Huawei launches the Nova 3 and Nova 3i in Pakistan – 24MP AI Selfie Camera with 128GB storage!

Huawei launches the Nova 3 and Nova 3i in Pakistan – 24MP AI Selfie Camera with 128GB storage!

Huawei, a few years ago was considered an underdog in the smartphone world, but now has risen to become the World’s No. 2 smartphone manufacturer, only behind Samsung by a small margin. Leaving behind most of the competition in its wake, mainly due to its highly successful mid – range devices. Blueking Wang, Manager, Huawei CBG stated a very interesting fact “We are world’s no. 2 even though we are not in the American market, imagine what we could achieve if we were!” Huawei has strengthened its roots in Pakistan today with the launch of the Nova series smartphones, the nova 3 and the nova 3i. The phones are considered to be mid – range devices but, with flagship level specifications. Does that make them the new flagship killers? There is a high possibility that they just might be! Huawei held a special media roundtable just before the launch which consisted of their management team, Blueking Wang, Manager, Huawei CBG, Crown Huan Guang, Campaign Manager, Huawei CBG and Khan Muhammad Osama Shaukat, Manager – Public Relations, Huawei CBG. There they showcased both their devices, we were lucky enough to get sneak peek at the devices before Huawei officially lifted the curtains on its shiny new devices. Talking a bit of the devices, both of them house a 6.34’ LCD Display (1080 x 2340), with a fingerprint reader at the back (just the right place in my opinion) and due to its dual camera setup at the front also has Face Unlock (which by the way works quite well in the 2 days I have tested it). The Nova 3 is the higher end model between the two, housing an impressive Hisilicon Kirin 970 Octa Core processor (same processor housed in the almost $1000 P20 Pro) wrapped in an aluminum body, a whopping 128GB internal storage with microSD card support 4GB RAM with a 6GB variant coming in the near future. 3,750 mAh battery with USB Type C and Fast charging.  It also houses a headphone jack! (Yes they still exist…Thank God!) Blueking Wang, Manager, Huawei CBG also stated, “We have done our research for Pakistan and bringing to the people what they want. They wanted more space, we have done just that by launching not the 64GB but the 128GB variant in Pakistan” The highlight of this device though are the 4 AI powered cameras it houses (dual setups in the front and back). The Dual cameras at the back consist of a 24MP and 16MP setup, which comes with PDAF (Phase Detection Auto Focus) with f/1.8 aperture, they can also record 2K videos at 30FPS, with EIS so that you won’t have any...
