We thought the Huawei Nova Plus was launching last week when we spotted a tweet from Huawei, however, it seems that may have been a misfire. All that is behind us today, with Huawei officially announcing the mid-tier Nova Plus is on sale now from $549 AUD.
If you’re interested in the Nova Plus (and there is a lot to be interested in) you can pick one up at either Harvey Norman or Officeworks. Though their websites don’t list the device yet, with the announcement now made, it shouldn’t be long for the Nova Plus to show up. The 5.5″ phone has a FHD LCD display, Snapdragon 625 processor paired with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage with a MicroSD slot.
Chek out the full specs below:
|Key Specifications:||Huawei Nova Plus|
|Release date||September 2016|
|Screen technology||IPS LCD|
|Resolution||1,920 x 1,080|
|Core config||8x 2 GHz|
|MicroSD||Yes, up to 128GB|
|Android OS||Android 6.0|

Update: Officeworks are now listing the Nova Plus for $499, stock not yet availalbe.
If there was something missing from this device I would say it was NFC for mobile payments. Yes this is an all-metal phone, yes it’s mid-tier, however, I think NFC is now a must have feature to be a competitive device, and the lack of it is noticeable.
We’re hoping to get a review unit soon, so we’ll be able to put the Huawei Nova Plus through the full Ausdroid review process.
