Huawei debuts P50E, nova 9 SE and new colors for the P50 Pro in China
This week is full of new phone announcements and Huawei is also on board with its latest entry in the P50 series, a new nova 9 SE midranger and three new colors for its P50 Pro flagship.
Huawei P50E is a less fancy version of the Huawei P50 with nearly identical specs save for the chipset which is bumped down to the Snapdragon 778G (the 4G variety). Elsewhere, the phone matches its more premium brother through all key specs and down to the size.
You still get a 6.5-inch FHD+ OLED with a 90Hz refresh rate and centered punch-hole cutout for the 13MP selfie cam. The back has the dual circle camera island design with a 50MP main snapper, a 13MP ultrawide and a 12MP telephoto with 5x optical zoom.
The software side is covered by HarmonyOS 2.0 while the battery department comes in at 4,100 mAh and sports 66W charging. You get the same three Obsidian Black, Cocoa Gold, Snow White colors as the P50 as well as and a new Galaxy Blue hue.
Huawei P50E comes with 8GB RAM as standard and either 128GB or 256GB storage. The baseline 8/128GB trim costs CNY 4,088 ($644) while the 8/256GB trim goes for CNY 4,488 ($706).
Huawei nova 9 SE
The second new Huwei phone of the day is the nova 9 SE. As the name suggests it shares its look with the nova 9 but it comes with a different chipset, battery and a 108MP main camera - the first on a Huawei phone to date. Elsewhere the phone still boasts a 6.78-inch display though an LCD instead of the OLED on the vanilla nova 9 and a 90Hz refresh rate.
The nova 9 SE utilizes Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 680 4G chipset and packs 8GB RAM and 128GB storage as standard. The 108MP main cam on the back is joined by an 8MP ultrawide and two 2MP sensors for macro shots and depth data. The phone’s battery comes in at 4,000 mAh and sports speedy 66W fast charging.
Huawei nova 9 SE starts at CNY 2,199 ($346) for the 8/128GB trim and goes up to CNY 2,399 ($378) for the 8/256GB version.
New P50 Pro colors
Alonside the two new phones, Huawei also brought three new colors for its P50 Pro flagship.
The Cloud Brocade White and Danxia Orange models feature a faux leather texture while the Galaxy Blue hue features a frosted glass finish.
