Huawei has been on a launching spree this month. With so many new devices in town, we don’t know whether these smartphones will even be available locally. Despite that, we still can’t wait to see what these smartphones have in store for us.
UPDATE: Huawei Nova 7 SE is now available in the Philippines for Php19,990.
The newest in the brand’s portfolio is Nova line update, the Nova 7 series. This time, the Nova series also transitioned to 5G giving us more 5G-supported midrange devices. And speaking of affordable, the cheapest in the series is the new Huawei Nova 7 SE.
Though it is hardly noticeable, the Huawei Nova 7 SE has the smallest screen among three smartphones. It features a 6.5-inch downgraded LTPS IPS LCD with a 1080 x 2400 pixel resolution. Similar to the vanilla version, the device comes with a single punch-hole cutout for its 16-megapixel selfie camera. However, unlike its older siblings, it doesn’t come with an under-display scanner. Instead, it uses a side-mounted fingerprint scanner.
The rear, on the other hand, features a large 64-megapixel main shooter, an 8-megapixel ultrawide camera, 2-megapixel macro lens, and 2-megapixel depth sensor.
Another significant change in the Nova 7 SE is its processor. It comes powered by a Kirin 820 5G chipset, unlike its siblings which use a Kirin 985. It also has 8GB of RAM and 128GB/256GB of internal storage. However, Huawei kept the battery at the same capacity at 4,000 mAh that supports 40W fast wired charging.
The Huawei Nova 7 SE will come in black, purple, green, and silver colors. The 8GB+128GB variant retails for a price of CNY2,400 or roughly around Php17,200. The 8GB+256GB unit, on the other hand, costs CNY 2,800 or around Php21,800. Note that the price conversions are before taxes.
