Huawei launches mid-range Nova series 5G phone in the UAE, price revealed

The smartphone comes with AppGallery, Huawei’s official app marketplace


The Huawei nova 7 5G is now available in the UAE, bringing 5G connectivity to the mid-range segment.

At Dhs1,799 (256GB storage), the nova 7 5G is about Dhs1,600 cheaper than the Samsung Galaxy S20. Huawei’s own flagship Mate P40 5G is selling for around Dhs3,300 in e-commerce platforms.

The 5G modem is integrated into the Kirin 985 5G SoC chipset. Huawei says the Kirin ISP 5.0 has 15 per cent improved throughput and efficiency to support intensive imaging algorithms such as BM3D and dual-domain noise reduction for eliminating artefacts in photos and videos.

The nova 7 5G comes with 8GB of RAM in addition to 256GB of internal storage.

The main camera architecture in the nova 7 5G features a 64MP quad-camera setup comprising a 64MP main camera, 8MP ultra-wide camera, 8MP telephoto camera and a 2MP Macro camera. The cameras support 4K hi-res video recording and 4K time-lapse photography.

The nova 7 5G features a large 4000mAh battery, and the 40W Huawei supercharge support lets users charge it back up to 70 per cent in just 30 minutes.

The smartphone comes pre-installed with AppGallery, Huawei’s official app marketplace. The app store includes new entertainment apps such as Huawei Video, Huawei Music and Huawei Reader. Customers can search for and download apps on Huawei’s growing app ecosystem directly from their home screen via Petal Search.

It is worth noting Huawei no longer has access to Google Mobile Services and related apps. Instead, the Chinese company is creating its app ecosystem from scratch and has launched incentives to attract developers to its platform.

At a recent conference held on July 23 in China, Huawei revealed that it now has reached 1.6 million developers worldwide, a number that is 76 per cent higher compared to last year.

The company also announced that the Huawei Mobile Services ecosystem has now reached 700 million users worldwide, which amounts to a growth of 32 per cent on an annual basis.

The company said its $1bn developer incentive programme announced in September last year has since provided support to 10,000 apps.
