Huawei brings beautifully crafted smartphones both in flagship as well as mid-range categories. The Chinese tech leader is expected to take the wraps off a duo of Nova 3 and Nova 3i on July 26th. While, we already talked about the Nova 3 design having dual camera setup on both sides, now is the turn of Nova 3i.

Interestingly, AliExpress has offered yet another device for sale on their listing before a proper launch, following the Mi A2 Lite. The specs sheet of Nova 3i by Huawei seems to be a near-flagship device with notch-free design.

Huawei Nova 3i Features

The Nova 3i brings a fairly large 6.3-inch IPS LCD panel on the front with 2160 x 1080 FHD+ resolution in the trendy 18:9 aspect ratio. In contrast to Nova 3, we can’t see a notch but really trimmed bezels all around offer an all-screen smartphone.

Huawei has introduced the new Kirin 710 SoC under the hood to power up the device along with two RAM options of 4GB and 6GB. However, the internal memory is set to 64GB for either RAM combo with an option to expand by up to 256GB.

Huwei Nova 3i is a dual SIM supported device by default that runs Huawei’s proprietary Emotion UI on top of Android 8.1 Oreo. The battery capacity is set at 3,650 mAh, non-removable, which is impressive with a 7.3mm chassis. It will likely support Huawei’s SuperCharge technology.

On the camera front, the Huawei Nova 3i packs a dual rear-mounted dual camera setup comprising of 16MP RGB sensor + 2MP monochrome sensor combo. The device will also hold a dual camera setup at the front which is a 24MP + 2MP combo. The AI-related beautifying features are also present.

Pricing and Availability

As mentioned above, the Nova 3i is listed on AliExpress with two pricing options as per the storage variants; the 4GB/64GB model is priced at $480 (~PKR 61,400) while the 6GB/64GB variant will come with a slightly higher price tag of $520 (~PKR 66,500).
