Announcement. Huawei nova 10 and nova 10 Pro - moderately expensive, weird, rich

Huawei has announced smartphones in its native Chinese market
Huawei nova 10
and
Huawei nova 10 Pro. The pro version is slightly larger, it has a slightly more powerful charge and has an additional front camera. But, in general, the devices are very close.

Handsome! With gold-plated camera island. How do you like this appearance?

In general, a strange couple turned out.Powerful enough, though not flagship hardware, top screens, insane charging. Some absolutely breathtaking front cameras. But there is no support for 5G networks. And the rear cameras do not inspire much optimism. There is no optical stabilization. Although the quality ... Who knows. Maybe good.

Well, software. Smartphones are not on Android, but on HarmonyOS.

And Huawei continues to do strange things onspecification pages. You may remember that for some of their latest models they didn't list the chipset name. The chipset was immediately named, but the amount of RAM was not indicated. According to information from Chinese stores, it seems to be 8 GB here. But it is not exactly. Permanent memory 128 or 256 GB. There is no support for memory cards.

The chipset is very decent. Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G with bitten-off support for 5G networks (which is actually there initially). In AnTuTu we are waiting for 500-550 thousand points.

OLED screens with refresh rates up to 120Hz. Judging by the pictures, pretty curved at the edges. The dimensions are impressive.
6.67″ (107 cm²) for nova 10 and 6.78″ (111 cm²) for firmware.
Resolution 1080×2400 (395 ppi) and 1200×2652 (429 ppi) respectively.

The front cameras have a completely indecent resolution of 60 MP. The nova 10 Pro has an additional “portrait” front camera with a resolution of 8 MP.

The set of rear cameras is quite trivial, 50 + 8 + 2MP - main, wide-angle, yes depth sensor. However, judging by the pictures, the main camera here is with an RYYB sensor. Perhaps we are talking about the Sony IMX700 sensor, which is used, in particular, in the Huawei P40 and its close relatives. But it is not exactly.

Batteries by modern standards are not too big. 4000 mAh for the younger device and 4500 mAh for the older one. But super-fast charging. 66 and 100 W respectively.

Other. There is NFC, the sixth Wi-Fi, Type-C. There is no standard audio output. What LTE frequencies are supported, the manufacturer did not indicate.

About money.

Huawei nova 10 at the start of sales will cost ¥2699 (₽23200, $431) and ¥2999 (₽25800, $479) for versions 8 + 128 and 8 + 256 GB, respectively.

Huawei nova 10 Pro is a thousand yuan more expensive. ¥3699 (₽31800, $591) and ¥3999 (₽34400, $639) for the same varieties.
