Announcement. Huawei nova 7 SE 5G 乐 版 - aka Lohas Edition, aka Happy Life Edition

The first smartphone introduced by Huawei in 2021 was the Huawei nova 7 SE 5G 乐 活版.

A bit of linguistics.

Automatic translators translate hieroglyphs乐 Version as “Lohas Edition”, as all this smartphone in their news and called. Who is Lohas is not specified. In theory, there is such an abbreviation that stands for “Lifestyles of Health and Sustainability” (Healthy lifestyle and sustainable development).

If we insert spaces between the characters, the translation will change slightly. The result is “Happy Life Edition”. It sounds prettier, but not the fact that it is more correct.

By and large, Lohas is a re-releaseannounced in the spring of 2020, the Huawei nova 7 SE 5G smartphone. The only difference is the different chipset. There was HiSilicon Kirin 820 5G, became HiSilicon Kirin 820E 5G.

The Kirin 820E appears to be slightlya simplified version of the Kirin 820. There is no exact information about the differences. It is only known that Kirin 820 of the three older cores has one working at a frequency of up to 2.36 GHz, and the other two have a frequency of up to 2.22 GHz. And for a beginner, all three cores are limited to 2.22 GHz. I can hypothesize that Kirin 820E is just a “rejection”, ie those chipsets where the older core cannot keep the required frequency. Similar strange "deterioration" of its chipsets in Huawei has already carried out.

The Kirin 820 chipset is powerful, in AnTuTu it gives around 350 thousand points. Kirin 820E will be a little weaker, but I suspect within the measurement error.

Memory. The only option. 8 GB operational, 128 GB constant. There is support for proprietary NM-cards, the Micro-SD card cannot be installed.

Large 6.5 ″ screen with LTPS-matrix and standard refresh rate. High resolution - 1080x2400 (405 ppi). Medium battery 4000 mAh. Very fast charging 40W.

The front camera is embedded in the screen - 16 MP. Behind the classic quad camera 64 + 8 + 2 + 2 MP - the main module, wide-angle, macro, depth sensor.

There is no NFC, our LTE frequencies are not. There is support for 5G networks, but for us it is not particularly relevant yet. Fingerprint scanner on the side.

¥ 2,299 (₽26,100, $ 356) at launch. Not much for Happy Life.
