Huawei Nova 9 and 9 official: all about the new models of the series
Design and display
As was to be expected, the Huawei Nova 9 series also embraces the new aesthetic style introduced with Series P50. This mainly means the appearance of the rounded vertical camera seen on the aforementioned top of the range. The choice of colors is very interesting, which is divided into Provence (purple), Beautiful Forest (green), Bright Black (black) and the very particular Color 9, a 9-shade gradient texture. Also nice to see that the outline of the main sensor is in the same color as the body.
As for the display, we have two screens from 6.57" e 6.72", both 10-bit OLED with resolution Full HD +, refresh rate a 120 Hz and touch sampling a 300 Hz. Either way, we have two screens curvi but with a difference in terms of punch hole. On the base model, in fact, we have a central hole, while on the Pro one a side pill containing a dual selfie camera.
Hardware and software
After the first rumors indicated the Kirin 990E as the SoC of these Nova, the new series actually debuts in 4G version and to move smartphones it is Snapdragon 778G (yes, just like Honor 50). In short, it seems that the company has implemented the same strategy as Huawei P50, relegating the possible 5G variant later in the year. Memory cuts are for both from 8 / 128 GB e 8 / 256 GB.
For battery capacity, the basic model is equipped with a 4.300 mAh, while the Pro one has one from 4.000 mAh. The charging standard also changes, with a power of 66W on the first and from 100W on the second, in style Honor 50.
But it does not end there, because on both models we have a very thick audio system, with an improvement of the proprietary codec L2HC of the Huawei Histen system, usually reserved for the top range. This codec allows for lossless audio up to 960 kbps, which is very useful for interconnection in the brand's audio ecosystem. Finally, for the software it seems that the version of HarmonyOS 2.0.1.
The Huawei Nova 9 series is characterized by the presence of the elliptical camera also seen on Huawei P50. On both models there is a quad camera with a RYYB main sensor from 50 MP, wide angle from 8 MP and two sensors from 2 MP, macro and depth. On the front, however, the selfie camera has a 32 MP on the standard model, while on the Pro we also find a secondary sensor from 32 MP wide angle.
