Huawei introduced the Nova 5T smartphone – this is a Honor 20 with a different name and new body colors

So the company fuels sales, while continuing to be under US sanctions.

Huawei introduced in Russia a Nova 5T smartphone with a system of four rear cameras. In addition to the main camera, the device received ultra-wide-angle and macro-sensors, as well as a depth sensor. 

Nova 5T runs on a Kirin 980 processor, equipped with 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal. The smartphone received a 3750 mAh battery with the ability to quickly charge at 22.5 watts to 50% in half an hour.

The device is equipped with four cameras on the back and one front in the neckline instead of the “bangs”. The smartphone received a main sensor at 48 MP, a wide-angle at 16 MP, a macro camera and a depth sensor with a resolution of 2 MP, as well as a front sensor at 32 MP.

According to the characteristics and design, the Nova 5T completely repeats the smartphone of the subsidiary brand of Huawei – Honor 20, which was introduced in London on May 20. The only difference between the models was the changed colors of the case and rear panels.

Like the Honor 20, the Nova 5T case is made using multilayer technology that creates a “holographic 3D effect”. In Russia, the smartphone will be sold in colors of deep blue and summer purple. Moreover, in the latter case, the case will also be engraved in the form of a logo of the model, which will be visible in the light.

Nova 5T is not the first smartphone in recent years that Huawei has “re-released” under US sanctions. On September 6, in Berlin, the company showed a “redesign” of the P30 Pro, which also did not differ from the original model besides the back panel and two new colors.

On September 19, Huawei introduced the Mate 30 line – its first devices after the introduction of US sanctions. However, two months later, they never went on sale. Then the company announced plans to switch to its own ecosystem of Huawei Mobile Services instead of Google services and invest a billion dollars in the platform.

According to , at the end of November 2019, Huawei will release the Honor 20S in Russia, which externally and in terms of characteristics will repeat the P30 Lite. Interlocutors close to the situation told that the company intends to re-release old smartphones under new names until the spring of 2020. The new generation of smartphones P40 and Honor 30 will be released on the “free” version of Android (AOSP), where instead of Google services there will be Huawei applications.

Huawei has been under U.S. sanctions since May 2019. Due to restrictions, the company cannot purchase components from American companies and use their services. At the same time, in November, US authorities promised to grant Huawei exceptions for work in the United States.
