We’ve seen the leak, and now, Huawei has officially taken the wraps off its newest addition to the Nova series, the Huawei Nova 2S. As expected, it’s yet another 18:9 smartphone, and it comes with pretty respectable hardware, including dual-camera systems on the front and back.
Looking at its list of specifications, the Nova 2S is the most well-equipped device in the Nova series. It comes with a HiSilicon Kirin 960 processor – the very same chipset powering the Huawei P10 and honor 8 Pro – paired with up to 6GB of RAM, 64GB or 128GB of internal storage, and a 3,340mAh battery.
Of course, there’s also the Nova 2S’ 6-inch 2160 x 1060 FullView Display with very minimal bezels. Much like the Huawei Mate 10, it also sports a fingerprint sensor on the bottom of the display – it’s quite impressive how Huawei managed to fit the sensor in such a small area.
And then we have the Nova 2S’ four camera configuration. The rear cameras consist of 16MP RGB and 20MP monochrome shooters with f/1.8 apertures, while the primary front-facing camera is a 20MP sensor paired with a 2MP shooter. We reckon the secondary selfie camera is there to enable bokeh effects. Interestingly, the 2S comes with face unlock as well.
In China, the Huawei Nova 2S is available in three variants: 64GB + 4GB for 2,699 Chinese yuan (about RM1,660), 64GB + 6GB for 2,999 yuan (RM1,845), and 128GB + 6GB for 3,499 yuan (RM2,155). At the time of writing, it remains to be seen if the Nova 2S will be launched in Malaysia.
