Nova series has been one of the most appreciated mid-range series by Huawei. Be it Nova 3i or 5i, 5i Pro, all of the Nova phones are equally acclaimed. And to continue the legacy, Huawei has added another smartphone to Nova family-line; Huawei Nova 5T. Given the specs and hardware the Huawei Nova 5T serves on the plate, the price in Nepal is Rs. 53,900. And to be honest, this surely put the Nova 5T among one of the best smartphones to buy for Rs. 50,000-ish in Nepal.
3D Holographic Design and Punch-hole Display
Starting with the color variants, the Nova 5T comes in three different colors— Black, Crush Blue, and Midsummer Purple. The back panel of all these three color variants shine in stunning 3D hologram patterns, giving depth and bit of gradients depending upon the angle the light hits it. Other than the mesmerizing color, the back panel is decorated with quad-camera array; three placed vertically on the top-left corner and one right by it. Speaking of the build quality, the phone delivers it with dual glass (both on the front and the back) and aluminum frame body.
On the right, you will find a volume rocker button and a power button that also acts as a side-mounted AI fingerprint scanner. And that brings to cleaner left edge with only SIM card slot. Moreover, the bottom of the device comprised of a USB Type-C charging port and a single bottom-firing speaker grille with no sign of 3.5mm headphone jack.
The fascia of the Nova 5T is of 6.26-inch 1080-by-2340 IPS LCD display with 19.5:9 aspect ratio and 412 PPI. To improve more immersiveness, this FHD+ display is aided by a punch-hole camera cutout and moved from the obtrusive notches. However, on the bottom, there is significantly a larger chin.
Cameras near to the best
Quad-cameras setup has become so go-to choice to make a premium mid-range smartphone, and Nova 5T is no different. The handset rocks quad cameras on the back, combination of 48MP + 16MP + 2MP + 2MP. Where the 48MP is a primary sensor of f/1.8 aperture, a 16MP is a wide-angle lens with f/2.2 aperture, a 2MP is depth sensor of f/2.4 aperture for portrait shots, and another 2MP sensor of f/2.4 for macro photography. Speaking of videography, the Nova 5T can record 2160p videos at 30 frames-per-second, and 1080p videos at 30/60 frames-per-second.
And on the front, the camera cut-out houses a 32MP selfie shooter of f/2.0 aperture with HDR support and record 1080p videos at 30 fps. Good thing for the vloggers out there, as though the smartphone lacks OIS on the rear cameras, both the front and the rear cameras can take pretty stable videos with its gyro-EIS support.
Performance on the par with Huawei P30 Pro
Honestly, this mid-range smartphone doesn’t sound like one when the performance is the concern, and that’s for good. Because the Nova 5T is powered by the same mighty in-house Kirin 980 chipset that powers the Huawei’s flagship P30 Pro. The 7nm manufacture SoC is aided by the Mali-G76 MP10 graphics unit.
Wait, that’s not all, the Nova 5T comes in two 6GB and 8GB of RAM variants, and three 128GB, 256GB, and 512GB storage variants. Though the Android 10 released, you’ll find the EMUI 9.1 based on Android 9.0 (Pie) running the device out of the box.
Under the hood, the Nova 5T packs considerable larger 3750mAh battery that supports 22.5W fast charging. This gets better with the 50 percent charge in 24 mins (company claimed).
|The Good||The Bad|

|Mesmerizing design and build quality||IP rating would have been better|
