The HUAWEI Nova 8 series will be coming in December while the long awaited Mate 40 Series is finally launching this October?


Aside from the HUAWEI’s flagship P series, the Nova series is one of the tech giant’s popular mid-range smartphones. A few weeks ago, HUAWEI was rumored to be installing OLED panels with 120Hz refresh rate in their future midrange smartphones. Today, we got a leak on the new HUAWEI Nova 8 series which will be coming in real soon.

According to Rudhra Nandu, the HUAWEI Nova 8 Pro will come with a 120Hz refresh rate panel with a Dimensity 1000+ chipset that supports a 5G network whereas the little brother Nova 8 will be having a 90Hz display and equipped with the DImensity 820 chipset. Both of these phones are expected to be announced in December this year.

Besides the Nova series, HUAWEI’s Mate 40 is finally launching in mid-October globally. According to the leakster, the HUAWEI Mate 40 series will come in with four variants, the HUAWEI Mate 40, Mate Pro, Mate 40 Pro+, and the Mate 40 RS Porche. As for the design, the HUAWEI Mate 40 series will still stick to the dual front punch-hole display but with physical volume buttons on the side this time.

Although there’s now a physical button on the sides, the virtual buttons are still available for users to choose based on their own preferences. As for the cameras, the Huawei Mate 40 Pro+ “Super Cup” will sport a new Leica quad-camera setup with a 50MP main camera, an upgraded 5x optical zoom, and up to 55x digital zoom periscope lens, and a new movie cine lens as well.


With that said, there’s still no official confirmation on the tech specs and the pricing for smartphones yet, so do take this with a grain of salt. But which series are you more excited for? Let us know at our Facebook page and stay tuned for more tech news updates on!
