Huawei Nova 9 Detailed Description:

Huawei Nova 9 Design.

Huawei’s Nova 9 slim body and extremely thin screen edges make it look modern and loosely light. It makes a very good impression on sight both in terms of design and workmanship. Despite its comparatively large 6.57-inch screen diagonal, the Nova 9 is not too bulky in the hand. This is due to the humane dimensions of 160 mm x 73.3 mm x 7.8 mm. Thus, you do not have to have huge hands to be able to use the device adequately. It is light at 175 grams and thus friendly to the pocket.

Huawei Nova 9 Display.

The display of the Nova 9 consists of a 6.57-inch OLED panel that offers a resolution of 2340 x 1080 pixels with the activated brightness sensor. This display is ahead of some phones we have seen lately like the Tecno Spark 8. As a norm for OLED displays, the Nova 9 display delivers an excellent contrast ratio and a very good black value. It even manages to compare with some of the flagship phones such as Realme GT 5G, and Xiaomi Mi 11i and shows higher qualities when compared to Samsung Galaxy A72. The screen response time is quick and can also be easily used in very bright light surroundings. The contents are easily readable, and there are only a few reflections.

Huawei Nova 9 Camera.

If there’s one bit of phone hardware that Huawei excels at, it’s the camera and Nova 9 hasn’t been left behind. The Nova 9 isn’t packing the best phone camera around. But it does have a really capable camera. It comes with a Quad main camera featuring 50 MP, f/1.9, 23mm (wide), PDAF + 8 MP, f/2.2, (ultrawide) + 2 MP, f/2.4, (depth) + 2 MP, f/2.4, (macro) and a 32 MP selfie Camera. The 32Mp selfie camera is pretty decent however, a relatively wide f/2.0 aperture helps it to hold its own in a range of lighting. You can film 4K@30 video with the rear cameras, and there’s also a dedicated vlogging mode that lets you record split-screen and picture-in-picture video with two lenses at once, including changing between them on the fly.

 Huawei Nova 9 Performance.

Huawei uses a Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G 4G and 8 GB of RAM to ensure smooth system operation in the Nova 9. The performance here is identical to that of the 5G version and the new Huawei Nova Y9. In everyday operation, even more, demanding apps start quickly and the system can always be operated smoothly. Nova 9 is also good for gaming. The internal Qualcomm Adreno 642L graphics unit of the Huawei nova 9 is able to run even more demanding games at high graphics settings smoothly.

Huawei Nova 9 Software.

The Nova 9 contains EMUI version 12.0.1, which is based on Android 11, with security patches on the level of November 1, 2021. Since Huawei has no Google Services, it offers some useful alternatives with the Huawei AppGallery, Petal Maps, and other apps. The home screen of the smartphone also shows download links to numerous third-party apps such as Snapchat and others.

Huawei Nova 9 Battery.

Battery life isn’t exactly a selling point of the Nova 9 but it’s certainly not that bad either. With a capacity of 4300 mAh, larger than that of Huawei Nova 10 and Huawei Mate 40 8GB-128GB, it is enough for the phone to last a day’s use unlike the new Galaxy S22 5G, but not enough to stretch it to two or more days like the Huawei nova Y70 Plus, unless you are an extremely light user. It will do the job and last the day though, and that is really what matters.
