Huawei is one of the leading smartphone OEMs of the world. The company has now unveiled its latest mid-ranged offering known as the Nova in its home market, China. The smartphone comes with a decent hardware underneath, and a starting price of 2,099 CNY (Rs 20,800). The top end variant has been priced at 2,399 CNY or Rs 23,800, which makes this a pretty attractive handset overall.
The main distinction between the two models is the RAM capacity and storage. While the entry level version comes with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage, the high-end model is sporting 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage underneath. The storage aspect doesn’t really make much of a difference given that the Nova also comes with a microSD card slot. Given the low difference in pricing, one would be drawn towards the 4GB/64GB variant as compared to the base model.
We expect the handset to reach Indian shores fairly soon, although Huawei is yet to share details on that front.
