Huawei unveiled the Nova and Nova Plus at IFA today alongside an 8.4-inch MediaPad M3 tablet. Rather than throwing all their wares into another couple of devices Huawei have wisely settled the Nova and Nova Plus in the mid-range arena, offering an 8MP front camera and a 12MP rear shooter (16MP on the Nova Plus) with large 1.25 μm pixel size.
The Nova takes some design flourishes from the Nexus 6P, looking like a little brother. A 5-inch Full HD IPS LCD display covers a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 with 3GB of RAM, 32GB of expandable storage, a 12MP camera, 8MP front facer, USB-C conneciton and a handsome 3025mAh battery. The larger Nova Plus mirrors much of the Nova save for a larger 5.5-inch Full HD display, a 16MP rear camera and even handsomer 3340mAh battery. Huawei’s impressive fingerprint sensors rule the day, and EMUI 4.1 atop of Android 6.0 Marshmallow keeps things moving.
The MediaPad M3 tablet offers generous 8.4-inch display with a resolution of 2560 x 1600 powered by the HiSilicon Kirin 950 SoC that we recently saw in the Honor 8, 8MP front and rear cameras, 4GB of RAM and either 32GB or 64GB or storage and a 5100mAh battery. Again EMUI 4.1 covers Android 6.0 Marshmallow.
The Nova will be priced at €399. The Nova Plus sits at €429 and the MediaPad M3 ranges from €349 to €449 depending on storage and LTE options
