Rethink your limits: Introducing the HUAWEI nova 5T

Huawei Australia has today released the Huawei nova 5T — a bold new smartphone that offers flagship performance, a class- leading 48MP Five AI Camera, 6.26” FullView display, and a long-lasting battery — all for a great price.

nova 5T has a versatile rear quad-camera setup, featuring a 48MP main sensor, 16MP ultra-wide sensor and 2MP macro and bokeh lenses. Huawei’s pioneering Super Night Mode and AI Image stabilisation ensure excellent shots in a full range of lighting scenarios, while the 32MP front-facing camera offers sharp images for selfies and video calls.

Visuals are impressive on the nova 5T thanks to vibrant colours and in-depth detail offered by the 6.26-inch Huawei Punch FullView display. AI-enhanced video editing tools are included to refine content on the go.

Managing Director of Huawei Consumer Business Australia, Larking Huang said, “Huawei is known for class-leading performance, photography and design, and we are thrilled to bring these features to even more users. With our lightning fast Kirin 980 chipset, long lasting battery and pro-grade camera, users will experience features to a standard expected with flagship models, all for an unbelievable price.”

Users can make the most of the device’s impressive features, with a large 3,750mAh battery providing enough power for a full day of heavy usage. For times when charging opportunities are limited, the included Huawei SuperCharge fast-charger offers 50 percent power in just 30 minutes.

Driven by the flagship-standard Kirin 980 chipset, the Huawei nova 5T is one of the most powerful smartphones available. Coupled with Huawei’s performance and efficiency enhancing Turbo 3.0 GPU, the device offers a smooth experience when powering games or using other memory-intensive apps.

The Huawei nova 5T is available in dual sim with two striking holographic colour schemes: Crush Blue and Black. Both versions feature a side-mounted finger-print sensor that make the devices as sleek as possible.
