The HUAWEI nova 8i continues the dynamic and trendy aesthetic style of previous nova i products and comes with powerful upgrades. The HUAWEI nova 8i boasts a more stunning visual design, improved performance, and a more intuitive user experience, allowing energetic young people to express their fun-loving and passion-driven lifestyle. Below are some of the upgrades the HUAWEI nova 8i comes with:

  • Upgraded design: The nova 8i manages to accommodate a 6.67” HUAWEI Edgeless Display in a slim body. A delicate visual effect can be seen on the back of the phone thanks to the NCVM (non-conductive vacuum metallisation) process which, along with the sleek 4D curved design, means the device feels great in the hand.
  • Upgraded photography: HUAWEI nova 8i’s quad rear-camera system includes a 64MP High-res Main Camera, Ultra-Wide Angle Camera, Macro Camera and Depth Camera. It also features upgraded Super Night Shot 2.0 enhancements, allowing you to capture superior quality images in any setting, light or dark.
  • Upgraded fast charging: The HUAWEI nova 8i supports 66W HUAWEI SuperCharge, capable of fully charging the battery in just 38 minutes. It can also be charged 68% in just 20 minutes, perfect for topping up when you’re in a rush.
  • Upgraded field of view: With a 6.67-inch HUAWEI Edgeless Display and an impressive screen-to-body ratio of 94.7%, HUAWEI nova 8i provides an immersive viewing experience, whether for watching movies or playing games. Under Eye Comfort Mode, the nova 8i can further filter out harmful blue light while minimising yellow discolouration on the screen thanks to hardware and software optimization. A 180Hz touch sampling rate has also been added to the screen, making it more sensitive to touch.
  • Upgraded performance: HUAWEI nova 8i comes equipped with a Snapdragon 662 chipset with either 6GB or 8GB RAM and 128GB internal memory.

HUAWEI has yet to reveal the actual release date for the nova 8i except that it will be coming very soon. For more information on the HUAWEI nova 8i, be sure to stay tuned to us here at! While you’re here, why not check out our review of the new HUAWEI MateBook X Pro?
