Alleged Huawei Nova 8 Series’ specs leaked online ahead of December 23 launch


Earlier today, Huawei confirmed that it will unveil the Nova 8 in China on December 23. While the official poster only has a silhouette of one smartphone, it is expected to reveal Nova 8, Nova 8 Pro. And now, the specs of both of the two devices have been leaked.

Tipster Digital Chat Station(via Mydrivers) has shared the supposed specifications of the Huawei Nova 8 and 8 Pro. To get things out of the way, he says that the images are for reference only. Anyway, the leak says that both the devices will retain the same Kirin 985 SoC from predecessor.

For the unaware, Huawei launched the Nova 7 series in April and Honor 30 series back in April. Both the series have the same SoC which is a slightly cut-down version of the Kirin 990 flagship SoC. Now, we aren’t sure how this would be possible considering early reports which say that the company’s Kirin SoC devices have been selling at high prices due to chipset shortage.

This is due to the US ban that effectively stops Huawei from producing its own Kirin SoC. Anyway, if it lands on Nova 8 series, one of the reasons could be the result of a survival mode. The company had to stock SoCs for the future before the US ban deadline arrived.

Huawei Nova 8, 8 Pro Specifications(Rumored)

Anyway, the spec sheet says that Huawei Nova 8 will have a 3D hyperboloid Glass design and a thickness of 7.64mm. It will likely feature a 90Hz OLED curved screen with 1 billion colors. For cameras, it will have a quad-camera setup(same on 8 Pro) with a 64MP main sensor. Other sensors include an 8MP ultra-wide, two 2MP macro and depth sensors. Upfront, it will have a 32MP selfie shooter.


The Nova 8 Pro, on the other hand, will have an ultra-curved screen(80° curvature) with a 120Hz refresh rate and 1 billion colors as per the leak. However, compared to non-Pro, this will have a 32MP and a 16MP dual selfie cameras. Apparently, it has features like vlog mode, front& rear dual-scene recording. It is worth noting that official teasers confirm the earlier report on the oval-shaped camera layout for the Nova 8.

That said, both the devices are said to feature the Huawei 66W SuperCharge technology. Further, Nova 8 and 8 Pro will have 8GB RAM and 128/256GB storage options. Regarding the price, rumors say that Nova 8 will start at 3,000 yuan($458), while the Nova 8 Pro will begin at 4,000 yuan($611). Let’s wait and see if these specs turn out to be true.
