Huawei Nova 2S coming soon to China
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.
