A tipster known for Huawei leaks has claimed that other Nova 8 series phones will go official in December. He has stated that the Honor V40 will be also announced in the next month.
In a separate leak, one Twitter user revealed that provisional camera design of both series and they look strikingly similar.
As can be seen in the above image, the Honor V40 has a rectangle-shaped camera module that has a main lens at the top, and below are at least three cameras and an LED flash. The Nova 8 camera module has an oval appeal with the main camera at the top followed by other cameras.
The Huawei nova 8 lineup technically is already here with an SE smartphone that is a rebranded Huawei nova 7 SE but with a Mediatek chipset rather than a Kirin by HiSilicon. We expect the family to be expanded with a vanilla version, a Pro variant, and probably even nova 8i if the 7 series is anything to go by. The announcement is likely to take place in Shenzhen where Huawei’s HQ is.
The Honor V40 series was already rumored to arrive in mid-December in Beijing with two different chipsets – some with the Dimensity 1000+ by Mediatek, others with the Kirin 9000. Rumored specs also included a 50MP camera with RYYB sensor, 66W wired and 40W wireless charging.
