13 Aug 18

THIS GIVEAWAY HAS NOW CLOSED.

Thanks to the awesome team at HUAWEI, we have a shiny new Iris Purple nova 3i smartphone worth $499 up for grabs.

All you need to do to get in the draw is sign up to our newsletter at futurefive.co.nz, then head to our Facebook page and tell us why you should win! 

We will randomly select a winner on September 3. One entry per person. Competition open to NZ residents only.

So what is the Huawei nova 3i?

Here are some features at a glance: 

  • 6.3-inch FullView display
  • Four cameras (two rear-facing and two front-facing) with Artificial Intelligence (AI)
  • Te reo Māori as an operating language
  • Kirin 710 next-gen AI processor
  • A vibrant Iris Purple colour so you’ll stand out from the crowd (and maybe never lose your phone again)! The phone is also available in black.

Four cameras with AI? What’s that all about?

The dual front cameras produce the most natural selfies, whereas the dual-camera system at the back produces vivid photos with clear subjects, allowing users to share stunning social media ready photos with friends and followers anytime anywhere.

The Huawei nova 3i has dual cameras of 24MP+2MP. The hardware is further amplified with AI, opening up photo opps you never thought possible. The dual cameras can adjust beautification levels and brightness for portraits and backgrounds.

Huawei has even taken AI into the nova 3i itself. The Android Oreo-based EMUI 8.2 interface supports AI and AI apps, such as:

  • AI shopping assistant: A two-finger long press on a photo will identify products and the links to purchase for those products will then be retrieved by the AI search function.
  • AI Translation: The nova 3i is configured with a built-in voice translator that supports translation between nine different languages. The device can also scan images, such as maps and posters, to translate to seven languages including Chinese, English, Japanese, Korean, Spanish, French and Russian.
  • AI-powered Smart Gallery: The gallery can automatically identify eight different photo themes, including birthdays, parties, graduations, nights out, sporting events, weddings, travels and more. The gallery automatically classifies your photos into these themes.
  • AI-enhance communications: When in a noisy environment, the HUAWEI nova 3i will turn on its AI noise removal mode, which includes whispered and high-volume modes. When the whispered mode is on, the speaker’s voice can be heard clearly without needing to increase the volume. Through rounds of testing on three high-speed railways in China, Germany and Japan, the nova 3i has enhanced capabilities to make and receive calls without issue. Even in an elevator, calls will remain smooth and crystal clear.

The Huawei nova 3i will land in selected stores from August 16, so if you’re not the lucky winner you can still check them out on the shelves. Visit www.consumer.huawei.com/nz for more details.
