Huawei Nova 7 Spotted on Geekbench, Huawei FreeBuds 3i Moniker Confirmed by Indonesia Telecom Certification


The news surrounding Huawei’s upcoming Nova 7 series smartphones has been there for a while. Earlier this week, Huawei put an official stamp on the series by confirming the launch date. Notably, the Huawei Nova 7 lineup of smartphones, which is believed to consist of the Huawei Nova 7, Huawei Nova 7 SE, and Huawei Nova 7 Pro, is going to launch on April 23, 2020 in China. So far, we have received a lot of intel surrounding the specifications and features of the Huawei Nova 7 series models. Today, we were able to spot the vanilla Huawei Nova 7 on the Geekbench database website, which has confirmed and double-checked some of its specifications. Furthermore, the company’s upcoming truly wireless earbuds, the Huawei FreeBuds 3i have also popped up on the internet, as they have received the Indonesian telecom certification. Take a look at what we know about the Huawei Nova 7 series and the Huawei FreeBuds 3i so far.

Huawei Nova 7: Geekbench Scores and Specifications

As seen in the Geekbench database image for the device, the Huawei Nova 7 has managed to score 3,190 in the single-core test and 9,481 in the multi-core test. Under the hood, the Huawei Nova 7 will be powered by the company’s in-house Kirin 985 5G mobile platform, which will be assisted by 8GB of RAM. We can, however, expect more RAM variants for the device. On the software side of things, the Huawei Nova 7 will run the latest Android 10 OS out of the box with Huawei’s EMUI proprietary Android skin baked on top of it.

Other than all this, the Geekbench listing for the Huawei Nova 7 fails to give us any more intel. That being said, we already have a working clue as to what we can expect from the device. Notably, the Huawei Nova 7 series is going to feature a curved display with a punch-hole cutout (dual for the vanilla Huawei Nova 7 and the Huawei Nova 7 Pro and single for the Huawei Nova 7 SE). As far as pricing goes, the Huawei Nova 7 could be priced somewhere around CNY 2,000 to CNY 3,000, the Huawei Nova 7 SE could be priced around CNY 3,000, and the Huawei Nova 7 Pro is tipped to be priced around CNY 3,500 to CNY 4,000.

Meanwhile, the company is also working on launching yet another pair of truly wireless earbuds. Huawei’s FreeBuds 3i have recently been spotted on Indonesia’s telecom certification website, the first instance of these earbuds receiving a certification. The certification has confirmed the moniker of the earbuds. That being said, other than confirming the moniker, it does not tell us anything else about them. We can only expect to hear more about the buds soon.

As of now, this is pretty much all the intel that we have surrounding the Huawei Nova 7 and the Huawei FreeBuds 3i, but we are sure to receive more information about the same in the coming days. Whenever we do, we will keep you posted on the same.
