Huawei officially announced today that Huawei’s nova8 series models will be officially launched on December 23. This is confirming the initial leak from @DigitalChatStation. In addition to the nova 8 series, Huawei ay also release Huawei Enjoy 20SE and Huawei Watch Fit at the event. According to previous reports, the starting price of Huawei nova 8 is about 3,000 yuan ($458) while that of Huawei nova 8 Pro is about 4,000 yuan ($611). Furthermore, there are reports that the first official sales of these devices will take place on December 30th.
Several reports claim that Huawei’s nova 8 series models will still use an HiSilicon Kirin chip. However, there is no information on the specific chip that this series will use. Nevertheless, considering the current status of the Mate 40 series, it will most likely not use the Kirin 9000.
Previously @DigitalChatStation also revealed that Huawei will launch the Dimensity 700 chip. The new phone will use a 6.5-inch FHD+ resolution 60Hz refresh rate LCD single punch-hole LCD screen. The punch-hole will be in the upper left corner of the display. On the front, the device will have a 16MP camera. On the rear, it will use a 48MP main sensor as well as an 8MP+2MP+2MP configuration to complete the quad-rear camera setup. Furthermore, this smartphone will come with a 4000 mAh battery that supports a 40W fast charge. From speculations, this phone will be the standard Huawei nova 8.
The latest report on the processor of this phone claims that it will use a HiSilicon Kirin 985 chip. However, it appears that all the models will not use the same chip. Some models may come with a Dimensity chip.
Huawei nova 8 series camera design
A recent leak shows the rear design of the Honor V40 series and the nova 8 series. According to Huawei’s practice in previous years, both Huawei and Honor will release new phones in December. Looking at the images, it appears that these devices will use a gimbal main camera and multiple auxiliary cameras. The design ideas of the lens and the arrangement method are basically the same, which are all familiar shapes.
In other respects, the new Huawei nova 8 series will also launch two versions of nova 8 and nova 8 Pro. These smartphones will continue to use an OLED punch-hole display. Furthermore, the display will have a 120Hz refresh rate which is the new standard for many Android flagships.
