On the back, the camera design is the most important feature. Right from the start, the Huawei Nova 6 SE comes with a quad rear camera configuration. What makes it stand out is the fact that the cameras are mounted on a square module, which is very similar to what Apple did on the iPhone 11 range, and there is an LED flash light under the quad camera module.

In addition, there is an integrated power key and side-mounted fingerprint sensor so that you can unlock your phone in an instant with a single tap.

The Huawei Nova 6 SE comes with 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage. It also has a 4200mAh battery with the support for super fast charging of 40W. The device does not have a fingerprint sensor on the back, but uses a side-mounted sensor.

To be perfect, the New 6 SE only needed one thing...

This is far from being the best smartphone today, but it has several details that would make it perfect for many users.

However, it seems to be destined to go unnoticed in the various European markets. Like its "brother", it will arrive without any support for Google applications and services, making its success in Europe virtually impossible. If on the one hand, in China the demand for these services is almost zero, in Europe they are essential tools for the majority of users.

Price and availability

As with the top-of-the-range model, the manufacturer also failed to reveal any possible global launch plan for the Huawei Nova 6 SE.

In terms of price, Huawei nova 6 SE 8+128GB version is priced at 2199 yuan (about $312), which will be pre-sold at on December 18 and officially go on sale on December 25 in China.
