Huawei nova 5T officially available in South Africa

Huawei officially unveiled its latest nova 5T device on Friday, 1 November 2019. The device features premium Huawei innovations and advanced smartphone photographic capabilities.

The Huawei nova 5T launched in South Africa on Friday, 1 November.

“At Huawei, we pride ourselves on offering our customers the latest in innovation, and are committed to rewriting the rules of what’s possible with mobile devices,” says Akhram Mohamed, CTO at Huawei Consumer Business Group, South Africa.

“The Huawei nova 5T features Huawei’s latest innovations such as four rear AI-powered cameras, the premium Kirin 980 Dual NPU AI chipset, and our flagship EMUI 9.1 operating system, elevating the HUAWEI nova 5T to a status normally associated with our flagship devices.”

The rear quad-camera array combines AI-powered image semantic segmentation and partition optimisation technology to support the 48MP HD lens, 16MP wide-angle lens, 2MP macro lens, 2MP bokeh lens and 32 MP selfie Superstar lens with an unprecedented advantage over segment competitors.

The nova 5T features the Kirin 980 Dual NPU AI chipset – the world’s first 7nm mobile AI chipset.

Together with Huawei’s latest EMUI 9.1 operating system, 8GB of RAM, and its premier GPU Turbo 3.0 – Huawei’s hardware-software integrated graphics processing acceleration technology – the HUAWEI nova 5T provides the ideal gaming platform for mobile device gamers. It ensures not only lag-free fluid experiences but a full-frame gaming experience with reduced latency. Further, the device’s 6.26-inch Huawei Punch FullView display offers an immersive display on a wafer-thin 7.87mm thick body that weighs a mere 174 grams.

The nova 5T comes in two creative colour schemes – Crush Blue and Midsummer Purple.

Unlike previous nova models, the Huawei nova 5T is void of a rear fingerprint sensor, instead opting for a side-mounted fingerprint sensor to maintain the visual characteristics of the cover.

The nova 5T is available now on contract from the following service providers:

  • Vodacom – R599 Smart XS+ Plan
  • MTN – R599 MFMXS Plan
  • Telkom – R599 FREEME 1GB Plan
  • CELL C – R619 Pinnacle 2G Plan
