Huawei Nova 3i Details

Introduction and Camera
The Huawei Nova 3i is the younger brother of the Nova 3. The device can also be considered as a cut-down variant of the Huawei Nova 3. One of the interesting features of the smartphone is that it comes with dual front and rear shooters. At the back, the Huawei Nova 3i hosts a fingerprint sensor and on the front, there is a notch which houses the dual frontal imaging unit along with the notification light, earpiece and the proximity sensor. 
The Huawei Nova 3i is ideal for those who love shooting images and recording videos. There are dual 16+2-megapixel primary sensors which can be used for imaging even in dark conditions, thanks to the LED flash. Also, to assist selfies and video calls, the smartphone is equipped with dual 24+2-megapixel front-facing cameras.
Display and Battery
The Huawei Nova 3i flaunts a 6.3-inch Full HD+ display which is big and is paired with wide viewing angles that offer a unique visual experience. Also, the screen on the Nova 3i has Corning's Gorilla Glass protection. 
The Huawei Nova 3i is loaded with a non-removable 3,340mAh battery which can readily last for 24 hours even with heavy usage. Also, the battery on the Nova 3i ships with fast charging support which can refuel the juice in no time. 
Performance and Connectivity
The Huawei Nova 3i is powered by an octa-core proprietary HiSilicon Kirin 710 chipset which is paired with 4GB of RAM to ensure seamless and lag-free performance. Users who frequently work on multiple apps at the same time or indulge in games should not face any issues regarding the performance. 
For connectivity, you get Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.2, GPS, 4G with VoLTE support, dual SIM support and a USB Type-C port. 
Platform and Storage
The Huawei Nova 3i boots the Android 8.1 Oreo with the custom EMUI skin on top. For storing apps and other data, there is 128GB of internal storage space which based on your requirements can further be expanded up to 256GB. However, the Nova 3i does not have a dedicated expansion slot and one has to depend on the Hybrid SIM slot.
