Yesterday marked a significant milestone for Huawei as the tech giant hosted a high-profile launch event in China, unveiling its latest upper mid-range smartphone lineup—the Huawei Nova 12 series.

Post-announcement, all four devices in the series swiftly became available for pre-order. In an astonishing turn of events, within a mere day, demand skyrocketed, leading to the swift sell-out of three flagship models: Nova 12, Nova 12 Pro, and Nova 12 Ultra.

Presently, the only remaining model in stock is the budget-friendly Nova 12 Lite. It seems that enthusiasts are clamoring to experience the cutting-edge technology embedded in these devices.

Distinguishing themselves within the series, the Nova 12 Pro and Nova 12 Ultra stand out with their 5G connectivity capabilities, while the vanilla Nova 12 shares the 4G limitation with its Lite counterpart.

Huawei's dominance in the Chinese smartphone market has been on a steady incline, a trend that gained momentum with the discreet release of the Mate 60 series. The Nova 12 series, hot off the press, is already garnering a response akin to the highly successful Mate 60 lineup.

However, as is customary with Huawei, specific sales figures are shrouded in secrecy. Enthusiasts eagerly await data from research firms to quantify the series' impact, with expectations running high for a swift restocking of the in-demand models.

The crowning glory of the Huawei Nova 12 series lies in its introduction of two innovative HiSilicon chipsets: the Kirin 9000SL and Kirin 8000. The former takes center stage within the 'Ultra' model, while the latter powers both the standard and 'Pro' editions.

Despite the buzz surrounding these chipsets, detailed specifications remain elusive. Early reports hint at the Kirin 9000SL as a refined version of the Kirin 9000S, known for powering the Mate 60 series and Mate X5. In contrast, the Kirin 8000, featured in the Nova 12 Pro, is accompanied by a 5G modem, setting it apart from the vanilla Nova 12.

Adding a twist to the lineup, the Nova 12 Lite adopts a Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G SoC, equipped with a 4G modem, presenting a departure from the HiSilicon dominance observed in its counterparts. The Nova 12 series, with its diverse offerings, promises a rich and varied smartphone experience for consumers.
