Design and Display
The back of the phone is made of either glass or eco-leather; it depends on what colour you pick. The green-coloured phone has an eco-leather back, whereas the black-coloured phone offers a glass back.
On the front, you get a large 6.78-inch curved OLED display that melts and covers the phone’s sides beautifully, giving it an elegant and posh look. The Nova 11 Pro’s display has a screen-to-body ratio of 91.1% and a pixel density of 429 ppi.
The Nova 11 Pro also supports HDR10 for HDR playback, and the screen also refreshes up to 120Hz for smoother animation.
The display is also protected with Huawei’s Kunlun Glass for ultimate display protection
Features and performance
The Nova 11 Pro uses the top-of-the-line mid-range SoC, the Snapdragon 778G, and 8GB of RAM. But the phone offers one storage option — 256GB and doesn’t support external SD cards to extend the storage capacity.
This phone also only supports 4G and doesn’t support 5G.
The phone comes with the EMUI 13 OS out of the box, which was developed in-house by Huawei for their smartphones.
The Nova 11 Pro offers a dual camera system on both the front and back. On the back, it hosts a 50MP rear camera with an aperture size of f/1.9 and a secondary 8MP ultrawide camera with an aperture size of f/2.2.
On the front, you get an 8MP portrait camera with an aperture size of f/2.2 and a 60 MP ultrawide camera with an aperture size of f/2.4.
4K recording is supported on both the front and rear cameras; however, the front camera can only record 4K up to 30 fps.
And thanks to the large sensor on the back, the portrait shot out of this phone looks like it was taken from an expensive SLR camera, and the same is true with the 8 MP portrait camera on the front.
Battery & Charging
The Huawei Nova 11 Pro offers a decent 4500 mAh Li-Po battery that can be charged from 0% to 50% in about 15 minutes thanks to the 100W charger that’s also included in the box.
The phone also supports wireless charging to quickly recharge your accessories.
