The Huawei Nova Plus is the latest android device from the Chinese smartphone giant. Intended for the mid-range market, its features could very well rival the company’s own line of high-end mobile gadgets.
Huawei unveiled the Nova and Nova Plus at the IFA earlier this year in Berlin, Germany. The company aimed to target both devices at consumers looking for an affordable device. According to GSM Arena, the Nova Plus is the “global version” of their own G9 Plus released in China previously. Apparently, this is common practice for the company.
While Huawei Nova Plus is not a flagship, it does have the distinction of being the one of company’s first devices with 4K video recording. In addition, it includes FM radio. Interestingly, the device also offers an impressive battery life from its 3,340mAh. Hence, it could possibly keep the phone going for more than two days.

The appearance of the Nova Plus is also quite impressive. The publication described it as a cross between the iPhone 6 Plus and the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+. Given these factors, the price could be worth it for Australians looking for a mid-range smartphone, according to Gizmodo.
