Design and Display

Parading a stylish metallic body, one may not be wrong saying the Huawei Nova 2S does look the part. It sports a pleasantly svelte profile at just 6.9 millimetres, according to Huawei. This should fit decently well into your hands despite the huge size. It boasts CNC finishing.

The Huawei Nova 2S crams in a massive 6-inch LTPS IPS display with a resolution of 1,080 x 1,920 pixels. You can hardly make out the side bezels while the top and bottom sections of the front are slimmer than usual. The result is a touchscreen with an 18:9 aspect ratio.


The main selling point of the Huawei Nova 2S is what it offers on the camera front. It provides you with a whopping four cameras!

Huawei Nova 2S packs 16MP and 20MP cameras, both with f/1.8 aperture, on the rear. Flip the device around and you find another combo of 20MP and 2MP sensors for selfies. You may not be wrong expecting great low-light performance – Huawei promises that.

Hardware and Software

Under the hood, the Huawei Nova 2S carries an octa-core HiSilicon Kirin 960 SoC with four 2.36GHz cores and four 1.7GHz cores. The processor gets backing from 4GB or 6GB RAM, depending on the variant you buy.

You get 32GB, 64GB or 128GB storage out of the box. This should suffice for most users’ needs. The Android phone, which boots a customised version of Android 8.0 Oreo, also accepts microSD card for expansion.

Other Specs and Features

The Huawei Nova 2S brings along a 3,340mAh Li-Po battery. Huawei says you can expect longer battery life, considering how efficiently the processor uses power. The juicer supports fast charging.

If audio is a major consideration, you may not be disappointed. You get promise of 3D stereo sound as that you experience at a theatre with Huawei Histen sound algorithm at work.

Sensor options include a fingerprint scanner, which somehow still finds space on the front.
