Huawei had unveiled the Nova and Nova Plus range of smartphones at IFA Berlin 2016 with both models boasting of mid-range specs. Also both smartphones were billed to enter into the market globally this October but before that will happen, Huawei has now launched a 4GB RAM version of the Huawei Nova (CAZ-AL10) yesterday in China.
The Huawei Nova earlier released comes in silver, gray or gold color variants, adorning a beautiful design and just like the Nova Plus, was launched with just 3GB RAM onboard. The launch of a 4GB RAM variant, even before the device hits store shelves could be seen as a major tweaking to give the mid-range device more competitiveness. Apart from the RAM upgrade, the new version of the Huawei Nova (CAZ-AL10) now comes with support for LTE-A carrier aggregation on supported Chinese carriers, having the ability to deliver download speed of up to 300Mbps. In addition, the device comes in white and black color variants only which clearly distinguishes it from the 3GB RAM version. The device is already up for purchase in China.
To recall, the Huawei Nova sports a 5-inch IPS display with 1080 pixel resolution and is powered by an Octa-core 2GHz Snapdragon 625 processor, with 32GB of built-in storage which can be expanded further than that via microSD up to 128GB. There’s also a beautifully designed 12MP main camera at the rear with LED flash and f/2.2 aperture, and an 8MP selfie camera with f/2.0 aperture up front.
Furthermore, the Huawei Nova runs on Huawei’s custom Emotion UI 4.1 (EMUI 4.1) based on Android 6.0 Marshmallow bringing along several of Huawei’s UI features, like slow-motion modes, light painting, time-lapse. Huawei also updated the night display feature that filters blue light from the screen. There is also a 3,020mAh battery inside the device which Huawei claims drains so slowly that it can last for two days of consistent usage. Added to all these include a fingerprint sensor, USB Type-C data transfer and charging port, Cat 6 LTE radio, dual-SIM slots etc.
