Huawei nova 8 is set to launch later this month to succeed the Huawei nova 7 series and its features have been leaking left and around.
Most of its features follow trends we expect on smartphones launching later this year and in 2021.
Huawei nova 8 will be a mid-range smartphone and ship with a 6.57″ curved screen that features a punch-hole cutout at the center of it to host the selfie camera.
Huawei is also including 90Hz refresh rate on the screen.
Powering the smartphone is Kirin 985 processor coupled with 8GB of RAM and either 128GB or 256GB of onboard storage.
We also have 66W fast charging and an ample 3700mAh battery.
In terms of optics, we have a 32MP selfie camera.
At the back, we have an oval camera bump that houses a 64MP quad setup that also includes an 8MP ultrawide camera, 2MP depth and 2MP macro sensor.
Huawei nova 8 will come in measuring at 160.1 x 74.1 x 76.4mm and weigh at 169 grams – so compact smartphone lovers will enjoy using this device.
Huawei Nova 8 will run on Android 10 and EMUI 11.
Hopefully, nova 8 will be updated to Android 11.
In terms of pricing, we expect it to cost around Ksh 45,000.
Huawei Nova 8 will also come in various colours including black, green, and purple in two tone finishes.
Huawei will hopefully launch the nova 8 come early next year just like when they launched the Huawei nova 5T that launched in January.
