Huawei Nova 2i launched, quad cameras in tow
The Huawei Maimang 6 was launched last week, and while reports touted it to be launched internationally as the G10 or Mate 10 Lite, it looks like Huawei had a change of mind, and launched it as the Nova 2i in Malaysia during the week.
The Nova series, starting with the original Nova that was launched in September last year, offers mid-range devices in the US$300 price range, and the Nova 2i will continue that tradition.
Details of the Nova 2i are no secret at this point, with the device sporting a 5.9-inch display, with an 18:9 aspect ratio, and 1080x2160 resolution. It's powered by the mid-range in-house Kirin 659, and features 4 GB of RAM, 64 GB of storage, dual rear cameras (16 MP + 2 MP), dual front-facing cameras (13 MP + 2 MP), a rear fingerprint sensor, and a 3340 mAh battery, which may be a disappointment considering that screen size.
The Nova 2i runs on Huawei's EMUI 5.1 skin, which is based on Android Nougat, and will be available in options of Black, Gold, and Blue. Pricing details are unknown but the Maimang 6 was launch with a price tag that translated to about US$365, so we expect something in that region.
