Huawei has scheduled the launch of its Nova 5 series in China on June 21, but thanks to a series of leaks we already know quite a few things about both these smartphones. Huawei is expected to launch the Nova 5, Nova 5i, and Nova 5 Pro in China. The Chinese smartphone maker has already revealed in a teaser that the Nova 5 series will feature a 32-megapixel selfie camera. The posted teased by Huawei shows the Nova 5 with a waterdrop notch.
