After several weeks of leaks and speculations, Huawei officially took the wraps off its nova 7 series comprising of three devices – the nova 7 Pro, nova 7 and nova 7 SE. All three phones come with 5G connectivity, 64MP main cameras and 4,000 mAh batteries with 40W fast charging. The main differences come in the displays and chipsets where the nova 7 and 7 Pro pack the Kirin 985 while the 7 SE relies on the Kirin 820.
nova 7 Pro
The Huawei nova 7 Pro 5G is built around a curved 6.57 OLED display with FHD+ resolution and a 19.5:9 aspect ratio. The panel features a dual punch hole cutout for the 32MP and 8MP selfie cameras and a built-in fingerprint scanner.
Around the back, we find a 1/1.7” 64MP main shooter, alongside an 8MP ultrawide snapper and an 8MP periscope module with OIS capable of 5X optical and up to 50X hybrid zoom. The fourth module is a 2MP macro shooter.
The Kirin 985 chipset sits at the helm, aided by 8GB RAM and 128/256GB storage. There’s also a 4,000 mAh battery which supports 40W top-ups. The software front is covered by EMUI 10.1 based on Android 10.
The Huawei nova 7 Pro will come in black, purple, green, red and silver colors and is already available for pre-order in China. The base 8/128GB model will go for CNY 3,700($522/INR 39,757) while the 8/256GB trim will cost CNY 4,100 ($580/INR 44,068). Official sales start on April 28.
The nova 7 5G boasts a 6.53 OLED FHD+ display with a single punch hole cutout for its 32MP selfie camera. The panel has a 20:9 aspect ratio and also comes with a built-in fingerprint scanner.
The camera department is headlined by the same 64MP main shooter as the Pro but the periscope module is replaced by a conventional 8MP telephoto shooter which only does 3X optical and 5X hybrid zoom. The fourth module is a 2MP macro snapper.
Like the Pro the nova 7 packs the Kirin 985 alongside 8GB RAM and 128/256GB storage. The battery is rated at 4,000 mAh and supports 40W fast wired fast charging.
The nova 7 will be offered in black, purple, green, red and silver colors. The 8/128GB trim will go for CNY 3,000 ($425/INR 32,220), there’s also a 8/256GB version for CNY 3,400 ($480/INR 36,517). The phone will go on sale in China starting April 28.
nova 7 SE
The third entry of the new nova series is the nova 7 SE. It’s a toned-down version of the vanilla nova 7 with a 6.5-inch IPS display with a punch hole cutout for the 16MP selfie camera. The phone comes with a side-mounted fingerprint reader as its LCD can't fit one underneath.
The nova 7 SE comes with a 64MP main camera, 8MP ultrawide shooter and 2MP macro snapper just like its two siblings but replaces the telephoto lens with a 2MP depth helper.
Another change comes under the hood where we find the Kirin 820 5G chipset aided by 8GB RAM and 128/256GB storage. The battery comes in at 4,000 mAh and offers 40W fast wired charging.
The nova 7 SE will launch in black, purple, green and silver colors for CNY 2,400 ($340/INR 25,794) in its 8/128GB trim and CNY 2,800 ($395/INR 30,078) for the 8/256GB model. The device is already up for pre-order. Official sales tip-off on April 28.
