What do P, Mate and Nova Refer to in Huawei Smartphones Such as Huawei P40, Huawei Mate 30, Huawei Nova 6?

Hey guys! You might know which models Huawei has, but do you know the origin of these model names? 

Yes or no doesn’t matter. 

Here, I will introduce the meaning of Huawei's popular P series, Mate series, and nova series models. 

As far as the Huawei P-Series is concerned, it was initially a small branch of the Huawei Ascend series. Still, with the popularity of the P-Series, it has become a separate series that we see now. 

Before Huawei's P series was independent, it belonged to the Ascend series at the same time as D series, G series, and Y series. 

Among them, the D series is taken from the abbreviation of Diamond and is mainly designed as a flagship product. In contrast, the P series is the abbreviation of platinum "Platinum," which is mainly positioned as a high-end mobile phone or sub-flagship smartphone. 

As for the Huawei Mate series, the name of the Mate series has a lot to do with its original meaning. As we all know, the sense of Mate is a partner or assistant, which implies "trust" and "reliability." 

Considering that people will call their partners “teammate” or “workmate” in shopping malls, it makes sense for Huawei to focus on the high-end business market with the Mate series. 

Finally, for the Huawei's Nova series, Nova is close to its original Astronomy meaning as a new star. As Wikipedia explains, “A nova (plural novae or novas) is a transient astronomical event that causes the sudden appearance of a bright, apparently 'new' star, that slowly fades over several weeks or many months.”

After all, in terms of the Nova series, they are designed for young people, pay more attention to the upgrading of entertainment functions such as photography, audio, and video. The Nova series can be regarded as a bold attempt by Huawei in the market segment. 

However, some netizens teased that Nova means No Oppo Vivo Apple. Additionally, there are also some funny explanations about Mate, P, and Nova.

Fellow A: Mate is Huawei’s son, P is the daughter, and Nova is the niece.

Fellow B: Nova is expensive, P is too expensive, Mate is jaw-droppingly expensive. It's a growing relationship.
