While Huawei has managed to impress many with their flagship phones the past few months, it’s the mid-range market where the company truly excels. While we’ve seen the G9 Plus revealed in China a few weeks ago, we still don’t have an idea when that particular mid-range phone will arrive in markets outside of the company’s home country.
At least, until now. Huawei has officially unveiled the Nova and Nova Plus in IFA today, and only the Nova is the unknown, since the Nova Plus is essentially a re-badged G9 Plus for western markets.
Huawei’s Nova is essentially a smaller, sleeker P9, as it sports the roughly the same design language as the company’s Leica co-branded device with that black strip at the rear. The phone sports purely mid-range specs though – a 5-inch full HD display, 2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon Snapdragon 625 octa-core processor, 3GB of RAM and 32GB of expandable storage. The rear camera is a single 12-megapixel shooter with f/2.0 aperture while the front camera is a 8-megapixel deal with an f/2.0 aperture.
Like we said earlier the Nova Plus isn’t a new device to us – it’s essentially the G9 Plus that was revealed earlier in China. To recap, the phone has then same Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 octa-core processor as the Nova, either 3GB or 4GB of RAM and 32GB or 64GB of storage.
The Nova is priced at an equivalent of €399 (Php 20.7K) while the Nova Plus is priced at €429 (Php 22.3K)
