Huawei has confirmed through a press release that it will be launching the Huawei Nova 7i smartphone in Malaysia on Feb. 14. While it will be arriving as the first phone in the Nova 7 series, it won’t be an entirely new device. Huawei is good at rebranding and it has done the same with Nova 7i. It will be arriving in Malaysia as a rebadged edition of the Huawei Nova 6 SE that was unveiled along with the Nova 6 smartphone in December 2019. There is a possibility that other global markets may also receive it as Huawei Nova 7i.
According to the Chinese manufacturer, Huawei Nova 7i is a mid-range device that flaunts a 48-megapixel main camera in its quad-camera system. The setup includes an ultrawide shooter and a dedicated lens for capturing macro shots.
One of the key features of the Nova 7i is “MeeTime” which ensures impressive audio and video quality through the front even in dim light conditions. It also claims to be one of the best when it comes to using it as a selfie video camera phone.
Due to the current US trade ban, the Huawei Nova 7i won’t be arriving with Google Mobile Services (GMS). Hence, users will arrive with Huawei AppGallery and users will have to rely on loading APK files.
Being a rebranded version of the Huawei Nova 6 SE, the Nova 7i will be arriving with a 6.4-inch IPS LCD punch-hole display that carries support for full HD+ resolution. The device is fitted with a side-mounted fingerprint reader.
The Android 10 OS comes preloaded on the Nova 6 SE. The Kirin 810 chipset is present under its hood with 8 GB of RAM. It comes with 128 GB of storage. There is a shared SIM slot for additional storage. The device is fitted with a quad camera setup that includes a 48-megapixel main lens, an 8-megapixel ultrawide sensor, a 2-megapixel macro lens, and a 2-megapixel depth sensor. It has a front-facing camera of 16-megapixel. The phone ships with 4,200mAh battery that carries support for 40W fast charging.
