The successor of the Nova 2i has finally launched in Nepal. The Huawei Nova 3i is a much-anticipated smartphone in the Nepali market, with a lot of takers. The smartphone is more suited for those who don’t want to spend big bucks on a Nova 3 or don’t want a relatively sluggish Nova 3e. The Nova 3i offers substantial improvement over Nova 2i and Nova 3e in performance and camera department.
The Nova 3i offers a lot of similarities with the Nova 3, like the display size at 6.3″, the FHD+ resolution and the 19.5:9 aspect ratio. The dimensions for both are also pretty much similar, although this one gets a smaller 3340mAH battery. Powering the phone is a kirin 710 SoC which is the latest in-house chipset from Huawei that offers a huge upgrade in performance and power efficiency over Kirin 659. It is aided by Mali-G51 MP4 GPU and GPU Turbo technology.
On the Nova 3i, you only get a 4GB RAM and 128GB storage variant. The storage is expandable through a micro USB, although it does take up one of the SIM slots. The fingerprint sensor is rear mounted alongside the dual cameras on the back. It does miss out on an ac WiFi but does get sensors like accelerometer, gyro, proximity, and compass.
The rear side of the phone gets a 16MP f/2.2 lens and a 2MP depth sensor. It’s also capable of [email protected] video recording. As the same suggests, the front also gets dual cameras, one 24MP, and the other 2MP depth sensor. Judging from its predecessor, we can all but expect a really good set of cameras.
