Huawei is unable to use its own chipsets, nor 5G ones from Qualcomm, no thanks to various US government bans. This makes the company to keep searching for alternatives. French smartphone manufacturer, Wiko is officially licensed to use the smartphone developed by Huawei.  The brand has now officially launched the Huawei Nova 9 SE 5G with its branding and name – Wiko 5G.

WIKO 5G launched

The phone is literally the same Nova 9 SE smartphone but with a different branding and marketing name. The device offers a decent set of specifications such as a 108-megapixel primary rear camera and Qualcomm Snapdragon 695 5G chipset.

The 6.78-inch IPS LCD display on the Wiko 5G smartphone supports up to 120Hz high refresh rate, 270Hz touch sampling rate, up to 16.7 million colours, and FHD+ 2300*1080 pixel resolution. The panel has a pixel density of 378PPI and a screen-to-body ratio of 94.85%.

The Qualcomm Snapdragon 695 5G chipset with Adreno 619 GPU powers it. Interestingly, the phone is the first to be approved with the HarmonoyOS Connect software ecosystem and runs the Huawei HarmonyOS operating system.

In terms of cameras, the smartphone has a 108-megapixel Samsung HM2 primary camera, an 8-megapixel secondary ultrawide camera, a 2-megapixel macro camera, and a 2-megapixel depth-of-field camera. On the front, a 16-megapixel selfie camera is housed inside a punch-hole cutout in the centre.
