Huawei launched the Nova 5 series last month in China which included the Nova 5, Nova 5 Pro and the Nova 5i. There were reports of a Nova 5i Pro too but the Chinese manufacturer didn’t announce it at the launch event. Now a schematic diagram from its manual has surfaced online confirming the device does exist. The promo materials have also surfaced revealing all the specs of the device.
From the list, the Nova 5i will feature a 6.26 inch FHD+ display with a punch-hole that houses the selfie camera. It has a 19:5:9 aspect ratio and a screen-to-body ratio of 90.7-percent. Under the hood, it will be powered by the more powerful Kirin 810 instead of the Nova 5i’s Kirin 710F. There will be 8GB of RAM paired with 128GB or 256GB of internal storage.
In the optics department, the Nova 5i Pro will sport the Mate 20 Pro’s Matrix camera design but with four sensors instead of three. It consists of a 48MP primary sensor, a 8MP super-wide sensor, an 2MP macro sensor and a 2MP depth sensor. There is a LED flash placed on the right side of the camera module while the circular fingerprint sensor is placed at the bottom. Onthe front it offers a 32MP sensor. The handset will draw power from a 4,000 mAh battery with support for 20W fast charging. Huawei claims that it can charge 50% in just thirty minutes and takes 90 minutes to charge to 100%.
The Nova 5i will be available in three colors- Aurora, Emerald and Midnight Black. The rear of the phone has a 3D curve but its not clear if it is glass or plastic. The specs of the promo material is identical to those of the TENAA certified Huawei SPN-AL00 and Huawei SPN-TL00 which are reported to be variants of the Mate 30 Lite. In that case, the Nova 5i Pro will be launched in Europe and other markets as the Mate 30 Lite.
