Huawei will mark its return to IFA 2022 in Berlin with the global launch of its Nova 10 series and a few other products that it hopes will win some customers over.
The Huawei Nova 10 smartphones are mid-range smartphones powered by the Snapdragon 778 chipset. While this phone will normally come in a 5G version, Huawei still won’t be able to take advantage of Qualcomm’s 5G technology, which potential buyers should be aware of. Otherwise, these phones both look and sound like very decent mid-range options.
In terms of design, both are practically identical, with almost the same specifications. Both the Nova 10 and Nova 10 Pro have curved FHD+ OLED displays with 120 Hz refresh rates and 300 Hz touch sampling rates. The difference here is size, with the base model coming in at 6.67-inches and the Pro model in a 7.78-inch. Included in that screen is a punch with a whopping 60MP selfie camera that can capture 4K video, with an additional 8MP portrait camera on the Pro.
The primary rear camera for both phones is a 50MP unit, accompanied by an 8MP ultra-wide angle camera and a depth sensor.
The Nova 10 has a relatively mid-range 4,000mAh battery, boosted to 4,500mAh on the Pro model. Wired charging speeds are 66W and 100W respectively.
In addition to the phones, Huawei has a new tablet with an 11-inch 2560×1600 OLED screen and a refresh rate of 120 Hz. Depending on the model, the tablet is powered by 4G versions of the Snapdragon 888 or the Snapdragon 870, with up to 512GB of internal storage. Both versions have a battery of 8,300 mAh, with 66 W and 40 W charging respectively.
On the back is a 13MP primary sensor and 8MP ultra-wide angle camera, while the front has a 16MP video camera.
Finally, the company is launching the Huawei Watch D as a “certified medical device”. The watch features heart tracking, an SpO2 sensor, medically certified electrocardiogram (ECG) and can even measure blood pressure, which is rare even on the best Android smartwatches.
Huawei didn’t share pricing and availability details right away, but we’ll update this article once we know more. The company is expected to hold its IFA 2022 keynote on September 3 at 10:30 a.m. (CET).
