Huawei has a new phone on the way, as it turns out, and it’s going to be part of the ever-expanding nova family of mid-rangers. Ladies and gentlemen, meet the Huawei nova Y70 Plus. It has been semi-announced by the Chinese company for the South African market, where a teaser page is already up ahead of sales starting on May 1.
In fact, you can pre-order one from April 21 until April 30, by paying just ZAR 99 as a deposit – that’s about $6. This will mean you get a ZAR 499 ($33) price cut when you pay the balance between April 28 and May 6.
But wait, there’s more! If you pre-order you also get a Huawei Bluetooth speaker and a Huawei backpack, worth a combined ZAR 1,298 apparently ($86). But wait, there’s even more! You also get 24 months warranty, 50 days of free screen replacement insurance, 3 months of extended warranty, the Huawei Unboxing Service, and free repair shipping and delivery.
So now you may be wondering what this phone brings to the table. Huawei has thankfully outed the main features of the nova Y70 Plus through its listing in South Africa.
The handset has a 6.75-inch screen of unknown resolution with a waterdrop notch housing an 8 MP f/2.0 selfie snapper, 64 or 128GB of expandable storage, and a 6,000 mAh battery with support for 22.5W fast charging. The nova Y70 Plus has a triple rear camera system with a 48 MP f/1.8 main sensor, a 5MP ultrawide with 120-degree field-of-view, and a 2 MP depth sensor.
It runs EMUI 12 and will be available in Crystal Blue, Pearl White, and Midnight Black. It’s unclear where else it might be launched and when, and the price is also still a mystery, but if you are in South Africa and enter your email address at the Source linked below, in order to be notified about more details, you have the chance of winning a nova Y70 Plus for yourself.
