Huawei may not be in the headlines in the same frequency it did in the past few years. However, the company is still around trying to deal with the multiple consequences imposed by the US ban. Recently, we saw the brand bringing the Huawei P50 Pro and P50 Pocket to international markets. The Huawei P50 Pro took a long time to reach the west, the P50 Pocket no more than one month. Now, the company is preparing a new range of mid-range smartphones for its Huawei Nova series. The Huawei Nova 9 SE has passed through multiple certifications suggesting an imminent launch.
To those unaware, the Huawei Nova 9 series was launched in select markets like China and Kenya. That’s how Huawei works nowadays, betting in its homeland and some key markets. Now, it is preparing to unveil a new variant for this lineup. Unfortunately, not much is known about the Huawei Nova 9 SE apart from what we can collect from the certification documents.
The Huawei Nova 9 SE has been spotted on the NBTC certification website. In addition to Thailand’s NBTC listing, the device also passed through Wi-Fi Alliance certification as well as by the EEC certification website. The device passed by NBTC with model number JLN-LX1. When it comes to Wi-Fi Alliance it passed with the same model number and confirmed support for 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands. The listing also confirms Android is the operating system, however, the exact version is unknown. We’re not expecting Android 12, anyway. Furthermore, the device will likely come with EMUI and Huawei Mobile Services to compensate for the lack of Google Mobile Apps. As far as the EEC certification is concerned, it does not reveal much about the smartphone but suggests an imminent release.
Huawei Nova 9 SE alleged specifications
According to the rumors, the Huawei Nova 9 SE isn’t an entirely new smartphone. Instead, it could re-use some of the Honor 50 SE specifications and even the design. That’s something strange to hear, after all, Honor isn’t associated with Huawei anymore… Perhaps, the Honor 50 SE was ready several months before its release when Huawei was still controlling Honor. If that’s the case, then the handset will pack a 6.78-inch IPS LCD with a Full HD+ resolution. The handset will draw its powers from a 4,000 mAh battery with support for 66 W fast-charging. Under the hood, the handset will pack an octa-core chip clocked at up to 2.4 GHz. We assume it’s the MediaTek Dimensity 900 SoC which brings two ARM Cortex-A78 cores at this clock speed.
Other specifications include a Quad-Camera setup at the back with a 108 MP main camera, an 8 MP ultrawide snapper, and two 2 MP sensors for macro and depth sensing.
