The Huawei Nova 2i is a brand new high mid-range phone first of its kind in Nepal to sport a quad (4) camera setup: it features dual lenses for both front and rear. It is has been recently launched in Nepal by Huawei Nepal.
The Huawei nova 2i is bringing 18:9 full view display with minimum bezels to the mid-range smartphone along with 4 cameras at a price of only Rs 33900 only. And today I will share my hands-on impression on Nova 2i.
First thing first, when I got the device in my hands It felt premium. Thanks to full-metal uni-body design and 2.5D curved glass. The all-metal device has a fingerprint sensor on the back that leaves the all-glass front smooth with no distraction. Talking about the display, it has a lot of screen for the size. A skinny tall look with the size of 5.9” in 5.5 ” body. With 18:9 aspect ratio the device feels like flagship and narrow body makes it easy to hold. However metal unibody on Huawei Nova 2i does make it feel a little slippery but that can be solved with a case or a skin.
The display is sharp and auto brightness is on point with well-saturated color. Nova 2i does not have the brightest display in this price category but you will be able to use your device under direct sunlight.
The Nova 2i with a new octa-core Kirin 659 SoC, Mali-T830 MP2, 4GB of RAM, and 64GB of storage performance feels smooth for now. We will check how much it can hold on full review. The phone also runs on an updated version of EMUI, version 5.1 based on Android 7.0 Nougat. There are some bloatware but you can uninstall them.
Checking out the camera, we get a 16-megapixel primary sensor in rear and 13-megapixel in front. Both camera are supported with a 2-megapixel secondary sensor, which is basically for depth sensing to give you Bokeh effect. The camera app also has a lot feature, we’ll explore camera in detail in the full review. For now, check some image samples we took from the device.
We’ll be testing the Nova 2i over the next few weeks to see how good it is and how much value it offers compared to other smartphones in its price range, so stay tuned for our full review. Until then let us know in the comments section below on what you think about the new Huawei 2i?
