HUAWEI nova 8i delivers incredible camera capabilities through its 64MP quad camera coupled with intelligent features, best suited for those who love creating noteworthy content for social media.

The quad camera setup includes a 64MP Main Camera, an 8MP Ultra-Wide Angle Camera a 2MP Depth Camera and a 2MP Macro Camera, which covers you in various scenarios such as night photography, still photo shooting, macro photos, wide-aperture portraits, wide-angle shots and more.


HUAWEI nova 8i supports Huawei’s advanced fast charging, 66W HUAWEI SuperCharge so it can get a full charge in just 38 minutes. And if you’ve only got 20 minutes during a coffee break? You’ll get 60% battery back in that time too.

Meanwhile, HUAWEI nova 8i provides an enduring battery life. On top of a built-in 4300 mAh (typical value) battery, Huawei’s power-saving AI algorithms optimise battery management, giving you the power that lasts throughout the day.


As users often hold a smartphone horizontally for games and video playback, HUAWEI nova 8i adopted the optimised Full-scene Antenna setup featuring seven antennas around the body. Therefore, HUAWEI nova 8i can sustain a strong network connection even when it is being held horizontally. When the battery is running low, you can leverage the 66W HUAWEI SuperCharge to give it a quick refuel. Thanks to these two features, you can play your favourite games non-stop.

And when it comes to that critical moment to break a tie, the last thing you want to see is the interruption from incoming calls or messages. With the Game Assistant setup, you can indulge yourself fully to the game. In addition, you can quickly tap and open the message in the floating window without exiting the game.
