Potent class-defining performance with the Huawei nova 5T – Kirin 980 processor, 8GB RAM, 128GB storage, 6.26-inch FHD+ Fullview display and 3,750mAh battery 

While the saying that you get what you pay for generally holds true, the Huawei nova 5T upends that statement entirely as it comes with class-defining specifications that can go toe to toe with flagship class phones that are priced significantly higher than it without any compromise in its capabilities.

The Huawei nova 5T is built around the powerful Kirin 980 octacore processor that is the world’s first 7nm Mobile AI chipset. This power-packed processor is the very same one seen powering the likes of the Huawei P30 and P30 Pro which in turn confers many of the key performance benefits of these powerhouses to the nova 5T.

The Kirin 980 processor not only blends exceptional power and performance but where it tops the competition is the integration of a potent dual Neural Processing Unit (NPU) that enables it to tackle a multitude of important tasks in the background with A.I to intelligently enhance image quality, to improve and optimise phone performance and for more efficient battery usage. This is paired with a generous 8GB RAM and 128GB of storage to offer speedy performance to handle apps, games and more. 

It’s not just pure hardware that makes the nova 5T so desirable.The phone runs the latest Android 9.0 Pie operating system and is also powered by Huawei’s latest EMUI 9.1 user interface that packs a veritable shopping list of enhancements and quality of life improvements that make using the nova 5T a smooth and intuitive affair. Among the new features include incoming caller video so you’re able to view who’s calling you with a short video clip rather than just a generic name on your screen.

Another key feature that gamers would appreciate is GPU Turbo 3.0 mode which turbocharges your gaming experience by ensuring consistently high frame rates at high settings without any lag or dropped frames when playing selected games. Better yet, EMUI 9.1 is also able to handle the bane of gamers in a high-intensity Mobile Legends or PUBG match – incoming calls! You’re able to take a call even when you’re in the game without having to tab out or lose your connection to the match. 

Games and movies are a real treat too as the Huawei nova 5T has a huge 6.26-inch FHD+ resolution Fullview display, offering a massive amount of screen real estate that ensures you get a view to thrill.

All that power means jack if a phone lacks the endurance to power it at maximum performance through the day. Fortunately, the nova 5T integrate a generously sized 3,750mAh battery that ensures all day endurance even with intensive tasks. Where it excels though is that it has 22.5W SuperCharge tech that lets you get back up and at it with a 50% charge in just 30 minutes

All these high-powered features – the powerful Kirin 980 processor paired with generous amounts of storage and RAM, the intuitively smooth EMUI 9.1, GPU Turbo and the huge battery – make the nova 5T a powerful performer in every way. The fact that all this retails at just RM1,599 makes it a truly tempting proposition indeed.

Powerful 5 AI enhanced cameras to tackle shooting scenarios from low light to close-ups and AI HDR+ selfies too on the Huawei nova 5T

The cornerstone and often the key defining trait of a smartphone is the quality of its front and rear cameras. While many phones make concessions due to cost or the need to keep the chassis slim, the Huawei nova 5T manages to integrate not three, not four but five AI-enhanced cameras into its 7.9mm thin chassis.

The provision of the Kirin 980 and its dual NPU enable the nova 5T to tackle and deliver enhanced image quality in photography scenarios that would traditionally have required dedicated cameras.

The powerful Kirin 980 processor with its integrated dual NPU powers the Huawei nova 5T’s AI-enhanced cameras, allowing the phone to intelligently select the best settings for great shots every time.

The front 32-MP F/2.0 selfie camera enables users to capture beautifully lit portraits but the addition of AI enables the nova 5T to perform a unique trick that would traditionally have required a studio setup – 3D portrait lighting – where you can dynamically adjust selfies to have different lighting setups that can turn selfies into artistically pleasing masterpieces.

To ensure a seamlessly slick design, the nova 5T has breathtakingly slim bezels along with a tiny punch-hole for the 32-MP selfie camera to ensure that the front consists almost entirely of a luscious touchscreen.
