The quiet launch of the Huawei Nova 2i definitely startled the smartphone market, but even more surprising is the announcement of its official price here in the Philippines.
Retailing for PHP 14,990, the Huawei Nova 2i will likely rise as a definite challenge to any midranger competitor. It comes equipped with a Kirin 659 chipset with an octa-core CPU. Meanwhile, a 4 GB RAM and 64 GB internal storage complements the processor. For the screen, the ratio will measure at 18:9, but no word yet on the exact resolution. We expect a 16-megapixel plus 2-megapixel combo for the back camera, while the front shooter will have lenses of 13 megapixels and 2 megapixels. Lastly, the Nova 2i runs EMUI 5.1, based on Android 7.0 Nougat.
