Huawei releases moodboard highlighting the inspirations behind the hotly anticipated nova and nova plus handsets

Born to reflect an aspirational generation that seeks to get the most out of life, Huawei Consumer Business Group has today revealed the inspirations behind the new nova series handsets.

The nova series flawlessly combines style and functionality like no other and this moodboard offers an exclusive look at the design inspiration behind Huawei’s hotly anticipated smartphone range. It is clear that Huawei’s elite designers have taken inspiration found in architecture around us, with a clear focus on curved, ergonomic design. The exquisite designs feature graceful contoured surfaces that join together seamlessly to deliver a tactile and visual experience that fits perfectly in users’ hands.

Huawei strongly believes in pushing the boundaries of what is possible in making technology beautiful and aspiring to the highest aesthetic through stunning craftsmanship in everything it does.

Richard Yu, CEO, Huawei Consumer Business Group, commented: “Our designers have created beautiful devices that meet the needs of our increasingly demanding lifestyles. nova and nova plus deliver much more than customers might expect, but exactly what they deserve. These handsets will allow users to burn more brightly, to get the most out of each day and to enhance their lives with the best specifications and functionalities in the segment.”

Huawei nova offers an outstanding photography experience with incredible speed, depth and clarity and the 12MP rear camera delivers fantastic photography even in low-light. Meanwhile, the nova plus includes an incredible, segment-leading 16MP rear camera with image stabilisation giving photography enthusiasts the tools to capture the perfect moment to share with family and friends. Both devices boast a category-leading 8MP front camera to capture better selfies and document the world in any lighting condition. Immersive, full HD screens, with the biggest screen to body ratio in the segment, allow users to appreciate a perfect view on their world.

The Huawei nova series meets the demands of even the most power-hungry user. Featuring a best-in-category battery lifespan of up to two days, nova and nova plus balance longer standby times and powerful performance, giving you all the power you need to blaze away night and day.

Huawei’s leading 3D fingerprint sensor supports faster and more accurate unlocking for improved security and convenience so you never need worry about forgetting your pin ever again. The fingerprint sensor can be further personalised to control many of the phone’s functions, including photography, so taking the perfect selfie is literally at your fingertips.
