A new midrange Huawei smartphone was introduced in China earlier today with the Nova 8 SE Life edition. It is a trimmed down version of last year’s Nova 8 SE.
There’s a slightly larger 6.6-inch display with FHD+ resolution upfront though its an LCD instead of an OLED panel. The waterdrop notch has been replaced by a punch hole cutout for the 16MP selfie camera.
The rear cameras are also downgraded with a 48MP main shooter alongside two 2MP modules for macro shots and depth data. There’s a Kirin 710A chipset under the hood paired with 8GB RAM and 128GB storage. The battery is 4,000mAh and supports 40W fast wired charging.

Huawei Nova 8 SE Life comes in Magic Night Black and Frost Silver colors with a retail of CNY 1,899 ($292). The device is available from Huawei’s online store and partner retailers.
