Review: HUAWEI nova 10 SE



Nova is a word derived from the Latin word “novas”, which means every rising star is born to shine. True to the word, the HUAWEI nova 10 SE from the nova 10 series, is indeed a smartphone that shines, whether it is the UI, the build quality, the photography capabilities, or its overall performance.

On the front, you get a 6.67-inch OLED HUAWEI Full-view Display that offers a 90 Hz refresh rate and up to 270 Hz of the touch sampling rate. You get a pixel density of 395PPI and a resolution of 1080-by-2400 pixels.

The overall design and build quality is very good. It measures just 7.39 mm in thickness, weighs 184 gms, and comes in three different colour options – Starry Silver, Starry Black, and Mint Green. The review unit we received was the Starry Silver variant.

On the right edge, you get the volume rockers and the power button, while on the bottom edge, you get the dual SIM slot, the USB-C port, and the speaker grille, along with a noise-cancelling microphone. On the top edge, you get another noise-cancelling microphone.

Just above the display, you get a 16MP Portrait Camera with an aperture of f/2.2. The front camera offers a wide range of modes such as Night, Portrait, Time-Lapse, Filter, Smiley Face Snap, Selfie Mirror, Audio Control, Timer, and Gesture Photo.

Turning the phone around will get you to the triple camera setup at the rear. This includes a 108MP High-Res Camera with an aperture of f/1.9, an 8 MP Ultra-Wide Depth Camera with an aperture of f/2.2, and a 2 MP Macro Camera with an aperture of f/2.4. The rear camera setup offers EIS for videos.

You also get up to 10X digital zoom, and camera modes such as Ultra Wide Angle Lens, Super Macro, Large aperture, Night View, Portrait, Professional, Slow Motion, Panorama, Time-Lapse, Filter, Watermark, High-Res, Document Correction, AI Photo, Off Screen Snapshots, Smiley Face Snapshots, Audio Control, Timed Snapshots, Dual-View Video, and Continuous Shots.

Under the hood, the phone is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 680G 4G SoC. You also get 8GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage. EMUI 12.0.1 powers the overall user interface of the device, which has become very slick and easy to use over time. For all your app requirements, you get HUAWEI’s AppGallery and Petal Search. We were able to install all our favourite apps with ease, including Microsoft Outlook, Google Maps, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Linkedin, and more.

We used the phone on a day-to-day basis as our primary phone for over a week. We did not encounter any lags, stutters, or screen freeze at any point in time. All the apps worked as they were intended to, and we did not come across any app crashes either.

The camera module on the HUAWEI nova 10 SE is pretty good for a mid-ranger. We were able to capture some really good shots using the rear cameras of the device. Even under low light conditions, the cameras were able to capture some good shots as seen below:

or a price of AED 1299, the HUAWEI nova 10 SE is a worthy mid-ranger that offers some really great features, build quality, and user interface.

Sony Launches FE 24-50mm F2.8 G, a Compact, Large Aperture F2.8 G Lens with High-Performance Optics



Sony Middle East and Africa has announced the release of its new compact 35mm full-frame compatible α (Alpha) E-mount lens, FE 24-50mm F2.8 G (product name SEL2450G) standard zoom with F2.8 maximum aperture over the entire zoom range. Despite its small and lightweight body, it achieves the high-resolution performance and beautiful bokeh that can be expected from a large aperture G Lens with F2.8. It covers a focal length of 24 mm to 50 mm, allowing you to capture everything from still images such as everyday snapshots, and portraits to video shooting, all in high quality but with a design that will easily fit in the smallest of kit bags.

With the latest optical and mechanical design, the dimensions have been kept compact with a filter diameter of φ67 mm, maximum diameter of 74.8 mm, length of 92.3 mm, and weight of approximately 440 g. Sharp and detailed images at all focal lengths are achieved thanks to the arrangement of four aspherical lenses and two pieces of ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass, so that aberrations such as chromatic aberration, are reduced, achieving high-resolution performance from the centre to the corner. FE 24-50mm F2.8 G uses an 11-blade circular aperture which together with the optimisation of spherical aberration provides the beautiful, soft and smooth bokeh that is characteristic of the G Lens series. It has a minimum shooting distance of 0.19 m (AF) at the wide end and a maximum magnification of 0.30 x (AF) offering high-quality close-up shooting.

The quality is evident through the AF (auto focus) whereby, equipped with two linear motors, it achieves high speed, high precision, high tracking, and quiet focusing. It also supports high-speed continuous shooting with AF/AE tracking of up to 120 frames per second for the full-frame mirrorless camera Alpha 9 III. For those wanting a solid video performance, AF tracking is available for high frame rate 4K 120p or FHD 240p movie recording where critical focus control is required, plus it supports in-body Active Mode image stabilisation for steady shooting while walking. It is also compatible with the focus breathing compensation on camera bodies, allowing for high-quality video expression.

Intuitive manual focus is achieved thanks to the adoption of linear response MF which allows smooth and superior image expression. FE 24-50mm F2.8 G is equipped with user-friendly functions such as a customisable focus hold button, aperture ring, aperture click ON/OFF switch, and focus mode switch, offering high operability and comprehensive control. Plus, for further ease of use, they are designed to be dust and moisture-proof with a fluorine coating which prevents dirt from sticking to the front surface of the lens.

 The new FE 24-50mm F2.8 G will be available in the region from Q2 2024.

HONOR Says its Eye-Tracking Features Can Move a Car



HONOR has introduced an AI-powered eye-tracking feature that can move a car without a driver inside. This experiment, demonstrated by an automotive engineer, uses the eye-tracking feature of the HONOR Magic6 Pro to control a car based on the user’s eye movement.

A video by Autocar, available on YouTube, showcases this innovative technology. The HONOR Magic6 Pro is equipped with four commands that can be activated by eye gaze, allowing the car to start the engine, turn it off, and move forward or backwards. After focusing on a specific button for 2-3 seconds, the corresponding command is activated, and the car responds accordingly.

HONOR says that this demonstration is a testament to the company’s belief that AI can transform the way humans interact with devices in the future. HONOR has announced that its MWC Launch Event will be on February 25th. HONOR will also host an AI Panel with industry partners such as Qualcomm to unveil more discoveries about the future of AI. This event will take place on February 26th at 17:00 (CET) at MWC 2024. Find out more at this link:
