The European version of the Huawei nova 5T is now available in the UK. The nova 5T is the first Huawei phone available in the UK with a hole punch display à la Samsung’s Galaxy S10 series. The device boasts a 6.26-inch LCD display with a 1080p resolution.
Like all Huawei smartphones, the nova 5T is equipped with an array of cameras. Four to be precise. In addition to a pixel-packed primary camera, the nova 5T also boasts an ultra wide-angle lens, a macro sensor, and another module dedicated to applying bokeh effects on its rear.
Although the Huawei nova 5T doesn’t have a curvaceous display, 5G support, or super slow-motion video recording, it does come with support for Google apps and services. That’s because although the device is debuting in the UK for the first time, it was already available in a number of Asian regions. Only new Huawei phones debuting globally are impacted by the US’ ongoing trade ban.
So when you unwrap the nova 5T it will come with all the Android apps and services you expect, like the Play Store, Google Maps, Chrome and more pre-installed.
When it comes to performance, Huawei hasn’t held much back. The nova 5T is fitted with the firm’s own Kirin 980 chipset the should keep it ticking along nicely. Accompanying its snappy processor is 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage.
Battery life shouldn’t be a problem for the nova 5T either, the phone is fitted with a generous 3,750 cell that should still have juice after a full day of usage. When you do run out of juice, the nova 5T supports 22.5W fast wired charging that Huawei claims can refill the phone from zero to 50 percent in half an hour. The phone can’t be charged wirelessly though.
Huawei nova 5T is available now SIM-free for £399 and comes bundled with a Huawei Freelace wireless earphones worth £99.99 and can be found in three colours: Crush Blue, Dark Black, and Midsummer Purple.
