On Valentine’s Day, a new Nova phone has gone official in Malaysia, with preorders that are bundled with a Huawei Band 4 up till the 21st and availability scheduled for February 22.
(Update, March 7: It’s coming to the Philippines! Read Huawei Nova 7i priced at P13,990 [$277] in the Philippines.)
Priced at RM1,099 (around P13,410 or $265), the Huawei Nova 7i is a rebranded Nova 6 SE, which was launched in China in December 2019. If it does arrive in the Philippines, it might go on sale for P13,990 ($277) or P14,990 ($297).
The Nova 7i is powered by an 8nm Kirin 810 chip. The SoC is said to be better than the Qualcomm Snapdragon 730 processor found in devices such as the OPPO Reno 2 and Redmi K30. It’s paired with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of expandable storage.
On the back of the smartphone is a squircle four-camera module bannered by a 48-megapixel primary sensor. In front is a 16-megapixel, f/2.0 selfie camera in a punch-hole on the upper-left side of a 6.4-inch display.
The Huawei Nova 7i is fitted with a 4,200mAh battery with support for 40-watt fast charging. It’s also running Android 10 with EMUI layered on top. And like on the Huawei Nova 5T and Y9s, a fingerprint sensor sits along the right edge of the unit.
