Ten days ago, Huaweiintroduced in its native China an inexpensive 4G smartphone Huawei nova 10z. But she did it without much love - she did not indicate the model of the chipset used. I then looked at this case and decided to postpone writing the news a bit. Now I dug deeper. And I decided that it’s better to write down the impressions from what I dug out as a keepsake.
I see four smartphones made in the samebody as the nova 10z. Those. with identical appearance and dimensions. Surprisingly, all four are made on different chipsets. Well, with cameras inconsistency. In chronological order:
- June 2021 Honor X20 SE on Dimensity 700. The only one of them all has support for 5G networks. Slower charging. Cameras 64+2+2 / 16 MP.
- July 2021 Huawei nova 8 SE Vitality Edition on Kirin 710A. Cameras 48+2+2 / 16 MP.
- August 2021 Honor Play 5T Pro on Helio G80. Slower charging. Cameras 64+2 / 16 MP.
- May 2022 Wiko T50 on Helio G85. Cameras 64+8+2 / 16 MP.
The presence in this series of devices from Wiko, of course,immeasurably surprising. And, even more interesting, this is the only smartphone of the four that has exactly the same set of cameras as the Huawei nova 10z. (The set is standard - the main camera, wide-angle, macro).
About the chipset used in Huawei nova 10zthere is still no reliable information. I even tried looking for hieroglyphic reviews. Alas, while with them as with mushrooms in the surrounding forests - empty. In many news and in many catalogs it is written that there is HiSilicon Kirin 710A. But, the impression is that this people simply writes according to anology. Since Huawei was too shy to name the chipset, it means that there is an ancient Kirin 710A.
However, it doesn't matter. Kirin 710A, Helio G80 and Helio G85 are all chipsets of the same class. We are waiting for 200-250 thousand points in AnTuTu.
About the rest of the characteristics.
All is well with memory. 8 GB operational, 128 or 256 GB permanent. Support for memory cards, apparently, no.
Screen with a diagonal of 6.6″ (105 cm²). The matrix type is not specified, something IPS-like. The resolution is high, 1080×2400 (399 ppi). There is no increased refresh rate.
A fairly modest battery for today, only 4000 mAh. But charging is fast, 40 watts.
There is no support for 5G networks, there is no NFC module. The fingerprint scanner is located on the side face.
¥1,599 (₽13,700, $229) and ¥1,799 (₽15,400, $258) at launch for 8+128 and 8+256 GB versions, respectively.
