Huawei’s new Android phone arrives in South Africa next week

Huawei’s much-lauded Mate 30 series doesn’t appear to be coming to South Africa anytime soon but that’s not stopping the company from bringing a new Android-powered handset to the country.

The new Nova 5T was able to get Google certification before the US ban went into effect which is why it comes with all your favorite Google apps and services straight out of the box.

While it’s not the “everything but the kitchen sink” handset device that the Mate 30 Pro is, it’s definitely no slouch and is able to hold its own against flagships like P30, LG G8S and Samsung’s premium A series devices and the S10e.

Like the S10e, the Nova 5T has a notchless (albeit with a single hole punch) display and a side-mounted fingerprint reader but that’s where the similarities end. Huawei’s handset has a 6.4-inch FHD+ display, a 32 MP selfie camera with f/2.0 aperture adorning the front of the handset while a quad-camera setup adorns the back of the device.

Internally the 5T is powered by a Kirin 980 chipset with Dual-NPUs, 8GB RAM, 128GB storage and a 3750mAh battery.

Huawei hasn’t released pricing of the 5T yet but according to Cellucity, it will cost R599p/m on contract.

Full specs can be found on the Huawei South Africa site.
