Technology giant Huawei has launched several products for the Asia-Pacific region. But while some of them are already up for preorder in the Philippines, there’s one that’s yet to go on sale locally.

(Update, August 12: The Huawei Nova 8i and Nova 8 have been priced in the Philippines! See how much they are and what the preorder freebies are here.)

(Update, August 5: The Huawei Nova 8i, Huawei Nova 8 global version, and Huawei MatePad 11 have been launched in the Philippines! And the tablet will go on sale first. Details here.)

(Update, August 3: The Huawei Nova 8i, Nova 8, and MatePad 11 are finally launching in the Philippines! Save the date.)

The company confirmed that the newly announced Huawei Nova 8i — along with the MatePad 11, MateView, and MateView GT — is going to arrive in the Philippines, though it stopped short of revealing the pricing and availability details.

A quick look at other markets shows the Nova 8i in Interstellar Blue, Moonlight Silver, and Starry Black colors have gone official in Malaysia with a suggested retail price of RM1,299 (roughly P15,508 or $313).

Looks-wise? The smartphone is part Nova and part Mate, what with shades and aesthetics that are targeted at young consumers and a camera design that’s reminiscent of the Mate 30 and Mate 40 series.

As with other handsets from the series, the Huawei Nova 8i focuses on the unit’s camera prowess. The 64-megapixel primary sensor is assisted by an 8-megapixel lens that can take 120-degree ultra-wide-angle shots and two 2-megapixel ones for macro and bokeh effects.

The 4,300mAh battery can be fully topped up in a mere 38 minutes because of the 66-watt Huawei SuperCharge feature. The screen is edgeless and big at 6.67 inches and gets a punch-hole cutout for the 16-megapixel selfie camera. The power key also serves as the fingerprint sensor. And at the center of it all is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 662 chip paired with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage.
