This year, HUAWEI unleashes yet again another “awemazing” nova series that will surely make you say, “TAKE MY MONEY NOW!!!”
Introducing the Huawei nova 7i – the 1st 7 series model that was launched early this year and it boasts of significant improvements in terms of design, chipset, hardware, camera and OS yet stays super affordable under P15,000 making it a top choice in the mid-range market.
Here are the nova 7i’s notable features:
1. Powerful 48MP Quad AI Cameras w/ Handheld Super Night Mode
Over the years, HUAWEI has established itself as the smartphone with the BEST CAMERA system. Hands down. I always feel proud whenever I hear people say things like, “Basta HUAWEI, the best ang camera nyan!” or “Sana nagagawa din ng iPhone ko yang ganyang shot.” Well, well ganun talaga. hehehe
Truth to be told, HUAWEI’s camera excels not only on their flagship models (P and Mate series) but even in their entry-level and mid-range line. This is because HUAWEI believes everybody, yes everyone from all walks of life deserves a good camera phone since this has become a necessity now. It is part of HUAWEI’s DNA to provide meaningful technology to the world that’s why they continuously do R&D (with their 14 R&D centers globally) to be leaps ahead from competitors.
And so for the nova 7i, HUAWEI included 4 AI cameras with handheld Super Night Mode. The 48MP quad AI cameras enable users to capture wider, clearer and closer shots in most scenarios, while the front camera supports Super Night Selfie 2.0 which can capture stunning selfies even in low light environment. All of them support Huawei’s AI camera feature for you to capture frame-worthy shots effortlessly.
The 48MP Main Camera guarantees highly detailed photos with outstanding sharpness even on low light conditions. The second camera is an 8MP Ultra Wide Angle Camera featuring a field of view of 120°, which is 1.4 times wider than the traditional 78° wide-angle lens. This Ultra Wide Angle Camera is ideal for landscape and architecture photography, as well as group photos. Expect distortion that’s at a minimum with AI too. There’s also a 2MP MACRO lens to help you capture stunning up-close subjects!
The HUAWEI nova 7i is also optimized for low-light photography. The secret to this is their AI that works in the background to brighten dark regions and apply beautification effects to enhance the subjects’ skin tones and facial features. Combined with noise reduction algorithms and digital stabilization, this feature lets you capture breath-taking starry nights even without the help of a tripod or gimbal. Simply take a snap then hold it for 4-6 seconds and witness magic happen right before your eyes!
As far as I know, HUAWEI was the 1st smartphone brand to have a BOKEH camera feature (started during the P9 series). Due to its popularity, HUAWEI has made this a regular mainstay in all their smartphone devices. With this BOKEH Camera feature, you’ll get to finally take your portraits to the next level. Capable of measuring depth, it feeds the ISP in Kirin 810 with data for simulating realistic bokeh effects. The bokeh softly and accurately envelopes the subject, producing a natural blurring effect that is a staple of any good portrait. As the pioneer of this feature in mobile photography, HUAWEI has, of course, perfected this technology it over the years.
2. Best midrange smartphone with Kirin 810, 7nm AI Flagship Chipset
This is what I love about the nova series… HUAWEI powers it with their flagship AI chipset while keeping costs under P15k! No doubt they always lead in the local mid-range market.
HUAWEI nova 7i is powered by Kirin 810, a high-end 7nm chipset. Compared to Snapdragon 730, Kirin 810 has 11% better single-core performance and 13% higher multi-core performance. Kirin 810 also supports Kirin Gaming+ Technology, which utilizes hardware AI to improve the device’s gaming performance making the nova 7i the smart choice if you’re looking for a gaming phone.
HUAWEI’s Kirin chipsets are known for its unmatched overall performance, power efficiency, photography, communications, and AI functions while integrating new algorithms to blaze a new trail in smartphone processing. Aside from the camera, their Kirin chipset is another major reason why HUAWEI leads the android world.
FYI gaming enthusiasts: the Kirin 810 in the nova 7i also supports Kirin Gaming+ Technology, which utilizes hardware AI to improve the device’s gaming performance. Kirin 810 also includes Huawei’s fourth-generation ISP, which offers 100% more powerful image processing capabilities than its processor. Furthermore, on gaming, HUAWEI’s EMUI10 GPU Turbo works by anticipating high loads in games and providing the rightsized amount of CPU and GPU resources to deliver the optimal gaming experience.
