Description

Huawei nova sports a 5-inch full HD display and a single 12MP rear camera with f2/2 aperture and 1.25 micron pixels. There's also an 8-megapixel selfie camera in the front that features f/2.0 aperture. The Chinese company has decided to go with a 2GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 chipset inside the Nova, which is complemented by 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal memory (expandable up to 128GB via microSD cards). It's also worth mentioning the Huawei Nova packs a fingerprint sensor on the back side, USB Type C port, as well as hybrid dual-SIM support, which means you can either put in a SIM or a microSD card. The smartphone features LTE Cat 6 and ships with Android 6.0 Marshmallow with Emotion UI 4.1 on top. The Nova is powered by a 3,020 mAh battery.
