Moreover the 4K selfie video and Continuous Front/Rear Recording offer more ways for users to create engaging videos and respond to the rising demand of vlogging.”
A New Design
The HUAWEI nova 9 introduces a new Colour No. 9 colourway, which is created with an all-new Starry Flash AG Glass process that adds a unique texture to the chassis and highlights the iconic camera module, giving it greater visual emphasis. Under a spotlight, the whole device shines and sparkles. It also has a 6.57-inch 120Hz Original-Colour Curved Display with a tapered surface that flows like a waterfall, minimising the left and right bezels for more immersive viewing. It can display 1.07 billion colours, features a refresh rate of up to 120Hz and 300Hz touch sampling rate for improved responsiveness.
The design of the HUAWEI nova 9 itself also stands to impress, measuring only 7.77mm thick with a weight of 175g. It also features a Nebula-inspired Star Orbit Ring that was first debuted with the HUAWEI nova 8. It comes with a “nova” ring emblem that highlights the Star Orbit Ring, which makes it even more recognisable and eye-catching. Combined, these design features represent not only a continuation of a legacy, but also the rebirth of it.
50MP Ultra Vision Camera
The rear camera system features a 50MP ultra vision camera, an 8MP ultra wide angle camera, a macro camera and a depth camera. It includes a large 1/1.56-inch sensor and a RYYB CFA with high light sensitivity, collecting 40 percent more of light compared to a standard RGGB sensor. This allows users to capture exquisite photos and videos even in low light conditions, ensuring that the bright parts of the image are not overexposed while the dark areas are clear and packed with detail.
Once the camera hardware captures an image, the XD Fusion Engine gets to work, using sophisticated computational photography techniques to greatly enhance image detail and quality.
HUAWEI nova 9 features a 32MP High-Res front camera that supports 4K video capture and AIS (AI Image Stabilisation) Video Stabilisation, allowing users to capture high definition footage of themselves as they use the front camera or when they vlog.
Thanks to Continuous Front/Rear Recording, users can also switch between the front and rear cameras, allowing them to fluidly capture their story within a single video file. Dual-View Video recording allows users to showcase their live reaction to events, simultaneously using the front and rear cameras with no editing required or, for when you want to show the big picture and the detail, you can simultaneously capture a close-up shot and wide-angle shot at the same time.
With the Petal Clip app, users can easily choose from a variety of video templates and themes before posting their vlogs or other videos to social media in no time. Moreover, complicated editing processes have been streamlined thanks to Video Search and One-Click Video Creation.
The device supports new Touch Turbo technology, taking mobile gaming to a new level as it allows for more accurate and responsive controls.
Whether for gaming or simply browsing the Internet, the HUAWEI nova 9 delivers excellent battery life with the high-capacity 4300mAh battery. In addition, a downtime is kept to the minimum, with the new nova smartphone supporting 66W HUAWEI SuperCharge for high speed charging.
With the HUAWEI nova 9, controlling multiple devices at once is as easy as controlling just one single device, thanks to the Super Device features. The Device+ tab in Control Panel enables users to easily control or set up multi-device collaboration with other devices, such as the HUAWEI Vision, FreeBuds, MatePad and MateBook. For example, users can tap on the HUAWEI MatePad icon to activate Smartphone-Tablet Multi-screen Collaboration; tap the HUAWEI MateBook icon for Smartphone-PC Multi-screen Collaboration or tap the HUAWEI FreeBuds icon to seamlessly switch their audio output to their Huawei earbuds.
With the Distributed File System, HUAWEI nova 9 can also function as a wirelessly connected external storage unit for the PC, meaning you can access the files you want more easily than ever before.
Running on EMUI 12, the HUAWEI nova 9 offers a smart and seamless experience to users. AppGallery is available on the HUAWEI nova 9, where users can download a wide range of high-quality apps.
