Huawei Nova 2S is expected to debut tomorrow as an improved version of the Nova 2. Its list of unconfirmed specs and features includes the octa-core HiSilicon Kirin 960 processor, dual cameras on both sides, as well as Android Oreo with EMUI 8.0 on top.

Tomorrow should be a very interesting day since both Xiaomi and Huawei have plans to reveal a few new handsets. From Xiaomi, we should get ready for the Redmi 5 and Redmi 5 Plus. Huawei, on the other hand, is expected to unveil an improved version of the Nova 2, simply called the Nova 2S.

The Huawei Nova 2S is rumored to be a 6-inch phablet with a full HD+ screen that has a ratio of 18:9, just like most flagships that come out nowadays. However, the processor inside it is not a top-of-the-line chip, but the high-end HiSilicon Kirin 960 processor (also found in the Huawei Mate 9 flagship). In the camera department, the Nova 2S should come with two 20 MP cameras for selfies, next to a 20MP + 16MP dual camera setup on the back. The operating system preloaded is Android 8.0 Oreo with EMUI 8.0 on top.

The two variants of the Nova 2S feature 4 GB RAM + 64 GB storage and 6 GB RAM + 128 GB storage. Their prices are supposed to be CN¥2,599 (~US$393) and CN¥2,999 (~US$453). None of these details is official yet, but everything should be clear tomorrow, once the special launch event announced by Huawei kicks off.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
