Whether you’re a vlogger with dreams of dominating the internet, or just love to share incredible photos and videos with your family and friends on social media, the new Huawei Nova 9 should top your wish list.

In a first for the Nova series, this chic smartphone features Huawei’s powerful 50MP ultra-vision camera system that includes an 8MP ultra-wide-angle camera, a macro camera and a depth camera.

These camera lenses use a RYYB colour filter array to capture 40% more light, while the device’s sophisticated XD Fusion Engine automatically enhances the detail and quality of your photos.

This means you can shoot photos at night or take panoramas, portraits, close-ups and action shots at almost pro-grade clarity. Best of all, these photos are ready to post with only minimal editing needed — if any.

All of these impressive features also apply to the Nova 9’s video functionality.

The 32MP high-res front camera supports 4K video capture and features AI image stabilisation, which means you can film yourself talking to the camera without having to worry that the footage will look shaky or be out of focus.

To seamlessly capture the world around you in a single video, the Nova 9 boasts a continuous front/rear recording feature that lets you effortlessly switch between the front and rear cameras.

You can also use both cameras at the same time with the dual-view video recording feature, allowing you to film all the action and your reaction to it simultaneously — no editing needed.

That said, should you wish to do some video editing, it’s simple thanks to the Petal Clip app that lets you choose from a variety of stylish video templates and themes.

Finding video clips and photos to package into a single film is also easier than ever with the Nova 9’s advanced video search and one-click video creation features. Simply enter a keyword for the images or videos you’re trying to find in your gallery, and your smartphone will intelligently identify any relevant shots. Click “edit” once and you’ll create your very own masterpiece. 

Of course, in true Huawei fashion, the Nova 9 isn’t just packed with hi-tech features, but beautifully designed too.

Sleek, slim and lightweight — it’s a mere 7.77mm thick and weighs only 175g — this smartphone has a 6.57″ curved display, a speedy refresh rate of up to 120Hz, an excellent battery life and charges lightning fast. It's available in two shimmering colours: Starry Blue and Black.
