Earlier this week, The Chinese Giant launched Huawei Nova 5T in Europe which is actually another variant of Honor 20 but the company hasn’t closed out its smartphone lineup for 2019 yet. The Chinese brand has just launched its newest upcoming smartphone, dubbed the Nova 5Z. Introduced earlier this year in June, the Nova 5 series offered three amazing smartphones prior to the 5Z & 5T – the Nova 5 and Nova 5i and the Nova 5 Pro. 

Huawei Nova 5Z is now up for sale at the company's official online store in china called the Vmall.  The listing showcases a 6.26-inch full HD+ display with a punch-hole design, next to no bezels, and a quad-camera setup housed in a matrix module.

Resting underneath this square-circular setup is a capacitive fingerprint reader. Right off the bat, it’s not difficult to tell that the 5Z borrows its design language from the Nova 5i Pro. It carries over the squircle camera housing while also inheriting the punch hole design. 

Diving into the Nova 5Z’s optics capabilities, it features a square-shaped quad-camera module at the rear. The setup includes a 48-megapixel primary shooter along with with an MP super wide-angle camera, a 2MP macro lens, and another 2MP depth sensor. On the front, you have a 32-megapixel selfie camera sitting inside the punch hole. furthermore, the device comes loaded with numerous AI features including the wide-angle distortion correction, the super night mode and much more.

Huawei 5Z is energized by a 4000mAh battery that also supports 20 watts fast charging. The phone comes in two different memory variants: a standard version with 6 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage and a premium-tier variant with 8 gigs of RAM and 128 GB of onboard storage.

The Nova 5Z is powered by the brand’s own Kirin 810 chipset and will run on the latest Android 9 Pie OS with EMUI 9.1 on top. Other features include a 3D hyperboloid cover glass on the back, USB Type-C, 3.5mm headphone jack, and GPU Turbo.

Huawei Nova 5Z is now available for purchase in china and the price of the basic 6GB + 64 GB variant starts from just 1,599 Yuan or 35,000 Pakistani rupees. Do you think that Huawei is recycling its old designs? Let us know what you think in the comments below!
