Huawei Nova 5T, launching at Cellucity soon…

 

With Huawei being caught up in the Trump trade war, we managed to miss out on getting access to the rather incredible Huawei Mate 30 Pro.

The US Trade blacklist of Huawei has prevented it from licensing Android technology from Google and gaining access to Google Services, that are used, to power Google’s apps. So as incredible as the Huawei Mate 30 hardware is, vendors around the globe haven’t been too keen to roll the dice on a device that lacked access to essential applications like Google Maps, You Tube etc…

With us heading towards Christmas season and Samsung and Apple launching their latest iconic devices, Huawei needed to bring something to the party!

 

Huawei Nova – Crush Blue

Enter the Huawei Nova 5T, planned and approved before the US blacklist this photography powerhouse is still Google approved and runs Android Pie (9). Whilst the Nova range has traditionally not available in the South African market, Huawei has opted to release it here and it will be available early in November 2019.

The NOVA lineup, in the Huawei stable, sits in between the youth-focused Y-series and the more premium orientated P-series. It offers an aspirational trendsetter, a phone that is as unique as it is powerful!

First off, the stunning colours Mid-Summer Purple and Crush Blue, give a fresh new funky look, my preference being the Purple, which subtly has the Nova logo etched into the facia creating a dynamic wow appeal. It really has to be seen “in the flesh” to be appreciated.

 

 

 

 

Huawei Nova – Mid-Summer Purple

From a tech perspective, the Nova is not all just about style and very much about brilliant photography. A rear array of quad cameras leading with 48MP main camera, Macro lens, 16MP Ultra Wide Angle lens with supporting Artificial Intelligence (AI) to help optimize scene selection, your photos will be the envy of your Instagram followers!

And if taking greater photos was not enough, the front-facing camera is a staggering 32MP and also sports AI to ensure your Selfies always have you looking your best.

Other stand out features are a side-mounted fingerprint sensor, 8GB of RAM (great for gaming apps like PUBG) and 128GB onboard memory, the Nova 5T certainly ticks all the boxes!

The Huawei Nova 5T will be priced from R599 per month on a Vodacom contract and will retail for R11999. It is certainly going to be a strong contender against the more expensive “iconic” devices when comparing its specs.

The first 2000 lucky owners in SA will also receive a Huawei MediaPad T5 tablet valued at R3999. All in all, the Huawei Nova 5T is a great choice for this summer! For more information visit www.cellucity.co.za

Pokemon GO – the effect

So the craze that has gripped the world! If you don’t know about it already, you are probably not ever going to play it 🙂 A game played on your smartphone, that uses Google maps and augmented reality to encourage players to get outside and be active – purpose explore the world outdoors whilst trying to catch Pokemon creatures! Once you have got a little menagerie going you can train them, power them up and battle fellow players.

By using your smartphones GPS location and Google maps, the app has a big drain on your battery and to a lesser degree a drain on your data bundle! Firstly an hours playing can deplete around 20% of your battery life, so if you going to be going on an epic Pokemon catching spree, having a power bank is an ideal option (check out our online store for some great options). Secondly how much data will you use whilst catching and training your Pokemon’s? Data from Verizon in the USA tallies it up at around 10MB per hour, we tested it at our Cape Town Head Office and were using 12MB an hour, so it is relatively light on data usage. It is advisable however to ensure you have a data bundle loaded so you don’t get stung by the OoB (out of bundle) shark.

Forewarned, forearmed… now GO track down Pikachu!

Pikachu - the original pocket monster
