Huawei has just added another mid-ranger to its nova series of smartphones today, namely the nova Y91. Perhaps its most distinctive feature is the iPhone-like notch. The huge camera island on the back can’t easily be ignored either.
The Huawei nova Y91 comes with a big, 6.95-inch 1080×2376 LCD touchscreen with 90 Hz refresh rate and 270 Hz touch sampling rate, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 680 SoC at the helm, 8GB of RAM, 128 or 256GB of storage, and an absolutely humongous 7,000 mAh battery which charges at 22.5W with the in-box brick.
On the rear there’s a 50 MP main camera with f/1.8 aperture, and a 2 MP depth sensor. For selfies you get an 8 MP shooter on the front. The phone runs Huawei’s EMUI 13, and doesn’t support 5G or Wi-Fi 6. It does have Bluetooth 5.0 and a USB-C port, but no 3.5 mm headphone jack.

The fingerprint sensor is embedded into the power button. The nova Y91 will be available in Moonlight Silver and Starry Black. It measures 171.6 x 79.9 x 8.9 mm and weighs 214g. It’s still unclear how much this device will cost, or when it will become available.
