New Huawei Nova series are out! - Nova 3i and Nova 3


Huawei Philippines is in full blast in releasing the new series of their Nova smartphone models, one year after the Huawei Nova 2i release, they are back to introduce 2 models under the Nova model, presenting the Huawei Nova 3i and Huawei Nova 3 smartphones  both with 4 camera and with 4 AI camera technology.
At first, we thought that we are just expecting one new Nova model, but Huawei Philippines surprised us that they are releasing two kinds of Nova series for 2018 that can cater the mid range and top range smartphone users.

There are rumors in the smartphone user community about the camera performance of the Huawei Nova 3i, there are rumors that it can perform almost the same with the Huawei P20, then few days ago there are some leaks that Huawei Philippines might launch Huawei Nova 3, a much higher specs than the Nova 3i kind.

During its launch in Glorietta Activity Center...all the rumors are true!!!
Now we are so excited to try and test this new phone and we are so sure that this will be another  success following the Nova 2i launch from last year. And we got news that they shipped 100,000,000 Huawei smartphones here in the Philippines, this is a proof that there's  large demand of Huawei smartphones here in our country. Those numbers mentioned was as of July 2018.


At the launch Huawei Philippines presented their celebrity ambassador -- James Reid for the Huawei Nova 3i and Nova 3 -- dubbing its users and fans as #NovaStar

At the launch, Huawei Philippines presented the new features and tech specs of their Huawei Nova 3i, then followed by the exciting introduction of Huawei Nova 3. I was hoping to change my phone to the top range of the Nova series but with that price range around PHP 25,000+ , Its a bit pricey already and my budget is only for the mid range level -- maybe I can score that Huawei Nova 3i since its only priced at PHP 15,990.


Huawei Nova 3i now runs in a much faster octa core processor - the HUAWEI Kirin 710. Its a fast and powerful processor that helps the AI function, image processing and also the energy saving feature for the smartphone.


Huawei's GPU Turbo tech function on the Huawei Nova 3i is to improve the graphic performance, it means that the phone can deliver the best quality without consuming a lot of energy and processor power. Gaming and video playback will be much better using the GPU best performance.


Huawei Nova 3i internal storage is now 128GB, I think this storage size is the common specs for modern smartphone. We need more storage for our data, images and also space for apps and  for gaming.


Huawei is proud to share that the AI tech for camera is now present in their mid range level phones. We got a lot of wow factor from their Huawei P20 because of the AI camera function, this time around, we can have the same AI tech under the Nova series.


One of the feature of the Huawei Nova 3i is the Funny Cosplay photo feature, you can take pics or video via the selfie mode and dress up in any character design using the Funny Cosplay mode.


With the tech of AI scene recognition, taking selfie anytime and anywhere will be much more easy, and provide a better result for imaging. Huawei Nova 3i AI tech on its front and rear camera can choose the best and fit scene and mode for your photo and video.


The HDR Pro on the front camera of the Huawei Nova 3i, you won't be having a problem in taking selfie if the light is at your back or the scene around is too bright or dark. The HDR Pro will do the work to set the front camera at its best, balancing the dark and light for your selfie snaps,
