The Huawei NOVA 9 is now available for pre-order in Kenya. This can be done online through Amaya – which is the company’s online store retailer in this market. According to the listing, the device costs KES 65,999 and will ship to whoever pre-orders in 2 weeks.
The Huawei NOVA 9 is a good looking device. It has a 6.57-inch OLED display with 120Hz refresh rate and HDR10 support.
There’s a 50MP main camera at the back that’s paired with an 8MP ultra-wide sensor, a 2MP depth sensor and a 2MP macro sensor. At the front, there’s a 32MP selfie camera.
The phone uses the Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G 6nm processor. It doesn’t support 5G networks. It comes with 8GB RAM, 128GB storage, and a 4300mAH battery which supports 66W fast charging.
It isn’t clear from the listing if the phone runs Android or Huawei’s own HarmonyOS. We expect it to be the Non-Google services edition of open source Android.
