After months of leaks and teasers, Huawei finally unveiled its nova 6 lineup. The star of the show is the nova 6 5G which brings an oval punch-hole display alongside the flagship Kirin 990 chipset and a potent triple camera setup. Theres also the standard nova 6 which comes in an identical design but skips on the 5G connectivity and has a slightly smaller battery. The third entry is the midrange nova 6 SE which packs a quad-cam setup, Kirin 810 chipset and a generous 4,200 mAh battery.
