“Huawei Nova 7i is a rebranded Nova 6 SE which comes with a Kirin 810 SoC, Android 10 OS and 48MP quad-camera setup”
Huawei Nova 7i is confirmed to launch on February 14th in Malaysia as the company started sending out media invites for the same. While it’s the first phone in the Nova 7-series, it isn’t a new device as it is a rebranded model of the Huawei Nova 6 SE that was launched alongside the Nova 6 in December 2019. It’s possible the handset might be unveiled in the global markets as Huawei Nova 7i as well. The device might not come with Google Play Services, instead, it’ll have Huawei’s own App Gallery. As it is a rebranded Nova 6 SE, the specifications should remain the same.
