[UPDATE 1] HUAWEI slashes RM200 off the nova 2i’s SRP; the Selfie Superstar is now priced at just RM1099!
The HUAWEI nova 2i which was launched back in September 2017 is getting a rather large price cut of RM200. As more and more competition hit the deck this year, the price cut is an inevitable step to remain competitive in the very saturated smartphone market here in Malaysia.
Now priced at RM1099, down from RM1299, the HUAWEI nova 2i represents pretty good value for money. HUAWEI has just pushed updates to bring face unlock and AR lens to keep the device relevant in 2018. Whether it will receive an update to Android 8.0 Oreo remains to be seen though.
The specifications of the HUAWEI nova 2i are decent, with a Kirin 659 chipset and 4GB of RAM to keep things going. The 3340 mAh battery should keep the device alive for a day or more, while EMUI 5.1 with machine learning algorithms promises an optimized user experience. And oh, that 18:9 5.93″ FullView display that offers an impressive 83% screen-to-body ratio.
If you get the HUAWEI nova 2i this Chinese New Year season, you will also be getting freebies worth RM499. It will be available in Graphite Black, Prestige Gold and the not-so-limited Limited Edition Aurora Blue at all authorized HUAWEI Experience Stores, Display Zones, telco partners and distributors across Malaysia.
[UPDATE 1]: Further RM100 reduction!
The HUAWEI nova 2i has just seen a further price reduction of RM100 for Mother’s Day. Priced at RM999 now, the HUAWEI nova 2i is a good buy made better. You may be thinking, what good is a device from September 2017? Well you may rest assured that this is one of HUAWEI’s best mid-range devices, as they have still yet to announce a device with a stronger chipset. Do get this for your parents for better selfies from them!
Pokdepinion: If you are really love taking selfies, this is a great option that does nice bokeh. However battery life appears to be a sore point due to the machine learning algorithms sucking up a fair deal of power.
