Even though Huawei is going through the worst time in the company’s history with the U.S. ban, the company is backing off from launching new devices. Huawei has confirmed that it will be launching Nova 5 series smartphones on 21st June in China.
Now, ahead of the launch, render of the protective case of the Nova 5 has leaked online, which reveals that the smartphone will feature a waterdrop notch on top of the display. It also suggests that the phone will have an in-display fingerprint sensor given that there’s no cut-out for the traditional fingerprint sensor.
The leak also shows that the phone will come with four camera sensors arranged vertically on the back panel, along with an LED flash. The camera module on the phone is placed in the top-left corner.
Earlier, tempered glass for the Huawei Nova 5 had leaked online, which also revealed that the phone will have a waterdrop notch in the center of the display. It also hints at minimal bezels surrounding the display.
Along with this, a case render of the Huawei Nova 5 Pro shows its back panel. This confirms the quad camera setup for an enhanced camera experience. There’s also no rear-mounted fingerprint sensor and is likely to house an in-display fingerprint sensor.
As for the specifications, the Nova 5 is expected to come powered by the company’s own Kirin 810 octa-core chipset while the Nova 5 Pro is said to be powered by the Kirin 980 flagship chipset. The Nova 5i, on the other hand, is expected to come powered by Kirin 710 octa-core processor. The Huawei P20 Lite (2019), which was recently launched in Europe, is expected to come as Huawei Nova 5i.
Along with the Nova series smartphones, the Chinese smartphone maker is also going to launch the Huawei M6 tablet at the launch event. To know the pricing and availability details of all these devices, we’ll have to wait until the official launch event in China that will take place on 21st June.
