Over 20,000 Huawei Nova 3i Sold on First Day


Last July 29th, Huawei Philippines has officially launched and released their newest super midrange smartphone offering in the local market called the Nova 3i. Like its predecessor, the Nova 2i, it is a well-received handset by tech and gadget enthusiasts simply because it offers a beautiful aesthetics, powerful midrange specs, and quad-camera setup, for a very aggressive asking price.

That being said, it is no surprise that the Huawei Nova 3i is doing great at the sales department. Today, through a post on the company's official Facebook page, it is announced that the Nova 3i has managed to sell more than 20,000 units on its first day. In case you wonder how much it is when translated to monetary value giving that each unit only costs Php15,990, that's a whopping Php320,000,000.

There are a couple of reasons, I think, why Huawei was able to score that big sales number in just 24 hours. First is the Nova 3i's predecessor's performance, it is a very good device and the four-camera setup was definitely not just a gimmick. I even own one of these and up until today I am still very impressed at how good it is not just in the camera department but also in the stamina and performance side of it. And I have been using this phone as my main driver for 8 months now. Second is, its looks, like I said above, it is a beautiful phone especially the one in Iris Purple. It has a notch yes, but it can be hidden through the display settings, which that makes the phone more appealing to those who love and hate the notch. Third is, it has high powered specs such as the new Kirin 710, 4GB RAM and the staggering 128GB storage right out of the box. And finally, the pricing. All of those powerful specs and stunning looks packed in a single device called the Nova 3i will only cost customers Php15,990. And it comes with a free wireless Bluetooth speaker worth Php2,990 especially the pre-ordered units.
