Huawei‘s latest smartphone has just arrived in the Philippines. Going by the name Nova 2i, the new midranger from the company has bokeh-enabled cameras — both front and back.
The Huawei Nova 2i has two trendy features, which are currently popular among 2017 smartphones: dual cameras and a near-borderless display. It has a 5.9-inch Full HD+ screen called FullView and has a tall aspect ratio of 18:9.
While it’s part of the dual-camera family of phones, the Nova 2i actually has four cameras — two at the back and another two in the front. The rear has a combo of 16- and 2-megapixel cameras, and the front has 13- and 2-megapixel image sensors. The extra sensors on both enable features like artificial bokeh (perfect for doing portraits) and refocusing after taking shots. Not only that, the rear is capable of shooting in 4K and has optical image stabilization.
Powered by a home-baked Huawei Kirin 659 processor with 4GB of memory and 64GB of expandable storage, the Nova 2i positions itself in the middle segment of Android smartphones. Its sizeable 3340mAh battery should be enough to last a whole day with moderate use.
Other features include a fingerprint reader, metal unibody construction, and dual-SIM card slots with 4G LTE connectivity.
The phone will be available in the Philippines starting October 21 for PhP 14,990 in three colors: Graphite Black, Prestige Gold, and Aurora Blue. If you’re getting the Nova 2i on its first day of sale, you’ll get a free JBL Flip 3 speaker upon purchase in select Huawei Experience Stores.
