Circumventing the Problem
A post from Weibo revealed the Hi Nova 11. No, it’s not a knockoff of the legit Huawei Nova 11, rather, it’s Huawei finding loopholes to their ban. It turns out that the company can reach out to other brands and resell their devices as their own. In short, they can rebadge their devices so that they gain access to US-centric features such as Google Services and 5G connectivity.
The phone is identical to the already-released Nova 11 but with 5G connectivity. This is not the first time Huawei has done this. WIKO has a deal with Huawei and began launching rebadged Huawei phones. For instance, the Wiko 5G is a rebadged Huawei Nova 9 SE. The WIKO T50 has been rebadged as the Nova 10Z.
The phone isn’t out yet as of July 14th. The phone has been leaked since June 26th and because there is complete silence regarding this, the fate of the Hi Nova 11 is unknown.
To reiterate, the Huawei Nova 11 has a 6.78″ 10-bit AMOLED, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G chipset, 50MP RYYB Primary Camera, 4500mAh battery, and 66W Fast Charging.
