Many manufacturers are pushing out affordable and feature-packed smartphones that are giving consumers a good run for their money making the market an exciting place like never before. Taking cues from the trend, Huawei created the whole Nova series of smartphones for youth and have always advanced in technology by listening to their valuable customers. The new Nova 3 series focuses on 3 main aspects – affordability, great camera performance (especially with the front-facing camera), and game performance. For the international market, the Huawei Nova 3 series comes in two versions, namely the Nova 3i and Nova 3. Regarded as the first smartphone in the world to feature the Kirin 710 chipset, Huawei Nova 3i comes with a 6.3-inch Full View full-HD+ IPS LCD display with a 2280x1080 pixel resolution and 19.5:9 aspect ratio. The Nova 3i is powered by a Kirin 710 processor with up to 4GB of RAM and up to 128GB of storage. The Kirin 710 is expected to perform about 2x faster on single threaded applications and 2.26x faster on GPU performance when compared to the Kirin 659. On the right of the device are the volume controls and the lock/ power button. On the left is the tray for two Nano-SIM cards. The phone supports dual 4G VoLTE. On the bottom are a USB Type-C port, a 3.5mm headphone jack, and a speaker. At the back, we have the protruding dual-rear cameras, the LED flash, and the circle fingerprint scanner. Thanks to the seamless positioning of the glass front and back curves, the Nova 3i feels nice in the hands coupled with its premium look. Even though the Nova 3i is physically the same size as its predecessor (Nova 2i), it managed to contain a larger 6.3inch display (as compared to 5.5inch). By pushing the limits of a higher screen to body ratio with better design and manufacturing process, Huawei managed to reduce the bezels width on both the top and bottom of the phone. The Huawei Nova 3i also features a unique shiny design that is only available on their top-of-the-line P20 series. Huawei is famous for its Artificial Intelligence in camera that helps the phone to automatically recognize locations and enhance the quality of the images. The Huawei Nova 3i’s AI system is currently based on more than 100 million images that can recognize over 500 scenarios in 22 categories. Huawei smartphones are known for their pretty portrait shots due to the capabilities of the software-enabled bokeh effect. Known for their amazing portrait shots, the Huawei has packed the Nova 3i with software-enabled bokeh effect. The Nova 3i is the first ever smartphone to have AI capabilities enabled on the front camera system. Similar to the rear camera, the front camera system also comes with a 2MP and 24MP rear camera. The 2MP mainly captures information about the depth of field, while the 24MP camera captures image data. The Huawei Nova 3i comes with GPU Turbo feature to enhance the overall gaming experience on the smartphone. This is done by optimizing both hardware and software on the phone to better adapt to the demanding needs of games. With GPU Turbo, the Nova 3i is said to perform 60% better in terms of processing efficiency. To enhance the experience for gamers, Huawei developed the Game Suite app that simplifies management of all the games installed on the phone. Available in purple and black colors, the Huawei Nova 3i ships with a 16+2MP dual camera setup on the rear and is further backed by a 3,340mAh battery. All in all, Huawei has scored yet another success story with the arrival of the stunning Nova 3i.
