The Huawei nova 7i is here. The device will be available in retail stores beginning today.
As we expected, it costs KES 30000.
We have since discussed its offerings, and we know it is in a dangerous segment that is also served by other competitors.
The discussion is more of a comparison alongside Samsung Galaxy A51, which also costs the same.
In our assessment, we conclude that the nova 7i brings a lot to the table, and the majority of users will be happy with it.
The elephant is in the room has to be mentioned, and that is that the handheld does not ship with Google Services, meaning there is no Play Store or any other Google apps.
That is not the whole story though, because Huawei has a plan for that misstep, which, admittedly, is not a fault it can navigate through owing to its strained relationship with the American administration.
App Gallery is here to sort your app needs. There are a ton of other app stores for Android that users can take advantage of, and we have covered this story in a previous story.
That aside, the nova 7i is more than capable, and besides a big battery that charges ridiculously fast (40W), it has admirable cameras – four on the rear and a selfie one punched into the display.
“Following the sleek design and innovative philosophies of the nova series, the new HUAWEI nova 7i incorporates stunning design, innovative rear quad-camera, large battery and powerful Kirin 810 chipset that enhance the user experience, making yet another trend-setting smartphone for a young generation of consumers who love to play, capture and share.,” says Zhujie Jim.
