Tech giant Huawei has brought the Huawei Nova 9 SE to the country. This is their latest mid-range smartphone and the company has opened the pre-order period for the phone with consumers getting a free Huawei Band 4 included in the package.
Huawei Nova 9 SE comes with a 6.78″ 1080p LCD screen with a 90Hz refresh rate and a centre punch-hole that houses the selfie camera.
We get a side-mounted fingerprint sensor instead of an under-display fingerprint reader.
Under the hood, we get a Qualcomm Snapdragon 680 processor coupled with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of onboard storage. Huawei Nova 9 SE runs on EMUI 12 and Android 11 and yes there’s no access to Google Play Services.
