Huawei once again shows that they are capable of delivering two phones with exquisite design. We are talking about the new Huawei Nova 10 and Nova 10 Pro, two mid-range models that have been presented in China and offer exceptional features for their price range. As we already saw with the Huawei P50e, with which they share quite a lot, the new Nova is a perfect example that Huawei has a great taste at the aesthetic level and continues to excel in multiple sections.
This is what the Huawei Nova 10 and Nova 10 Pro offer, two mid-range models, as we see with their Snapdragon 778G processor, whose ultra-compact design and a high-level photographic section are unusual.

Dual front camera up to 60 megapixels and 100 W fast charging
The difference between the Pro and standard models is basically in size, with the Pro model being slightly larger and heavier, as well as in the front dual camera. Both the Huawei Nova 10 and Nova 10 Pro add OLED panels with FullHD+ resolution and 120 Hz refresh rate.
Inside, the Snapdragon 778G processor is added, manufactured in 6 nanometers and with 4G connectivity. This detail, not having 5G connectivity, can be understood in China, but in mid-2022 it may pose a problem for its expansion in international markets. Accompanying this chip we have 8 GB of RAM and storage of up to 256 GB.
The Nova 10’s battery stays at 4,000 and 4,500 mAh, along with 66W fast charging and 100W on the Pro model. Other models may offer more capacity, but these are excellent numbers for two models whose thickness remains at about 7 and 8 mm respectively, with a light weight that in the Nova 10 remains at 168 g.
In the photographic section, Huawei repeats with the Nova 10 what we already saw in its flagship, the P50. There is a 50-megapixel RYYB main sensor, accompanied by two other wide-angle and depth sensors. The striking thing on this occasion is we have it on the front.
The Huawei Nova 10 incorporates a 60-megapixel wide-angle front main sensor, under the hole in the screen. Far from staying there, Huawei is committed to further expanding the capabilities of the front camera with a secondary 8-megapixel sensor for portraits.
No surprise here with the software, less for a mobile that for the moment remains in the Chinese market. HarmonyOS 2.0 is the software in charge of the mobile. A modification of Android without Google services, where it bets on App Gallery and Huawei’s services.
