Key features and prices of HUAWEI nova 8 and 8 Pro smartphones
In the near future, HUAWEI plans to update the line of nova 8 smartphones, releasing three models at once: basic, advanced with the Pro prefix, and a special modification called nova 8 SE. Without waiting for the presentation of the gadgets, a well-known Chinese insider spoke about the key characteristics of the two older devices in the series, and also revealed their estimated price.
According to network informant with the nickname Really Asen Jun, HUAWEI nova 8 will be based on the mobile platform MediaTek Dimensity 820. The new product is also credited with an OLED display with a refresh rate of 90 Hz from Visionox or Tianma. The modification, called nova 8 Pro, is expected to receive the flagship Dimensity 1000+ processor and a 120 Hz OLED screen. The choice of MediaTek chips, according to an insider, is not accidental - due to US sanctions, HUAWEI is forced to suspend the use of HiSilicon chips.
The base model HUAWEI nova 8 is expected to be priced at $484, while the nova 8 Pro version will cost $587. The nova 8 SE smartphone, built on the Dimensity 800 platform, will be the most affordable gadget in the series and will go on sale for $409. The presentation of new products should take place before the end of 2020.
