Huawei Philippines may have recently released a slew of products, but it doesn’t mean it’s about to let up. In fact, the technology giant today held a local media launch for three more devices.

(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.)

The Huawei Nova 8i, Huawei Nova 8, and Huawei MatePad 11 are now official in the Philippines, promising to “help corporate warriors, budding entrepreneurs, and young, passionate Filipinos to conquer their daily adventures and achieve their set goals.”

Unfortunately, the company hasn’t revealed how much the Nova phones will be in the country. That detail should be shared soon enough, though, as the units will be coming August 12; we’ll keep you posted. It’s the tablet that will go on sale first. Priced at P26,999 (around $537 converted), the MatePad 11 will go up for preorder starting tomorrow, August 6, until the 26th.

Huawei Nova 8i and Huawei Nova 8

Being part of the Nova series, the Huawei Nova 8i and Nova 8 are targeted at the young, stylish set that loves to take pictures and videos. They boast a 64-megapixel quad camera with a big CMOS sensor and features such as Raw Domain Super Nightshot, HDR Portrait, TWS Video Voice Remote Recording, and Time-lapse Video Recording to make creating content or recording special moments convenient no matter the scenario.

Even better, both smartphones support 66-watt Huawei SuperCharge tech, so you can top up the battery quickly — and continue shooting, gaming, or whatever it is you’re doing immediately. Special mention to the Nova 8i. It’s the first handset at its price range to get this kind of function.

While the Huawei Nova 8i has a 6.67-inch Full HD screen with a 60Hz refresh rate; a 16-megapixel selfie camera; a 4,300mAh battery; a side-mounted fingerprint sensor; and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 662 chip, the Huawei Nova 8 gets a 6.57-inch 2K curved display with a 90Hz refresh rate; a 32-megapixel front-facing shooter; a 3,800mAh battery; an in-screen fingerprint reader; and a Kirin 820E SoC.
