When Honor 20 Pro received the green light from Google Play two months ago, we noticed that the same device was also certified under a different name. The Honor 20 Pro was also referred to as the Nova 5T Pro, while the standard model was also referred to as the Nova 5T.
The Huawei Nova 5T has reappeared and this time is in the Enterprise Solutions directory for Android.
From the list, the Huawei Nova 5T looks just like the current Honor 20. It has a full-screen display and a hole for punching in the upper left corner. In terms of specifications, the Android site lists the device with a 5.5 ″ screen, 8GB RAM and it comes with 128GB and 256GB storage.
Obviously the specifications are not completely accurate. In this day and age, Huawei is unlikely to launch a mid-range smartphone with a screen smaller than 6.0 ″. If you look at the Nova 5 series, they are all 6.39 ″ or 6.4 ″.
The Roland Quandt serial leak has confirmed that the Nova 5T is essentially a rebranded honor 20. He insists it will come with a 6.26 ″ Full HD + display and runs on a Kirin 980 processor. He added that specifications revealed by the Thai distributor show that the device will come with 8 GB RAM and 128 GB memory. Like the Honor 20, the 5T will also include a quad camera setup with 48MP + 16MP + 2MP + 2MP sensors.
The Huawei Nova 5T has not yet been officially announced, but we think it can be sold in countries that don't offer the Honor 20. Honor 20 with 6GB RAM and 128GB storage is currently sold at RM1699 while the Honor 20 Pro with 8GB RAM and 256GB storage goes for RM2 299.
The Nova 5 series will be coming to Malaysia soon, but there is currently no accurate timeline.
