Huawei Nova 8 and Nova 8 Pro go officialHuawei has just announced the Nova 8 Pro and the Nova 8 Pro in China. Both models are based on a Kirin 985 chipset, support 66W super-fast charging, and run on Android 11-based EMUI 11 with Huawei Mobile Services. Let's begin with the more interesting of the two.

The Huawei Nova 8 Pro has a 6.72-inch OLED display with an FHD+ resolution and a 120Hz refresh rate. The display features a super-curved edge at 80 degrees on the two vertical sides. It supports HDR10 and is TUV Rheinland certified for eye safety. An in-display fingerprint sensor is on board as well. A pill-shaped cutout in the display houses the two selfie cameras - a 32MP ultra-wide unit and a 16MP portrait lens. They support dual-view recording. The rear camera module has a star-ring design and houses a 64MP main shooter with an f/1.8 aperture, an 8MP ultra-wide angle unit with an f/2.4 aperture, a 2MP macro lens, and a 2MP depth-sensing lens. The model arrives in the so-called No.8 color option, which includes a special dual plating process combining A Gwith anti-glare glass creating the illusion of celestial constellations. The Kirin 987 chipset on the Nova 8 Pro is aided by a VC liquid cooling system.

The Huawei Nova 8 Pro is equipped with a 6.57-inch OLED display with a 90Hz refresh rate, 240Hz touch sampling rate, and an FHD+ resolution. There's only one front camera with a 32MP residing in a centrally placed punch hole in the top of the display. All the rest seems to be identical to the Nova 8 Pro. The two models will go on sale on Deember 30 in China and their prices are as follows:
