Glory Zhang, CMO, Huawei Consumer Business Group, described the inspiration behind the new colourways. “Red and blue are two visual extremes for artists, two kinds of characters or two opposite moods and styles. Red is the colour of passion and fire, exuding confidence and youthfulness and expressing the vitality of the fashion industry, while Blue conveys a classic elegance and poise still popular in global fashion circles today. The bold collision of red and blue is fire meeting ice: all the passion and glamour of the fashion world inspired by a clash of the elements. When combined with the intricate wave design of the nova series these colourways show confidence, style and dynamism, and gives the artists and innovators amongst us a new level of choice and style.”

The result is a smartphone that has the capabilities to complement the vision of the world’s fashionistas and culture creators. Super-fast auto focus means no moment is lost, whilst the magic of the evening shows and after-parties can be caught in all their glory with superb low light photography functionality.
