Huawei has a new family of smartphones, or distant cousins rather, with the Nova 8 and Y60. The Huawei Nova 9 and Y60 are all made their debut in Sandton, north of Johannesburg this evening, and both devices are priced at a fraction of what you’d expect.
That’s more than impressive especially for the Y60. The Nova Y60 uses a Mediatek MT6765 chipset with an octa-core processor. All that power is able to bring things like Bluetooth 5.1 and 2.4GHz support, for maximum compatibility with carrier’s 4G networks.
While the Nova 8 won’t have 5G, you get features like quad rear cameras; 64 MP Main Camera (f/1.9 aperture), 8 MP Ultra-Wide Angle Camera (f/2.4 aperture), 2 MP Depth Camera (f/2.4 aperture) and 2 MP Macro Camera (f/2.4 aperture). There’s also a fancy 90Hz curved OLED screen technology, 66W super fast charging with a stylish design to match. It is powered by the Huawei Kirin 820E processor.
The aesthetics continue on the back. The Nova 8 has a shimmering colour scheme dubbed Blush Gold.
Both the Huawei Nova 8 and Y60 are available for pre-order and will start shipping from 30 August and 31st August respectively. The Huawei Nova 8 is priced at R10 999 while the Huawei Nova Y60 is set at R3099. Still, its worth mentioning that these devices do not come packed with Google Mobile Services.
