Huawei has brought the Nova 3 and Nova 3i to India after launching the pair in China in early July. The phones look pretty similar with their notch designs and 6.3-inch FHD+ 19.5:9 displays, but there are big differences between the two.
First of all, the Nova 3 has a Kirin 970 processor and 3340mAh battery, while the Nova 3i has a Kirin 710 chip and 3750mAh battery. The former is much more premium as a result, grabbing a Rs 34999 price tag for its only 6GB of RAM and 128GB of ROM variant. The latter comes in at Rs 20990 for its sole 4GB of RAM and 128GB of ROM version.
The Huawei devices also vary in their photography abilities, although both have been equipped with advanced AI skills to identify environments and help with beautifying. The Nova 3 carries a 16MP + 24MP dual camera setup at the rear and a 24MP + 2MP one at the front.
Huawei Nova 3i Photography Features
The Nova 3i grabs a 16MP + 2MP setup at the back and a 24MP + 2MP one for selfies. The number of lenses means that both devices offer 4 cameras in all, making it an ideal device for someone who loves playing around with bokehs. The brand has even thrown in an Animoji clone called Qmojis to let users animate emojis.
