Huawei launched the nova 6 yesterday, its latest Kirin 990 handset. While the Chinese company has released marketing pictures on the 5G handset, some hands-on shots that appeared online before the launch event give a better idea of what the device looks like.

Huawei flooded Weibo yesterday with marketing images of the nova 6, its next 5G and Kirin 990 powered handset. However, there was a distinct absence of real-life pictures of the device. Fortunately, some have appeared online. The images were actually posted before Huawei announced the nova 6, but they correlate perfectly with the design being shown off in marketing images.

Beginning up front, the pictures give a clear depiction of the true size of the device's dual front-facing camera punch-hole. The aperture is much larger than of the one in the Galaxy S10 Plus, for example, with there being a large black space between the two sensors. Predictably, the nova 6 has slightly larger bezels than marketing pictures suggest, although its earpiece is much harder to spot.

The pictures also give a look at the device's side-mounted fingerprint scanner, which seems to be making a comeback for some reason. The pictures also reveal just how pronounced the nova 6's quad rear-facing camera array is. Huawei will start selling the nova 6 in China on December 12, although XDA Developers notes that the device will not see a wider release until next year.
