The Huawei Nova Plus smartphone has just gotten a pretty significant price cut in Malaysia. Originally priced at RM1,499, the mid-range device is now retailing at RM999 at popular retailer DirectD.
In terms of hardware, the Huawei Nova Plus is fairly similar to the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4. It features a 5.5-inch 1080p display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor paired with 3GB of RAM, 32GB of expandable storage, and a 3,340mAh battery.
In the camera department, the Nova Plus has 16MP rear and 8MP front-facing cameras; the rear shooter also comes with optical image stabilisation – a rare feature at this price point.
Given that the Huawei Nova Plus was released in Malaysia back in October 2016, a price cut is of course, quite expected. But at RM999, Huawei Malaysia has slashed the retail price by a huge 30% from the original RM1,499 RRP – making it a solid alternative to the Redmi Note 4.
That said, the Redmi Note 4 is still more affordable at RM799. Still, if you’re looking for a decent mid-range device besides Xiaomi’s offering, the Huawei Nova Plus is worth a look.
