In a strategic move to expand its global footprint, Huawei has rebranded its entry-level Enjoy 70 smartphone as the Huawei nova Y72 for international markets. The device, initially introduced in December, recently surfaced on the company’s South African website, featuring the same design elements, marketing visuals, and a distinctive X Button for quick app access.
The standout feature of the nova Y72 is its impressive 6,000 mAh battery, ensuring prolonged usage without the constant need for recharging. Accompanying this is a robust 50 MP main camera at the back, complemented by a 2 MP auxiliary shooter, promising users a versatile photography experience. While detailed specifications are yet to be officially released, preliminary information suggests a Kirin 710A chipset powering a spacious 6.75-inch LCD display with a 720p resolution.
One notable aspect of the nova Y72 is its support for 22.5W wired charging through a convenient USB-C port, offering users a quick and efficient charging solution. While the Chinese version runs on HarmonyOS 4, the global variant is expected to transition to the familiar EMUI operating system.
The Huawei nova Y72 is presented in striking Green and Black color options, with an enticing starting price of ZAR 4,999 (approximately $265). The memory configurations are yet to be confirmed, but more details are anticipated to be revealed in the coming days.
As Huawei continues to strengthen its presence in the global smartphone market, the nova Y72 showcases the company’s commitment to delivering competitive features at an accessible price point.
