Huawei has launched a new smartphone in Malaysia today – the Nova 7i. It is a rebranded version of the Nova 6 SE that made its debut in China last December. The Nova 7i starts at RM 1,099, and a few of its highlight features include 40W Huawei SuperCharge fast charging, a quad-camera setup at the rear with a 48MP primary camera, and a display with a punch-hole. On the downside, the Nova 7i doesn’t feature Google’s service, such as Play Store and other basic apps, due to the US’ Ban on its companies to deal with Huawei.
