The future of Huawei’s smartphone business is currently bleak, however, the Chinese manufacturer is still working on some devices. In addition to updating the Mate series, Huawei will also launch a new nova series before the year ends. Today, popular Weibo leakster, @RODENT950 exposed a real image of the Huawei nova 8 series. Although part of the picture is blurred, it can be clearly seen that the Huawei nova 8 series adopts the same dual punch-hole hyperboloid screen solution as the Huawei nova 7 Pro.
However, the Huawei nova 8 series comes with a better display than its predecessor. According to reports, the nova 8 series will use a 120Hz refresh rate screen. Well, at least one of the smartphones in this series will use this display. It is the first 120Hz mobile phone in the Huawei nova series. The Huawei nova 7 Pro comes with a 60Hz screen.
Not only that, this time Huawei’s nova 8 series is also more than one model. This series will have the Huawei nova 8 and nova 8 Pro. The codenames of these smartphones are Jessica and JessicaH while their model numbers are JSC-TN00 and HJC-TN00.
In terms of core configuration, Huawei’s nova 8 series may come with the Kirin 990 5G chip. If not the Kirin 990, it may use a chip in the Kirin 990 series. There are also reports that the Huawei nova 8 Pro will use a Dimensity 1000+ chipset. This report also claims that the nova 8 will use a Kirin 820 SoC. These days, it’s difficult to predict Huawei’s smartphone schedule.
In addition, Huawei will also launch the Huawei nova 7 SE, a member of the Huawei nova 7 series, in the near future.
