All eyes are on Apple as it announces no less than four new iPhone 14 devices at the September event, but Chinese phone maker Huawei is still leading the way with two of its own new launches: the nova 10 and nova 10 pro.

Available in the UK in “the next few months”, both phones will focus on photography and try to beat Apple’s camera innovations with a handful of industry firsts, the most interesting of which is a pair of 2x optical zoom selfie cameras, a 100 -degree wide-angle mode and 4K video quality.

Huawei has slowly shifted its focus from the mobile side of its business outside of China after a US trade ban in 2019 dealt a major blow to the world’s third-largest smartphone company by preventing Google software and services from being used on its mobile devices.

To stay relevant in Europe and the US, Huawei has focused on producing a wider range of health and fitness wearables, earphones and some of the best Windows laptops money can buy.

In addition to announcing the new nova 10 and nova 10 pro, Huawei also launched its latest lightweight laptop, the matebook X pro (£1,799.99, Huawei.com). The flagship runs on the latest 12th generation Intel Core processor and until September 30, Huawei bundles the matebook X pro with a free Huawei mateview monitor.
