Huawei Friday launched the Nova 5i Pro in China. The device comes as a surprise, considering that Huawei only launched the Nova 5, Nova 5 Pro and Nova 5i about a month ago. The Nova 5i Pro lifts the bar higher for premium mid-range models. Here’s a photo tour of the Nova 5i Pro hitting you courtesy of Chinese blog My drivers.
The Nova 5i Pro is indeed a beautiful smartphone with a sleek design that has now become Huawei’s trademark. The device utilizes glass panels on the front and rear with a metallic frame in between.
The 5i Pro features an expansive 6.26-inch display with a punch-hole selfie camera nested at the top left corner of the display. This is likely an LCD display so Samsung still remains the OEM with the LED punch-hole display. With a Full HD+ resolution of 1080 x 2340 pixels, the display will sure offer vivid clarity while it can be operated with one hand since it uses a 19.5:9 aspect ratio.
At the rear aspect, the Nova 5i Pro features a square-shaped camera module similar to the flagship Mate 20X design. But in this case, there are four rear cameras with the LED at the right corner of the module. There is also a fingerprint sensor just under the camera module.
The phone uses a USB-C port and equally has a 3.5mmm audio jack by the side of the charging port at the bottom edge. There is a 4000mAh battery on board with a 22.5W fast charging technology via the Type C port. The phone comes with two hybrid SIM slots with the SIM module at the left side of the display while the capacitive keys are at the right side.
For a phone that starts at 2,199 chines Yuan (~$319), the Huawei Nova 5i Pro is indeed a value for money phone. But we can’t say if it will wiggle out of the Huawei/US debacle and fly. See more pictures of the sleek device below.
