Huawei launch smartphones outside of China, it has been a while. The fact is that it is already difficult for Huawei to launch smartphones without Google services overseas because devices without Google services are not very attractive to overseas users and global customers.
Due to the multiple rounds of sanctions imposed by the US government, the company will launch fewer and fewer devices, and even sold its Honor brand. Even so, the company brought its most recent mid-range smartphone to Europe.
Today, Huawei nova 8i is listed in Germany. German consumers can buy it at Huawei’s official online store in Germany and Amazon in Germany. The 6GB+128GB storage version is priced at 403.21 USD.
