Android version and market relevance

The long-awaited announcement of a new smartphone from the manufacturer Huawei, which took place in December 2020 (in our catalog you can see all smarphones of 2020). This is a new model Huawei nova 8 Pro 5G — dual 5G-smartphone works on Android 10, which does not receive software updates and will forever remain on the old version of Android. If this does not suit you, then be sure to check the selected ones DROID-smartphones in our catalog. These are models that work on the latest version of the Android OS or are updated on it.

And let’s look at an important function — the availability of 5G networks support in a smartphone. The manufacturer implemented functionality for working in 5G networks in this model. This means that you can use high-speed mobile Internet (up to 100 Mb/s) without delay with a stable signal. Agree that this should be very useful and we will all quickly get used to this quality of mobile Internet.

Screen, body and battery

Briefly describe the screen and the body of the smartphone. Huawei nova 8 Pro 5G received OLED-screen measuring 6.57 inches. And this is a phablete, not just a smartphone. And, even if you liked this model, it′s far from the fact that it will be convenient for you to use it. Therefore, we advise you to hold it in your hands before buying. In addition to the screen size, it is also worth talking about the image refresh rate. 120 Hz is 120 updates per second of each pixel on the screen. This frequency is not very noticeable to the eye, but it gives a feeling of smooth operation of the interface. Especially in games where the picture changes quickly and with smooth animations, players get more pleasure from immersion in the game. Smartphones with a refresh rate of 120 Hz can now be bought only in premium segments, where the price starts at $ 800 and above. If it’s expensive for you, you can look at smartphones with a frequency of 90 Hz or even 60 Hz.

And now let’s move on to describing the dimensions of the case. The ratio of screen size to body size of Huawei nova 8 Pro 5G is very high, so the screen takes up almost all the space from edge to edge (but a little bit lacking to the parameters of a frameless smartphone). In addition, there is a small hole at the top of the screen, which houses a selfie camera. Such a cutout significantly increases the usable area of the smartphone screen and even distinguishes the body design from other models. And in such dimensions the engineers managed to put the battery on 3 800 mAh, which is the average value in the market.

Main camera and selfie camera

The smartphone Huawei nova 8 Pro 5G got the main camera with multiple modules (smartphones with four cameras): 64 MP Wide + 8 MP Periscope telephoto + 8 MP UltraWide + 2 MP Macro. And there is also a front camera that has multiple lenses (smartphones with dual selfie cameras): 32 MP Wide + 16 MP UltraWide. If you judge only by the number of megapixels, then the main camera is super-camera, which is installed in smartphones. But the frontcamera very good, which will surprise you with its high quality shooting of selfie. It seems that we have already written many times that before buying you need to see a smartphone and hold it in your hands. And speaking about cameras, I would like to repeat the same idea once again — look at the reviews about this model, see examples of photos taken by this smartphone. It often happens that in search of a low price, you buy a model with a camera of tens of megapixels, but the photos and videos will not be of high quality.

Processor and Internal Memory

A smartphone that always works fast, smoothly and does not overheat is a smartphone-dream! You can see how fast our Huawei nova 8 Pro 5G works in video reviews, and now let′s talk briefly about the characteristics of the processor and memory. This model received 8-core processor on the chipset HiSilicon Kirin 985 5G. The amount of RAM is 8 GB.

The built-in memory on which you will store photos, videos, music and all your data, has a volume of 128 GB.But there are versions with more memory on 256 GB.

Price for Huawei nova 8 Pro 5G: buy or not to buy?

So this is Huawei nova 8 Pro 5G after the official announcement. This novelty hit the top, the most flagship segment of smartphones.

Buy Huawei nova 8 Pro 5G you can after the beginning of official sales, which start in  December 2020. And now the price from the manufacturer is known — it′s $610 without taxes and fees. The price-to-feature ratio of this smartphone is not bad, because there is is just a huge screen, and the camera is sooooo cool, and the frontcamera is also very cool.
