Huawei’s newest nova Series elevates the smartphone experience with a bold design, advanced camera capabilities and productivity-boosting features
A superb design and display that showcase your taste and show you great visuals
HUAWEI nova 8 comes in a stunning Blush Gold colourway. It features a thin and light body that weighs only 169 g, so users can feel the delight as they hold it in hand. From the back, the universe-inspired Nebular Camera System sits elegantly on the exquisite glass panel, giving the device a unique and highly recognisable look.
Made for the way people today browse and play, the display on the HUAWEI nova 8 supports 90Hz refresh rate and 240Hz sampling rate to make every touch and scroll responsive. With 10-bit colour depth and up to 392 ppi, the display can render up to 1.07 billion colours. Whether for browsing social feeds, reality shows or live streaming, the display shows smoother gradients and more realistic content in vivid colours.
An exceptional photography wizardry that captures your moment
Inside the Nebular Camera System is a powerful quad-camera consisting of a 64MP HD Main Camera, 8MP Ultra-Wide angle Camera, 2MP Macro Camera and 2MP Bokeh Camera, which lets users capture when exploring.
Using 4-in-1 light fusion technology, the 64MP Main Camera makes it easier for people at all skill levels to take pictures in crystal-clear quality. The night can’t stop people from exploring. The Super Night Mode makes photos sharper, brighter and ready to share.
HUAWEI nova 8 also makes wide-angle photos look more natural with its 120° Ultra Wide Angle Camera and anti-distortion AI algorithm. To help people create artful photos, the Bokeh Camera creates natural bokeh effects for portraits, while the Macro Camera takes up-close shots in clear, minute details, with a focus distance of just 4cm.
Dual-View video is here to help vloggers record HD 1080p videos in a playful way. The display will split in two, with one showing a close-up shot captured by the Ultra-Wide Angle Camera, and the other displaying the whole picture seized by the Main Camera, great for shooting events or locations, such as visiting a park.
The 32MP High-res Front Camera makes everyone look amazing in selfies. Even at night, the Super Night Selfie 2.0 has it taken care of, and the built-in AI algorithm removes flares reflected from glasses for ready-to-share selfies.
Lightning-fast charging that lets you have more fun and achieve more
HUAWEI nova 8 runs fast and smooth no matter for browsing social feeds or playing games. It doesn’t easily get heated either, thanks to the 3D graphene cooling technology. Even when binge-watching, HUAWEI nova 8 has it covered with its superb heat dissipation capacity.
The 66W HUAWEI SuperCharge support saves users the trouble of charging the device frequently, especially during games and movies. It can be charged to 60 percent in just 15 minutes and 100 percent in 35 minutes. In the time it takes to have breakfast or a cup of coffee, users can have the phone fully charged and ready to go.
