Huawei Nova 2i officially introduced with 18:9 FullView display, four cameras
Google has the next big launch event in the smartphone industry, but Huawei is supposed to follow shortly after with its own Mate 10 announcement, which is set to go live on October 16.
Until then, the Chinese company decided to keep up the hype in some parts of the world where its products are selling like hot cakes. After unveiling the Huawei Maimang less than two weeks ago, a Chinese version of the rumored Mate 10 Lite, another device has been recently launched in China.
The new smartphone is called Nova 2i and looks exactly like the rumor Huawei Mate 10 Lite. It even has the same specs, so it's a bit confusing that Huawei is using all those names for the same product, though it may be understandable since different markets have different tastes and needs (and that includes naming schemes).
Huawei Nova 2i is solid mid-ranger that flaunts a huge 5.9-inch FullView display with 18:9 ratio and full HD (1080p) resolution. On the inside, the smartphone packs a powerful Kirin 659 processor, 4GB RAM, and 64GB expandable storage.
The phone comes with four cameras, two on the front (13MP+2MP) and two on the back side (16MP+2MP). The Nova 2i is powered by a 3,340 mAh battery and runs Android Nougat with EMUI 5.1 on top, which might turn into Android Oreo if Huawei decides so.
The smartphone is now listed at major retailer Vmall's website, but there are no price or availability details confirmed yet. Huawei Nova 2i will be available in Black, Blue and White, pretty standard colors for a mid-range smartphone.
