Huawei has unveiled the nova 5T, its latest budget flagship smartphone, taking aim at the millennial segment as it aims to grow its market share in the MENA region.
At an event in Dubai today, Huawei announced that the nova 5T will be able for pre-order in the UAE starting October 22, and for sale starting October 31 at a retail price of AED1,599.
The nova 5T will be available in 3 color variants— black, blue, and a flagship purple that comes with a new nova monogram pattern.
As with most Huawei phones, it is the camera setup that needs to be talked about first and most.
The Android-powered 5T comes with four rear cameras, including a 48MP HD lens, 16MP wide-angle lens, 2MP macro lens, and 2MP bokeh lens. This camera setup is complemented by features such as AI Image Stabilization, Super Night Mode, AI HDR+ backlit photo, Auto Exposure Lock and Auto Focus Lock.
On the video front, Huawei has added features such as AI Portrait Color, which adds a cinematic effect of a greyscale background with only the subject in full color, as well as Super Slow-Mo, which shoots at a 960 fps.
There is, of course, the fifth camera—a 32MP AI Selfie camera with 4-in-1 Pixel fusion and AI HDR+ features.
The nova 5T, which comes with a 6.26-inch HUAWEI Punch FullView Display, uses the EMUI 9.1 operating system, which is powered by the premium Kirin 980 AI processor and 8GB of RAM. This is supported by 128GB of storage for storing what predictably could be large amounts of photos and videos.
The nova 5T supports fast charging—its 22.5W SuperCharge technology can quickly charge the phone’s large 3750 mAh battery. The nova 5T also packs Histen 6.0, Huawei’s third-generation headset 3D audio technology, which supports 9.1 channel for a 3D audio experience.
