At the end of last year, Huawei officially introduced the Nova 8 and Nova 8 Pro, two mid-high-end models with a Kirin 985 processor and a camera module quite peculiar for its size and shape. Now the Chinese company has just announced its successors: the Huawei Nova 9 and 9 Pro.

These two new terminals once again bet on a stylish design with an OLED screen and a quad camera, but Now they ride a Qualcomm brain and they boast of a fast charge that in the Pro model reaches 100 W. Of course, they lose 5G connectivity. Let’s see the rest of the features.
