The Nova family this year seems to be still charged despite Huawei’s still atypical situation due to the US blockade. We say it because after presenting the Huawei Nova 8 and 8 Pro and the Huawei Nova Pro 4G, now the Huawei Nova 4i arrives.
Although this time they have not given it a surname that clarifies the connectivity, it is also a 4G mobile that, in this case, fits into the relatively modest mid-range. However, this does not mean that it renounces features that we see in more ambitious mobiles, such as fast charging at 66 watts.

Curvy display and a design that escapes that of its close relatives
Despite being the last to arrive (at least for now), it seems that this Nova 8i leaves aside the aesthetics that we saw in the first Nova 8 with the rear. While the others adopted what we will see in the Huawei P50 and we have already seen in the Honor 50, in this case, the Huawei Nova 8i seems to inherit the features of the Huawei Mate 30 Pro with that circular module in the centre of the upper part of this surface.
Ahead, we see a very protagonist screen thanks to having remarkably reduced frames, partly achieved by curving the panel. It is an LCD with 6.67 inches and FullHD + resolution. The refresh rate remains at 60 hertz, but they have incorporated the 180 Hz touch refresh rate.
According to the brand, the screen occupies 94.7% of the entire front (with 1.3-millimetre side edges and a more noticeable chin). In the upper right corner, we see an island reminiscent of the one that in the Huawei P40 Pro incorporated two front cameras. Still, in reality, there is only one (as we will see in the next section), leaving the other hole perhaps for a sensor (not at the moment have indicated it).
A chip with 4G and a very fast charge
The processor chosen for this new Huawei is the Snapdragon 662, accompanied by 8 GB and 128 GB of storage. This is, in fact, the only version available at the memory level.
The battery is 4,300 mAh capacity, thus staying below 200 grams. Although what stands out is that ** incorporates fast charging of 66 watts, with which the charging time promises to be only 28 minutes, achieving up to 60% charge in 17 minutes depending on the brand.
In that camera module that we described before, we see that there is not much surprise. The primary camera has a 64-megapixel sensor, accompanied by the usual wide-angle with an 8-megapixel sensor, a 2-megapixel macro sensor, and a 2-megapixel sensor portrait mode. The front integrates, that we know, a 16-megapixel sensor.
Price and availability of the Huawei Nova 8i
As is usual in these more discreet launches, the Huawei Nova 8i is currently only available in one country (Malaysia). The price is about 258.18 euros to change for that only configuration of 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage that we saw, being available in pink, blue or black.
