Huawei South Africa has released its newest smartphone handset brand, the Nova, in South Africa. It features a multi-curve design feature, camera advances for more vivid photography and performance updates for enhanced usability.
The devices are priced competitively at a recommended retail price of ZAR R 6999, making it a high-spec, affordable handset for young consumers.
“South Africans by nature are dynamic consumers. As such, they demand a device that keeps up with their fast-paced lifestyle,” said Zhao Likun, General Manager of Huawei South Africa Consumer Business Group. “Huawei Nova is an excellent device for South Africa’s youthful market, with a growing share of smartphone users. These devices will bring new experiences to life with its incredible performance, design and camera features.”
The Huawei Nova smartphone’s curved surfaces and 5-inch screen connect seamlessly to create an ergonomic, compact design, enabling single-handed functionality. Huawei says the Nova draws inspiration from curves found in modern architecture, with its curved metallic back polished by an advanced sandblasting process, hairline finishing and oblong composite panel stretching across the top of the phone.
An 8-megapixel front-facing camera is complemented by Huawei’s proprietary Beauty Makeup 2.0 and Beautiful Skin 3.0 applications, which apply cosmetic effects and skin smoothing filters to create more flattering images.
The Nova’s 12-megapixel rear camera with 1.25um larger pixel sports an enhanced wide-aperture lens and imaging sensor, allowing it to capture photos in low-light conditions. In addition, the Huawei Nova supports fast autofocus for greater accuracy.
The Nova is powered by the Snapdragon 625 processor, which uses advanced 14nm technology to increase performance and reduce power consumption. The Huawei Nova’s 3020 mAh battery with Smart Power 4.0 can power longer sessions. With a 3D fingerprint sensor, the Huawei Nova supports faster and more accurate 360-degree unlocking for improved security, convenience and single hand selfies.
The Huawei Nova will be available at all operators.
