Huawei is getting ready to launch yet another Nova smartphone in Malaysia. Dubbed the Nova 2 Lite, the device was actually launched in The Philippines just yesterday, and it should serve as a more affordable alternative to the Nova 2i.
In comparison to the Nova 2i, the Nova 2 Lite comes with a lower resolution 5.99-inch 1440 x 720 IPS display; it’s also powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 processor instead of a HiSilicon Kirin 659 chipset. It’s quite interesting to see Huawei opting for a Snapdragon SoC instead of its own chip with the Nova 2 Lite.

Aside from that, the Nova 2 Lite also has a more modest set of hardware across the board, including less RAM and internal storage at 3GB and 32GB respectively, a microSD card slot, a single 8MP front-facing camera, as well as a 13MP + 2MP dual-camera system on the back. It also comes with a slightly smaller 3,000mAh battery.
Beyond its hardware, the Nova 2 Lite is quite a looker. Much like other new smartphones in the market, it has an 18:9 display with minimal bezels, what appears to be a glass back, and a rear fingerprint sensor.
It still remains to be seen just how much the Huawei Nova 2 Lite will be priced at once it reaches our shores. Chances are, it will be more affordable than the Nova 2i – we’ll find out more come 15 March next week.
