Huawei Nova 8i Overview

Design and Display

Huawei Nova 8i features a 6.67-inch IPS LCD panel with a 60Hz of refresh rate. I think the refresh rate should have been a little higher with AMOLED display for the good competition in the market. Further, it has FHD+ resolution with 2370×1080-pixel capacity.

Further, the back panel of Nova 8i gives us an ultra-wide touch experience since it is made up of 4D glass. For color outlook, it has Black, Blue, and Silver options.
