Honor 20 Could Launch as Huawei Nova 5T in Some Markets including Thailand
Huawei Nova 5 series debuted in China last month, including the Nova 5, Nova 5 Pro, and Nova 5i. Last week, the company expanded the range by launching the Nova 5i Pro. But, now the company may soon include Huawei Nova 5T on its Nova 5 line-up.
The Huawei Nova 5T, bearing the model number YAL-L21, has received certification from Thailand’s NBTC. Interestingly, the Honor 20 bearing the same model number, i.e., YAL-L21, has launched recently in several markets, including India, Russia, the UK, France, Germany, Malaysia, Italy, Netherlands, Poland, and Spain.
Both phones share the same model number, and we have seen Honor phones rebranding under the brand of the parent company, i.e., Huawei. So, we expect the company to launch the Honor 20 as Huawei Nova 5T in some markets, including Thailand.
Now, the question is the existence of the Huawei Nova 5T Pro. Yes, this is also possible. Last month, we saw Honor 20 Pro/ Huawei Nova 5T Pro and Honor 20/ Huawei Nova 5T on the Google Play supported device list with model names YAL-L41 and YAL-L21, respectively. But, as of now, the Honor 20 as Huawei Nova 5T is confirmed for the Thailand Market.
The specifications of the Huawei Nova 5T will be similar to the globally available Honor 20 phone. The Nova 5T sports a 6.26-inch full-HD+ All-View display with a 19.5:9 aspect ratio with a resolution of 1080×2340 pixels. HiSilicon Kirin 980 SoC powers it coupled with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of inbuilt storage. It runs Android 9 Pie OS with Magic UI 2.1 on top of it.
For photography, the Nova 5T packs a quad rear camera setup consisting of a 48-megapixel primary sensor (f/1.8), a 16-megapixel secondary sensor (f/2.2) with a super-wide-angle lens, a 2-megapixel depth-sensor (f/2.4) and a 2-megapixel sensor (f/2.4). There is a punch-hole selfie camera that sports a 32-megapixel sensor ( f/2.0) with 3D Portrait Lighting support, AI Camera, Ultra Clarity mode, and Color mode.
The device is backed by a Non-removable Li-Po 3750 mAh battery, and it supports 22.5W fast battery charging that charges 50% in 24 minutes.
