SYDNEY AUSTRALIA - Huawei Consumer Business Group today unveiled the HUAWEI nova 2i, a new smartphone that delivers a stunning combination of performance and power, and features a Huawei first: front and back dual-lens cameras. The HUAWEI nova 2i is designed to keep up with every selfie, every image and every social network that matters to today’s dynamic consumers with a new immersive Huawei FullView Display. The HUAWEI nova 2i will be available in JB Hifi, Harvey Norman and participating retailers from October 25th, 2017 (SRP $499) and in Vodafone from November.

“We know what is essential to today’s consumers, and we created a new device that packs powerful features to keep up,” says Eric Zhai, Managing Director of Huawei Consumer Business Group Australia. “Designed to help you engage with everyone, wherever they are in the world, the HUAWEI nova 2i sets a new standard in innovation with its incredible performance, stylish design and advanced camera features.”

First ever Huawei FullView Display

The HUAWEI nova 2i is the first device to feature the brand new Huawei FullView Display technology and delivers a high-quality 5.9 inch screen. The impressive 83 percent screen-to-body ratio and 18:9 aspect provides a beautiful widescreen viewing experience for crisp, clear and bright images.

A Huawei First: Front and Back Dual-Lens Cameras

Launched initially with the HUAWEI P9 in April 2016, Huawei’s dual-lens camera redefined smartphone photography, setting a new industry standard. This continues into the HUAWEI nova 2i, featuring front and back dual-lens cameras, delivering exceptional photography experiences, whatever the subject and setting. The front-facing 13 MP / 2 MP selfie camera takes portrait photography to the next level featuring a new Selfie Toning Flash, which will give users studio quality lighting for more artistic and vibrant images. The rear-facing camera combines a 16 MP lens and a 2 MP lens. Both dual-lens cameras feature hardware-level bokeh for crisper, cleaner and more artistic photos and improved performance in low-light situations.

Symmetric Design

The HUAWEI nova 2i’s sleek design begins with the breathtaking FullView screen, and flows seamlessly into the soft, curved edges of a unibody crafted from high-quality industrial materials. Each component – cameras, fingerprint sensor, USB socket, sensors and flash – is meticulously placed, on the front and back, to deliver a design that is as beautiful as it is intuitive to use.

A User Experience Underpinned by Performance

Powered by an 8-core Kirin 659 chipset, 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of ROM, the HUAWEI nova 2i is capable of running several applications simultaneously while streaming content. The UX is deeply integrated with Huawei’s Android-7 based EMUI to provide a smooth, seamless experience by utilising machine learning to optimise performance based on user behaviour. The deep integration between hardware and software means the HUAWEI nova 2i’s 3,340 mAh battery is long lasting. Additionally, its smart fingerprint sensor utilises machine learning to become more accurate and secure with every use.

The HUAWEI nova 2i also features the company’s proprietary Huawei Histen audio system to deliver extraordinary sound experiences for immersive video and gaming experiences.
