Huawei Nova 5T: Price, Specs, Features and Best deals

It’s the second month of 2020 and a time to forget about all the phones of the past and look at what’s new. For Huawei lovers in Ghana, that would be the Huawei Nova 5T smartphone.

The Nova 5T, which was recently launched in Ghana comes with 5 cameras!; the highlight of this beautiful device. Yes, you read right.

The 5 Cameras consist of a 32 Megapixel punch-hole selfie camera and a quad (4) rear camera setup.

The 4 cameras at the rear of the Huawei Nova 5T are made up of the following:

  • a 48 Megapixel main camera
  • a 16 Megapixel ultra-wide camera
  • a 2 Megapixel macro camera and
  • a 2 Megapixel depth camera

The new device from Huawei also has a 6.26 HD+ display and runs on the flagship Kirin 980 chipset. With 8 GB of Ram, it’s a bit disappointing to see it run on Android 9; but that doesn’t take away from the phone’s amazing capabilities.

Features of the Huawei Nova 5T

Design and Display

When it comes to the design of the Huawei Nova 5T the device comes with glass on both the front and the back and has metal sides.

For most of the design, it follows on the path of the Huawei P30 Pro especially when it comes to the arrangement of the four rear cameras (vertically placed).

One very unusual design we see in the 5T is the placement of the fingerprint sensor. The sensor, which is used to unlock the phone (when enabled) is conveniently embedded in the power button on the right side of the phone.

Due to this design change, unlocking the phone is more natural and works faster than if you had the sensor behind the phone or in the display.

The display of the phone, as we said earlier is a solid 6.26-inch full HD+ with a punch-hole selfie camera placement.

As with most punch hole camera’s a total full screen could mean some UI elements may not show. However, there is an option to disable the punch-hole in the phone’s settings.

The Huawei Nova 5T has a 6.26-inch full HD+ display with a punch-hole for the selfie camera.

Out of the box, the is a screen protector installed on the device. For added security though, you could purchase a tempered glass specifically for the Huawei Nova 5T due to the cutout at the top that contains sensors.


The Huawei Nova 5T comes with a 3,750mAh battery. For most people, this might seem very small but due to software optimisations, this should be able to last you for a day for average users.

For gaming and other heavy users, you should keep the charger that came with the phone with you to take advantage of the phone’s 22.5W fast charging technology called Huawei SuperCharge.


You can’t talk about the Huawei Nova 5T without talking about the five cameras it backs. There are 4 cameras at the back and another one at the front.

The main camera among the quad setup at the back is a 48 Megapixel camera that brings out a 12 Megapixel although there is an option to change it to shoot an AI-assisted 48MP photo.

You can achieve very beautiful photos when you have the AI module of the Huawei 5T cameras turned on.

The second camera is a 16 Megapixels camera specifically for wide shots. This camera can help you shoot more of the scene in a single photo without the need to move around. The quality of this camera resembles that of the 48MP main camera.

The other cameras are a 2 Megapixel camera that enables you to shoot photos as close as 4 centimetres to the subject when you choose the Super Macro shooting mode in the camera.

Lastly, there is another 2 Megapixel Camera that helps in portrait mode to take photos with nicely blurred backgrounds.

The Nova 5T camera is capable of recording videos at 4K resolution and 30 frames per second.

Performance and Storage

The Nova 5T is powered by Huawei’s own Kirin 980 chipset. This same chip is what is found on the flagship Huawei P30 and P30 pro.

It’s no surprise that the 5T is expected to perform like a flagship. You should experience close to no lag on the phone and launching and switching between apps should be very seamless.

There is no micro SD port or any form of additional storage on the Huawei 5T but that’s understandable considering the 128 gigabytes of storage the phone comes with.
