Huawei has launched its latest Nova 11 series in China, featuring three phones, namely the Nova 11, 11 Pro, and 11 Ultra. All three phones come in a unique green color scheme and are powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 778G chipset, offering LTE cellular connectivity.
Let’s take a detailed look at the features and specifications of each phone in the Nova 11 series.
Huawei Nova 11 Pro and Ultra
The Nova 11 Pro and Ultra models are the high-end options in the series, offering two-way satellite messaging via the Beidou constellation, a feature that is not present in the standard Nova 11. The phones have a 6.78-inch 10-bit AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate and a 300Hz touch sampling rate. The resolution of the display is 2652 x 1200 pixels, and some variants have Kunlun Glass protection with slightly curved edges. The front-facing camera features a pill-shaped hole in the upper left corner to accommodate the dual selfie cameras.
The front-facing camera setup includes a 60MP wide camera with a 100-degree field of view and an 8MP camera with 2x optical zoom for portrait photography. At the back of the devices, there are three more cameras, highlighted by a 50MP primary camera with an aperture that can switch between f/1.4 and f/4.0, an RYYB sensor, and laser autofocus. Additionally, there is an 8MP ultra-wide camera and a ten-channel color temperature sensor that assists in adjusting the colors of the other two cameras.
The Nova 11 Pro and Ultra models are equipped with 4,500 mAh batteries that support 100W charging. The necessary adapter for charging is included in the retail box. Additional features include HarmonyOS 3.0 and vegan leather back on the Green and Black models, while the White and Gold models feature glass backs.
The Nova 11 Pro comes in two storage options of 256 GB and 512 GB, whereas the Nova 11 Ultra only comes with 512 GB storage. Prices for the Nova 11 Pro start from $510, but without the Kunlun Glass protection, which costs an additional $30. Doubling the storage capacity costs $582 but without the fancy glass protection. The Nova 11 Ultra is priced at $655, which includes Kunlun Glass protection and two-way satellite messaging at an additional cost of $70.
Huawei Nova 11
The standard Nova 11 model has a slightly smaller 6.7-inch diagonal display that is completely flat, but still with a 10-bit AMOLED panel with a 120Hz refresh rate. The back of the device contains the same 50MP + 8MP camera pair, as well as the color temperature sensor. On the front, the zoom selfie camera has been removed, leaving only the 60MP 100-degree field-of-view shooter with 4K video recording.
The battery capacity remains at 4,500mAh, but the charging is limited to 66W. Other connectivity options include Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.2 with BLE, and the user interface is HarmonyOS 3.0. The available color options for the device are Green, Black, White, and Gold, but all of them come with plastic on top.
The 128 GB version of the Huawei Nova 11 is priced at $363, while the 256 GB version is priced at $410.
