Huawei has launched new Nova 6 series smartphones today, as teased last month. There are three smartphones in this series; Nova 6, Nova 6 5G, Nova 6 SE. The difference between regular Nova 6 and it’s 5G variant is 5G connectivity. And the Nova 6 SE is sort of a mid-range smartphone with lowered down specs. So without further ado, let’s have a look at this Huawei Nova 6 series.
