The only difference are RAM and storage options
Huawei introduced a new Nova 5 variant in China with the Nova 5z. As what previous renders and teasers have confirmed, the Nova 5z is similar to the Nova 5i Pro that launched a few months back—save for RAM and storage configuration.
With the Nova 5z, you only get 6GB RAM paired with either 64GB or 128GB of internal storage. Everything else is the same: Kirin 810, 6.26-inch Full HD+ punch hole display, 48-megapixel Sony IMX586 f/1.8 main camera, 32-megapixel front camera, and 4000mAh battery with 20w SuperCharge.
