HUAWEI just released the nova 8i, featuring a dynamic and trendy style like its predecessors, while being equipped with powerful new upgrades

From the very start, HUAWEI’s nova series was built to deliver stunning designs and enriched features. Besides that, their phone models were meant to be the ideal choice for everyday consumers, fulfilling their needs for productivity and entertainment.

With a more striking aesthetic design, improved performance and a more intuitive user experience, the HUAWEI nova 8i offers superb user experience. This is because it allows energetic young users to express their fun-loving, passion-driven lifestyle with incredible feature updates.

Here are a few features of the HUAWEI nova 8i that make it so attractive:

1. It comes equipped with an impressive 64 MP AI Quad camera, including a large sensor to capture high-resolution photos

If you're looking to capture DSLR-like photos with crystal clear quality, the HUAWEI nova 8i is fitted with four different lenses at the back, which lets you easily capture all kinds of clear and high-resolution pictures with crisp details.

It even comes with a remarkable 1/1.7-inch sensor. Since a camera's sensor determines the image quality, a larger sensor indicates a stronger capability of processing optical signals, giving it excellent photography capabilities.

The quad rear-camera system includes a 64MP main camera, an 8MP ultra-wide angle camera, a 2MP macro camera, and a 2MP depth camera.

a) Super Wide Angle - High Resolution 120 Ultra Wide-Angle Camera
With regular lenses, you’d have to take one step back at a time, to squeeze everyone’s faces in a small frame. But now, with HUAWEI nova 8i, all you need to do is turn on the Super Wide Angle, and you can take photos like a pro!

b) Super Night Shot 2.0 - Improved Night Shot feature
Featuring upgraded Super Night Shot 2.0 enhancements, the nova 8i allows you to capture superior quality images in any setting, light or dark. You'll never have to worry about light conditions, as the HUAWEI nova 8i adjusts the night mode accordingly so there will be less noise on your photos.

c) Super Selfie AI Beauty Camera with 16MP - Capture & Vlog with style
You can now take your selfies under all kinds of lighting conditions, because HUAWEI nova 8i SuperSelfie AI Beauty Camera is equipped with an ambient colour temperature sensor for detecting ambient light. This allows you to capture every beautiful moment, no matter where you are.

2. Thanks to its industry-leading HUAWEI 66W SuperCharge, this smartphone can be fully charged in just 38 minutes

With the HUAWEI nova 8i, you won't have to wait for hours for it to fully charge, as it can be charged up to 68% with just 20 minutes of charging. If you wait an additional 18 minutes, it'll be 100% charged and ready.

Another great thing about the new HUAWEI 66W SuperCharge technology is that you don't have to worry about it running out of battery life easily, as it is powered by a 4,300mAh battery to support your daily routine.

3. Enjoy an edgeless display with a 6.67" super screen, providing an immersive viewing experience for users

With a 94.7% screen-to-body ratio plus a thinner and larger screen, you can easily enjoy watching videos and playing mobile games in its entirety. The HUAWEI nova 8i's super narrow bezels make it possible for a much fuller view.

The screen is further enhanced with TÜV Rheinland Technology, with 2nd Gen Hardware for maximum protection from harmful blue light. Another feature that offers eye protection is Intelligent Colour Correction Technology, which means you can watch videos for as long as you want.

The 4D curved design features sleek rounded edges, making it ultra-smooth to touch and comfortable to grip. It comes in three striking colours, namely Moonlight Silver, Starry Black, and Interstellar Blue. Plus, the Moonlight Silver variant’s colours on the back changes according to the lighting and angle. :O

4. Experience seamless gaming with the HUAWEI nova 8i's Full-Scene Smart Antenna 2.0 Design

With its built-in seven antenna system with the dedicated antenna on the side specially designed for use in landscape orientation, HUAWEI nova 8i is able to sustain a strong network connection when the user is playing games.

You can even activate Smart Game Assistant on the HUAWEI nova 8i, so you can fully focus on your game and be free from interruptions by enabling the 'Do Not Disturb' feature. If you still want to reply to your messages during your gameplay, there is a feature which provides mini gaming windows and floating windows, so you can chat freely without exiting the game.

One of the worst things that can happen during gameplay is when the smartphone becomes overheated. However, thanks to the HUAWEI nova 8i's high thermal conductivity graphene for heat dissipation, it allows the device to stay at an optimal temperature when gaming.

5. Feel free to store as many photos, videos, and songs as you wish with a capacity of up to 128 GB

If you find yourself constantly clearing your cache or transferring your data to your laptop to make more space, it's clear that you require more storage space. 

The HUAWEI nova 8i comes equipped with a big internal storage capacity of 128GB, providing users with more space to store their favourite songs, photos, and videos.

6. With EMUI 11, you will enjoy robust privacy and security, and encryption for your data

You will enjoy greater security and privacy as apps such as Notepad can be locked safely away from prying eyes. Plus, information for photos such as the device model and photo parameters can be removed before sharing the image to others.

Stay connected with your loved ones via HUAWEI MeeTime, as it supports video calls and screen-sharing across all HUAWEI devices. You can even scribble doodles and notes in real-time, bridging the gap between individuals with a more effective, efficient way of communication.

It's so much easier to take screenshots and screen-recordings with the HUAWEI nova 8i, as you just need to knock on the screen to capture and share it via one click. No longer will you have to press the wrong buttons on the side, or accidentally switch off the screen while doing so!

With the Multi-Window feature, you will be able to operate multiple apps on the same screen, similarly like on a tablet. Together with the Floating Window feature, you can use up to three app windows at once, further boosting your productivity.

Additionally, you can explore everything in the AppGallery and search the app you want to download via Petal Search, which offers a reimagined search experience.
