Huawei Nova 9 SE leaks with the company's first 108 MP camera and a Snapdragon 665 SoC
WinFuture has leaked the Nova 9 SE, an upcoming Huawei smartphone that it will sell in Europe. Purportedly, the smartphone will launch for between €250-€280, although WinFuture notes that this is a price that it has converted from another currency to Euros. Due to ongoing US sanctions, the Nova 9 SE will also launch without Google Mobile Services (GMS).
According to WinFuture, the Nova 9 SE has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 SoC that Huawei complements with 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of expandable storage. Reputedly, the smartphone relies on a 4,000 mAh battery too, which powers a 1080p display. WinFuture adds that the display will measure 6.78-inches across and will have a 2,388 x 1,080 native resolution, which yields an odd aspect ratio of 19.9:9.
Additionally, the Nova 9 SE will be Huawei's first smartphone with a 108 MP camera. Unfortunately, it is unclear what sensor Huawei has used here. However, WinFuture claims that the Nova 9 SE also has an 8 MP ultra-wide-angle camera and dual 2 MP sensors. Like many mid-range smartphones, the Nova 9 SE will use these low-resolution cameras to calculate depth of field and macro information. In comparison, the front-facing camera will be a 16 MP sensor.
The Nova 9 SE will arrive in Europe and elsewhere with EMUI 12, Huawei's latest in-house OS. For reference, Huawei continues to base EMUI on Android 11, not the newer Android 12. WinFuture has not revealed when Huawei will announce the Nova 9 SE yet, either.
