The Huawei Nova 5i has just been made official and it comes with some appealing and other less interesting features.

Unlike the new Nova 5 and Nova 5 Pro, the Huawei Nova 5i is still powered by the undying Kirin 710 processor from last year. On the upside, it has a big 4,000mAh battery with 18W fast-charging support.


The biggest upgrade here is in the camera department. It now has a quad-camera setup on the back, which consists of a 24-megapixel primary camera, an 8-megapixel sensor with an ultra-wide lens, 2-megapixel macro lens, and another 2-megapixel depth-sensor.

Unlike its bigger brothers, the Nova 5i has a punch-hole display for the 24-megapixel front-facing camera to peek through. The screen itself is a 6.4-inch FHD+ IPS panel.
