Huawei nova 9 launches in Europe with a €499 price tag

Michail, 21 October 2021

Nearly a month after its announcement in China, Huawei’s nova 9 has made its way to the global stage as it was part of the company’s in-person event held in Vienna. Sadly, it’s not joined by the larger nova 9 Pro which remains exclusive to China.

Nova 9 packs Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 778G 4G chipset with 8GB RAM and 128/256GB storage alongside a curved 6.57-inch OLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate and a 4,300 mAh battery with 66W charging. The main cam on the back features a 50MP RYYB sensor next to an 8MP ultrawide snapper and two 2MP auxiliary modules for macro shots and depth data. The software front is covered by EMUI 12 on top of Android 11 and lacks Google Mobile Services.
