Huawei is set to launch its latest Nova series smartphones in China at an event to be held this Wednesday. The upcoming Nova 3 and Nova 3i smartphones will also be making their way to the Indian market soon after their debut in China. As confirmed by Amazon India recently, the Nova series smartphones will be launched in India on the 26th of July. Ahead of the launch, press renders and an alleged spec sheet of the Nova 3i have been leaked online.
Huawei Nova 3i: Key Specifications Leaked
According to the leaked spec sheet, the Nova 3i will be powered by a Kirin 710, which is expected to be a mid-range SoC with the AI chops seen in the Kirin 970. For impressive gaming performance, the Nova 3i will come with Huawei’s GPU Turbo technology. In the camera department, Huawei Nova 3i will be equipped with a 16MP + 2MP dual-camera setup on the back and a 24MP + 2MP setup on the front for selfies and video calls. While the Nova 3 will have an identical setup on the front, the rear setup will be a more impressive 16 MP + 24MP unit. While the camera setup will not be as impressive as the Nova 3, the Nova 3i is expected to come with the same AI-powered camera features like AI scene detection and AI-powered Portrait Mode for both the rear- and front-facing cameras. Another key difference between the Nova 3 and Nova 3i smartphones will be the battery capacity. While the Nova 3 will come packed with a 3750mAh capacity battery, the Nova 3i will be equipped with a smaller 3340mAh capacity battery with no support for fast charging.
Huawei Nova 3i: Leaked Press Renders Reveal a Notched FullView Display
The press renders of the Huawei Nova 3i have revealed that the handset will be very similar to the Nova 3 in terms of design. Both the smartphones feature a ‘bezel-less’ FullView display with a notch at the top. On the back of the smartphone, we can see a vertically-stacked dual-camera setup and a circular fingerprint sensor. The renders of the Nova 3i also reveal that the smartphone will come with a host AI-assisted features and up to 6GB of RAM. Previous leaks have suggested the handset will be available in two rather weird memory configurations – 6GB RAM + 64GB storage and 4GB RAM + 128GB storage.
Huawei Nova 3i: Expected Price in India
The Huawei Nova 3i, as we mentioned earlier, is expected to be launched in India as an Amazon-exclusive on the 26th of this month. While the smartphone’s pricing hasn’t been revealed yet, we can expect it to be priced slightly higher than the Huawei P20 Lite. The P20 Lite is currently priced at Rs.17,999 in India, so the Nova 3i could be priced at under the Rs.25,000 mark in India, which would make it a direct rival to the Nokia 7 Plus.
