Huawei has just launched the Nova 9 series, which includes two smartphones—the Nova 9 and Nova 9 Pro. These phones are powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G 4G chipset and feature up to 100W fast charging. So, let’s get into the specs, features, availability, and expected price of Huawei Nova 9 and Nova 9 Pro in Nepal.
Huawei Nova 9, 9 Pro Overview:
Design and Display
Starting with the display, the Nova 9 has a 6.57-inch OLED screen with 2340 x 1080 pixel resolution. Whereas, the Nova 9 Pro packs a larger 6.72-inch panel with a 2676 x 1236 pixel resolution. Both these displays are curved and boast a 120Hz refresh rate, a 300Hz touch sampling rate, and the P3 wide color gamut.
However, the main difference between the two is the centered punch-hole cutout for a single selfie camera on the Nova 9, while the Pro model has a pill-shaped cutout on the top left for two cameras. On the rear, there’s a gigantic camera setup reminiscent of Huawei’s P50 series, with the Nova logo at the bottom.

Under the hood, as aforementioned, both phones pack Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 778G processor. However, Qualcomm has disabled 5G connectivity on this chip as a workaround to sell its chips to Huawei.
Long story short, the US restricts any American-owned companies from supplying 5G chips to Huawei. Here, the Snapdragon 778G 4G has been paired with 8GB RAM and up to 256GB of internal storage. The Nova 9 series boots on Huawei’s HMS-based HarmonyOS 2.0 out-of-the-box.
The battery is another area where they differ substantially. The Nova 9 and 9 Pro feature a 4300mAh and a 4000mAh cell, respectively. Likewise, the former supports 66W fast charging support contrary to 100W on the 9 Pro.
As per Huawei, the Pro model can fully juice up in just 20 minutes. Plus, it also has a VC (Vapor Chamber) and graphene cooling system to keep the device temperature down.
On to the cameras, the Nova 9 series has a quad-camera setup at the back led by a 50MP f/1.9 RYYB sensor. This is followed by an 8MP ultra-wide-angle, a 2MP depth-of-field, and a 2MP macro camera.
On the front, the vanilla model has a single 32MP selfie camera. The Pro model, on the other hand, gets an additional 32MP sensor for ultra-wide shots.
Rest of the specs
Moreover, both phones have an ultrasonic fingerprint sensor for biometrics. For connectivity, they feature Bluetooth 5.2 with LDAC, NFC, dual-band Wi-Fi, and GPS.
