Huaweis nova 7 series will gain three new members on April 23 (this Thursday), but an eager store already put two of them on its shelves, which resulted in the first hands-on video. It shows that the nova 7 and the 7 Pro will be more similar than expected.
The video starts with the nova 6 followed by the Huawei nova 7 5G. If you count the cameras, youll see that the new model has one more module a quad setup. The About screen lists the resolutions as 64+8+8+2MP, plus a single 32MP selfie camera on the front.
The nova 7 is powered by the Kirin 985 5G chipset and comes with 8GB of RAM and will be available with 128GB or 256GB of storage.

The Huawei nova 7 Pro 5G surprisingly also uses the 985 chipset instead of the flagship 990 5G as rumors suggested. It gets the same memory configurations too, 8/128GB and 8/256GB.
The quad camera on the back is also listed as 64+8+8+2MP, but this time the second 8MP camera has a periscope lens with OIS. The camera app goes up to 50x digital zoom, which suggests optical zoom of 5x. The main 64MP shooter has a bright f/1.8 aperture and (seemingly) no OIS.

Going back to the vanilla model for a second, its two 8MP modules have f/2.4 apertures and no OIS. The app shows up 10x digital zoom, so we are probably looking at a traditional lens with 2x optical zoom.
Also notice that the Pro model will have a screen with strongly-curved sides its a 6.57 OLED panel. The vanilla phone gets a flat 6.53 OLED instead, both have 1080p+ resolution and 60Hz refresh rate.
The nova 7 Pro has a dual punch hole on the front, housing a 32MP and an 8MP selfie cameras, likely wide and ultra wide.
Both phones be powered by the same 4,000mAh battery with 40W fast charging.
