Huawei Nova 9 has finally made it to the global market nearly a month after becoming official in China. Sadly, it is only the base Nova 9 for now and the Nova 9 Pro remains exclusive to its home market.

The global Nova 9 is no different from the Chinese variant, though it is considerably more expensive at €499 (up from €360).

Huawei Nova 9 Goes Global for €499

The phone features a 6.57-inch OLED display with Full HD+ resolution and a 120Hz refresh rate. The screen is curved from the sides and supports HDR10 as well as 10-bit colors. It’s powered by the Snapdragon 778G (4G) with up to 8GB RAM and 128/256GB storage options without a microSD card slot.

The main camera is a 50MP RYYB sensor next to an 8MP ultrawide snapper and two 2MP auxiliary modules. The phone boots Android 11 covered by EMUI 12, but without Google Mobile Services. The 4,300 mAh battery has support for 66W super-fast charging.

Huawei Nova 9 will be available for €499 in Black and Starry Blue colors.
