Huawei nova Y70 Plus is a very strange semi-announcement

Huawei launches smartphone on South African websitecalled nova Y70 Plus. Showed up in every detail. Almost. The cost, dimensions, supported frequencies are known. Everything is known. Except for what chipset is worth here.

You probably know that about the samestrangeness loves to suffer Samsung. Often, you also have to suffer in order to determine the brand of the processor. But they usually give at least some information. About the number of cores, about the frequency. Some epithets lead (enthusiastic, of course). Not a word is said about the processor here. At all. It's like he doesn't exist at all.

OK. Let's talk about known features.

With memory, everything is rather modest. Only 4 GB of RAM. Permanent - 64 or 128 GB.

The screen has a slightly non-standard diagonal of 6.75″ (110 cm²). The resolution is low, only 720×1600 (260 ppi).

Here the battery is good - 6000 mAh. Yes, and with a fairly fast charge of 22.5 watts.

Cameras. Classic simple set. Front resolution 8 MP. A trio of 48 + 5 + 2 MP perched on the rear side - the main camera, wide-angle, depth sensor.

There is Type-C and a side fingerprint scanner. There is no NFC module. And - here's the surprise of surprises - Wi-Fi is single-band!

Those. summing up the known characteristics, we get a rather mediocre device. Well, maybe not a frank state employee, but not much better either.

And now - attention - the price!R5499 (₽26100, $355) for the 4+128 GB version. It's actually not that cheap. And, since the rest of the characteristics are so modest, then maybe at least they put a more powerful processor in this smartphone, huh?
