HUAWEI nova 5T – Flagship Performance With 5 AI Cameras!

The HUAWEI nova 5T is categorised as a mid-range smartphone from a price perspective. However, it boasts a number of flagship-class features that makes it a STEAL!

Find out why the HUAWEI nova 5T is a great option for those who want flagship features and an exquisite design, at only RM 1,599!


HUAWEI nova 5T : Powered By Kirin 980!

Unbelievably, the HUAWEI nova 5T runs on the same Kirin 980 platform that powers flagship devices like the HUAWEI P30 Pro, the HONOR 20 Pro and the HUAWEI Mate 20.

The Kirin 980 is a flagship-class platform that uses a new tri-cluster architecture with :

  • two 2.6 GHz Cortex-A76 cores for high-performance boost,
  • two 1.92 GHz Cortex-A76 cores for sustained high-performance, and
  • four 1.8 GHz Cortex-A55 cores for background or less-intensive workloads.

The Kirin 980 also comes with a 24-core ARM Mali-G76 GPU and two NPUs, which double its graphics and AI performance.

On top of that, it supports LTE Category 21 download speeds of up to 1.6 Gbps, as well as dual frequency GPS (L5 + L1) for 10X more accurate positioning.


8 GB Memory + 128 GB Storage!

Also surprising for a mid-range device is its 8 GB of LPDDR4x memory. That is A LOT of memory at this price point.

Its 128 GB internal storage of the UFS 2.1 type is also on the high-side for a mid-range device.


HUAWEI nova 5T Boasts An Exquisite Design!

The HUAWEI nova 5T has a large 6.26-inch IPS display, with a Full HD+ resolution of 1080 x 2340 pixels.

Thanks to its ultra-small 4.5 mm camera cutout, it has an astounding 91.6% screen-to-body ratio!

For a better hand feel and grip, HUAWEI used a metal frame made out of aerospace-grade aluminium. It also boasts a 2.5D glass back, with a new 3D holographic effect.

Thanks to these painstaking attention to detail, the HUAWEI nova 5T looks and feels like an ultra-premium flagship smartphone! You have to try it out for yourself!


HUAWEI nova 5T Has 5 AI Cameras!

Featuring the latest punch hole design, the HUAWEI nova 5T boasts a very high-resolution 32 MP front AI camera.

In addition to a wide f/2.0 aperture, this front AI camera also has the ability to combine 4 pixels into one, for superior low-light 8 MP photos!

At the back, it boasts a four more AI cameras :

  • a 48 MP main camera with f/1.8 aperture
  • a 16 MP ultra-wide camera with f/2.2 aperture
  • a 2 MP macro camera with f/2.4 aperture
  • a 2 MP depth sensor with f/2.4 aperture

The 48 MP main camera defaults to a 12 MP mode, which combines four pixels to create a Super Pixel – delivering superior image quality with low noise levels. But you can switch it to the full 48 MP pixel mode too.

The 2 MP depth sensor does not actually take any photos. Rather, it lets the main camera better differentiate the subject from its background, allowing for more realistic software bokeh effects.

HUAWEI calls them AI cameras because they boast these AI features :

  • AI HDR+ algorithm for balanced exposure against backlight
  • Enhanced AI beautification algorithm
  • AI Image Stabilisation cancels out blurring caused by handshake
  • AIS Super Night Mode – combines up to 16 different exposures to create one magnificent night shot
  • Master AI – automatically identifies the scene and subject, and enhances the image


Battery + Fast Charging

The HUAWEI nova 5T has a large 3,750 mAh battery, which should last a full day of normal use.

Coupled with GPU Turbo 3.0, it will also help gamers play for hours on end.

For longer gaming sessions, you will be glad to know it supports 22.5 watt fast charging, even when some flagship smartphones still rely on slower fast charging technologies.

According to HUAWEI, you can recharge its battery by 50% in just 30 minutes!
