The alleged Huawei Nova 8 and 8 Pro specs have been posted by Tipster Digital Chat Station (via My drivers). In order to just get things out of the box, he said that the pictures are just for reference. Anyhow the leak claims both phones will keep the very same Kirin 985 SoC like previous phones of this series.

In April, Huawei introduced the Nova 7 range, and in April, the Honor 30 series. The two series have the very same SoC as the Kirin 990 flagship SoC, which is a significantly cut-down edition. Currently, we are not aware if early rumors that the company’s Kirin SoC products are being marketed at premium costs due to chipset shortages will make this likely.

This is related to the US ban that essentially prohibits Huawei from making its very own Kirin SoC. However, one of the explanations can be the consequence of a survival mode if it is related to the Nova 8 series. Before the ban deadline of the US came, the business had to store SoCs for future use.

Huawei Nova 8, Nova 8 Pro expected specifications:

The specification sheet notes, however that Huawei Nova 8 would have a layout of 3D hyperboloid glass and a width of 7.64mm. It will potentially have a rounded 90Hz OLED display with 1 billion colors. It will have a quad-lenses configuration for cameras (same with 8 Pro) with a 64MP key sensor. Other cameras include an ultra-wide 8MP, double macro, and depth sensors with two 2MP. It’ll have a 32MP selfie camera on the front.

But on the other side, the Nova 8 Pro would have an ultra-curved display with a 120Hz refresh rate and 1 billion colors according to the leak (80 ° curvature) which however will include a 32MP and 16MP double selfie lenses relative to non-Pro. It has special modes such as vlog feature, front& rear dual-scene shooting, presumably. According to the official previews verify the previous leaks for the Nova 8 on the oblong camera configuration.

It seems that the Huawei 66W SuperCharge tech is about to be featured in both models. In addition, 8GB RAM and 128/256GB storage choices will be available for the Nova 8 and 8 Pro. As for the price, reports suggest that Nova 8 is going to start at 3,000 yuan($458), while Nova 8 Pro is going to start at 4,000 yuan($611). Let us wait and see if it turns out these specifications are correct.
