HUAWEI nova 9 SE with 6.78″ FHD+ 90Hz screen, Snapdragon 680 SoC, 108MP camera announced

Today, HUAWEI held a Spring Press Conference at which the company unveiled a number of new products, including the new HUAWEI P50E, the HUAWEI nova 9 SE, the FreeBuds 4E and more. Let’s take a closer look at the newly announced HUAWEI nova 9 SE, the brand’s latest midranger.

The HUAWEI nova 9 SE is similar to the company’s previous nova 8 and nova 9 smartphones. The smartphone comes equipped with a 6.78-inch IPS display, a Snapdragon 680 SoC, a 108MP 1/1.56-inch high-resolution sensor that is the first of its kind on a HUAWEI smartphone, and a 66W HUAWEI SuperCharge.

The primary camera employs cutting-edge pixel 9-in-1 technology to increase the pixel size to 2.1 µm. A 1/1.52-inch sensor collects more light, resulting in a greater dynamic range and reduced noise. The rear quad camera captures colorful images at all times, whether you’re shooting during the day or at night, thanks to a strong multi-frame fusion technology. It also has a graphene heat dissipation system in a sandwich-like structure that can sense and cool down overheated parts more quickly.
