In December last year, Huawei launched the Nova 6 Series that included Nova 6, Nova 6 SE and the Nova 6 5G. Now, Huawei has launched the Nova 7 Series in China and while the last year’s Nova 6 Series had only one 5G device, all the three phones launched under the Nova 7 Series have 5G support. The Huawei Nova 7 Series include the Nova 7 SE, Nova 7 and Nova 7 Pro.
HUAWEI NOVA 7 SE – DESIGN & SPECIFICATIONS
The Nova 7 SE is the cheapest among the three since it is a mid-range device unlike the other two, which are flagships. It has a 3D Glass back, a side-facing fingerprint scanner and a single punch-hole display on the front. There are Quad cameras on the back placed on the top left in a rectangular camera housing. The USB Type-C port is placed on the bottom, and the phone does have a headphone jack.
The display on the front is a 6.5-inch Full-HD+ LTPS LCD panel, and that’s the reason the fingerprint scanner is on the side instead of being under the display. The SOC powering the Nova 7 SE is the Kirin 820 5G which is one of the most powerful mid-range chipsets currently in the market. It has the Mali-G57 GPU and a Neural Network Processing Unit.
The phone comes with 8GB RAM and 128/256GB internal storage. The storage is expandable, but for that, you have to buy a Nano Memory Card as the regular microSD card cannot be used.
Talking about the cameras now, the Huawei Nova 7 SE features a Quad camera setup on the rear that includes a primary 64-megapixel camera with f/1.8 aperture lens. There is a secondary 8 Megapixel ultra-wide camera, a 2 Megapixel macro camera and a 2 Megapixel depth sensor. The camera on the front is a 16 Megapixel unit.
Finally, the Nova 7 SE comes with a 4,000mAh battery and an impressive 40W fast charging. EMUI based on Android 10 runs out of the box without Google services.
The Nova 7 SE comes in four color options and here is the pricing for the Chinese market –
- 8GB RAM + 128GB ROM – 2,399 Yuan ($339)
- 8GB RAM + 256GB ROM – 2,799 Yuan ($395)
HUAWEI NOVA 7 – DESIGN & SPECIFICATIONS
Well, Huawei went all out with the color options as the Nova 7 comes in not two or three but five different color options – Black, Red, Green, Purple, and Silver. Anyways, the design is mostly the same as the Nova 7 SE since the Nova 7 too has a Quad camera setup on the rear and a single punch-hole display on the front. The major design change is that there is an in-display fingerprint scanner since the phone has an OLED panel.
The Huawei Nova 7 has a 6.53-inch flat OLED display on the front with Full-HD+ resolution. Under the hood, it has the all-new Kirin 985 5G SOC which comes with a Mali-G77 GPU and an NPU. There is 8GB RAM and 128/256GB storage. Unlike the Nova 7 SE, though, you cannot expand the storage even with the Nano Memory card.
The Quad cameras on the rear include a primary 64 Megapixel camera with f/1.8 aperture lens, a secondary 8 Megapixel ultrawide camera, an 8 Megapixel 3X Telephoto camera, and a 2 Megapixel Macro camera. There is a 32 Megapixel selfie camera. So, the rear camera is the same as Nova 7 SE except for the fact that the Huawei Nova 7 has a telephoto camera as opposed to the depth sensor on the Nova SE.
Finally, there is a 4,000mAh battery and 40W Fast Wired Charging support.
The Huawei Nova 7, as mentioned above, comes in five color options and here is the pricing –
- 8GB RAM + 128GB ROM – 2,999 Yuan ($423)
- 8GB RAM + 256GB ROM – 3,399 Yuan ($480)
HUAWEI NOVA 7 PRO – DESIGN & SPECIFICATIONS
Finally, we have the Nova 7 Pro, which is the most expensive among the three and hence the most feature-packed. Just like the Nova 7, it comes in five different color options. Design-wise, the biggest change on the front is the curved OLED display and dual punch-hole selfie cameras. Moreover, on the rear, there is now a periscope camera.
Talking about the cameras first, the Nova 7 Pro features a Quad camera setup on the back that includes a primary 64 Megapixel camera with f/1.8 aperture lens, a secondary 8 Megapixel ultrawide camera, an 8 Megapixel Periscope cc with 5X Optical Zoom, and a 2 Megapixel macro camera.
There are dual cameras on the front as well that include a primary 32 Megapixel camera paired with an 8 Megapixel ultrawide camera.
Under the hood, the Nova 7 Pro has the same Kirin 985 5G SOC as the Nova 7. There is 8GB RAM paired with 128/256GB storage.
The display on the front is a 6.57-inch OLED Full-HD+ panel with curved sides. Also, it is a normal 60Hz screen, so there is no high-refresh-rate display even on the most expensive phone among the three. There is a 4,000mAh battery and 40W fast wired charging.
The Huawei Nova 7 Pro comes in five colors and here is the pricing –
- 8GB RAM + 128GB ROM – 3,699 Yuan ($522)
- 8GB RAM + 256GB ROM – 4,099 Yuan ($579)
All the three phones under the Nova 7 Series will go on sale starting April 28th in China. There is no information yet on the launch in other markets outside China.
