Huawei is poised to unveil the Nova 12 series in China on December 26, with the spotlight on the Nova 12 Ultra smartphone. Reports have hinted at an under-clocked Kirin 9000s chip, similar to the one in the Mate 60 series, potentially enabling two-way satellite communication.
A recent leak on Weibo has provided insights into the Nova 12 Pro, showcasing its front design and confirming several specifications. The Nova 12 Pro appears to have a pill-shaped cutout for a dual selfie camera setup, akin to the Nova 12 Ultra. Its curved-edge OLED screen boasts a 2776 x 1224 pixel resolution and possibly a 120Hz refresh rate. The model number ADA-AL00 is mentioned in the leak.

Meanwhile, the Nova 12 and Nova 12 Lite (Vitality Edition) are rumored to feature a 4G Snapdragon chip.
