Huawei finally unveiled the nova 11 SE today. The phone appeared on the company website with a 108 MP main camera and a thin profile. The official specs sheet revealed there is no 5G connectivity, and Huawei decided to omit the chipset details entirely.

The phone was later listed by Vmall, a Huawei-owned online store in China. From there we found the phone is powered by the Snapdragon 680 – an LTE-only chipset built on the 6 nm process with a 2.4 GHz CPU. RAM remains a mystery, however.

The smartphone has a 10-bit 6.67” flat OLED panel with Full HD+ resolution. It has 90 Hz refresh rate and 100% DCI-P3 color gamut coverage. There is a single punch hole in the center for a 32 MP selfie camera that records video at up to 1080p resolution.

The nova 11 SE features a very thin profile at only 7.39 mm. It weighs 186 grams and packs a 4,500 mAh battery. It supports 66W charging, and Huawei said it can go from 0 to 100% in 32 minutes.

The phone boots HarmonyOS 4, joining a family of over 100 million devices with the new OS. It comes with a revamped notification center, better permission management for risky applications and a Live Window to expand current activities, sitting in the notification bar.

Other highlights include NFC with the option to store card info for offline payments, a dual nano SIM slot, and an under-display fingerprint scanner.
