Huawei Nova 2s with dual rear and front cameras unveiled

The Huawei Nova 2s is a dual SIM (GSM and GSM) smartphone that accepts Nano-SIM and Nano-SIM. Along with these two variants, the company has also announced special Yixing Zhang customized variant with 6GB RAM with 128GB internal storage which is priced at 3399 Yuan (approximately Rs 33,178). This smartphone is fueled by the Kirin 960 64-bit octa-core SoC, which is Huawei's flagship processor for previous year, and it's still more than powerful enough. The phone comes with a dedicated selfie flash for the front camera, facial recognition functionality and a premium shiny glass back. We don't expect the Huawei Nova 2s to have a screen resolution or battery capacity advantage either, but the cameras are a different story. The phone comes as a high-end offering running Android Oreo out of the box, dual camera setup at both the rear and front, and an 18:9 almost bezel-less display. This smartphone features 4GB or 6GB of RAM, and no matter which variant you opt to get, you'll get 128GB of internal storage, which you can expand using a microSD card. There is also a fingerprint scanner which is into the home button below the display on the front of the device. The front camera sports a combination of 20MP + 2MP dual-camera system with f/2.0 aperture and supports 1080p video recording.

On the left side of the Nova 2s device, one can see the device barren, however, right at the right edge, the device comes with volume buttons as well as the power key. It measures 156.9 x 75.1 x 7.5 mm and weighs 169 grams. Android 8.0 Oreo comes out of the box here, and on top of it, you'll find Huawei's Emotion UI (EMUI) skin.

The Nova 2s will be available in the colours: Black, Gray, Red, Rose Gold, and Blue at a starting price of 2699 yuan (which roughly translates to Rs 26,500) for the 4GB RAM/64GB storage version, going all the way to 2999 yuan (roughly Rs 29,000) for the 6GB RAM/64GB version.
