During the International Franchise Association in Berlin two weeks ago, Huawei had introduced two new smartphones for this year. Being the company’s new generation of smartphones that mix premium and midrange along with qualities of a flagship smartphone, the Huawei Nova Plus is one of the two smartphones that will deliver its users a whole new Android experience. Finally replacing the company’s Honor devices, both the Nova and Nova Plus are said to offer premium services to users despite having a step behind the P lineup when compared with looks. If it isn’t that obvious, the company’s Nova Plus brand is the international version of Huawei G9 Plus that was released in China last month. Technically speaking, doing such a thing isn’t a new or extraordinary strategy at all.
Featuring a 5.5-inch 1080p resolution display, the Nova Plus contains an enhanced 2.5 dimensional glass screen. However, it is somehow obvious that the scratch problem from the Huawei P9 isn’t resolved yet. Needless to say, you can easily scratch the screen if you’re not that careful. Maybe this is because of the fact that the Nova Plus will be available at a midrange price, which is somewhat acceptable. What’s really fascinating about this one though, is its front camera’s new 4K HD recording feature. And having an FM Radio is also a plus since such feature isn’t available in most smartphones these days.
When it comes to buildup, the Nova Plus is more related to the Mate rather than the promoted P9. So if you’re looking for a phablet having such good looks, you won’t get disappointed when you own a Nova Plus. Made of high-quality aluminum, the Nova Plus’ metal case is very durable. Enhanced signal can also be expected since compared to the previous model, the Nova Plus has a gold-plated antenna setup that boost performance.
