It has been long reported that Huawei will be launching new smartphones under its Nova series in the Indian market. Now it would seem that Huawei has confirmed that 26 July will be the date when Huawei launches both the Nova 3 and Nova 3i smartphones in India.
Invites for the launch have already been sent out to media houses and it shows two devices wherein one has a dual-camera setup at the back and the second has a dual-camera setup in the front. In all likelihood, the devices are going to be exclusively on Amazon. We had already known about the launch of the Nova 3 on 26 July and this invite looks to confirm the launch of 3i as well.
Interestingly, Huawei's sub-brand Honor is also launching a device which is the Honor 9N, just two days before the Huawei Nova 3 and 3i launch.
