To store media files and apps, the Huawei Nova 2i comes with an onboard storage space of 64GB which is fixed and cannot be expanded any further as the device lacks an expansion slot.
To enable smooth and flawless performance while gaming or multitasking, the handset is powered by an octa-core Kirin 659 chipset which is clocked at 2.36GHz. The SoC is coupled with 4GB of RAM
to aid seamless performance. The handset comes with some gesture-based shortcuts to save time and for the ease of use. These include 'draw an S' for a long screenshot to capture an entire webpage; 'tap twice with one finger' for a screenshot, and 'tap twice with two fingers' for screen recording.
