Huawei Nova 9 Review: Price in India, Unboxing, Specifications and Features

Huawei Nova 9 Review: The Huawei Nova 9 is making its way to Europe, exactly as rumours predicted. At this moment, the nova 9 Pro will not be joining it.

The price for an 8GB plus 128GB variant is EUR 499, with preorders beginning today (October 21) and actual sales coming later this month.

We just got back from the unveiling event where we got some hands-on time with the phone. But first, let’s take a look at the big picture.

On paper, we’re already familiar with the Huawei nova 9 and nova 9 Pro, as they were released in China in September. However, this is our first experience with one of them in person.

While the two phones are significantly different, they are cut from the same cloth, as the phrase goes, and are actually fairly similar. You can draw your own conclusions, but it’s reassuring to see such a well-divided lineup.

The nova 9 Pro boasts faster 100W charging on a somewhat smaller 4,000 mAh battery, an extra ultra wide selfie camera, and HDR10 compatibility on its display when compared to its vanilla sister. The biggest difference is the display and, of course, the device size. In a 160 x 73.7 x 7.8 mm, 175-gram body, the nova 9 boasts a 6.57-inch, 1080 x 2340-pixel display. The nova 9 Pro has a slightly larger 6.72-inch, 1236 x 2676-pixel display and a body that measures 163.4 x 74.4 x 8 mm and weighs 186 grammes.

The larger Pro variant has a beefier cooling system on the inside, featuring a vapour chamber and graphene cooling. However, we can’t say how much of a difference it makes in terms of actual performance or in-hand comfort on the Snapdragon 778 4G chipset shared between the two prior to a complete evaluation.

Regardless, the nova 9 Pro will not be available in Europe for the time being, and users will not have a choice. We’ll refer to the Pro in our hands-on review as well, because the nova 9 and nova 9 Pro are so comparable. Before we get started, a few brief clarifications are in need, as they are sure to be asked: yes, the nova 9 uses a 4G-only variant of the Snapdragon 778G, and no, despite its European release, it does not support Google Play Services. Both of these points have something to do with the still-unfavorable geopolitical situation and Huawei-US ties.
