Huawei Nova and Huawei Nova Plus are mid-range smartphones produced by Huawei. They were announced and released at Internationale Funkausstellung Berlin (IFA) on 1 September 2016. Huawei has announced that it will launch a new smartphone called nova 7i on February 14 in Malaysia. However, this isn’t really a new smartphone and is actually a re-branded nova 6 SE that was unveiled in China earlier last month.
The Huawei nova 7i will have a Kirin 810 SoC at the helm with 8GB RAM and 128GB storage. It will run Android 10-based EMUI 10 out of the box, but due to the US ban, it will not ship with Google’s services.
The nova 7i will sport a 6.4″ FHD+ LCD with a punch hole in the upper-left corner for the 16MP selfie camera. Around the back, it will have a quad camera setup comprising a 48MP main, 8MP ultrawide, 2MP macro, and 2MP depth sensor units.
The nova 7i will feature a side-mounted fingerprint reader and pack a 4,200 mAh battery with 40W fast charging support, which will charge the battery from flat to 70% in 30 minutes.
Huawei’s Malaysian branch hasn’t revealed the price of the nova 7i yet, so we’ll have to wait until Valentine’s Day for that. But in China, the nova 6 SE is sold for CNY2,199 ($320/€290), which translates to RM1,295 ($315/€290) at current exchange rates.
