The HUAWEI nova series, beloved by young smartphone users for its big battery, big storage, and big display, is back with a reimagined line-up boasting selfie innovations and a slim and stylish lightweight design, designed for the fashion-forward and tech-savvy user. The new stars in the HUAWEI nova 12 series, include the HUAWEI nova 12i, HUAWEI nova 12 SE, and the soon-to-be-released HUAWEI nova 12s. Inspired by the concept of “nova” – a new star – these phones embody the South African KeStar spirit (#nova12iKeStar).

The latest HUAWEI nova 12i retains the lightweight build of the series and boasts upgraded camera capabilities, adding an exceptional 108MP High-Res Camera. The HUAWEI nova 12i draws from the ethos to inspire confidence and self-expression in users in its design with a spinoff of the iconic galaxy-inspired nova design by adding a dazzling Super Star Orbit Ring as a highlight around its central camera module.

Most significantly, the HUAWEI nova 12i’s 108MP High-Res Camera is powered by RAW Domain Algorithm. Using this patented technology, the HUAWEI nova 12i optimises brightness, clarity, and dynamic range, delivering vivid colours and a balanced exposure in both bright and dark areas. The result is a natural, true-to-life image, allowing you to shine as the brightest KeStar. Even in challenging scenarios like backlit HDR or low light, the nine-in-one pixel fusion delivers exceptional brightness without sacrificing detail.

Better yet, night shots will see improved highlight suppression and greater clarity. This is most visibly seen in commonly affected images such as night photography with decorative streetlights and car lights, where light is sometimes disproportionately presented and fails to be captured effectively. Thanks to the HUAWEI nova 12’s powerful 108MP camera, a picture-perfect photograph is just a click away.
