An upgraded variant of the Huawei Nova 3i with bumped up RAM and storage option has been unveiled in China. The newest variant of the Huawei Nova 3i gets 6GB of RAM and 128GB of on-board storage, and pricing has been revealed too.

It must be noted that the Nova 3i was already available in the company’s home market in two variants, one with 4GB of RAM and 128GB of storage and the other with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. Apart from that, the new Huawei Nova 3i variant has the same features as the other two variants. The smartphone was also launched for the Indian market, but only in the 4GB RAM and 128GB in-built storage model.

A Weibo post by the verified Huawei account suggests that the price of the new Huawei Nova 3i variant will be set at CNY 2,399. Additionally, the Huawei Nova 3i also gets a new colour: Acacia Red. Other colour options include Black, Purple, and White.

Larger RAM and storage is definitely good news for users; however, it will be interesting to see whether the Chinese phone maker launches the model for India. The phone was launched in July in India boasting a dual camera setup at both ends.
