In December last year, Huawei held a new product launch conference and launched the Huawei Nova 8 series. The latter includes the Nova 8 and the Nova 8 Pro, with prices starting at 3299 yuan ($508) and 3999 yuan ($616), respectively. Both are 5G-enabled handsets aiming at young customers. However, recently, we noticed an interesting trend – Huawei is launching 4G versions of its existing models. Probably, the main purpose of this is to offer ‘new’ products regularly and not to lose customers. As for the mentioned models, the Pro 4G variant appeared on the official website today. The Huawei Nova 8 Pro 4G offers four colors of Black, Blue, Green, and White.
The Same Kirin 985 But With No 5G Support
As we can learn from the Huawei Nova 8 Pro 4G version’s page, it still comes with the Kirin 985 chip. But this variant doesn’t support 5G network. The chip is built on a 7nm process and adopts a 1+3+4 CPU architecture, with 1xA76 2.58GHz large core, 3xA76 2.4GHz mid-size cores, and 4xA55 1.84Hz small cores. It integrates an octa-core Mali-G77 GPU.
Huawei Nova 8 Pro Key Features
The rest of the features remain unchanged. Thus, the Huawei Nova 8 Pro uses a 6.72-inch double-hole screen. The screen frame curvature reaches 80 degrees and it supports 120Hz refresh rate and 300Hz touch adoption rate.
In terms of photography, the machine comes with a front dual lenses that are ideal for Vlogging. They are a 32MP ultra-wide-angle video lens as well as a 16MP lens.
The rear camera has a 64MP main camera + 8MP super wide-angle + 2MP + 2MP lenses combination. This module supports handheld super night scene, front and rear dual scene video 2.0.
It is worth mentioning that, in order to ensure the gaming experience, the Huawei Nova 8 Pro adopts a large-area VC liquid cooling + 3D graphene heat dissipation film + high thermal conductivity metal triple-mix liquid cooling system. This system can quickly sense the heating area and cool it down.
Our protagonist also has a built-in 4000mAh battery, which uses Huawei’s self-developed battery cell and fast charging technology. Thanks to the 66W super-fast charge, the phone can charge to 60% in only 15 minutes and to 100% in 35 minutes.
At present, the Nova 8 Pro 4G is only on shelves, and the price and time of sale are currently unknown.
