Huawei nova 12 and 12 Pro specs leak, both running on HiSilicon Kirin chipsets

Ro, 26 September 2023

A Weibo post leaked an official poster for Huawei's upcoming nova 12 duo, revealing quite a bit about the nova 12 and nova 12 Pro. The latter is particularly interesting as it runs on a Kirin 9000S chipset, which also powers up the Mate 60 family.

The nova 12 Pro also boasts a curved 120Hz OLED panel with second-generation Kunlun protection. A 4,900 mAh battery will keep the lights on with support for 100W charging.

The back brings a 50MP main camera, a 12MP ultrawide camera with autofocus and macro mode, and a 50MP telephoto shooter. The list of features includes a 10-step variable aperture adjustment, but we are unsure whether this is just a software implementation or an actual variable aperture lens. The two lenses pictured on the front of the device are supposedly two 60MP ultrawide selfie snappers.

The vanilla nova 12, on the other hand, settles for a Kirin 830 SoC, skips one of the 60MP cameras on the front, adopts the same 120Hz curved OLED screen and replaces the 50MP telephoto on the back with a more modest 8MP unit. Battery capacity is listed as 4,800 mAh with support for 88W charging.

According to the tipster, the nova 12 series will start from CNY 2,999 ($410), but there's no word on availability.
