Huawei is still not done for 2017. Though their flagships were released already, Huawei held a special event today for its latest addition to the Nova series. The Huawei Nova 2s comes with Android Oreo and uses “double-sided glass” as its primary design cue. And, of course, there’s the dual cameras on the back. But what really pins it down is the 6-inch 18:9 screen, 2160×1080 Full HD+.
Nova 2s comes with 16 MP RGB + 20 MP Monochrome camera setup on the back and the front snapper is 20 MP and is coupled by a secondary 2 MP camera and an LED flash. The two cameras at the back have f/1.8 aperture, while the front ones have relatively slower f/2.0 lenses.
Huawei was keen to brag the Nova 2s supports Face Unlock. The phone runs on Kirin 960 chipset and has three memory versions – 4 GB RAM + 64 GB storage, 6 GB RAM + 64 GB storage and 6 GB RAM + 128 GB storage.
The 3,340 mAh battery is definitely more than what most of the more expensive phones offer. It is charged through the USB Type-C and as most higher standing Huawei phones, it comes with Huawei SuperCharge that fills the battery to 50% in 30 minutes.
As with most of Huawei’s phones, no word when or even if the Nova 2s will launch outside of China. Offered in Black, Gray, Red, Blue and Rose Gold, the Huawei Nova 2s costs $407 for the 4GB/64GB version, $453 for the 6GB/64GB option and $528 for the 6GB/128GB variant.
