Large, Hi-Res Display
Smartphones are not just for communication, they’re for consuming content and that involves hi-res videos and photos, and webpages rich of content. That’s why the devices you see in the market pack large screens with high-resolution displays. Good thing the Huawei nova 7 5G a 6.53-inch OLED screen with Full HD+ resolution or 405ppi with an 83.8% screen-to-body ratio for an immersive viewing experience.
As one would expect the display is vibrant and sharp with excellent viewing angles and color reproduction. It’s even bright enough even when viewed under direct sunlight. Since it’s OLED, there’s an always-on display, and you can choose whichever design you want to put on it. For the punch hole, it’s placed on the upper left corner and is tiny enough to be hidden with a border by activating it inside Settings.
Huawei has always impressed users with its nova series by equipping them with powerful hardware that they’re almost close to being flagships. In the case of the nova 7 5G, it has a Kirin 985 5G SoC manufactured using TSMC’s 7nm process. It incorporates an octa-core CPU, Mali-G77 GPU, and proprietary dual-core NPU. It’s a flagship chip that sits just below the Kirin 990 5G found in the P40 series but still can output flagship performance. Paired to it is 8GB of RAM and fast 256GB of storage, which is enough for heavy users who want seamless multitasking.
The Huawei nova series is also known for being versatile shooters by sporting multiple camera lenses. The trend continues with the nova 7 5G with quad-rear cameras, consisting of a 64MP main, 8MP ultrawide, 8MP telephoto, and a 2MP macro. For selfies, it has a 32MP shooter. You get quirky features like AR Lens, Light Painting, Panorama, Pro (Manual mode), Moving Picture, Slow-mo, Timelapse, Super Night Selfie 3.0, Dual-View Video, and Stickers. Add to that the AI and image processing, the nova 7 5G is well-equipped to handle most shooting scenarios you can think of.
A few months ago, 5G connectivity is mostly found in more expensive flagship devices, but Huawei changed that with the nova 7 series. In June, Huawei released the nova 7 SE 5G for under PHP 20K. Then in July, they released the more powerful nova 7 5G at a competitive price as well. Given the support for the next-gen connectivity, your nova 7 5G is future-proofed, and there’s no need to change SIM cards. Once 5G becomes widely available, Nova 7 5G users will be able to take advantage of faster and more stable internet, maximize the features of the Huawei ecosystem, and utilize cloud services that are set to roll out in the near future like cloud gaming.
