Huawei's Nova series is positioned behind the P and Mate lines in the company's hierarchy. The next device in the series, the Nova 5, is on its way, and a new leak has given a clear image of what to expect. Notables include a Kirin 980, three rear cameras, and an in-display fingerprint reader.

Huawei's Mate and P series are the company's flagship lines. Beneath those, though, is the Nova series. The Nova series is Huawei's sub-premium lineup, not unlike Samsung's Galaxy A series. The Chinese company released the Nova 4 towards the end of 2018, and is now set to follow it up with a direct successor: the Nova 5.

The Nova 5 is expected to sport a 6.39-inch display AMOLED display. It is touted to feature an in-display fingerprint reader. We've seen that technology on Huawei's flagships like the Mate 20 Pro and P30 Pro, and this will continue the trend of technology appearing on the Nova line one generation after they debut on the company's flagship lines. There doesn't seem to be any notch or punch hole, either, so there's a high chance the Nova 5 just sports regular, slim bezels.

The Nova 5 is also expected to be powered by the Kirin 980, Huawei's current flagship chipset. By the time the Nova 5 is out, we expect the Kirin 985 to have been released. We saw something similar with the Nova 4 last year, as it featured a Kirin 970

We expect a triple rear camera setup with the main sensor being the 48 MP Sony IMX586. Rumors have also claimed it will feature a 4200 mAh battery and 40 W fast charge.
