This Thursday, September 21 in Paris, Huawei presented us with its new flagship, the Nova 9, with which it intends to conquer young Europeans. And he has the potential, on paper ...

With its design worked to appeal to "young", the new Huawei flagship is intended to coexist alongside the two flagship series of the Chinese manufacturer: the Mate and the P.

Huawei Nova 9: ​​beautiful photos and maximum battery life

Huawei is therefore launching its new range, Nova, whose logo represents two people. The Chinese manufacturer is building its image around openness and inclusiveness. And, to appeal to its new target, “young people”, it relies on two important points: maximum autonomy and particular care given to photos and videos. On the design side, we are not disappointed with this slim smartphone with curved edges and a coating that is very pleasant to the touch.

Its 6,57-inch screen displays a resolution of 2 x 340 pixels, HDR1 compatible, with a dynamic refresh rate, between 080 and 10 Hz. It runs on EMUI 60 and is equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 120G SoC. Autonomy as such has only been approached from the point of view of recharging. Thus, the Nova 12 is compatible with the manufacturer's SuperCharge 778 Watt, for a full charge in 9 minutes.

The rear of the Nova 9 has a photo module made up of 4 sensors:

  • A 50 Mpx (f / 1,9) main sensor with Huawei RYYB technology that captures 40% more light;
  • An ultra-wide angle of 8 Mpx (f / 2,2);
  • A macro sensor (f / 2,4) to capture objects close to 4 centimeters;
  • A depth sensor (f / 2,4) for a nice bokeh effect.

On the front, the 32-megapixel selfie camera allows you to shoot photos and videos in 4K quality.

Enhance photos with AI

The Nova 9 embeds a package of artificial intelligences to sublimate the images taken by its sensors. First of all, it is possible to take several photos of the same set, under different exposures. The AI ​​will take care of combining them to offer a unique shot, rich in colors and contrasts. Among the other on-board artificial intelligences, one is responsible for correcting the distortions present in the shots taken with the ultra-wide-angle, while another ensures stabilization of the video capture in motion.

Small disappointment to note on the hardware side, after this presentation: it is a 4G chip that equips the Nova 9, therefore incompatible with the 5G network being deployed.

The flagship is available from this October 21 for pre-order, at a price of 499 euros and in two colors: blue (Starry Blue with Nebula Craftsmanship) or black. Its official release date is set for November 2, 2021. And you will soon be able to find our test of the Huawei Nova 9 on Itopdroid.
