This time around, it was the Huawei Nova 2i that was seen on the Malaysian department of Vmall, Huawei’s official online retail store. Though it was silently launched, we decide to bring the good news about this device to our beloved readers. The Huawei Nova 2i comes with features that looks like the already launched Huawei Nova 2 and Huawei Nova 2 Plus. Read on as you get to see some important information you might want to know.
Huawei Nova 2i Features
The Huawei Nova 2i comes with a Kirin 659 chipset with octa-core CPU, a 4GB RAM and internal storage of 64GB. It has a 18:9 ratio display, but at the moment all the full features of the display are yet to be disclosed by the brand. The front panel of the Huawei Nova 2i has a minuscular bezels that has the Huawei logo below and a top two camera above it. The front cameras are 13MP + 2MP sensors which gives additional effects for taking selfies.
At the rear panel of the Huawei Nova 2i, you will also find two cameras, having sensors of 16MP and 2MP. But sensors work together to give the best of results when it comes to photography. It also have a fingerprint scanner just below the vertical camera setup, while an LED flash is integrated into the antenna band.

The Huawei Nova 2i promises and interactive experience with the various gestures it will be coming with.

Tapping the display twice with one finger takes a screenshot while tapping twice with two fingers starts screen recording.
