After releasing the smartphone in China, Huawei has released the Nova 9 in Europe. The device comes for €499 in the region. Unfortunately, it came alone. The Pro model didn’t join its sibling this time.
Huawei first announced the Nova 9 series back in September and it was later that month when the company released the device in its homeland.
The Huawei Nova 9 is a curved 6.57-inch OLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate. The unit is equipped with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 778G 4G chipset with 8GB RAM and 128/256GB storage and is powered by a 4,300 mAh battery with 66W charging.
The rear side is equipped with a quad-camera setup – 50MP + 8MP + 2MP +2MP. While the front is home to a 32MP camera.
Software-wise, the Huawei Nova 9 runs Android 11- based EMUI 12, with no Google Mobile Services. The Huawei device is available in two colors – Black and Starry Blue – and comes for €499 in the region.
