The same source revealed the chipset and price of one of the models, the Nova 8 SE. He has now disclosed the chipsets and price tags of the other two models in the series which will launch as the Nova 8 and Nova 8 Pro.

The post reveals that the chipset is currently exclusive to Redmi but the exclusivity period ends in December. Other details of the Nova 8 mentioned include a 90Hz OLED display that will be supplied by Visionox or Tianma and a starting price of ¥3299 (~$484).
For the Nova 8 Pro, the phone is said to be powered by the Dimensity 1000+. It will also have an OLED display but with a 120Hz refresh rate. The supplier for the display will be either Visionox or Tianma. With respect to price, the Nova 8 Pro will have a starting price of ¥3999 (~$587).
It is no surprise that Huawei’s upcoming Nova 8 phones are powered by MediaTek processors, unlike their predecessors that are powered by Kirin chipsets. The US ban has stifled Huawei’s HiSilicon chip business.
