Huawei Nova Plus: Pricing, availability and specifications

Alex Kidman 14 November 2016


Huawei’s mid-range Nova Plus will only be available in Australia for outright sale.

The Nova Plus is, as the name suggests, a somewhat larger phone with a 5.5 inch curved display (Huawei calls it "2.5D", if you like marketing terms), running on top of a Snapdragon 625 processor and 3GB of RAM. It’s an Android 6.0 device with an integrated 3340mAh battery that Huawei claims gives it up to 2.2 days of usage between charges. There has been a recent run of high battery capacity phones in the mid-range space of late, so we’ll be keen to see how it stacks up against, for example, the LG X Power that made its battery such a key part of its selling strategy.

Huawei has recently been pushing heavily on the camera side of the smartphone equation with phones like the Huawei P9 and soon-to-come Huawei Mate 9. The Nova Plus features a 16MP rear and 8MP front camera, although there’s no co-branding with Leica the way there is with the P9 or Mate 9.

The Huawei Nova Plus will be sold in Australia on an outright basis only through Harvey Norman and Officeworks for $549, which means it will have a lot of competition in the mid-range space. Stay tuned for a full review.
