The leaks about the new Huawei Nova 8 SE smartphone that appeared a week ago revealed its characteristics and even its design. Now, with the leaks of the well-known insider Digital Chat Station, live images of the smartphone have appeared on the Web, revealing one small but very important detail that could not be noticed from the previously leaked renders.
Huawei Nova 8 SE live photos reveal flat edges just like the iPhone 12
The device has not only have a camera block that looks like the iPhone 12, but have also flat edges, which have been known for a long time. From the first reviews of the new iPhones, it became clear that, despite their visual appeal, they are not better than the rounded edges.
Thus, Huawei Nova 8 SE may become one of the first followers of the controversial trend set by Apple on flat edges; and we will soon see even more such devices. At the same time, an official poster appeared on the Web, also confirming the flat edges and some key characteristics; such as 66-W fast charging, which became known earlier.
Huawei Nova 8 series will arrive with two chipsets and 66W charging
Recently, a Weibo blogger revealed that the smartphones of the Nova 8 series are scheduled to be released in November. The source claims the Huawei Nova 8 line will have a few models. They include the Huawei Nova 8 and the Huawei Nova 8 Pro. These handsets have the code-name “Jessica” and “JessicaH”. They are going to be the first high 120Hz refresh rate display smartphones in Huawei’s Nova series. The dual-hole hyperboloid screen solution of the previous generation of Huawei’s Nova7 Pro will continue. The front dual-camera notch is in the upper left corner of the screen; which is consistent with the position of the Huawei P40 series.
In other aspects, according to the previously exposed news, the new Huawei Nova 8 series will continue the OLED hole-punch full-screen design. The screen refresh rate of at least the latter two models will increase from the previous 60Hz to 120Hz.
Of course, in addition to the screen, more users are concerned about the configuration of the Nova 8; especially the choice of chips. In this regard, according to past practice, the machine may come with the Kirin 9000 series processors. But due to well-known reasons, this year’s Kirin 9000 chips are likely to be insufficient for the Mate 40 series. So we expect that it will be difficult to stock other models. Therefore, some media believe that the Nova 8 series will have to use the previous-generation flagship chip Kirin 990.
The suspected brand-new Nova 8 series new machine has now been approved by the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology. If no surprises, the machine will meet with you in November.
