Huawei will announce the Nova 6 5G on December 5, the same day HMD Global has scheduled for its next Nokia phone launch. However, the Nova 6 may not be the only Huawei phone launching on that day. It may also come along with another phone called the Nova 6 SE whose photo and key specs leaked today.
The leak comes from Huawei Club (@ClubHuawei) and Teme (@RODENT950) on Twitter. Both accounts are known for Huawei and Honor-related leaks.
The Nova 6 SE is the second Huawei phone with the SE suffix in its name. The first is the 2018 Huawei Mate SE which is actually a rebranded Honor 7X. However, Huawei is not the first manufacturer to use the SE suffix. Apple did so first in 2016 when it launched the popular iPhone SE.
The Nova 6 SE doesn’t only borrow part of its name from an Apple phone. Its design (read rear design) is practically an iPhone 11 Pro with an extra camera.
The leaked image shows the Nova 6 SE has a rear camera design similar to that of Apple’s latest phone but with four cameras inside the squircle instead of three. Huawei has also put the LED flash below the camera housing and not together with the cameras.
On the front, the phone has a punch-hole display with the hole positioned at the top left corner. It is most likely an LCD panel as the image shows the Nova 6 SE has a side-mounted fingerprint scanner that doubles as a power button.
The Nova 6 SE in the image has a gradient pink finish on the rear, a gold frame, and black borders around the display.
A second image reveals some key specs of the phone.
The Nova 6 SE will be powered by the Kirin 810 processor which means it is a mid-range device. However, it will get a flagship feature, and that is 40W SuperCharge wired fast charging. This is the same fast charging technology that the Mate 30 series ships with.
The rest of the specs are unknown but should be pretty interesting. We believe the Nova 6 SE will launch on the same day as the Nova 6 5G but it will not support 5G like its sibling.
