“Huawei Nova 5i packs a punch-hole design to accommodate the selfie snapper and vertically-arranged quad rear camera setup at the back”
Huawei Nova 5 series was launched back in June, and the line-up consists of the standard Nova 5, Nova 5 Pro, and Nova 5i. The Nova 5i is available in 6GB and 8GB RAM configurations currently. Now, a new 4GB RAM variant of the Huawei Nova 5i with the same model number GLK-LXU1 has been spotted on the TENAA database, suggesting that the brand might soon introduce it. Apart from the RAM, the rest of the specifications should remain the same. This means it should come with a punch-hole design to accommodate the selfie snapper and vertically-arranged quad rear camera setup at the back. We should know the launch date and pricing in the next few weeks if indeed Huawei has plans to launch the Nova 5i 4GB RAM model.
