Huawei, the Chinese tech giant is preparing for the launch of a mid-range smartphone under the Nova series called Huawei Nova 8i in South East Asian markets like Malaysia, the Philippines, etc. The company also confirmed some specifications in a briefing with Playfuldroid. The smartphone is very well targeted to youth with an attractive design. Interestingly Huawei will use Qualcomm Snapdragon processor in this smartphone, which is happening after quite a long time in their smartphones. So in this article let’s have a closer look at this upcoming Huawei Nova 8i.
Huawei Nova 8i Expected Specifications:
The color which we saw in the rendering appears to be called Moonlight Silver, one of the three potential color options for the next Huawei Nova 8i. Starry Black and Interstellar Blue are the other two colors.
The Huawei Nova 8i has a centrally aligned circular camera housing around the back of the phone, similar to what we saw on the Huawei Mate 30 Pro. It sports a quad-camera system with a 64-megapixel main camera with an f/1.9 aperture and a big 1/1.7” sensor size.

A single selfie camera is housed in a pill-shaped cutout on the upper-left corner of the Huawei Nova 8i’s screen. It will be a 6.67-inch diagonal LCD display with FHD+ screen resolution, DCI-P3 colour gamut coverage, and hardware-enhanced blue light protection from the second generation. More noteworthy is the phone’s ultra-immersive 94.7 percent screen-to-body ratio, which provides users with a near-full-screen experience.
The Huawei Nova 8i will be powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 662 mobile platform and a good 4,300mAh battery with 66W Huawei SuperCharge technology to accommodate everyday use. A full charge from 0 to 100% will take only 38 minutes, according to Huawei.
The Huawei Nova 8i will come pre-installed with EMUI 11 (based on Android 10) on the software side. In the near future, it will most likely be upgradable to Huawei’s proprietary HarmonyOS.
