Huawei Nova 2s Now Official with Quad Cameras
The Huawei Nova 2s is considerably more powerful than its siblings, the Huawei Nova 2 and Nova 2 Plus, which were announced earlier this year.
The Huawei Nova 2s is made out of metal and glass, all of its physical keys are placed on the right, while the SIM card tray lies on the left. The phone’s display features rounded corners, and the device comes with a front-facing fingerprint sensor.
On the back of the Huawei Nova 2s, you will notice two cameras, and an LED flash next to them. Those two cameras protrude on the back of the phone, not by much though, the phone shouldn’t wobble on the table or anything of the sort. The Huawei Nova 2s features a 6-inch fullHD+ (2160 x 1080) display which comes with a 2.5D curved glass on top of it.
This smartphone is powered by the Kirin 960 64-bit octa-core SoC, which is Huawei’s flagship processor for last year, and it’s still more than powerful enough. 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.
Android 8.0 Oreo comes out of the box here, and on top of it, you’ll find Huawei’s Emotion UI (EMUI) skin. 16 and 20-megapixel snappers are placed on the back of the Huawei Nova 2s, and we’re looking at RGB and monochrome sensors here (f/1.8 aperture). Now, as far as the phone’s front side is concerned, you’ll find 20 and 2-megapixel cameras there (f/2.0 aperture).
