Huawei’s nova 7 series will reportedly launch on April 23 and a leaked ad for the phones offers a hazy look at their design. The ad stars Chinese star Jackson Yee (Yi Yangqianxi) who will be the face of the campaign. Yee ranked #8 on the Forbes China Celebrity 100 list last year.
As for the phone itself, it will look like another star from China – the Huawei P40 Pro. You can just about make out the curved screen of the phone and the dual punch hole in the upper left corner.
On the back is a rectangular camera bump, though leaks so far have not managed to nail down the camera hardware.
Previous info from the same leakster, Digital Chat Station, suggests that we will be seeing three different models on Thursday next week – Huawei nova 7 SE, nova 7 and nova 7 Pro, which will use the Kirin 820, 985 and 990 5G, respectively.
This sounds a lot like the upcoming Honor 30 phones (set to be unveiled tomorrow), which will also use the three HiSilicon 5G chips. Those three will bring some pretty impressive cameras, but it remains to be seen if this will carry over to the new nova series
Anyway, the Huawei nova 7 SE was already spotted running Geekbench, confirming the Kirin 820 chipset. It is expected to have a 6.5″ 1080p+ display, a 64MP camera on the rear and 22.5W wired fast charging. Little is known about the other two nova phones, however.
The nova 7 is expected to be the most affordable model, priced around CNY 2,000-3,000 ($285-$425), followed by the SE model at CNY 3,000 ($495) or so and topped by the Pro at CNY 3,500-4,000 (up to $565).
By the way, the Huawei nova 7i is already official and is essentially China’s version of the Huawei P40 Pro.
