Premium features at an affordable price.

Huawei has unveiled its latest mid-range smartphone, the nova 2i, featuring a Huawei first: front and back dual-lens cameras. It is the first device with the new Huawei FullView Display technology on its 5.9 inch screen. The 83% screen-to-body ratio and 18:9 aspect provides a widescreen viewing experience for crisp, clear and bright images.

Huawei Australia managing director, Eric Zhai said, “We know what is essential to today’s consumers, and we created a new device that packs powerful features to keep up. Designed to help you engage with everyone, wherever they are in the world, the Huawei nova 2i sets a new standard in innovation with its incredible performance, stylish design and advanced camera features.”

Launched initially with the Huawei P9 in April 2016, Huawei’s dual-lens camera redefined smartphone photography. The front-facing 13MP/2MP selfie camera features a new Selfie Toning Flash, which will give users studio quality lighting for more artistic and vibrant images. The rear-facing camera combines a 16MP lens and a 2MP lens. Both dual-lens cameras feature hardware-level bokeh for crisper, cleaner and more artistic photos and improved performance in low-light situations.

Powered by an 8-core Kirin 659 chipset, 4GB of RAM and 64GB of ROM, the Huawei nova 2i is capable of running several applications simultaneously while streaming content. The UX is deeply integrated with Huawei’s Android-7 based EMUI to provide a smooth, seamless experience by utilising machine learning to optimise performance based on user behaviour. The deep integration between hardware and software means the Huawei nova 2i’s 3,340mAh battery is long lasting.

Additionally, its smart fingerprint sensor utilises machine learning to become more accurate and secure with every use. The Huawei nova 2i also features the company’s proprietary Huawei Histen audio system.

The Huawei nova 2i will be available in JB Hi-Fi, Harvey Norman and participating retailers from October 25, 2017 (SRP $499) and in Vodafone from November.
