Both Huawei Nova 3 and Nova 3i have been officially announced back in July, but they went on sale for the first time in India less than two weeks ago. Further, the former device was only available through flash sales and many potential buyers were left with empty hands. Finally, the Nova 3 is going to be available in the first open sale. Starting from August 23, the handset will be officially available on Amazon India with exactly the same price tag as the flash sales: INR 34,999 Yuan, which roughly translates to about $501 at the actual change.
Besides the Huawei Nova 3, its more affordable version Nova 3i (also known as Huawei P Smart Plus in the European market) will be made available in the Iris Purple gradient color variant (it goes from blue to violet) starting from August 21 on Amazon India. The price tag of this version will be INR 20,990, which translates into $300. Until now, the Nova 3i has obtained a very warm response from the public with very high sales in the Indian peninsula, but it was only available in the less original Black color variant.
Just to remind you, Huawei Nova 3 is a high-end handset with the octa-core Kirin 970 chipset under the hood, paired with 6 GB of RAM and 64 or 128 GB of internal storage depending on the chosen configuration. It packs a 6.3-inch display with very narrow bezels and a Full HD+ resolution of 1080 x 2340 pixels, as well as four cameras, two on the back with 16 and 24 MP resolutions (f/1.8 aperture) and two on the front with 24 and 2 MP resolutions (f/2.0). The Nova 3i is its midrange variant and it packs an octa-core Kirin 710 chipset which is the natural successor of the Kirin 659. It offers the same display but a lower-end rear camera with 16 and 2 MP resolutions (f/2.2) as well as a smaller battery (3750 vs 3340 mAh).
