Today’s mid-tier smartphone segment is filled with generic light-versions of flagship devices with monotone designs. However, Huawei is known for breaking this mold with its reputed nova series. One of Huawei’s most unique and dynamic series, the Huawei nova series is packed with devices that deliver both design and functionality. Refreshing this series with a whole new look and feel will be the upcoming HUAWEI nova 5T, the latest addition to the fan-favorite series and a trend-setter for the mid-tier segment.
Huawei Mobile Kenya has once again introduced a nova5T device in green color that will be retailing at Kshs 35,000 in all retail stores across the country. The HUAWEI nova 5T houses a powerful combination of a 48MP HD lens, a 16MP Ultra-Wide Angle lens, a 2MP macro lens and a 2MP bokeh lens for portrait shots. While the raw power of these lenses alone can result in amazing pictures in low-light situations, a wide frame for scenic landscape shots, extreme close-ups and beautiful portrait shots with blur effects, what truly makes the HUAWEI nova 5T’s camera setup stand out is its powerful AI system. The on-board AI system is capable of recognizing up to 22 scenes, be it a scenic shot, a photo of your pet, plants etc, and adjusts the settings accordingly for a perfect snap. It also helps with AI Image Stabilization (AIS), AI HDR+ backlit phot and Auto Exposure Lock (AEL) for perfect shots in low-light situations.
Speaking of the new addition, Huawei Mobile Kenya County Head Zhujie Jim said: “Taking its name from both “innovation” and “new star” in Latin, the nova series is Huawei’s youthful and chic product line packed with innovative devices. The nova series is quite well known for its trendsetting devices, allowing it to create a niche market within the mid-tier segment as light flagship smartphones. These devices pack the style and trends of the segment but with features and hardware seen on flagship devices, including premium camera hardware, flagship-grade Kirin chips, GPU Turbo technology and more. This has led to the huge popularity of the nova series, with over 100 million users to date using nova devices.”
“Founded on the principle of innovation, Huawei’s nova brand is aimed at bringing new concepts fresh ideas to its audience which include but are not limited to powerful hardware and flagship features but also caters to every user’s need for spiritual expression. The nova series also incorporates an element of chic design into its devices, making it perfect for those who complement their outfits with smartphones. Thanks to its unique design elements, the nova series always stands out from the rest of the crowd. This uniqueness is what the nova series stands for, encouraging its users, primarily youngsters to do the same with these powerful devices to find their own identity,’” he concluded.
Powering the smartphone is the flagship Kirin 980, supported by 8GB of RAM with 128GB of storage space. It also runs on Huawei’s EMUI 9.1, which packs in its own array of smart features that make it more user-friendly.
In terms of battery power, the phone comes packed with a large 3750mAh battery that can quickly recharge with the 22.5W Huawei SuperCharge, which can charge up to 50% in just 30 minutes.
