#1 The Flagship-Level 50MP RYYB Ultra Vision Camera

Camera nowadays has upgraded tremendously with new functions for better picture quality. Often, a megapixel is considered more important than others, but it is only a part of picture quality that makes it great. For mobile photographers and camera enthusiasts, you may know that the camera sensor plays a huge role in ensuring sharp and compelling photography. With that, the HUAWEI nova 9 has aced the camera sensor, producing an incredible photo shooting experience through capturing light exposure. For the nova 9, there's a new 50MP RYYB Ultra Vision Camera System to let you capture the best possible real-life images anytime and anywhere. Moreover, it is also accompanied by an 8MP ultrawide lens, a 2MP depth lens, and a macro sensor that allows you to take microscopic photos of up to 4cm.

The camera setup

According to HUAWEI, the RYYB colour filter has been improved with high light sensitivity, allowing it to collect up to 40% more light exposure and clarity. Inherited from its flagship counterparts, the nova 9 also comes with an XD Fusion Engine and Ultra Vision HDR Technology. These combine to further enhance the quality of images through computational photography functions.

Even as a mid-range tier smartphone, the nova 9 has a Super Night Mode function to improve your night photography experience. Last but not least, there is a Dual-View video function for all the content creators out there to vlog your day creatively! In other words, this feature can record using the front and back camera at the same time!


#2 Smooth and fluid OLED display

120Hz refresh rate on an OLED display? Sweet

It's rare to see an OLED display on a mid-range phone, but the nova 9 has it. The display measures 6.57-inches and features a refresh rate of up to 120Hz to enhance your viewing experience with smoother motions. Additionally, it even has a screen optimisation feature that switches the refresh rate between 60Hz and 120Hz, depending on what you're doing. This balances the visual energy to prolong its battery life.


#3 Sleek and premium design

With its curved glass design, the nova 9 can be mistaken for a flagship device. Thanks to a sophisticated glass grinding process, the curvature of the glass fits perfectly on the metal frame and only weighs 175g and is 7.77mm thick.

Starry Blue looks great

Coming in an eye-catching Starry Blue design, its back is made with a dual-film and dual-coating process together with an advanced anti-glare coating. This results in a fancy matte finish with a delicate texture. By the way, if you want the classic black look - it's available too.


#4 Ultimate 55W HUAWEI Super Charge

The battery is another important factor for Malaysians, and it can be annoying if it drains quickly. Assembled with HUAWEI's battery technology, the nova 9 offers a 66W HUAWEI SuperCharge technology. So don't worry if you have forgotten to charge, as SuperCharge will ensure a full charge in just 38 minutes!

#5 Mobile gaming experience

Besides having an advanced camera system, the nova 9 can be used for mobile gaming too. It comes with a 120Hz refresh rate display for the best mobile gaming experience. Moreover, it has a feature known as the Touch Turbo Gaming, which delivers a 300Hz touch sampling rate to give you the edge in gaming.

Smartphones get warm after a while of gaming but fret not - the nova 9 also has graphene & VC liquid cooling technology integrated into its cooling system. So even after gaming for hours, its graphene heat dissipation technology immediately cools the device down when a certain level of heat is detected.


#6 All kinds of apps through the HUAWEI Mobile Services (HMS)

In the HUAWEI AppGallery, it features Data Privacy and working parents can enable Parental Control to access restriction functions. This can prevent children from browsing for too long on the phone.
