Huawei Nova 9 SE specs
Like the same suggests, the Nova 9 SE is essentially the more “affordable” version of the Huawei Nova 9 which was launched in November 2021 with a retail price tag of RM1,999. Despite costing RM900 less, the new Nova smartphone features a larger 6.78″ Full HD+ IPS display that pushes a 90Hz refresh rate and a 270Hz touch sampling rate.
In terms of cameras, it gets a quad-camera setup at the rear which includes a 108MP f/1.0 main camera that uses a 1/1.52″ image sensor. There’s also an 8MP f/2.2 ultra-wide-angle camera, 2MP depth camera and a 2MP macro shooter. Despite having a high-resolution camera, it can’t record videos in 4K as it is limited to up to 1080p. For selfies, the Nova 9 SE gets a 16MP main camera with a 50-degree wide-angle lens.
In terms of connectivity, the Nova 9 SE is a 4G phone that also supports 802.11ac WiFi 5, Bluetooth 5.0 and NFC. Powering the device is a 4,000mAh battery which supports Huawei’s 66W SuperCharge via USB-C. Like most new Huawei smartphones, it doesn’t have access to Google Mobile Services including Google Play Store. If you need to install apps, you’ll have to rely on Huawei AppGallery and Petal Search.
