Huawei Nova 8 5G is the latest version of the affordable and reliable Nova 8 mid-range smartphone sold by the Chinese brand, which gets a new processor that brings 5G connectivity to the mix. You still get the same simple and understated design, with a plastic frame and body construction. The rear panel and the front display wrap lightly around the frame to make the bezels seem even shorter. You also do not have to contend with a large notch, thanks to the selfie camera being placed in a tiny punch-hole cutout that sits on the top centre. The fingerprint sensor has been hidden beneath the display, although it is an optical sensor, so the accuracy and speed may vary.
Huawei Nova 8 5G is a nice and affordable mid-range smartphone that gets a vibrant display, a fast processor, usable cameras, and a relatively large fast-charging battery. The only thing missing is wireless charging.
