Huawai is bringing its multi-camera smartphone tech to the masses, with the announcment that its quad-lens Nova 5T will go on sale in the UK from November. It will have wide availability through high street stores and UK networks - and is expected to sell SIM-free for £399.

The key attraction of the handset is its four rear cameras…

The main camera uses a 1/2-inch sensor with a 48 megapixel resolution and an f/1.8 autofocus lens. Alongside this at the rear, is a 16MP wide-angle fixed focus lens with an f/2.2 maximum aperture, a 2MP f/2.4 macro lens, and a 2MP f/2.4 time-of-flight camera for assisting with bokeh effects.

At the front there is an impressively-high-resolution 32MP selfie camera.

But the phone also offers other photo smarts... An AI HDR+ shooting mode takes a number of images in one shot, merging the best parts of each to ensure the quality and sharpness of the final photo is enhanced. 

In addition, its Super Night Mode uses AI Image Stabilization (AIS) and intelligent light sensing to allow you take photos day or night with 'exceptional clarity'.

Powered by the Kirin 980 7nm Mobile AI chipset, the HUAWEI Nova 5T comes with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. 

It has a 3,750mAh battery, which promises to powersusers through their day on a single charge, even under heavy use - and can be 'supercharged' from 0 to 50% in just 30 minutes.

The phone is available in Asia already, but is set to hit UK stores for £399 in November. It can be found in three colors: Crush Blue, Dark Black, and Midsummer Purple.
