A design where curves - and cameras - are the protagonists

In both cases the panel resolution is Full HD +, and the most noticeable difference lies in the size, greater in the Nova 8 Pro, going from 6.57 to 6.72 with respect to its smaller brother.

The back of both terminals has a great protagonist: the module that houses the cameras.

This one has a oval format and it is arranged vertically. Inside, the main sensor, 64 megapixels in both cases, occupies a considerable area and, in the case of the Nova 8 Pro, it is one of the largest camera modules we have seen to date on a mobile.