Aside from better power efficiency, the better alignment of resource demand and supply greatly reduces frame jitter, resulting in smoother gameplay. Experience sharp and vivid seamless graphics in your favorite gaming apps with the nova 7i. By the way, the GPU Turbo on the HUAWEI nova 7i supports 85 mainstream games.
Also, expect gaming to be CONSISTENTLY FAST as the EMUI10 in the nova 7i optimizes the allocation of system resources intelligently to accelerate the performance from chipset level, delivering more responsive and consistent performance.
3. 8GB RAM + 128GB storage
Of course, to further support your photo, video, daily apps and gaming requirements, HUAWEI included 8GB RAM and a huge 128GB storage. 8GB RAM enables you to run more apps at the same time without affecting the running speed. 128GB of storage lets you create more photographs to cherish. You may also subscribe to the HUAWEI Cloud Services if you need more space.
4. 4200mAh Battery, 40W HUAWEI SuperCharge (70% in 30mins.) *Fastest in the midrange segment*
The battery performance of each HUAWEI device never ceases to impress me.
The HUAWEI nova 7i packs a whopping 4200mAh battery (typical value) to offer longer battery life. With 40W HUAWEI SuperCharge support, it can be charged to 70% in just 30 minutes. Yes, 70% in just half an hour! There’s also no need to worry as the safety of the fast charging technology is certified by TÜV Rheinland, so you can charge with the peace of mind.
5. Most beautiful smartphone in nova Series
As always, the design emphasizes the essential, with no unnecessary gimmicks. Its 3D four-sided curved glass design feels as good as it looks. I love its Punch FullView Display at the upper left side of the screen as it gives me more screen display and no notches to disrupt the view. It also supports a Full HD+ resolution (2310 x 1080) and a wide colour gamut to render details in crisp quality and vibrant colours.
The HUAWEI nova 7i is available in three dreamy colourways: Sakura Pink, a blue- pink gradient finish that evokes warmth and companionship; Crush Green, a nature-inspired shade reminiscent of lush green forests; and the classic Black, which exudes subtle elegance. I’m glad I got the Crush Green but I also like the Sakura Pink as it reminds me of rainbows, candies and unicorns… pure happiness!
6.PUNCH FULL VIEW DISPLAY
The HUAWEI Punch FullView Display is the window to an immersive entertainment experience. Measuring 6.4-inch diagonally, the cutting-edge display has an impressive 90.6% screen-to-body ratio to deliver a near-borderless view.
The HUAWEI nova 7i 6. Enhanced Security with the FINGERPRINT POWER BUTTON
The HUAWEI nova 7i features a side-mounted fingerprint power button that unlocks faster and at a higher success rate. The advantage of the fingerprint button at the side means users can unlock the device quickly and easily, even with one hand.
7. Enjoy Secure App Downloads with the HUAWEI AppGallery
The HUAWEI AppGallery is the official app market on HUAWEI smartphones that comes preloaded since April 2018. The Huawei AppGallery is more than just the default app store on their newest smartphones — it is currently the third-biggest app distribution platform globally, with 180 billion downloads and 390 million monthly active users worldwide (including me!). Every day the AppGallery grows bigger, adding more apps and games to its repertoire for users to enjoy. There’s always something fun, useful, and informative to download from the AppGallery for sure. You gotta try it!
To be honest, I feel more safe using HUAWEI AppGallery. Huawei’s comprehensive four-layer detection security ensures all user data is contained within the device, and every app installation is screened for threats without exemption. The AppGallery features strict security detection such as malicious behavior detection, privacy check, security vulnerability scanning and the manual real-name security check, to ensure the apps featured on the AppGallery platform are safe for all users.
Most top apps are now available at the Huawei AppGallery. Also, I can still access my Gmail as it can be linked to their default HUAWEI EMAIL App and can also be accessed in their default browser. I also installed my daily go-to top apps like Facebook, Instagram, GCash, PayMaya, Netflix, ShopBack, Lazada, FoodPanda, Shopee, Spotify, Snapseed, InShot, Lightroom, Viber, WhatsApp and also Netflix!
As for mobile games, top apps like MobileLegends: BangBang, Wordscapes, CandyCrush, PUBG.MOBILE, Homescapes, Clash of Clans and many more can be easily downloaded at the AppGallery.
