Huawei has a couple of new smartphones heading to stores real soon. While the issue between the US and China continues on whether Huawei can use Android as their operating system, we can only hope it will get resolved in time as newer models need the OS to be considered a preferred choice among buyers.
The Nova 5i was spotted in the AnTuTu benchmarking which indirectly confirmed that the phone is close to the launching date. Smartphone manufacturers follow a habit of testing their phones in popular apps like GeekBench and AnTuTu. The scores acquired by single core and multi-core processing will usually give a good idea of how powerful these smartphones are even before their official launch.
In the recent past, the Huawei phone was spotted on GeekBench as expected and it was tested with the model number GKL-LX1. It does not need magic to deduce that it is the same phone when we spotted the same model number in the AnTuTu listing now. Apart from being able to identify the performance capability of the phone, we also got to know the hardware specifications along with the display resolution being used in this possibly mid-range device from Huawei.
Before we get into the scoring, the hardware specifications include a display that has a resolution of 2310 x 1080. Under the hood, it is powered by the Kirin 710 processor coupled with 4 GB of RAM. As with most other smartphones getting released these days, the manufacturer provides 64 GB of storage space. For an average user, this should be more than enough and should allow one to store all the apps and games among other stuff they would like to keep saved offline.
The AnTuTu score is almost on par with what GeekBench scored the phone. The Nova 5i has managed to score 131,715 on an average. It also runs on Android 9 OS, the latest operating system from Google but will have EMU skin wrapped on top of it to create the Huawei experience that some users love to have.
Based on the leaks that are out so far, it sounds like Huawei Nova 5i will get launched with different names according to the market where it is being sold. It is to be named as P20 Lite 2019 edition in some regions. The phone features a pretty large display measuring at 6.4-inches with a punch-hole front camera. It is great to see everyone moving out of the notch culture and providing as much screen real estate as possible. It has a 16 MP front camera and a 24 MP rear camera, coupled with another 8 MP and 2 MP cameras to provide a triple camera setup. It is powered by a 4,000 mAh battery.
