Mid-range smartphones aim to combine flagship-level functionality with great value. You may have to compromise slightly on one aspect or another, but it’s often worth it. They also have many advantages besides their competitive price, they often offer premium features, they are on par with the performance of high-end phones, and they allow you to upgrade to a newer gadget without feeling also guilty.
Huawei’s latest mid-range phone, HUAWEI nova 9 SE, is the latest addition to their mid-range offerings and we really think it’s a great choice for a mid-range phone priced below 1,200 Dh and here’s why:
Stunning 108 MP high-resolution photography
HUAWEI nova 9 SE is equipped with a 108MP AI Quad Camera System, which includes a 108MP Main Camera, 8MP Ultra-Wide Angle Lens, 2MP Bokeh Lens and 2MP Macro Lens. With an impressive number of pixels, the 108 MP ultra-high definition main camera allows users to unleash their creativity in sublime detail. The larger sensor and advanced imaging technology allow the smartphone to deliver extremely clear photos in high resolution mode, creating lossless images even when magnified three times.
The HUAWEI nova 9 SE can capture images in dark environments and increase brightness while reducing noise and improving photo dynamic range. You can also take perfect selfies in low light as the Super Night Shot function can accurately recognize human faces and optimize the background while filtering out noise. With AI recognition shutter technology, enabling intelligent shutter adjustment, the HUAWEI nova 9 SE captures dynamic scenes with precision, allowing every important memory to be preserved.
Fast charging has become a staple of smartphones. Thanks to 66W HUAWEI SuperCharge, the HUAWEI nova 9 SE can be charged to 60% in just 15 minutes or fully charged in 36 minutes.
Striking design with sophisticated craftsmanship
The HUAWEI nova 9 SE features a HUAWEI FullView Display with ultra-thin bezels measuring just 1.05mm each. This contributes to a much more immersive visual experience for the user and perfectly complements the ultra-thin body of the smartphone, which measures just 7.94mm. The rear lens carries the iconic Star Orbit Ring camera design from the nova series. With its slim body paired with the 3D glass back cover, the HUAWEI nova 9 SE is easy to hold and fits nicely in the palm of your hand.
Creative vlogging experiences
If you like creating vlogs, the HUAWEI nova 9 SE has everything you need. No matter where, you can easily shoot videos from different perspectives, thanks to front/rear continuous recording. This feature allows you to shoot seamlessly from different perspectives, save footage to a single file, and save time during complex editing. On the other hand, dual-view video recording allows you to present live reactions to events, using the front and rear cameras simultaneously without additional editing. There is also the Petal Clip app to streamline the whole content creation process. If you haven’t tried vlogging yet, now might also be a great time to start.
With EMUI 12, users can enjoy a smooth experience even after using the device for a long time. With One Hop connection via Near Field Communications (NFC), the HUAWEI nova 9 SE can pair directly with other Huawei devices; Collaboration between devices can be established with just a touch. When you pair the HUAWEI nova 9 SE with a Huawei smartwatch, speaker or display, the experience is intuitive and effortless.
With distributed file system, HUAWEI nova 9 SE enables users to access files from PC. Alternatively, users can send files between the smartphone and other Huawei devices via Huawei Share, and talk with up to 11 parties simultaneously taking advantage of the larger screen, camera and speakers. .
Running on EMUI 12, the HUAWEI nova 9 SE delivers a smart, simple and seamless experience to users. The reliable, innovative, user-friendly and secure AppGallery is available on the HUAWEI nova 9 SE where users can easily browse, explore, find and easily download a wide range of high-quality apps.
You might struggle to find a smartphone with better features at this price, which is why we think the HUAWEI nova 9 SE is an excellent choice for a mid-range phone.
