First Leaks of Nova 5 and Nova 5 Pro

We are talking about the Nova 5 and Nova 5 Pro, of which we have the certainty thanks to the online appearance of the alleged tempered glasses of the two smartphones.

Thanks to the leak we can see that smartphones will feature large displays without notches of any kind: probably the front camera will find space in a pop-up or retractable mechanism. The edges are very optimized, except for the lower one which has a greater thickness.
