Design and Display

The most glaring reminisce of all is in the design. The Huawei Nova 8 comes packed in a chassis that’s reminiscent of its 5G sibling. The only difference here is in the colour options.

Here we just Powder Pink, as opposed to four colour options on its 5G sibling, which includes  Black, Blue, Green.

Scrutinizing the rear panel, we have the same setup, with the prominents being the gradient design and the camera module that houses four cameras and an LED flash. You will also find the Huawei branding, which indicates it’s a Huawei Smartphone.
