Chinese tech giant Huawei is working on a new generation of smartphones in the popular Nova line. We first learned about this a couple of weeks ago, when a rumor appeared on the Web about the manufacturer’s intention to install OLED panels with a refresh rate of 120 Hz in its future mid-range smartphones.
Leak finder @rudhranandu shared new information about the upcoming Huawei Nova line. According to him, the Huawei Nova 8 Pro will receive the same 120-Hz panel, a 5G Dimensity 1000+ chipset and a price tag of 3999 yuan ($585), and the younger Huawei Nova 8 will be equipped with a more modest 90-Hz screen and a Dimensity 820 chip. Naturally, the price tag will be lower – 3299 yuan ($485). The presentation may take place in December this year.
