    Huawei Nova 8i Launch in India

The Nova 8i is now available for pre-order and will be released on July 21 in the country. However, there is no information about the device’s worldwide availability. Let’s take a look at all the specs that this device has surfaced with. 

    Huawei Nova 8i Price in India 

    In Malaysia, Huawei Nova 8i is priced at MYR 1,299 (about Rs. 23,300) for the single 8GB + 128GB storage variant. The phone is available in three colours, which include Interstellar Blue, Moonlight Silver, and Starry Black. It includes a gift bundle of entertainment, three months of VIP access to Huawei Music, one month of 200GB Huawei Cloud Storage etc.

    Huawei Nova 8i Design

    In terms of appearance, the Huawei Nova 8i definitely more unique compared to all the generic kinds of smartphones that we are seeing these days. The glossy rear panel has got a circular camera module, housing the quad-rear camera setup. The rear panel features curved edges, which makes it very comfortable to hold. There is a fingerprint sensor on the right edge on top of the power button along with the volume rocker. Moving down to the bottom, there is a Type-C charging port, a single firing speaker, SIM Tray and the top side features a 3.5mm headphone jack. 

    Huawei Nova 8i Display

    With a 6.67-inch Edgeless LCD display, the Huawei nova 8i sports a beautiful design. It’s a punch-hole screen with an FHD+ resolution. Because of its ultra-thin bezels, the “Edgeless design” stands out. It offers a touch sampling rate of 180 Hz for a better gaming experience. The display is running on a 60Hz refresh rate only that you must note here, which is a little disappointing. 

    Huawei Nova 8i Processor

    The Qualcomm Snapdragon 662 processor is at the heart of it, together with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. Since we have so many powerful smartphones today, this chipset turns out to be less powerful.

    Further, the Huawei Nova 8i is running on Android 10 based on EMUI 11, which is again disappointing. Also, you don’t have Google Play services here. As for the connectivity, the Huawei Nova 8i sports 4G networks. 

    Huawei Nova 8i Camera

    A quad-camera system is housed in a circular camera ring at the back. A 64MP main lens with an f/1.9 aperture, an 8MP ultra-wide lens, a 2MP depth sensor, and a 2MP macro unit round out the package. The overall picture quality won’t be that great and you will be getting slightly darker pictures even during the day.  It has a 16MP selfie camera with an f/2.0 aperture on the front.

    Huawei Nova 8i Battery

    Huawei Nova 8i supports 66W SuperCharge fast charging. According to the manufacturer, the smartphone can be charged up to 60% in 17 minutes and 100% in 38 minutes. With a 4300 mAh battery, the nova 8i is a perfect companion for everyday use while also allowing players to push the limits of everyday gaming experiences.

    Huawei Nova 8i First Impressions

    If you are a Huawei user, it won’t be difficult for you to get going with the Huawei Nova 8i since it doesn’t feature Google Play Services. Also, there is a normal refresh rate and average chipset along with the absence of 5G connectivity. Considering all these shortcomings, it is better not to wait for the Huawei Nova 8i and look for something else in the Indian market.
