With the Huawei nova 9 SE, the manufacturer has presented the latest model of its smartphone series for the digital-savvy target group. In addition to a chic design, the device features powerful cameras including special vlog recording and editing modes, which are particularly targeted at content creators.
The features of the Huawei nova 9 SE
The new Huawei nova 9 SE relies on a 6.78-inch (17.22 cm) HUAWEI Full HD+ display with a resolution of 2388 x 1080 pixels and a pixel density of 387 ppi. Thanks to the only 1.05 mm thin display bezel, social media content, videos and streams are supposed to be shown to their best advantage.
The SoC is Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 680 with eight cores that have a clock rate of up to 2.4 GHz. 8 GB of working memory and 128 GB of system memory are available. The dimensions are 164.64 mm x 75.55 mm x 7.94 mm (height x width x depth), while the weight is a manageable 191 grams.
The battery of the nova 9 SE has a capacity of 4,000 mAh, which should provide up to 26 hours of talk time according to the manufacturer. Thanks to the quick-charge function with 66 watts, the smartphone is fully charged in less than 40 minutes via USB Type-C.
Otherwise, the smartphone supports dual-nano-SIM operation, as well as WiFi 802.11a/b/g/n/ac, 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz, Bluetooth 5.0 and NFC. In terms of sensors, gravity, fingerprint, digital compass, ambient light and proximity sensor are offered.
EMUI 12 is used as the operating system, which among other things offers the HUAWEI AppGallery, which meanwhile includes more than 173,000 apps. Contactless payment fans will be happy about the financial app Curve. Curve combines debit and credit cards on a “smart card” and allows contactless payment thanks to NFC technology.

In combination with the AI functions, the camera is supposed to enable “razor-sharp photos and impressive video recordings without shakiness”.
