Huawei introduced the nova 10 series to global market at IFA 2022 in Berlin. We attended the conference and the keynote and even got alone time for early hands-on impressions with the Pro version.
Now the nova 10 Pro is with us in HQ and while we already revealed its most impressive feats at a glance, here’s what Huawei is packing inside the box.
The nova series has always been design-centric, and the 10 Pro is as pretty as a smartphone can get. Our unit in Silver has a slick matte coating with the nova logo standing out. The power key has a neat red accent and the whole device fits great in the palm.
The body is impressively thin for such a phone but the three-step camera island bulges a lot. Not only does it make it wobble massively on a flat surface it also makes the phone top-heavy.
The gold color is generally accepted as a symbol of glamour and prestige in China, and Huawei spent a lot to accent the nova 10 Pro’s flamboyance. The Silver unit has the most gold of all, with the outer ring and the circle around the main camera in the middle.
The color is also present on the default wallpaper, and since the phone ships with EMUI 12 (instead of Harmony OS), there is a Themes app that can gild even the icons.
The nova 10 Pro has the same chipset from the nova 9 Pro that is limited to LTE. We love the fact there is a 100W charger with the appropriate cable in the box and there is also a transparent plastic case. Once you put that on the phone the camera bump is still there, but it protrudes a lot less.
We handed the Huawei nova 10 Pro to our review crew. Once they are done with the tests and verdicts, the full review will be up, so stay tuned.
