said to be the Huawei Nova 7 SE, on the same platform. As per the Geekbench database, the Huawei Nova 7 SE will feature a Kirin 820 processor. It is said to feature a 6.5-inch Full HD+ display. Coming to the cameras of the device, the Huawei Nova 7 SE is likely going to sport a 64MP primary lens. In terms of charging, we can expect the device to boast 22.5W fast charging support over a USB Type-C charging port.

Coming to the Huawei Nova 7, the device scored 3,341 points on the single-core test and 10,322 points on the multi-core test. These benchmark scores match that of the Kirin 980 and the Kirin 985. We have reason to believe that the processor used in the Huawei Nova 7 will most likely be Kirin 985.
