Preorders are now live for the most affordable 5G-enabled smartphone in the Philippines. The Huawei Nova 7 SE 5G is priced at P19,990 (around $398) locally, and it will be available for pre-purchase in the country via Lazada and local retailer Abenson.
(Update, July 28: This is the most affordable 5G phone in the Philippines, but some say it’s expensive. Is it? Here’s what we think.)
(Update, June 23: It’s available now! Read Huawei Nova 7 SE 5G released in PH. Freebies, discount, store list here.)
The preorder period will run until June 21 through the said channels as quarantine restrictions to limit the spread of the coronavirus are relaxed in most parts of the country.
Early adopters will receive a free pair of Huawei Freelace wireless earphones (limited to the first 750 buyers) and 15GB of storage courtesy of Huawei Cloud for a whole year. A P500 ($10) non-refundable deposit is required if you’re getting the Nova 7 SE from Lazada. The redemption date, or the first day of shipping, is set for June 22.
In the Philippines, the Huawei Nova 7 SE 5G is currently available in two colors — Space Silver and Crush Green. We don’t know if the Midsummer Purple version, which looks like the Huawei Nova 5T variant of the same name, will launch here, but we’re crossing our fingers.
In case you’re not familiar, 5G is the new standard for mobile connectivity in the country, and both local telcos promise to officially launch their 5G networks and technologies for consumers this year. It supports higher speeds, higher bandwidth, and more stable network connections compared to 4G.
Other notable specs include a 6.5-inch LCD with a full-screen design and a punch hole on the upper-left side, a 64-megapixel main camera on the back, and a 4,000mAh battery that allows for 40-watt fast charging over a USB-C port. The Nova 7 SE also ships with Android 10-based EMUI 10.1 out of the box.
