Despite Trump’s embargo, Huawei is still standing as one of the top brands in the smartphone industry. The Chinese technology mammoth has just launched a new series of smartphones called Nova 7, where it brought 5G to all three handsets under this series.
These phones, namely Huawei Nova 7 Pro, Nova 7, and Nova 7 SE are placed from the budget premium segment to the flagship segment. Let’s Check out each device sequentially:
Huawei Nova 7 Pro
Huawei Nova 7 Pro sports a 6.57-inches FHD+ OLED display with dual punch (or capsule-like) hole at the top left corner to house the front camera. The display is tuned curved on either side and supports the in-display fingerprint sensor. It runs on Android 10 based EMUI 10.1 bloatware.
This handset’s operations are processed by Huawei’s in-house chip, HiSilicon Kirin 985 SoC, which supports 5G and comes with Mali-G77 GPU. With 8GB RAM, it has either 128GB or 256GB onboard storage variants with no slots for external storage.
It’s powered by a 4000mAh battery with 40W fast charging support. However, it does have wireless charging support.
Other than 5G support and impressive display, the camera section is where Nova 7 Pro shines. It has a quad rear camera setup of 64-megapixel (f/1.7) primary sensor, an 8-megapixel (f/2.4) sensor as ultrawide angular, another 8-megapixel (f/3.4) telephoto lens, and a 2-megapixel macro lens.
The telephoto lens has got a periscope module that OIS supports and can zoom up to 50X. Upfront, there is two camera lens as 32-megapixel and 8-megapixel set into punch-hole.
This handset is priced at ¥3,699 (approx. $523) for 8GB RAM + 128GB storage variant and ¥4,099 (approx. $579) for the 8GB RAM + 256GB storage variant. It comes in Midsummer Purple, Honey Red color, Forest Green, Midnight Black, and Silver colors. It’s available for pre-orders in China already and sale begins from April 28th onwards.
Huawei Nova 7
The regular Huawei Nova 7 is no less than its big brother (Pro), as it shares the same chipset, battery, OS, and display capabilities. However, Nova 7 has a 6.53-inches FHD+ OLED display with an in-display fingerprint sensor and a punch-hole design.
The cameras department includes the same 64-megapixel primary sensor, followed by two 8-megapixel lenses and a single 2-megapixel lens. Here, the periscope module was pulled off from Nova 7, thus results only up to 5X optical zoom. Upfront, there’s a single 32-megapixel camera stuffed into the punch-hole.
This handset too is powered by a similar 4000 mAh battery and Kirin 985 SoC and has 8GB RAM with either 128GB or 256GB storage. It runs on Android 10 based EMUI 10.1 and is available in the same color variants as Nova 7 Pro. Finally, it’s priced at ¥2,999 (approx. $424) for 8GB RAM + 128GB storage and ¥3,399 (approx. $480) for 8GB RAM + 256GB storage variant.

The last in the series, Huawei Nova 7 SE is a toned-down version of its counterparts and shows the difference in the camera, chipset, and display significantly.

It runs on Kirin’s 820 SoC, which still supports 5G and has 8GB of RAM with either 128GB or 256GB of storage, with support of expansion slot.

Well, we expected Huawei to show its Harmony OS now through this Nova 7 series launch, but the handsets are told to run on EMUI bloatware based on Android 10. Thus, we should wait for future Huawei phones to experience the first taste of Harmony OS, the in-house developed Operating System of Huawei. Further, Huawei has also announced to offer a three-month free trial of its Huawei Music in several European countries.
