We finally know how one of the Nova 8 series models that are launching in China on December 23 looks.

(Update, December 23: The Huawei Nova 8 and Huawei Nova 8 Pro are official! See their respective prices and specs here.)

Pictures of an actual unit of the Huawei Nova 8 have surfaced on Chinese social media platform Weibo. An image of its back clearly shows that an earlier leak of the camera module’s shape and sensor arrangement proved to be accurate. Yes, it’s oval, and yes, it has four cameras, with the main one having 64 megapixels and an f/1.9 aperture. The rest are as follows: 8-megapixel, f/2.4 ultra-wide; 2-megapixel, f/2.4 macro; and 2-megapixel, f/2.4 depth.

The green variant has a frosted rear panel with a big Nova branding at the bottom. There’s another version that has that kind of design — and it’s the one with the silver-pink shade. Other color variants of the Huawei Nova 8 are purple and black, but they don’t have the Nova logo at the base.

Let’s go to the front. The 6.57-inch curved screen has a single punch hole at the top center, and housed in there is a 32-megapixel, f/2.0 camera. Along the right side of the frame are the volume and power keys.

One photo also shows that the Nova 8’s battery is rated at 3,700mAh and supports 66 watts of fast wired charging and that the smartphone is running Android 10-based EMUI 11.

The biggest mystery that has been solved, at least for us, is its processor. It turns out that the Huawei Nova 8 is still powered by a Kirin chip — a Kirin 985 5G, specifically. The chipset is paired with 8GB of RAM and either 128GB or 256GB of storage.

Rumors say that the non-Pro Nova is priced starting at $460 (around P22,117). That sounds about right, if we are to base it on the Huawei Nova 7 5G‘s P23,990 ($499) launch price in the Philippines. Let’s see if that’s correct come December 23. Just a few more days!
