Huawei nova 9 in Europe - Snapdragon 778G without 5G, 50MP camera and 120Hz OLED display for €499

Huawei has unveiled the European version of the nova 9, which debuted in China last month.

What’s the difference?

The novelty is not much different from the version for the Celestial market. The main thing to note is the lack of a proprietary operating system HarmonyOS 2.0. Huawei nova 9 is running EMUI 12 firmware on Android, and the version of the operating system on the official website is not specified. We hope for Android 11. Google services, of course, no.

The second difference is also related to the fact that something is missing compared to the Chinese version. This time 256 GB of internal memory. The novelty is offered only with 128 GB of storage. The amount of RAM is 8 GB.

On the positive side, we can note the cooperation with the British fintech company Curve. Huawei nova 9, although left without Google services, received contactless payment support. But it is not yet clear in which countries it will work.

The European variant of the smartphone retains a non-5G Snapdragon 778G processor, a 6.57” NFC OLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate, and a 4300mAh battery with 66W wired charging. The resolution of the main camera is 50 MP 8 MP 2 MP 2 MP, and the front camera is 32 MP. Both support shooting in 4K at 3 FPS.

The smartphone will go on sale before the end of this month in blue and black body colors. The first one is called Starry Blue, but the second one didn’t come up with a beautiful name – just Black. Pre-orders in Europe will start taking October 21.

The cost of Huawei nova 9 in Europe was €499. Recall that in China the model was estimated at €360-400. When pre-ordering, the company gives FreeBuds headphones
