Few changes beyond the selfie camera and the main sensor

If we look at the form factor of this Huawei Nova 11 SE, we see that there are no changes compared to its predecessor. Flat edges with curved corners and a thickness of 7.39 millimeters They make it a very thin phone, although with a slight increase in weight to 186 grams, an almost negligible difference compared to the 184 grams of the Nova 10 SE.


The screen does not change either, going back to betting on a OLED panel with 6.67 inches diagonal, FullHD+ resolution and 90 Hz refresh rate. It is also a very successful front with bezels that, although noticeable, are not too large. And all this with the presence once again of the hole in the upper central part for the selfie camera.

As a brain mounts a Snapdragon 680although not because Huawei says so, since in the previous generation it was also hidden data and in this case it is extracted from sources such as GSMArena. The RAM is not mentioned either, although the storage is 256 and 512 GB versions.

Color Black

Its microprocessor is adapted to the 4G connectivity, so we don’t find any 5G on the Huawei Nova 11 SE. The standard of Bluetooth 5.0 It is also left somewhat behind, along with a USB-C based on the USB 2.0 standard.

If we talk about the battery, nothing changes compared to the previous generation, having 4,500 mAh and with 66 W fast charging. According to the manufacturer, it takes 32 minutes to fully recharge and the autonomy is up to 16 and a half hours consuming video.

The selfie camera doubles its resolution, reaching 32 megapixels, while the rear ones apparently gain in size in a differentiated double rear module in which we find a new main sensor. Without specifying the manufacturer and type of sensor, it is known that it is 100 megapixels and that he is once again accompanied by two secondary cameras of 8 and 2 megapixelsbeing a wide angle and a macro respectively.

Under the hood we found, and this is no surprise, the new iteration of Huawei’s own operating system with HarmonyOS 4. It is unknown how many years of support it will have since it will ultimately be a mid-range, but it is expected that it will have at least one or two more updates to this system.
