Huawei Nova 11 series was launched in China in April this year, along with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 778G SoC. Now, the Huawei Nova 12 lineup is said to be in the works as the purported successor to the Nova 11 series. While details of the Huawei Nova 12 and Huawei Nova 12 Pro are yet to be officially announced, their key specifications have surfaced on Weibo, the Chinese microblogging website. Both models are tipped to feature 120Hz refresh rate displays protected by Huawei’s Kunlun glass. They are said to be powered by the company’s Kirin chips and could feature a 60-megapixel selfie shooter.
Tipster Moorish Sky (translated from Chinese) posted key specifications of Huawei Nova 12 and Huawei Nova 12 Pro on Weibo. As per the leak, both models will feature displays with a 120Hz refresh rate and Huawei’s Kunlun glass for protection from drops. The Pro model is said to run on the Kirin 9000S platform.
