The HUAWEI nova 8i's sleek style will win you over

Let’s be honest: looks matter. When it comes to owning the latest smartphone, you want something that performs well and keeps up with the heavy demands you set for it, and that looks good in the process. It can’t be all brains and no beauty. Fortunately, the brand-new HUAWEI nova 8i knows that compromise just isn’t an option, and has developed a device that is as aesthetically pleasing as it is technically impressive.

The first thing you’ll notice when you hold your own HUAWEI nova 8i for the first time is its ultra-slim, ultra-light, perfectly proportioned body. It fits in the palm of your hand in a way that feels seamless, like it’s always been there. The phone’s 4D curved back cover features precision-engineered rounded edges, which allows for an ultra-smooth touch and a more comfortable grip.


To match the slim body, the right side of the HUAWEI nova 8i also comes with an unobtrusive fingerprint unlock key. This key holds second-generation fingerprint unlock technology, which allows the phone to be unlocked at a quick and easy touch.


Despite its sleek proportions, the HUAWEI nova 8i has been designed to accommodate a larger screen. With a screen-to-body ratio of 94.7%, the screen size is an impressive 6.67 inches and comes complete with HUAWEI Edgeless Display. This pioneering technology offers a wider field of view, which is ideal for viewing photographs, watching movies or playing games.



The phone’s beautiful aesthetic is also incorporated into the back camera, which is arranged in a matrix under an iconic circular ring, giving it a harmonious style that is instantly recognisable.


The hole punch camera in the top left-hand corner of the screen houses both a 16MP front camera as well as an ambient colour temperature sensor for detecting ambient light. If you have Natural Tone enabled, the HUAWEI nova 8i can automatically sense the ambient light level and adjust the screen colour temperature to maintain a consistent colour display in different environments. This means that you always have a comfortable viewing experience that’s easy on the eye.


The HUAWEI nova 8i comes in two striking colours – Moonlight Silver and Starry Black – that ultimately make it a bold fashion statement. Inspired by space, the colours are developed through a complex process that combines multiple layers of colour, dazzling textures, metallic highlights and a protective film.


Of course, all these impressive exterior features are matched by incredible performance functionalities. The device boasts a powerful AI quad camera that takes exceptional photographs every time, a large 4300mAh battery, a powerful octa-core processor and 128GB of storage for your movies and games.


Since the beginning, the HUAWEI nova Series been widely loved by young people who want something sharp and snazzy – and the HUAWEI nova 8i is exactly that. Huawei’s product design and research and development teams have once again combined their passion for technology with their deep insights into their target market to make something both beautiful and powerful.


The HUAWEI nova 8i is available online at the Huawei Store for just R6,999, which includes a free HUAWEI Bluetooth speaker valued at R699. Ts and Cs apply.
