Huawei Nova 7i Set To Launch On February 14 In Malaysia

Updated for price and pre-order information

Huawei Malaysia will be launching a new smartphone to the Malaysian market this Valentine's Day; the Huawei Nova 7i. Malaysia will be the first country after China to get the device (though it's known as the Nova 6 SE instead) and some of the aspects to look forward to with the Nova 7i is that it uses the Kirin 810 chipsets instead of the 710 version, and that it comes with a quad camera setup with a 48MP main camera.

It seems that there won't be any Google Mobile Services on the Nova 7i either, so the hype will mainly be on its power and camera. Other than the main 48MP camera, other camera specs to look out for include a 8MP ultra wide-angle, 2MP macro, and 2MP depth-of-field camera. Its selfie camera is at 16MP.

The device aims to be the best in videos as their selfie video camera phone comes with extra features like stickers, filters, effects, and many more. Perfect for TikTok users, which is available on the Huawei App Gallery of course. There's also be a built-in video chat feature called MeeTime, similar to Apple's FaceTime, as another way to circumvent the many apps you can't use on the device like Messenger or WhatsApp.

Other specs to look out for include the 4200mAh battery that also comes with 40W Huawei SuperCharge that can charge up to 70% of the device's battery in half an hour. The Malaysian version of the Nova 7i will come with 8GB RAM and 128GB internal storage as well.

UPDATE: The device will be priced at RM1099 and those who pre-order the phone from 14 February until 21 February will receive a Huawei Band 4.
