In July 2018, Huawei had announced the Kirin 970 SoC powered Nova 3 smartphone and Nova 3i phone fueled by Kirin 659 chipset. Now, the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC) has approved the Nova 5 and Nova 5i smartphones. The EEC listing has also revealed the model numbers of these phones. At the same time, the GLK-AL00 and GLK-TL00 Chinese variants of the Nova 5i have been spotted on the database of the 3C authority of China.
According to EEC certification, the Nova 5 has a model number of SEA-LX1 whereas the Nova 5i has a model number of GLK-LX1U. The EEC approval of these smartphones hasn’t revealed any information on their specifications. The 3C listing of the Nova 5i reveals that it may come with a 10W charger. This suggests that the Nova 5i could be a mid-range phone with Kirin 710 and it may lack support for fast charging. Nothing else is known about the Nova 5i smartphone.
Recently, XDA’s Mishaal Rahman had revealed some details of the upcoming Kirin 980 SoC powered phones from the company. He had revealed that the SEA-AL10 and SEA-TL10 that are nothing but Chinese editions of the Nova 5 will be arriving with a full HD+ AMOLED display of 6.39 inches. In December 2018, Huawei had released the Nova 4 as its first smartphone with a punch-hole display. There is no confirmation on whether the upcoming Nova 5 will be also equipped with the same display design.
The Huawei Nova 5 could be arriving with a Sony IMX576 25-megapixel selfie camera. It is expected to come packed with a 3,500mAh battery. The rear shell of the phone could be featuring a triple camera system that may include a Sony IMX380 12.3-megapixel lens, a Sony IMX586 48-megapixel lens and a Sony IMX316 ToF sensor.

The case images of the Nova 5 smartphone were leaked recently. The images had revealed that the case does not feature a cutout for a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner. Considering the fact that the phone is coming with an AMOLED display, it could be featuring an in-screen fingerprint reader. There is also a possibility that the Nova 5 may arrive with a side-mounted fingerprint sensor.
