Under the hood is a Kirin 985 chipset, coupled with 8GB RAM and up to 256GB storage.

Huawei Nova 7 has a slightly smaller 6.53-inch FHD+ AMOLED display with a single hole-punch cutout housing a 32MP selfie camera. The phone is powered by a Kirin 985 chipset, just like the Pro model. It is similar to the Nova 7 Pro in the camera department as well, although its 8MP telephoto lens only supports 3x optical zoom and 5x hybrid zoom. The Nova 7 will be available in China from April 28 in black, red, silver, purple, and green colors. Huawei has priced the 128GB version of the phone at 2,999 yuan ($425), while the 256GB version will go for 3,399 yuan ($480).
The most affordable member of the Nova 7 family is the Nova 7 SE. It features a 6.5-inch FHD+ IPS display with a hole-punch cutout for the 16MP selfie camera. Under the hood, the Nova 7 SE runs on a Kirin 820 5G chipset, paired with 8GB of RAM and up to 256GB storage. At the rear is a quad-camera array with a 64MP main camera, an 8MP ultra-wide-angle shooter, 2MP macro lens, and a 2MP depth sensor. The Nova 7 SE has been priced at 2,399 yuan ($340) for the 128GB version and 2,799 yuan ($395) for the 256GB version. Like the Nova 7 and 7 Pro, the Nova 7 SE will go on sale in China starting April 28. Huawei hasn't announced any plans of launching the Nova 7 series phones in markets outside China yet.
