Huawei Officially Launches Mid-range nova 7 5G In The Philippines, Insane Freebies For First 100 Buyers

2020 is the year of 5G for Huawei

Huawei’s really cranking out 5G-capable smartphones this year and has officially announced the arrival of the mid-range nova 7 5G in the Philippines.

The nova 7 5G is the supercharged version of Huawei’s earlier mid-range nova 7 SE 5G, sporting a better camera, better screen, and a much more powerful processing package.

Specifically, the nova 7 5G swaps out the 2-megapixel depth camera that’s on the nova 7 SE 5G, replacing it with an 8-megapixel telephoto camera with an f/2.2 aperture instead. The three other cameras, namely the 64-megapixel f/1.8 aperture main camera, f/2.2 super wide-angle camera, and the 2-megapixel macro camera stay unchanged.

Instead of an LCD IPS panel, the nova 7 5G now gets a 6.53-inch OLED panel with an under-display fingerprint scanner, and a 32-megapixel front camera nestled under the punch-hole notch on the upper left of the display.

As for the processing package, the phone gets a Kirin 985 5G processor, along with 8GB of RAM and a massive 256GB internal storage – pretty generous compared to the competition.

The phone will come in two colorways – Space Silver and Midsummer Purple – and will be available in Huawei stores nationwide starting July 31, 2020, and consumers who will make purchases in-store can get a slew of freebies worth more than PHP 9000 until August 2, 2020. This includes HUAWEI Watch GT2e, FREE HUAWEI 15GB Cloud Storage for a year, Five (5) Exclusive, and Customized Dynamic Themes on HUAWEI Themes, FREE 3-month subscription of VIU Premium, FREE 3-month Booky Prime membership, PHP150 Pesoloan Cashback, PHP70 GCash voucher, and PHP50 Paymaya voucher.

Meanwhile, first 100 nova 7 5G consumers on Shopee or Lazada will get a chance to receive PHP 18390 worth of freebies including a HUAWEI Watch GT 2e worth P6,990 and one additional HUAWEI FreeBuds 3 worth P8,990 that lucky five (5) consumers per day can get on a first-come, first-served basis.
