With the huge success of the Nova 3 and Nova 3i, Huawei has finally launched its new upper-mid-range smartphone, Huawei Nova 5T, today in Nepal with a price of Rs. 53,990. The popular lite flagship of 2018 Nova 3 and Nova 3i, did amazing during their launch by selling over 2000 units in just 2 hours. Being the successor to the higher-end Nova 3, there’s no doubt that Nova 5T is packed with better and more and advanced features.
Design and Display
The phone comes with a large 6.26-inch IPS LCD Full HD+ 1080p display with a punch-hole design on the top-left for the front camera. On the back, it has a strong glass panel which gives off a beautiful 3-D light effect making the phone look more premium. Unlike the slower and in development in-display fingerprint sensor, it still has the physical fingerprint sensor but it is on the right side just below the volume buttons for ease of reach.
Among the phone’s advanced features is their flagship-level processor, Kirin 980 (7nm) which was also used in Huawei’s flagship smartphone of 2019, the P30 Pro. So, I don’t have to tell you how good the games run in this device. PUBG Mobile easily runs at max settings meanwhile providing enough juice to perform other tasks parallelly. The only variant of the phone available in Nepal is the 8GB RAM and 128GB storage variant. These specs are more than enough to perform all types of tasks you can think of doing on your phone.
Another selling point of this phone is its impressive quad-camera setup i.e. 48MP F1.8 (main) Sony IMX586+ 16MP F2.2 (ultrawide) + 2MP F2.4 (macro) + 2MP F2.4 (depth). The 48MP shots provide greater quality even while cropping and all types of camera shots are backed up by the high-end processor AI capabilities for stunning pictures. The Night mode is impressive and the maximum video resolution is 4K at 30fps. Various shooting options are also embedded in the native camera app. The 32MP AI-supported front camera also gives out stunning selfies in both low light and other normal conditions.
The phone also has a good 3750mah battery which supports 22.5W supercharging that completely fills your phone’s empty belly in less than 2 hours. The battery lasts for a whole day on normal usage and about 9-10 hours on heavy usage with Performance mode turned on.
