Huawei Nova 9 will use enhanced L2HC encoder for improved audio quality
September 23rd is approaching, it will bring the next Huawei Nova series smartphones- Nova 9 and 9 Pro. The reports show that it has been already stored in the company’s offline stores, as it has promised to provide sufficient units on its online and offline channels.

Now our fruitful Weibo tipster- ChrysanthemumFans has brought us new specifications related to its encoders. To be mention, encoders are the software features that compresses and decompresses digital audio data corresponding to the audio file setup or streaming audio setup.
Users who are mostly engaged with their audio accessories will surely like this feature as it’ll be a strong point for Huawei Nova 9 marketing.
Huawei Nova 9 Encoder Specifications:
L2HC is a Huawei-proprietary HD audio codec format that provides higher bandwidth and adaptive bit rate (320 kbps to 960 kbps). It features a low latency, constant bit rate, strong anti-interference capability, high signal-to-noise ratio (SNR), and wide dynamic range, providing users with an optimized music streaming experience.
With Nova 9, Huawei has further improved self-developed L2HC encoder and Bluetooth encoder. Furthermore, it provides 90kbps audio synchromesh for wireless audio accessories. Besides, it preserved the sound effect quality and lessens the audio damage during transmission.
Its smart feature called “Smart HD setting” is available in the smart life app or phone’s Bluetooth setting. Enabling this feature will let the device focus on the sound quality while disabling it will focus on the smoothness of transmission.
Audio Sound Quality: High bandwidth and adaptive bit rate deliver a high-quality sound. When the user turns on this mode, it sprouts more effective audion creat and a world of sound just into the ears.
Transmission Smoothness: It referred to a continued music playback without any breaks. In case the BT range isn’t strong, it switches to a low bit rate and delivers a breakless soundtrack to the connected device.
However, the high-tech encoders are mainly sound quality-centered, allowing the slightest decrease from the original quality. It means, if the Smart HD function is enabled, the listener will get clearer sound effects than in disabling conditions.
Besides, the tipster further revealed that the new encoder will provide reduces the transmission latency and well synchronized the frame and audio in high-speed streaming such as games, or live videos.
