A couple of weeks after making the Huawei Mate 40 Pro official, which is already launched in Spain, Huawei leaves us with a new phone. The brand has presented the Huawei Nova 8 SE in its native country. This new phone is a mid-range that already comes with 5G connectivity as standard, thanks to the use of a MediaTek processor, one of the great novelties in this case.
Instead of using the brand’s own Kirin processor, has opted for a MediaTek chip on this Huawei Nova 8 SE. This mid-range is presented as a balanced model, with a rear that is remarkably reminiscent of the new Apple iPhone 12.

A Huawei mobile with MediaTek processor
The Huawei Nova 8 SE is a mid-range model, which is a leap from previous models in the Nova range. Comes with a 6.53-inch OLED panel, with a notch in the shape of a drop of water, with Full HD + resolution and a refresh rate of 60 Hz. The fingerprint sensor is also located below the screen in this case, as is usual with an OLED panel.
The use of a MediaTek processor, actually two in this case, is one of the great novelties in the phone. We find two variants of it, one with MediaTek Dimensity 720 processor and another with a Dimensity 800 processor. Both are processors of the mid-range with 5G from MediaTek, which will give you good performance at all times. The two versions come with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage.
In terms of cameras, the Huawei Nova 8 SE does not present too many surprises, with four rear cameras: 64MP main sensor, 8MP ultra-wide, 2MP macro sensor and a 2MP depth sensor. The cameras are located in a module that is very reminiscent of the iPhone 12 design. For the front, in the notch, they leave us with a 16 Mpx camera.
The phone surprises by being the model with the least battery in this range, with a capacity of 3,800 mAh. Although the brand makes use of fast charging of 66W, thus being the mid-range model with the fastest charging of the Chinese brand. It fully charges in just 35 minutes. Android 10 AOSP with EMUI 10.1 is the operating system on this model.
