The Huawei P20 and P20 Pro are now available in Australia

Matt Sayer 18 May 2018 NEWS

Huawei's latest high-end handsets are accompanied by two new budget-friendly options, the nova 3e and the nova 2lite.

If you're looking for a premium smartphone that doesn't carry the Apple or Samsung branding, your choices are typically fairly slim. Today, though, you have two brand new options to consider courtesy of Huawei: the Huawei P20 and the Huawei P20 Pro.

Powered by the Kirin 970 system-on-a-chip, both P20 handsets are solid performers in the high-end mobile space. A 5.8-inch LCD screen graces the front of the P20, while the P20 Pro packs a larger 6.1-inch OLED display capable of pumping out brighter and sharper visuals.

The real highlight of Huawei's P20 line is the camera. According to DxOMark, the benchmarking standard of the camera industry, both the P20 and the P20 Pro top all contenders in terms of smartphone camera performance, with the P20 Pro edging out the regular P20 thanks to its 40MP rear sensor and triple-camera array.

Of course, with all that tech crammed inside, Huawei's latest handsets don't come cheap. The P20 retails for $999 while the P20 Pro sits at $1099. Both are available right now from Mobileciti, while the P20 Pro can also be picked up from JB Hi-Fi and Harvey Norman.

The Huawei nova 3e


If $1000 is a little too steep for you, Huawei has you covered there, too. The Huawei nova 3e and Huawei nova 2lite are also launching today for the more budget-friendly prices of $399 and $299 respectively.

Despite the lower price tags, neither handset is a chump in the performance department. The nova 3e packs a 16MP/2MP dual-camera set-up, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage and a 5.84-inch full HD display, while the nova 2lite boasts a 13MP/2MP camera set-up, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of storage and a 5.99-inch display.

Both handsets also support unlocking via facial recognition or fingerprint, and each comes with a 3000mAh battery that Huawei claims will last for 13 hours of video playback or 58 hours of music playback.

The Huawei nova 3e and nova 2lite are both available for purchase right now from MobileCiti, JB Hi-Fi, Harvey Norman or Big W.
