Last week, a Huawei Nova 6 SE image was seen with four rear cameras online. It turns out to be the Huawei Nova 6 5G that has launched earlier today. DxOMark has managed to get an early preview of the phone so it’s not surprising a review of the selfie camera is now up on the website. The device is now No. 1 on the Selfie Rankings with a high score of 100. It replaces the Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ 5G which has been on top since August with a score of 99.
The Huawei Nova 6 5G is the latest Nova phone. It is more camera-centric with focus on the selfie camera. The result of Huawei’s hard work has been favorable as it is now considered the best in selfie images. To review the specs, the phone comes equipped with a Kirin 990 processor, dual front camera with wide-angle selfie and depth sensing, bokeh mode, 32MP main camera with 1/2.8″ sensor, 26mm field of view, f/2.2-aperture lens, and 4K video recording.

There are also occasional exposure and white balance instabilities plus unnatural rendering of skin and local loss of texture.
