Huawei Nova 5 certified in China, 40 W charging in tow

Although Huawei still has to confirm their existence, the Nova 5 and Nova 5i have been both spotted recently on the website of various certification bodies such as ECC, FCC, and 3C. The 3C certification received by the Nova 5 is the latest such event, and it confirms the 40 W charging capabilities of the device.

As a confirmation of previous rumors and leaks that mentioned two upcoming Huawei Nova 5 devices, two such handsets have just been spotted on the website of the 3C certification agency in China. In addition to the fact that two models are in the making, this recent spotting also confirms a previous leak that suggested the presence of 40 W SuperCharge support.

The two variants certified by China's 3C agency are named SEA-TL10 and SEA-AL10. The certification documents also reveal that the handsets come with a 40 W charger in the box, so they obviously feature 40 W SuperCharge support. However, this power adapter also supports 18 W charging and at least one of the aforementioned devices might not be able to handle a faster battery refill.

Previously, the SEA-LX1 variant had been spotted on the EEC website. Next to it, there was also a GLK-LX1U. Sadly, the listings contained no information regarding the technical specs or features of these devices.

The cases that leaked online suggested a triple-camera setup on the back and an in-screen fingerprint scanner. Since the Nova 4 sports a hole in the display for the selfie shooter, it would not be surprising to see this design approach used in the Nova 5 and/or Nova 5i.

Since Huawei is no longer able to deliver Google Android-loaded handsets, there is one big question that needs an answer: what mobile operating system will be onboard the Nova 5/5i? Care to take a guess? Feel free to drop it in the comments section below, as usual.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
