The Chinese market has always been Huawei’s focus, but the increasing popularity of local 5G networks has become an obstacle to their sales. As Huawei is still subject to US sanctions, TSMC can no longer OEM Kirin processors, nor can it purchase other 5G-enabled processors. Earlier, there were rumors that the Huawei P50 flagship needs to be forced to use the 4G version of the Snapdragon 888 processor.
The website playfuldroid recently reported that Huawei intends to launch a new mid-range nova 8i mobile phone in Southeast Asian markets where 4G is still the mainstream, including the Philippines and Malaysia. The four-lens camera on the back of the camera is designed in a style similar to that of the Mate30, with a 6.67-inch LCD screen, and the selfie lens is located in the upper left corner of the screen. In terms of specifications, it is said that the Snapdragon 662 processor is used, and the EMUI 11 based on Android 11 is pre-loaded at the factory, and the Hongmeng 2.0 system will be upgraded later. The phone has a built-in 4,300mAh battery and supports Huawei 66W SuperCharge fast charging.
The four cameras on the back of the camera are 64MP main lens, 8MP super wide-angle, 2MP macro and 2MP depth of field. When Huawei launched the nova 8 series in December last year, it was advertised as a mid-range 5G mobile phone. However, it was reported earlier that nova 8 and nova 8 Pro have been out of stock in China due to lack of chips. Now nova 8i only supports 4G, which reflects Huawei can no longer rely solely on the Chinese market for long-term maintenance.
