Huawei Nova 11 Pro: The designer smartphone

Nova 11 Pro Introduction

In the rapidly evolving world of smartphones, Huawei has consistently stood out for its cutting-edge technology and innovative design (until the freedom nation strike). The Huawei Nova 11 Pro is no exception.

As a tech enthusiast who has experienced many smartphones firsthand, I have become accustomed to various phone designs and can usually remain impartial. However, when I encountered the Nova 11 Pro, I was immediately struck by its appeal and knew that I wanted it in the green color variant.

Once I had the phone in my hands, it exceeded my expectations in many ways. In this comprehensive review, I will delve into the design, display, camera capabilities, battery performance, and security features of the Huawei Nova 11 Pro. So, let’s dive in and explore the world of the Nova 11 Pro together.

Huawei Nova 11 Pro Design and Display: A Perfect Blend of Elegance and Boldness


The phone boasts a design that seamlessly blends elegance with modernity. Inspired by the dreams of young people, the phone exudes a sense of freshness and innovation. The sleek and stylish body is available in two captivating colors: Green and Black. Whether you prefer a bold statement or a classic look, the Nova 11 Pro has a color option to match your personality and style.

Adding to its charm, it introduces the industry’s first nova Monogram Vegan Leather Design. The rear cover of the phone is crafted from high-quality vegan leather (a fancy way of calling TPU leather), featuring a cool lychee grain pattern. This not only adds a touch of sophistication but also offers higher drop-resistant and wear-resistant capabilities. The classic monogram nova logos beautifully tile the rear cover, making it a true work of art.

However, in China, there are also two non-leather designs: glacier white and sunrise gold. While these two designs have their appeal, I believe the leather design would resonate better with Malaysia.


Infused with Huawei’s Display Turbo technology, the display boasts five major functions: a 120 Hz refresh rate, a 6.78″ 2852 x 1200 resolution, 1440 Hz PWM dimming, and PCI P3 color gamut display. But the design is not the only impressive aspect of the Nova 11 Pro.

The display looks and feels similar to that on the Mate 50 Pro. While not as wide physically, the color space and vibrancy are equally striking. With the P3 color space, it means the display can showcase a wider color gamut, which is especially attractive for content creators to view their productions in a wide color gamut in real time.

Powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G 4G, this indicates that the phone is fully capable of gaming. To enhance users’ gaming experience, Huawei brings 120 Hz to the user. By setting the display rate to high, users can enjoy fast refresh rates and experience smoother gameplay.

In terms of size and weight, the Nova 11 Pro is incredibly thin at just 6.88 mm and weighs a mere 188g. This slim and lightweight design ensures comfortable handling and portability.

In today’s fast-paced world, a smartphone’s battery life is a crucial factor to consider. The Huawei Nova 11 Pro excels in this aspect, offering a powerful 4500 mAh battery that can keep up with your busy lifestyle. However, what truly sets it apart is the impressive 100 W Huawei SuperCharge Turbo technology.

With SuperCharge Turbo, you can charge the Nova 11 Pro to 60% in just 10 minutes and achieve a full charge in a mere 20 minutes when the screen is off. In our tests, we found that it took approximately 7 minutes to charge from 20% to 50%, 10 minutes to reach 60%, 15 minutes to reach 75%, and 25 minutes to reach 100%.

This charging technology surpasses that of most flagship smartphones in the market, including Huawei’s own current flagships, namely the P60 Pro, Mate 50 Pro, and Mate Xs 2.
