The Huawei Nova 5 Pro is equipped with 6.39 inch OLED screen with a resolution of 2340 x 1080 pixels and a notch in the shape of a drop of water. The fingerprint reader is located under the slab of the phone. He embarks on SoC Kirin 980, the best system-on-chip brand, which is already found in the P30 and Mate 20 series. It is coupled to 8 GB of RAM and up to 256 GB of storage space, expandable via microSD.
The autonomy is entrusted to a compatible 3500 mAh battery 40W Fast Charge which promises 0 to 85% in just 30 minutes. Side of the photo, we are entitled to a quadruple sensor.

Huawei Nova 5
The Nova 5 is very close to the Pro model. It has the same design and both smartphones share many features. The main difference is in the SoC: the Nova 5 runs with the new Kirin 810 introduced for the occasion. This is the second Huawei SoC to be recorded at 7nm with the Kirin 980. RAM and internal variants are smaller, but for the rest we are dealing with a device similar to the Nova 5 Pro.

The proposal here is a primary 24-megapixel sensor, a 16-megapixel ultra-wide depth of 2 megapixels and a ToF sensor.
The Nova 5i, however, stands out in the issue of autonomy, with a 4000 mAh battery. However, it only supports a 10W recharge. The fingerprint reader is positioned on the back of your smartphone. As for the whole series, the EMUI 9 overlay based on Android 9 Pie is in the game.
