For optimum toughness, HUAWEI nova’s rear shell is made from aviation-strength magnesium and aluminium alloy. The shell is then sand blasted with carefully selected ceramics, creating a textured back that both aids grip and adds sheen. An oblong composite plate decorates the metallic rear shell, creating a modern sense of contrast. HUAWEI nova’s ultra-thin industrial design is completed with a subtly curved section of 2,5D glass. It meets the rounded outer edges of the phone to provide a perfect fit in your hand.
