Huawei Philippines’ current star might just become brighter with the company’s partnership with Smart Communications. The telco will be offering the Huawei Nova 2i, and we all know that a telco’s push can go a long way in increasing the likelihood of a device’s commercial success.

(Update, October 23, 2017: Smart Communications’ order page for the Huawei Nova 2i is up! And it’s confirmed that the phone will be available starting Plan 399. See the complete details here.)

Smart is advertising Plan 799 for the Nova 2i. That already comes with free 8GB of data, 40 minutes of calls and unlimited text messages to all networks, and access to Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp, and Viber. Pay P500 (around $10) a month for the smartphone on top of the P799 ($16) monthly service fee, and you should be shelling out P1,299 ($25) per month for 30 months.
