Huawei quietly announced one of their latest smartphone offering, the Huawei Nova 2i (also known as the Maimang 6) which has four camera-setup (2 rear + 2 front) while also having a special gesture-based command system.

Specs-wise, the Huawei Nova 2i sports the company’s Kirin 659 chipset, a 4GB RAM and 64 GB internal storage. The screen display ratio will be also at 18:9, just like some of the upcoming Huawei Mate 10 phones, but there’s no word yet on what resolution. It will also run on EMUI 5.1, which is based on Android 7.0 Nougat.

Camera-optic wise, there’s a 16MP (megapixel) plus 2MP combo for the back camera, while the front cam will have 13MP and 2MP, which might appeal selfie fanatics or phone photographers (if performs well).
