A Closer Look at the New HUAWEI nova 9 SE

HUAWEI recently unveiled its latest smartphone in the Philippines, the new HUAWEI nova 9 SE. It is currently the most affordable mid-range smartphone in the market. Among the many features I love from this smartphone is its 108MP main camera, which is perfect for young adults who simply love to share their stories and creative content like vlogging.

The HUAWEI nova 9 SE features a larger 6.78” Full HD+IPS display from its predecessor. This smartphone runs on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 680, designed to deliver long-lasting and seamless interactions. It also comes with 8GB Ram and 128GB of storage. The new nova 9 SE supports 802.11ac WiFi 5, NFC and Bluetooth. In addition, it has a 4,000mAh battery which supports Huawei’s 66W SuperCharge via USB-C, with fast and easy charging. To install apps, you have to download it through the Huawei AppGallery and Petal Search.

Supernova, Super Camera Feature

Now for the camera, as mentioned earlier, the Huawei nova 9 SE is equipped with 108MP f/1.0 main camera. There is also an 8MP f/2.2 ultra-wide angle camera, and a 2MP macro shooter which is great for food photography. Its 16MP front camera renders a clear, steady shot for taking selfies. Users will definitely enjoy the Nova 9 SE’s quad-camera setup.

Another notable feature of this smartphone is the Dual-video view where you can simultaneously use the front and rear cameras with no editing required. This unique feature showcases your live reaction to events. Its Continuous Front/Rear Recording capability enables users to switch between the front and rear cameras, allowing them to fluidly capture their story within a single video file.

Do you love to take groufie or group selfies? With its Remote Shutter which is compatible with Huawei smartwatches, you can be easily set-up with a tripod and capture group selfies, so everyone is included in the frame. 

More features of the nova 9 SE includes a sensor that automatically detects when a person in your frame is smiling, then snaps a photo right away!

Stunning Design

I also like its gorgeous design that features a 3D glassback, made possible by a dual-film dual-plating nano-texture. 

The phone stands at 6.78in and measures 7.94mm, perfect for easy viewing. The display also features ultra-narrow bezels; 1.1mm at the top, 1.05mm on the sides, it still fits on my one hand.


The HUAWEI nova 9 SE comes in three gorgeous skyscape colors.  I got the Crystal Blue design which I love. It is also available in Pearl White and Midnight Black. The star orbit ring camera additionally refracts light like starlight, in line with the thematic concept behind the nova line.

The HUAWEI nova 9 SE is now available in the Philippines and retails at an affordable Php13,999. Customers who pre-ordered received a HUAWEI FreeBuds 4i and HUAWEI Cloud worth Php4,745. You can get this on Huawei's Official Shop on Shopee, don't forget to use your #ShopeePay because it's more #SulitSaShopeePay. I always get free shipping and other discounts when I use Shopee Pay as mode of payment. It's hassle-free too, I don't have to wait for the OTP when using credit card. The smartphone is considered the most affordable smartphone in its price category. Check more updates on Huawei Philippines’ official pages on Facebook and Instagram and stay updated.
