Huawei held a special event today for its latest addition to the Nova series. The company introduced the Nova 2s with 16 MP RGB + 20 MP Monochrome camera setup on the back and a 6” FullView display with a fingerprint scanner below it on the front.
The tall screen comes with Full HD+ resolution of 1080 x 2160 pixels. 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 two cameras at the back have f/1.8 aperture, while the front ones have relatively slower f/2.0 lenses. The front snapper is 20 MP and is coupled by a secondary 2 MP camera and an LED flash.
Huawei was keen to brag the Nova 2s supports Face Unlock. Interestingly enough the function is still not available at the Mate 10 series but its appearance might be a hint for an upcoming arrival.
There is 3,340 mAh battery on board that 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.
Offered in Black, Gray, Red, Blue and Rose Gold, the Huawei Nova 2s costs CNY2,699/$407 for the 4GB/64GB version, CNY 2,999/$453 for the 6GB/64GB option and CNY3,499/$528 for the 6GB/128GB variant.
