Huawei will finally launch the Nova 5i Pro on July 26. The company last week launched Nova 5 series lineup – Nova 5, Nova 5 Pro and Nova 5i – in China, and it was expected that the Nova 5i Pro will also make its debut alongside.

The telecommunication major on Tuesday released the first promotional video of the Nova 5i Pro on Weibo.

As seen in the video (via TheMobileIndian), the Huawei Nova 5i Pro will feature a punch-hole display with a 32-megapixel selfie camera. The rear of the phone looks quite identical to Huawei Mate 20 Pro, but it is touted to pack a quad-camera setup instead, which will include a 48-megapixel primary lens.
