Huawei Nova 8 and Honor V40 series could both come with a quad rear camera setup similar in design, according to a picture leaked by a known tipster. The provisional camera designs of the two phones kept side-by-side in the picture look very similar.

These leaks come even as a report claims that Huawei will be selling its sub-brand Honor in a CNY 100 billion (roughly Rs. 1,12,100 crores) deal soon.
As per a report by Playfuldroid citing tipster Changan Digital King, Huawei will hold separate events for the Huawei Nova 8 series and Honor V40 series launch.

The Huawei Nova 8 SE has a quad rear camera setup, supports 66W fast charging, and comes with the octa-core Dimensity 720 SoC. A ‘High Edition’ of the phone with 5G support was also launched at the event.
The rear camera design leak, shared on Twitter by a tipster, shows both the Huawei Nova 8 and the Honor V40 sporting a similar design. The While the phone claimed to be Huawei Nova 8 seems to have a rectangular camera module with a quad rear camera seems and an LED flash, the other phone in the picture, speculated to be the Huawei Nova 8 series, has an oval-shaped camera module with a similar-looking quad rear camera setup.
