Huawei has officially unveiled the nova 9 SE smartphone in the Kenyan market. You can get the Huawei nova 9 SE in Kenya for Ksh 39,999 which puts its right around where the OPPO Reno 7 is available for. At this price, the nova 9 SE should definitely offer better value for it to be the choice for many. I have been using the phone for a few days and will share my full thoughts on it in the coming days.
The Huawei Nova 9 SE does come with some impressive specifications. In my opinion, it does offer good value for money compared to most other smartphones within its price range. It does have one big negative and that is it does not support Google services. The phone is still usable and I have been able to get things going and have had a good experience but not everyone will have a similar experience.
That aside, you get a very modern and premium design and build quality as is the case with most Huawei smartphones.
It does come with a 108MP AI Quad Camera system, which comprises a 108MP main camera, an 8MP ultra-wide-angle lens, a 2MP Bokeh lens, and a 2MP macro lens. With more pixels, the 108MP ultra-high-definition main camera allows users to unleash their creativity. It also supports Super Night Shots, Low Light Shot, and AI Snapshot.
HUAWEI nova 9 SE supports 66W HUAWEI SuperCharge, enabling it to reduce charge time to a minimal. It takes only 15 minutes to charge the smartphone up by 60%, or 36 minutes to fully charge it. Vouched for by the TÜV Rheinland Safe Fast Charge Certification, HUAWEI nova 9 SE brings users a fast and safe charging experience.
In terms of aesthetics, the HUAWEI nova 9 SE has a stunning 6.78-inch HUAWEI FullView Display that supports the P3 colour gamut, ensuring spectacular viewing experiences with smooth visuals, vivid colours and incredible details. Designed with respect to the same aesthetic standards set by its predecessor, the HUAWEI nova 9 SE features ultra-thin bezels measuring just 1.05mm thin each and ultra-thin body measuring only 7.94mm thin. What’s more, the nova Star Orbit Ring’s camera module offers a star-like glare refraction that accentuates the device’s refined style.
According to the company, “The HUAWEI nova 9 family is tailored for younger consumers, offering quality, well-designed smartphones that are equipped with flagship features but at a competitive price. “
