Huawei isn’t giving up on the European market, and two more of its nova series phones are expected to arrive in Europe soon. These should be the nova 8i and nova 9, according to WinFuture, albeit like with all recent Huawei phones, none will come with GMS support.
The nova 8i with 6GB RAM and 128GB storage is expected to cost €350, while the nova 9 with 8GB RAM and 128GB storage is expected to cost €550. There’s no news on when the pair will be available for purchase.
Both novas will come pre-installed with HarmonyOS 2 and will only support 4G connectivity. The two batteries have 4,300 mAh cells and 66W rapid wired charging, but that’s about it for commonalities. The Snapdragon 662 is used in the nova 8i, whereas the Snapdragon 778G in the nova 9 is a bespoke 4G-only variant of the newer Snapdragon 778G.
The nova 9 has a 6.57-inch OLED display with a refresh rate of 120Hz and a 50-megapixel primary camera with an RYYB pattern. The nova 8i has a 6.67-inch LCD with a pill-shaped notch for its 16-megapixel front camera and a Mate 30-inspired rear design with a 64-megapixel primary camera.
