After Huawei brought over the huge MatePad Pro 13.2 to the Philippines this month, the brand announced a new mid-range phone globally with the nova Y72. Also known as the Enjoy 70 in China, the nova Y72 was spotted at Huawei’s South Africa website, and it seems that the mid-range phone will be made available to other countries soon.
What makes the nova Y72 interesting is that its design draws a lot of inspiration from the P60 Pro, with its camera module giving emphasis to the 50-megapixel main shooter. It’s definitely a toned-down version with the notch present on its 6.75-inch HD+ IPS display for an 8-megapixel selfie shooter. The Enjoy 70’s product page (which is most likely the same as the global nova Y72) mentions that it will have AOD support despite not being an AMOLED panel.

The nova Y72 appears to be a slim device judging by the flat frame sides, but packs a sizeable 6000mAh battery that supports 22.5w charging. It also has an additional button on the left side called the “X button” for easy access to apps—which is a rare design feature for a Huawei device. While the product page of the Enjoy 70/nova Y72 does not mention the processor used and RAM, it will come in 128GB and 256GB storage options.
There are speculations that the nova Y72 will use a Kirin 710A processor, but it’s possible that Huawei might give it a different configuration. The Enjoy 70 does come with HarmonyOS 4 in China, and it remains to be seen if the nova Y72 will be the same—or will stick to EMUI.
We should know more details about the nova Y72 in the coming days.
