Although Huawei had recently launched the brand new Nova 8 series smartphones in the Chinese market, but the company has surprisingly announced a refreshed model of last year’s Nova 7 SE in China today.
This device, known as the Huawei Nova 7 SE Lohas Edition, features largely the same specs as the Nova 7 SE except for its underlying chipset. While its predecessor runs on the Kirin 820 chipset, the new Nova 7 SE Lohas Edition comes with a slightly toned-down Kirin 820E chipset instead.
Other than that, the device continues to sport a similar 6.5-inches FHD+ LCD display that comes with a hole-punch cutout which houses a 16 megapixels selfie camera. Its fingerprint scanner will be located on the right side of the frame.
On its rear panel, it features an elongated camera housing which play host to a quad-camera system consisting of a 64 megapixels primary shooter, 8 megapixels ultra-wide camera, 2 megapixels macro camera, as well as a 2 megapixels depth sensor.
Under the hood, its Kirin 820E chipset allows the device to support 5G connectivity for both standalone (SA) and non-standalone (NSA) modes. It will be assisted by 8GB RAM and 128GB onboard storage that can be further expanded via a NM card.
To keep its lights on, the Huawei Nova 7 SE Lohas Edition relies on a 4,000mAh battery with carries support for Huawei’s 40W SuperCharge. The device will be shipped with EMUI 10.1 based on Android 10 (AOSP version).
In the Chinese market, the device retails at 2,299 Yuan (US$355) for its sole 8GB+128GB model.
