A month after Huawei announced the Nova 9 and Nova 9 Pro smartphones in China, the company has now introduced the Nova 9 smartphone to global markets starting from Europe. The smartphone features a 6.57-inch FHD+ AMOLED display, Snapdragon 778G processor, 50MP main camera, and a 4,300mAh battery.
Huawei Nova 9 features a 6.57-inch FHD+ AMOLED display with 2340×1080 pixel resolution, a 120Hz curved display with a 300Hz touch sampling rate, 1.07 billion colors, and DCI-P3 wide color gamut.
It is powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 778G processor and packs 8GB RAM with 128GB/256GB storage options. Unlike the version that was released in China, it runs on Android 11 with EMUI and features Huawei Mobile Services instead of Google Mobile Services.
The Nova 9 shares a few design similarities with Huawei's flagship P50 lineup as it features a quad-camera ring setup with the 50MP primary sensor at the top while the accompanying 13MP ultra-wide camera, 2MP macro camera, and 2MP depth sensor take the bottom three spots in the circle.
At the front, it packs a 32MP selfie camera in a punch-hole notch and an in-display fingerprint sensor at the bottom part of the screen.
In terms of connectivity, it offers Dual 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11ax (2.4GHz/5GHz) MIMO, Bluetooth 5.2, GPS, and USB Type-C.
Huawei Nova 9 packs a 4300mAh battery with 66W SuperCharge fast charging which according to Huawei will charge from 0 to 100% in 45 minutes.
