The upcoming Nova 8i is the budget-friendly edition of the Huawei Nova 8 series. Its specs and images were previously leaked, and the phone was just benchmarked on a popular platform. Huawei also has it listed on their official website, pointing to a launch right around the corner.

Huawei Nova 8i will make its official debut on July 7 in Malaysia. While the formal announcements have not been made yet, the specification sheet and the web listing leave little to the imagination. Here’s what the Nova 8i has to offer.

So far, the Nova 8 series has featured distinctive oval-shaped camera housings across the board. But the Nova 8i borrows its design language from the Huawei Mate 30 Pro. We’re looking at a ring-style camera bump containing a four-camera matrix and flanked by an LED flash. The shell is also chamfered along the edges; the corners are precision rounded. Nova 8i comes in three gorgeous finishes — an iridescent Moonlight Silver, Interstellar Blue, and Starry Black. A side-facing thumbprint reader is etched into the frame.

Flip the phone over to find a 6.67” IPS LCD screen. It’s almost edgeless, bound in super-narrow bezels. The screen-to-body ratio of the Huawei new model for 2021 comes out at an excellent 94.7%. The panel delivers a 1080P resolution at a standard 60Hz refresh rate. A wide pill shape is punched through a corner of the screen, containing a 16MP selfie camera and presumably a wide-angle front camera (official sources haven’t confirmed it yet.)

The rear camera array is made of a 64MP wide, 8MP ultrawide, and a pair of 2MP macro and portrait sensors. Huawei Nova 8i’s software supports AI, Super Night Shot, and Bokeh shooting modes.

The Qualcomm Snapdragon 662 and a 4300 mAh battery power the Huawei Nova 8i. You get 8GB of memory and 128GB of internal storage. 66W SuperCharge support can deliver a full top-up in only 38 minutes. Lastly, the Android10-based EMUI runs on the Nova 8i out of the box.
