The most recent one is the Huawei Nova 7 SE. It will go on pre-order on June 12 (this Friday) and officially become available on June 22. It’s not yet up on most stores, but we’ve found Lazada’s placeholder page.
Last year, the Philippines had its first 5G network but it was a fixed network intended to replace wired broadband. Local carriers have made 5G service with new smartphone launches in the last few months.
Huawei finally took off the wraps of its Nova 7 series consisting of three devices, namely The Nova 7 Pro, Nova 7, and Nova 7 SE, after several weeks of leaks and speculations. All three phones come with 5G connectivity, 64MP main cameras, and 4,000 mAh fast-charged 40W batteries.
The price is 20,000 PHP ($400) which makes it one of the more affordable 5 G phones. Previous launches brought the Huawei P40 and P40 Pro (the vanilla model was launching PHP 31,000 but this was a discount on the promo).
Local carrier Globe has already coverage across some parts of the capital and is seeking to improve it. Many carriers also have proposals for 5G networks.
The Nova 7 With Its Specification
The Nova 7 5G features a 6.53 OLED FHD+ display for its 32MP selfie camera, with a single punch hole cutout. The panel has an aspect ratio of 20:9 and comes with an integrated fingerprint scanner as well.
The Huawei Nova 7 SE is the best-priced of the three Nova 7 models. Thanks to the Kirin 820 chipset in its 5G phones, the phone also packs a 6.5 “IPS LCD display (with HDR10), 64MP main plus 8MP ultra-large cameras, and a 4,000mAh battery with 40W fast wired charging (70% charging in 30 minutes).
Meanwhile, in China, The Huawei Nova 7 SE will launch for CNY 2,400 ($340 / INR 25,794) in its 8/128 GB. And then, CNY 2,800 ($395 / INR 30.078) for the 8/256 GB variant in black, red, green, and silver colours.
