Huawei Nova 6 & Nova 6 5G: Specifications & Features
Both Huawei Nova 6 & 6 5G come with a 6.57-inch AMOLED panel with Full-HD+ resolution and a punch-hole at the top of the display to house a dual selfie camera setup. For security, they feature a fingerprint reader mounted on the side power button. Both of them are powered by a Kirin 990 chipset, but only the Nova 6 5G has a 5G modem paired with the processor.
The standard version only has a single configuration with 8GB RAM and 128GB storage, while the 5G model is offered in either 8GB RAM / 128GB storage variant or 8GB RAM / 256GB model.

At the back, they boast triple cameras, which are a 40MP primary sensor, an 8MP snapper with an ultra-wide lens, and an 8MP telephoto lens with 3x optical zoom and Optical Image Stabilization (OIS). For selfies, it packs a 32MP primary snapper and an 8MP ultra-wide camera, both of which are housed in an oval cut-out on top of the display. The Huawei Nova 6 & 6 5G's selfie cameras are rated with 100 points in the DxOMark test, helping the phone become the best selfie smartphone in the DxOMark ranking. Software-wise, they both run on EMUI 10 out of the box, which is based on Android 10.
