HUAWEI nova 7 SE : Hands-On Experience!

The HUAWEI nova 7 SE 5G is designed to be an affordable 5G variant of the nova 7i that was launched earlier.

It is powered by the Kirin 820 5G platform, and runs on EMUI 10 with HMS. Our review unit comes with 8 GB RAM and 128 GB of internal storage.

On top of using a faster 5G-capable platform, the SE version comes with an upgraded 64 MP main camera, together with an 8 MP ultra-wide camera, a 2 MP macro camera, and a 2 MP depth sensor.

On the left side, you will find the SIM + NM card tray. This is a hybrid SIM tray, which supports two nano SIM cards, or one nano SIM card and one NM card.

The NM card is HUAWEI’s proprietary storage card – basically, a nano SIM-sized microSD card.

The Volume control buttons are on the right side, together with the Power button that doubles as a fingerprint sensor.

The side placement of the fingerprint sensor allows you to unlock the smartphone even when it’s mounted to your car’s dashboard.

There’s nothing at the top, except for a second microphone port, which is used for noise cancellation.

The HUAWEI nova 7 SE comes with a 3.5 mm audio jack, located at the bottom, together with the USB Type C port.

The HUAWEI nova 7 SE is powered by a relatively-large 4,000 mAh battery, which can be quickly recharged by its 40 watt fast charger.
