Huawei Nova 5i Pro is the new smartphone to come out of Huawei’s Nova lineup. Conforming to the press render leaked recently, the new phone sports a square-shaped camera panel at the back. This way, it deviates from its brethren viz., Nova 5 and Nova 5 Pro, which had launched back in June.
Huawei Nova 5i Pro highlights
The key highlight besides the camera setup is the 7nm based octa-core Kirin 810 processor helming it. This is backed by up to 8GB of RAM, and 256GB of storage. You can further expand the storage using a micro-SD card up to 256GB. Huawei has slapped it’s EMUI 9.1 based off Android 9.0 Pie atop this hardware.
Coming back to its back camera, we have a 48MP primary camera with f/1.8 aperture, paired with an 8MP wide-angle lens, a 2MP macro camera and another 2MP depth sensor. They stay on a square island, which looks like the one on Huawei Mate 20 Pro (review).
The front camera houses a 32MP (f/2.0) selfie sensor. Both cameras front and back features night mode, HDR, portrait mode, and AI optimizations. Speaking of its residence, the front display is a 6.26-inch full HD+ LCD panel with a punch-hole. It boasts the TUV Rheinland certification against Bluelight emission and also complies with the DCI-P3 color gamut.
The phone draws from a 4,000mAh battery that supports 22.5W fast charging.
