Three smartphones were launched two days ago by Huawei in an event that took place in China. These smartphones are the Huawei Nova 6 SE, Huawei Nova 6, and Huawei Nova 5G. Huawei Nova 6 price is 3199 yuan.
I’m going to give a complete review of Huawei Nova 6 for now and as for the Nova SE and Nova 5G will be posted in the Short reviews section.
Huawei Nova 6 is the successor of Nova 5 that was released some months ago. The most attractive things about Huawei Nova 6 series are the design and the camera.

DESIGN & DISPLAY OF HUAWEI NOVA 6
Recent Huawei phones have all-glass designs that give the phones a premium feel that matches their expensive sticker prices. With the Huawei Nova 6, Huawei has stuck to the same idea, leading to a phone that looks great–and still maintains the standard 3.5 mm headphone jack.
The smartphone may not marvel at the display (Still LCD), but the camera is a completely different story. The 6.57 inches screen has an FHD resolution of 1080 x 2400 pixels, a 20:9 ratio (~401 PPI density) — and supports the HDR video standard, meaning you will see darker blacks and vibrant colors when viewing HDR-friendly content in places like YouTube and Netflix. It’s great, beautiful, and responsive. A Corning Gorilla Glass is included on the display screen which definitely comes with a 2.5D glass that can save the phone from scratches or slight unintended falls.

Huawei avoided putting a Notch into any of its Nova 6 series, instead, they went straight into punch-hole display style. But the display screen is the LTPS LCD panel instead of the superior OLED🤦♂️. The ultrasonic fingerprint sensor is side-mounted.
Because of its colorful body, the Huawei Nova 6 stands out from other phones as it comes in a range of gradient colors: Black, Blue, Red, and Provence models.
CAMERA OF HUAWEI NOVA 6
One of the biggest reasons to buy the Huawei Nova 6 is the camera package and its triple-camera (Main). The main camera is a 40 MP (27 mm, f/1.8) wide-angle, an 8 MP (80 mm, f/2.4) telephoto with x3 optical zoom, and an 8 MP (16 mm, f/2.4) ultra-wide lens. The front-facing camera has a 32 MP (f/2.0, 26mm ) wide sensor plus an ultra-wide 8 MP (f/2.2, 17mm) lens with a more advanced bokeh mode that works well with selfies and even with dim lighting.
Nova 6 is an excellent choice for selfie photographers who want the low-light flash or the Bokeh effect well enhanced. With good exposure, great detail and low noise the lens increases the brightness to highlight the subject and produces strong effects. Photos of the Bokeh mode display a good depth approximation and a smooth blurred gradient with only minor errors.
PERFORMANCE & BATTERY
It’s a big phone with a big display, so perhaps it’s no surprise it can pack up to 8 GB of RAM. It also has a storage capacity of 128GB and uses the latest HiSilicon Kirin 990 processor (7 nm).
The latest chip includes a combo of up to 2×2.86 GHz Cortex-A76 & 2×2.09 GHz Cortex-A76 & 4×1.86 GHz Cortex-A55 . Huawei has chosen a Mali-G76MP16 operating at 820MHz in terms of GPU.
Huawei continues to use EMUI to its devices which are based on the Android Operating system. As for the Nova 6, it rocks Andriod 10.
The device comes with 4100 mAh non-removable Li-Po battery and it supports 40W fast charging.

That brings us to the big question — do you need an Android luxury phone in the first place? If you look at the quality of Nova 5T which costs less than Nova 6, and yet offers a fairly slick user experience, you start wondering. If low light photography is an important requirement then you are on the go to buy Nova 6.
