This upcoming handset is ultimately a rebranded version of the Huawei Nova 6 SE which was launched in China last year.
It is an interesting mid-ranger with powerful specs and a pretty unique rear design. The only drawback is that the device will not be pre-loaded with licensed Google apps and services under the hood.
Today, Huawei has finally revealed the price of this highly-anticipated handset. Surprisingly, the device will be priced at just RM1,099 (US$265) in Malaysia.
Honestly, that’s pretty much a steal given that the sole 8GB+128GB model of the Nova 6 SE retails at 2,199 Yuan (US$312) in China.
Hopefully, the same aggressive pricing will be available for other markets as well.
Huawei Nova 7i Design
The Huawei Nova 7i deploys a typical hole-punched style display for it’s front panel. It will feature a single 16 megapixels selfie camera.
On the back panel, there is a squarish camera module which houses 4 camera sensors including a 48 megapixels main snapper, an 8 megapixels ultra wide lens, a 2 megapixels macro lens, as well as a 2 megapixels depth sensor for portraits. Below the camera module sits a LED flash for low-light conditions.
Huawei Nova 7i Specifications
The Huawei Nova 7i is expected to come with a 6.4-inch IPS LCD display with FHD+ screen resolution. It will also be employing a side-mounted fingerprint sensor instead of a under display fingerprint sensor.
Under the hood, the device is driven by a mid-ranger Kirin 810 SoC coupled with 8GB worth of RAM and 128GB onboard storage which is expandable by up to 256GB.
Software-wise, it will run on the latest EMUI 10 based on Android 10 OS. It will be fueled by a 4,200mAh battery which supports up to 40W fast-charging.
